Facts about Lowick near holy island for Cottage Holidays
Holy Island is a really special place and is just 9 miles from Lowick. Accessed via tidal causeway, check for safe crossing times and plan your outward and return journey with care. On arrival at Lindisfarne, enjoy walking by the sea and discovering the remains of Lindisfarne Priory. Lindisfarne Castle has an impressive presence, standing tall over the village. This castle was originally a garrison, then a holiday home and is now under the protection of the National Trust.
Further down the coast, another place to visit on a cottage holiday, around 13 miles from Lowick, is Bamburgh with its much photographed castle, gloriously located right by the beautiful sandy beach. A further 3 miles from here is the village of Seahouses. Many people head to Seahouses for the boat trips available here that take holidaymakers out to see seals or birds. Aside from this, there is little to recommend Seahouses itself as it is not a particularly picturesque place.
Craster on the other hand is a different matter. This picturesque little fishing village is located 24 miles from Lowick and is well worth a visit. If you wish you can visit the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle from here, via a coastal walk. This Castle is managed by English Heritage and accessed after a long walk. Please note that you need to be physically fit for this walk and those with mobility issues may prefer to admire the castle from a distance. Families with children should also note that there are no toilet facilities at Dunstanburgh Castle so again for the sake of convenience, the castle may be best viewed at a distance.
