The 18th century millhouse, from which our 3 holiday cottages have been created, is thought to be on the site of the original mill that served the monks on Lindisfarne for many centuries. Today, the exterior retains all the style and charm of the original building, whilst the interiors have benefited from the highest quality eco conversion and have been finished with superior quality furnishings and equipment, with designer fabrics used throughout. The cottages are extremely well insulated and double glazed so you'll stay warm and cosy whatever the season.

In the migratory months the waters outside the cottages play host to vast flocks of geese and other birds on their way to eastern europe and beyond - it's a wonderful sight and we also have regular sightings of deer and foxes.

The Byre is a delightful 'upside down' cottage, with a stunning upstairs living room with a very special piece de resistance - a wonderful ceiling to floor picture window with incredible sea views. You can see Beal Causeway in the distance and Holy Island to the right. You can sit an enjoy the calming views all day long. The living room has a flat-screen TV and is furnished with deep, comfy sofas and armchairs. There is also a DVD player, a small selection of DVDs, a radio, plenty of books, board games, cards, maps, walking guides, free wireless Internet, and an iPod docking station so you won't be bored, even - dare we say it - on a rainy day!

The ground floor kitchen has an attractive, original northumbrian stone arch opening onto the dining area which is stylishly equipped with a large contemporary oak dining table with 8 chairs. The windows by the worktop and sink overlook the garden and enjoy gorgeous sea views - doing the dishes isn't supposed to be this therapeutic! The kitchen is equipped with all the gadgetry and essentials serious cooks expect, including a food processor, great knives and plenty of good crockery, cutlery and glasses, so you aren't constantly emptying the dishwasher.

The 3 bedrooms are all beautifully appointed. The upstairs double bedroom enjoys wonderful sea views and has an en suite with shower and bath. Downstairs, there is one double bedroom, again with those sea views and an en suite with bath and shower. There is also a downstairs twin bedroom which is specially designed for the mobility impaired and it has an easy to use en suite bathroom with shower. All the beds are blissfully comfortable and top quality bed linens and deep, fluffy towels complete the picture.

Little extras - there is a portable tv for your convenience, and for sunny days there are swimming towels and a Harris Tweed picnic blanket. The gentle Farrow and Ball painted walls and neutral carpets and floors create a very tranquil environment for your holiday.

A larger group can be accommodated by booking The Byre along with one or both of the other cottages.

Northern England region

Lindisfarne Bay Cottages are set immediately on the water's edge overlooking Holy Island with the distinctive silhouette of Lindisfarne Castle on the horizon.

The bay is sheltered by the natural breakwater formed by Holy Island, so the tide laps gently at the foot of the garden. We are fortunate to be located within the Northumberland AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), The Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve and the corresponding Site of Special Scientific Interest. This means that when you stay with us you will almost inevitably see some kind of wonderful birdlife on the waters just outside the cottages.

In this stunning location, you will find unrivalled bird-watching opportunities, especially during the migratory season. Joggers will enjoy the quiet country lanes and keen cyclists will appreciate that access to the Coast and Castles Cycle Way is very near. At night, the lack of light pollution makes for perfect star gazing.

If you haven't visited this part of the world before, you will be pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of attractions available within easy driving distance. Visit the wildernesses of the Northumberland National Park, or the beautiful long white beaches all along the coast.

For those who like a city fix during their holidays, Edinburgh is 90 minutes north, and Newcastle is a 60 minute drive to the south.

Berwick-Upon-Tweed

At the end of a lane, positioned midway between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Bamburgh directly on Northumberland's Heritage Coast, our luxury self-catering holiday cottages are well located for a holiday exploring the ancient Kingdom of Northumbria.

Just a few minutes drive from the cottages (or a walk away for keen walkers) is BEAL CAUSEWAY linking the mainland to Holy Island. This is always an exhilarating trip and once on the island you can explore the ruins of Lindisfarne Priory (English Heritage) or visit iconic Lindisfarne Castle (National Trust). There's a pretty harbour and lovely walks all around the shores (including sandy beaches). In the village itself there is of course a good choice of cafes, pubs and little shops to delay your day further...

A 15 minute drive to the south (passing beautiful unspoilt Budle Bay on the way - a top spot for birdwatchers) will bring you to glorious BAMBURGH with its stunningly placed fortified castle and famous white beach - perfect for a picnic. Here you will find shops (including a great butcher's), pubs, restaurants, playground, teashops and the Grace Darling Museum.

An absolute must in season (Spring-October,) is a trip to SEAHOUSES half an hour away, for an unforgettable boat trip to the FARNE ISLANDS. We have to mention that the trips are subject to calm seas, if it gets choppy they are likely to be cancelled. Assuming the sea is on your side, you are guaranteed close sightings of the huge seal colonies, puffins, terns, kittiwakes, eider ducks, guillemots and more. There are various trips available, some of which include alighting on the islands and stepping through the nesting sites on a boardwalk. Very lucky guests might even see minke whales and porpoises.

We are just a short drive from the A1, linking EDINBURGH and the Scottish Borders in the north with NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE in the south. A day in Edinburgh is a fantastic experience (90 minutes by car, also an easy train journey from Berwick). Lively Newcastle is an hour's drive away, and is also accesible by train from Berwick. It has the added attractions of the Sage Gateshead and the Baltic Contemporary Art Gallery.

Easy access puts all of the other attractions of Northumberland within reach for day-trips, including ALNWICK Castle (where scenes from Harry Potter were shot) , Alnwick Garden (less than half an hour away) and Chillingham Castle with its unique herd of wild cattle (the castle is idiosyncratically restored and includes a pretty authentic torture chamber - well worth a visit) . There's also CRAGSIDE (National Trust) , and CRASTER - a pretty, busy harbour where you can buy fantastic Craster kippers at Robsons Smokehouse and great fresh crab sandwiches at the Jolly Fisherman pub. From here you can enjoy a dramatic, yet easy walk along low cliffs to DUNSTANBURGH CASTLE (there is no road to the medieval castle ruins, just the pathway hugging the low cliffs along the seashore).

ALNMOUTH (30-40 minutes away) is beautifully set on the headland where the River Aln meets the sea - enjoy a great Sunday lunch at the Red Lion Inn then take a walk along the links, beach, river or round the village. WARKWORTH (45 minutes away), on the lovely River Coquet has rowing boats for hire, idyllic riverside walks and a pretty village to explore, plus an English Heritage Castle.

Even Durham (90 minutes away) with its hauntingly beautiful, ancient cathedral is within striking distance.

Inland, away from the coast, visitors will enjoy the grandeur and wildernesses of the Northumberland National Park which include vast expanses of moorlands and crags (including the Cheviot hills). You can explore Northumbria's Roman past at Housesteads Roman Fort, Vindolanda Roman Fort and Museum, and, of course along Hadrian's Wall itself - keen walkers will be spoilt for choice.

Within a short drive from us you can find horse riding stables, golf, gliding, wind surfing beaches and many other attractions. See 'activities' on the links section of our website for more details.

Whatever your interests, we are confident that Northumberland will surpass your expectations, and we have the accommodation to match!

"The best holiday cottage we have stayed in"

The Byre was an excellent holiday cottage, set in the most stunning surroundings we felt the luxury of all that the owners provided. Set on the edge of the shoreline the Byre provided us with the perfect get away for a group of friends.
We were given a starter pack of wine and delicious cake and the owners were on hand if we needed them, yet they never felt intrusive. The cottage contained all you needed to prepare meals, with some cookery books to help make decisions about what to eat.
A special mention to Pauline who sorts the bookings and supervises and cleans the cottages. They were excellently serviced. I can think of no negative comments as this cottage was perfect and I would return tomorrow. I have certainly recommended you to friends and family. Thankyou.
