Extra Amenities

Crossing the tidal causeway to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is just the beginning of a wonderful journey back in time and place, continued by the good fortune of staying in this very ancient building. This detached property is said to be 500 years old and built from stone taken from the Priory after the dissolution of the monasteries. Today, it provides a warm and welcoming retreat, perfect for friends and families making the most of every moment in this very special place. Truly tucked away in the corner of St Cuthbert’s Square with views of the sea, Lindisfarne Castle and the Priory, and refurbished in 2018, the Old Granary now has all the contemporary comforts along with quirky features, such as the beamed ceilings made from the masts of old herring boats.

There is no outside space at the property, however you have the whole island to explore.

Steeped in history and with an abundance of wild birds, plants and rare habitats within the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, the island is a seasonal feeding ground for migrating birds and resident grey seals. Visitors are always sad to leave the island, but there is much to see and do nearby with the towns and villages of the Heritage Coast under a 30-minute drive.

The island also has a post office and shop selling all basic provisions as well as home made food. Places to visit include Berwick-upon-Tweed, 13 miles, Bamburgh with its castle, 15 miles, Seahouses for boat trips to the Farne Islands, 19 miles, and Beadnell, 20 miles. Go hill walking in the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park, or visit the many historic houses, gardens and abbeys in the Scottish Borders. Edinburgh is 40 minutes by train from Berwick. Beach 440 yards. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant 185 yards.
