Cut off from the mainland twice a day by the incoming tide, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne allows visitors to experience complete tranquillity and timelessness, and these Grade II listed fishermen’s cottages are ideally placed to enjoy this unique location. Offering contemporary comfort yet retaining charm and original character, they sit within walking distance of the harbour and long sandy beaches. The island, a fine walking and bird watching destination, is dominated by 16th century Lindisfarne Castle (NT), standing dramatically on a rocky outcrop – the ruins of Lindisfarne Priory, the 7th century seat of Christian learning, are also close by. Across the causeway, Northumberland’s many delights such as Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses for boat trips to the Farne Islands’ bird and seal colonies, and Alnwick Castle and Gardens, 25 miles, are within easy reach. Though each property is completely self contained it is possible to book Haven Cottage and Lee Cottage to accommodate larger groups (maximum sleeps 4+1). Shop 200 yards, pub serving food 500 yards.
