Lindisfarne Bay Cottages Information
Northumberland, in our opinion, is quite magical in the Winter months. The huge, dark night time skies are full of stars and sometimes we get a glimpse of the Northern Lights. At night you can often hear the colony of seals on the sandbanks between us and Holy Island.
In winter we play host to many species of migratory birds which overwinter here. We enjoy the annual spectacle of thousands of pale bellied brent geese outside our windows. Very close by, Budle Bay also hosts a stunning selection of bird life.
Just a short drive away across the Causeway is Holy Island, its walks are fantastic in winter. Keen walkers can walk across from the cottage (ask us for details).
Nearby attractions include Bamburgh and Alnwick (with its Castle, Gardens and Barter Books).
You can take a day out to Newcastle (and also visit The Sage and the Baltic Art Gallery in Gateshead) or Edinburgh. Easily driveable destinations, or you can hop on a train at Berwick.
If you don't fancy going very far, just cosy up in our luxurious Mill House and enjoy relaxing as you watch the lazy tides slide in and out over the salt marshes outside our windows. Read the books provided, play a board game, watch a dvd or while away the time using our strong wifi. Best of all, the cottage is always warm and cosy, even in the midst of winter.
There's plenty of space to store your coats and boots and our separate utility room can take care of all your laundry, drying and airing needs should you get caught in the weather!
See our links page for a full list of local attractions.
