The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is only a short drive away, cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast moving tides.

Lindisfarne Priory is full of rich history and there are some delightful pubs and cafes on the island. Nearby is also Budle Bay, a protected bird sanctuary, a haven for birdwatchers.

We have had such a relaxing break, it has done us all so much good. The cottage is perfect. The boys have been in the games room most of the time ! We love the fire, it's been so cosy after a day out. The Hobdens - 6th August 2019
Really enjoyed our short stay in this delightful cottage. Nicest & best equipped we have stayed in. Heather & Jan - 6th August 2019
