The property

Situated in a prime location in the centre of the village is this incredible property, a honeypot cottage from where family and friends can explore the sought-after Holy Island in all its glory. Be sure to check the tides before exploring the island as it is accessed via a long causeway that becomes completely inaccessible when the tide comes in. Start your adventure at Curlew Cottage and settle in for a cosy evening in front of the woodburning stove, admiring the sitting room's interior as you flick through the TV for an evening film. From the kitchen, fitted with all the necessary appliances, rustle up delicious meals for you and your guests, whilst an alternative dining arrangement awaits in the rear courtyard, perfect for alfresco dining. Also on the ground floor is a handy cloakroom, whilst the main family bathroom hosts a bath with a power shower, great for a morning refresh. Continuing to impress on the first floor are three spacious bedrooms with attractive décor and ample storage, comprising a king-size, a twin and a trundle room, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement. Curlew Cottage is just a short walk away from all the amenities, gift shops and pubs, as well as the ruins of Lindisfarne Priory and the Lindisfarne Heritage Centre. Only basic groceries available on the Island, please plan ahead for your food shopping. Explore the surrounding area of Holy Island with the popular Lindisfarne Castle and the incredible St Cuthbert’s Way, a long-distance walking trail which boasts awe-inspiring views for nature lovers and photographers. More outdoor adventure awaits down the coast, heading along the Northumberland Coast Path over to Bamburgh, the castle and Grace Darling museum offering a day out filled with rich history. Other must-see destinations await at the charming market town of Alnwick where you'll find Alnwick Castle and Gardens, where alot of scenes from Harry Potter were filmed; Berwick-upon-Tweed with its ancient Elizabethan walls and castle; and the gateway to the Farne Islands at Seahouses with the renowned Grace Darling lighthouse.

About the location


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.
