  • Alison

    “Nice cottage but advertised as enclosed garden and it’s not as there is no back gate so my two dogs kept escaping which was very stressful and made the garden unusable.”

    I chose this cottage because it was advertised as an enclosed garden which is misleading. Nice location. Sofas very low though.

The property

Located upon Holy Island, Northumberland, is Causeway Cottage, a well-positioned, three-bedroom abode. Enjoying sea views to the front and a convenient location near the beach and a hub of local amenities, Causeway Cottage makes the ideal base for a family seascape, inviting five guests and two furry companions. Benefit from two off-road parking spaces before travelling through the front garden and into the home. Firstly, reach the spacious living/dining room, where you can rest after a day of travelling upon the plush sofas, before gathering to plan your upcoming days. Head into the kitchen to fulfil your self-catering needs, where you can keep on top of your washing and prepare meals, ahead of dining indoors or outdoors within the enclosed, pet-friendly garden; set the patio furniture whilst enjoying views across the surrounding countryside. As the sun sets, return indoors to catch some rest, selecting between a king-size, a double, and a single bedroom, all well-presented and serviced by a sleek shower room. Come morning, prepare to explore Holy Island, starting off with your amenities, where you can stock up on the essentials, dine out and enjoy a tipple, selecting between The Ship Inn Holy Island, and The Crown & Anchor, or head to the Lindisfarne Mead winery to sample some local produce. For attractions, tour Lindisfarne Priory and Castle, enjoy a stroll along Holy Island Beach, or travel a little further for a nature-filled hike across Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve. Travel over to mainland Northumberland, explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by visiting Berwick-upon-Tweed Beach Front, or mender alongside River Tweed before dining out at one of the many riverfront restaurants on offer. Continue north, stopping off at Seahouses and Bamburgh, both popular seaside locations, where you can board a Golden Gate Farne Islands Boat Trip to explore the coast some more, or enjoy the sweeping terrain of Bamburgh Beach, before climbing up to Bamburgh Castle and its elevated position. Experience all of this at Causeway Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location

HOLY ISLAND

Berwick-upon-Tweed 14 miles; Bamburgh 16miles; Seahouses 18 miles

Holy Island is home to Lindisfarne Priory, one of the most important centres of early Christianity in Anglo Saxon England. The monastery was founded in AD 635 by St Aiden, but the island is more famously associated with St Cuthbert whose remains were carried by monks to Durham, and there they still remain. The island is now a popular tourist attraction with many visitors making a pilgrimage to the priory or following in the footsteps of the monks along St Cuthbert’s Way. Situated in the heart of the Heritage Coastline, the exciting journey to Holy Island begins with the essential check of the tides, the island is accessed via a long causeway which is impassable once the tide comes in. There is ample central parking and a short stroll will take you to the priory. The village itself has quaint tea rooms and pubs and a museum detailing the island’s interesting history. Those who enjoy the great outdoors will be delighted with the Northumberland Coastal Path, which runs through Beal just two miles inland and onwards down the Heritage Coast, offering stunning scenery along the way. Holy Island is within easy reach of both St Oswald's Way and St Cuthbert's Way and there are some great birdwatching sites nearby. Northumberland’s beautiful coastline, Alnwick Castle and Gardens, the Cheviots and the fascinating border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, are all only a short drive away. The pretty village of Ford with its castle and craft shops is 13 miles away, part of the Ford and Etal Estate which has facilities for cycling and fishing, as well as a mini railway – ideal for all the family. There are also excellent golfing opportunities, with eight golf courses within 20 miles of Holy Island. A superb base for exploring all that the region has to offer.
