Coasts and castles #2.
The tiny Northumbrian fishing village of Craster sits nestled in the rocky coastline where it’s very small harbour provides protection for the fishing boats and cobbles which bring the fish to Robsons smoking house. Here they are prepared and sold online around the world, Craster kippers are a regional favourite, along with smoked salmon and cod, the family business is renowned for it’s quality kippers.
We bought some to bring home to South Shields with us and reheated them by immersing the fish in a jug of hot water for 6 minutes and served them for breakfast with brown bread, butter, and marmalade – delicious!
If you plan to visit please note that the car park is a few hundred yards outside of the village, there are no facilities for car parking for non residents, please see map link.
