Naming the 10 most charming fishing villages across the country, the magazine has taken into account all the villages have to offer, including restaurants, boats, hotels, museums and harbours, as well as listing some important local history and recommending websites to visit for extra information.
Of Craster, the feature recommends visiting the remains of Dunstanburgh Castle, eating at the Jolly Fisherman and taking a fishing trip from the harbour.
Fergus Collins, editor of BBC Countryfile Magazine, said: “We are drawn to beautiful places that also have a deep sense of purpose and history – and this selection of bustling seaside hubs and harbours are the jewels in our coastal crown.”
The full list, in alphabetical order is:
Beer, South Devon
Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk
Clovelly, North Devon
Plockton, Ross and Cromarty
West Mersea, Essex
