Description

Large traditional detached farmhouse situated on Holy Island. A holiday home with a difference - there is something etherial about being "stranded" on an island. The tide cuts the island off twice a day (see safe crossing times which vary with the tides), and when the tide recedes revealing the causeway, you can drive on and off the island and explore more of the County.

So when you are on the island you'll find quite a bit to do. The Priory, the small independent shops, the Lindisfarne Mead distillery, two pubs which both serve food, two cafes, a post office store, there are many walks around and across the island, and the area is a mecca for wildlife lovers, photographers and dark skies enthusiasts. Note the castle is currently closed for major renovations and is due to re-open April 2018, but stands proud at the end of the Castle Walk overlooking the sound between the island and the mainland at Ross Sands.

The house is traditionally stone built and it has been a working farm and residential house until the present owners purchased it at the end of 2016.

Reviews

We have known Holy Island for a lifetime, and it was good to return with the UK part of the family for a very relaxing time during Holy Week. St Coombs Farmhouse is a lovely property. It has a nice, homely feel about it, very spacious with various living spaces. The location is ideal, just at the west end of the Crooked Lonnon, with fine walks from your doorstep. The centre of the village is less than five minutes away, while a 10 minute walk takes you to the sand dunes and the wonderful Sandham beach beyond. The property is superlatively well equipped, and furnishings warm and welcoming. Being part of a working farm is fine, although you have to be keen on being woken at 5 am by the roosters. Personally I thought that added to the charm. We would go back there tomorrow!! - 24th April 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at St Coombs on Lindisfarne. The house itself was lovely - spacious, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Also in a lovely location surrounded by fields slightly away from the village - but still only a short walk to the pub! Lots to do on Lindisfarne including the Priory, the Castle and lots of walks. - 22nd March 2019
We have stayed on Holy Island many times, but this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. St Coombs Farmhouse is beautiful, and in an idyllic location. It is comfortable, spacious and very well equipped, with every detail thought through and good quality fixtures and fittings. Would definitely return here. - 6th March 2019
My husband and I, along with our Beagle Ruby, stayed at St Coombs Farmhouse for just over a week. My sister and her partner also stayed for a few nights to meet up and enjoy a relaxing few days on this wonderful 'island'. The farmhouse was quite outstanding. It was very comfortable due to it's large rooms which were warm and cozily furnished, with a large farmhouse kitchen with an Aga and a sitting room with lovely open fire to burn logs.We found everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking meals and the beds were large comfortable and clean. I did notice that the main bedroom duvet cover was starting to wear and the seam had come apart in one corner. Not problematic but just an observation. We loved sitting in the conservatory as again, the furnishings were very comfortable. We were delighted to be rewarded with a Hawfinch in the garden late one afternoon which was very pleasing as part of the purpose for coming was to do a spot of birding. We also had a Snow Bunting close by along with all the usual autumn visitors one would expect at this time of year. I'd also like to say a special thanks to Stay Northumbria staff who not only added a last minute request for an additional night's stay at the accommodation without any fuss but also managed very quickly to get the Aga reset remotely when a power cut shut it down. The impact of being without the heat was soon felt but the other cooker, the underfloor heating and the fire came into their own. We've been to Lindisfarne many times over the last forty odd years but this was the best accommodation we've had. Will definitely stay again next time we come. I would have no reservations of booking through Stay Northumbria. - 4th November 2018
The farmhouse was comfortable, clean and well appointed. We had ample room for 4 adults, 2 dogs and all our clobber. We loved the Aga which gave the place a warm, homely feel and on which we cooked several hearty meals. The conservatory was a fabulous suntrap for sitting, reading and for star gazing after dark. The garden was private and secure for our 2 dogs, and the visiting chickens and ducks! It was bliss to be able to step out into the countryside, surrounded by bird life and walk to the coast in various directions away from the bulk of visitors. The shops and visitor attractions were just a short stroll away and we could pop to the harbour or north shore when the visitors had gone. Would love to come back for a longer stay. - 17th October 2018
We had a lovely stay at St Coombs Farmhouse. It's really well equipped and there are three separate rooms to chill in. The conservatory was lovely to read in. Kids complained of a few too many spiders for their liking, but it's not like we're living in a city. Would recommend this place to anyone. - 6th September 2018
Great location, clean and well-presented house if a little pricey. Minor gripes only. First, bins were overflowing with rubbish (not all bagged) attracting wasps. Secondly, plumbing was a little erratic with downstairs cistern intermittently overflowing and en suite basin taps squirting rather than running. Otherwise excellent property and we would happily return. - 31st August 2018
A lovely stay in a tastefully renovated farmhouse on Holy Island. The rooms are spacious enough to accommodate daughters,spouses and grandchildren, with good walking access to Sandham beaches or the village. Enjoyed by all . - 25th July 2018
St Coombs Farmhouse is a larger than average house just outside Lindisfarne's village, convenient for shops and pubs, but also for walking to the Castle and Nature Reserve. Unlike many properties on the island, it has no sea view, but compensates for this with a conservatory looking onto its enclosed garden (we particularly enjoyed this during the thunderstorm of our first night!). We had a number of minor niggles / things in need of maintenance (downstairs shower doesn't drain very well, nor does handbasin in en suite bathroom; a lock on the upstairs bathroom would be welcome; we ran out of mugs before we had filled the dishwasher), trivial but letting down a generally very well furnished property. Other issues might have been resolved by more contact with management locally: we found the house overheated for (an admittedly exceptional) summer, and would have welcomed more guidance on disposal of recycling (other than glass). - 29th June 2018
Lovely house, great location. Couldn't have been more comfortable. We would highly recommend it as an Island retreat. - 13th June 2018
Loved it. We had a great time. The enclosed garden and the lovely large and warm kitchen was much appreciated. Friendly gardener. Great location for walks, especially circular. I would recommend it to anyone and would definitely like to go again, perhaps in a winter time. It was good to ha ve the two ovens as not everyone is used to an aga.we did use both. The beds were very comfortable and it was good to have two lounges.the little lounge by the kitchen was good if you wanted a quiet read without tv etc. Everything was very clean and in excellent condition. We would have like to use the telescope but the nights were rather cloudy, perhaps another time. It. Was fun to watch the chickens and ducks at odd times during the day and we soon got used to the cock crowing. - 10th June 2018
We had a really enjoyable holiday in St Coombs Farmhouse. The house is spacious yet cosy and comfortable and provided us with everything we needed. The sunny weather allowed us to sit out in the lovely gardens, even at 11 pm to wonder at the amazing starlit sky! - 2nd May 2018
We have stayed on Lindisfarne many times and this farmhouse is one of the best. Spacious and warm and comfortable. The conservatory and garden are lovely. The Aga is a joy to cook on. The welcome pack too was really nice, however the kitchen is not well equipped. expect chipped cups and the worst teapot in the world. It is next door to a large farm with poultry so be prepared for crowing cockerels. The location is perfect. The underfloor heating - lovely. The showers - a bit temperamental. Overall - a really, really great farmhouse - backed up with top-notch customer service from Stay Northumberland. - 17th April 2018
We absolutely love the beauty of Holy Island and the Northumberland Coast, we visit every year. This year we decided to stay on the Island, it was absolutely wonderful. The farm house that we stayed in St Coombs, is fabulous there was plenty of room for us all. The position of the farm house is excellent, it has a breathtaking conservatory with a lovely enclosed private garden. We have used Stay Northumbria several times now - 23rd August 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Coombes Farm house, beautiful location, house and facilities would definitely recommend! - 27th July 2017
Lovely house in a great location. Just a little bit out of the village, which gives you a bit more privacy. But just a very short walk into the village for pubs, cafes etc. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Lovely garden. - 23rd June 2017
Our family of 5 had a great week at St Coombs. The location and situation is fantastic for a family with 3 young children with the farm next door. The house is located on the island which allows you to enjoy it when the tide is up and the tourists visiting have left. The property is to a high standard and is comfortable. - 10th June 2017
