    A superb family home, in a brilliant location to get to all that stretch of the Northumberland coast has to offer. The house is wonderfully equipped, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Two great sitting rooms, and four extremely comfortable bedrooms. Christon Bank itself has a pub and a small shop, but Alnwick is approx 5 miles away for a Supermarket. We had a wonderful stay & highly recommend Grey Croft!

    Great family holiday at Greycroft. The house accommodated the whole family well. Close to the lovely Northumberland coast. Lovely and warm with plenty of hot water for everyone. Very well equipped with everything you could need.

    Super holiday home for extended family holiday



    out of 10

    Characterful, spacious holiday home for a family holiday with great beaches and castles on the doorstep. The house and secure, sunny rear garden coped with our two Labrador dogs easily. Nice cycling routes from the door.



    out of 10

    We had an excellent walking holiday despite the weather which was a bit wet ! Quiet location which suited us down to the ground as there were plenty of good eating places local to Grey Croft. The house was very homely , warm and comfortable and proved to be a good base for our Northumbrian holiday. Would certainly recommend and plan to return in the near future when hopefully the weather will be much kinder !



    out of 10

    Very good - owner sent helpful information beforehand. Excellent secure garden for the dogs (it would have been a bonus if the grass had been cut). Sadly the store and local pub were poor. Expensive if only a few people stay. A stair gate would have been good - but overall would certainly recommend.



    out of 10

    We had a lovely family holiday. There is lots of room to holiday comfortably as a large family plus dogs! Would highly recommend Grey Croft - a beautiful part of the country!
