Cut off from the mainland twice a day to create a semi-island, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne allows visitors to experience complete tranquillity and timelessness. This Grade II listed fishermen’s cottage is ideally placed to enjoy this unique location.
There is a book library in both properties with information about the history of the local area, and also a selection of unique postcards that each tell a story and show how the island has changed throughout the years. A DVD of the TV programme Time Team is available showing their visits to the island and excavations carried out.
The island, a fine walking and bird watching destination, is dominated by 16th century Lindisfarne Castle, standing dramatically on a rocky outcrop – the ruins of Lindisfarne Priory, the 7th century seat of Christian learning and where the Lindisfarne Gospels were created.
The road from the island was opened in 1954 by Queen Elizabeth II and on the mainland are Northumberland’s many delights within easy driving distance; Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses for boat trips to the Farne Islands’ bird and seal colonies, and Alnwick Castle and Gardens.
The cottage offers contemporary comfort yet retains its original charm and character, with bespoke designer oak table and chairs and is within walking distance of the harbour and long sandy beaches. The property is designed for couples, but offers a stowaway Z-bed for one additional friend or child. Though each property is completely self-contained, a lockable interconnecting door allows both cottages to be booked by a single family or group (maximum sleeps 4+2). Local carry-out meals available. Shops 200 yards, pubs serving food 500 yards.
