Built in the 1660’s, Sally’s Cottage, is upside down, apartment style living in one of the oldest buildings on Holy Island. In the centre of the village, but tucked behind the Front street, Sally’s is convenient for all the Island amenities, but private at the same time.

Sally’s Cottage is perfect for couples, we are lucky to welcome many honeymooners, but we also have our families of ‘explorer children’ coming for the lovely beaches surrounding our Island.

The large, private garden is perfect for relaxing in, especially as we have added a lovely summerhouse.

The Perfect Location

On The Island

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne has been a place of religious pilgrimage and retreat for centuries. It was St Aidan who arrived on the Island in 635AD to start his Monastery and from here the Christian faith spread across the world. Today the Island attracts many visitors for its natural beauty, peacefulness and wildlife.

Lindisfarne Castle dominates the Island and is now under the care of the National Trust. The views from the Castle are simply breath-taking so remember to bring your camera with you! 

Other attractions on the Island include the ruins of the ancient Lindisfarne Priory, The Lindisfarne Centre where you can see copies of the famous Lindisfarne Gospels and St Aidan’s Winery home of the locally produced Lindisfarne Mead. The Island also offers many beautiful circular walks along its many beaches and picturesque countryside.

The Perfect Location

Further Afield

The area around Holy Island or Lindisfarne is perfect for the outdoors types. There are beaches just a 15 minute drive away at Cocklawburn Dunes Nature Reserve, then down to Bamburgh. Inland there are the Cheviot hills, just behind Wooler with walks around Belford. But really you will want to remain on Holy Island, it is such a mini paradise.

Castles & History…

Northumberland has more castles than any other county in England. A legacy of its turbulent past, including the infamous Border wars which raged from the 14th to 16th centuries, Northumberland boasts over 70 castle sites.

Unspoilt Coastline…

The dramatic Northumbrian coastline is quite rightly the main draw to most visitors to the region, and on Holy Island you couldn’t be better placed to make the most of it. A short drive over the causeway takes you to some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in the country.

The Cheviots and Beyond…

The Cheviots are a range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border between Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Millions of years ago, lava cooled to form the distinctive rounded hills, which dominate the northern end of the National Park, and are full of hidden delights.

Food & Drink…

Just because you’re on an island it doesn’t mean that eating out has to be compromised on. There are many excellent pubs and cafes on the Island, so you are never far away from a good meal even when the tide is high. All the Island’s amenities are within easy walking distance.

Local Attractions…

As well as the many attractions on the island, you’re only a short journey from all that the mainland has to offer. Explore coastal villages, visit the Alnwick Garden, or indulge in adventure activities of all kinds. Clay pigeon shooting, gliding, water sports, fishing, ballooning and quad biking are all close by.
