What Holy Island offers for Cottage Breaks

Holy Island is reached by car via a tidal causeway or alternatively by boat.  Take note that the causeway can only be used at certain times of day, dependent on the tides.  It is essential when visiting or staying on the island to do your research and familiarise yourself with the tidal timetable information.  Holy Island is a peaceful place which promises some stunning seaside scenery and excellent coastal walks.  There are a couple of pubs and a few restaurants in the village.  The much photographed Lindisfarne Castle stands tall, dominating the island.  Other sights not to be missed include the ruin of the abbey and the beach.  Enjoy browsing for self-catering and coastal cottages in Holy Island.
