Guest Reviews


    • “Causeway House”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The House is near to the centre of the village, yet it is still so peaceful and quiet, in its own cul-de-sac. The bedrooms are downstairs, so the views from upstairs- the living room and dining room area are fantastic, especially in the early morning when you can see the wildlife in the nearby fields.You can actually watch people doing the pilgrims walk! Even when the island is busy, you still feel a sense of being away from it all, absolutely blissfull!”

    • “Holy Island is a lovely place. A great beaches which our dog loved also loads of walks. We went on the island on day 1 and didn't leave the island till the day to go home(day 3). Would definitely go there again. The house was lovely and the views were spectacular, especially the seals. Only thing was it was a bit pricey for 3 nights but that wouldn't stop us going again.”

About the location


Ford 13 miles; Berwick-upon-Tweed 14 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. 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. 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. A superb base for exploring all that the region has to offer.
