We had a drink in the Jolly Fisherman when we were in Craster a few years back and you're right - wonderful view from the beer garden! I've really enjoyed catching up with your holiday memories. The photos are wonderful.

The candles are from Cath Kidston. They are quite expensive for white candles with dots on but I do love them - bit mad really considering all we do is set light to them!!!

Love Emma xxx


You holiday destination looks great. We went to Cornwall and renting a house is just becoming so expensive. I think we should branch out to somewhere different. Trouble is I like a bit of retail therapy on holiday and love pottering around the galleries and occasionally purchasing something! Love Emma x


Fab post Lucy - I just love the photo of the rocks with the castle in the background. Still haven't been to Northumberland, but will one day...
Glad Little Lady is doing well at school and that you are ok too.


Craster looks gorgous and what a veiw you had. As ever fab pictures...I slmost reached in and took that pint... I feel that at 8.55am I already need it with the little people arguing since dawn.
Our favourite haunt is a frinds holiday home in Dartmouth, as soon as we arrive and I look out to the boats I feel so happy.

Such a lovely part of the country. I have so many happy childhood memories of Seahouses - which is not that far away. Lovely pictures

What a lovely post, and what a fab holiday, I'd be very happy to stay there for a couple of weeks..so relaxing.


it looks fantastic, we've had some lovely holidays near there, and if our house ever sells then we might even move near there, which would be just heavenly. xx


Wow Lucy another great post you have such a great way with words and you have such a eye for great photo's.


Wat a lovely post, so nice seeing more photos of Northumberland. We had our first holiday there this June, after having wanted to go for years. It was magic - I spent some time reminiscing whilst I posted about our time there, a couple of weeks ago. We went to Craster, those little gardens right on the edge of the harbour are beautiful, we just sat on a bench and gazed and gazed, and yes, we did buy some Craster kippers, in fact that is why we went there to begin with. I have all our Northumberland photos continually scrolling through on the digital photo frame, great.


Hi Lucy
Thanks for sharing some of your holiday with us.
I agree that see-saw is fab!
Do you have a front view of that mermaid, she looks beautiful.
Very pleased to hear both you and LL are ok and school life is going well.

Thankyou Luce It was wonderful reading today I was absorbed in every word you wrote and felt like I was there with your wonderful photos :-) xx


Ah, Northumberland, the county of my forefathers. It does have it's own very special magic contained in it's sweeping moorlands and rugged coastline doesn't it? It's something tangible, it can be felt in the air. I feel exactly the same way about Cornwall too, it has the same kind of hold over me. Later in life I discovered that my grandfathers family on my mothers side moved from Cornwall to Durham in 1872, at about the same time that the Northumberland folks started to move into Durham too, for the work in the coal mines. I love both counties with a passion and intensity I can't describe Your post has simultaneously left me feeling uplifted and deflated at the same time! Not even sure if that's possible, but that's how I feel right now. Glad you enjoyed your break though, precious time with your family.

Have you ever considered home schooling for your children? Lots more people are doing it these days, I would imagine it takes a lot of dedication, you strike me as the kind of person who could do that though. Then again, perhaps when you're at your little knitters circle enjoying a cuppa and a chat you might decide you're happy they're at school!!!


Hi Lucy,
Fantastic to read your holidaystory; and for me, as a hugh fan of your country, great to get to know new parts of the country !! We have not been on that side of the country yet but now seeing those pictures... who knows !
Greetings, Janneke


I could almost reach in the photo and dip my toe in the rock pool! It is such a shame about the village shop closing down, aren't you tempted to start it up again!


OOO! I can almost smell it! That salty seaweedy smell, that gets in your hair; and the inch of sand left in the bottom of the bath when the day is over! Ah! happy days!


We a simialr thing bout Fowey in Cornwall. Some places just have that feeling about them.


Absolutely stunning photos! I'd love to visit Craster; it reminds me of Crail...
