Great place to go out of season. Had the beaches to ourselves and the dogs could run free. Dog friendly pub - the Crown and Anchor.

The island is attached by causeway to the mainland. When the tide is in, the causeway is closed and the island is peaceful. When the causeway is open, parts of the island become a mad house. Accept that it is busy when the causeway is open, try and walk to the quieter spots and enjoy the solitude when the causeway... More

cycled over on a chilly windy day - the ride over was great, but hard work coming back across. Had a great little mooch around and visited the castle (National Trust) The views are stunning and we had a very pleasant visit. It's worth walking out to the beach beyond the castle - the stone stacking is impressive

Visited during very wild and windy weather, the causeway was still covered with an inch or two of seawater well after the safe crossing time started, due to the wind blowing the sea up into the Snook. On the island it was pretty much deserted and everything was closed. We got a coffee and scone at the Post Office which... More

Our latest visit was January 8th/9th 2015,bright cold and windy but still relaxing especially once the day visitors had headed back to the mainland and we settled down in the... More

Serene and quiet location that evokes spirituality and history. Cut off from the mainland by more than just a causeway.

From the Castle standing proud on the south edge of the island, to the marvellous priory ruins, Lindisfarne has to be a place to go and experience. Even the excitement of going across the causeway, only accessible at low tide, gives me shivers. Away from the picturesque village, there are expanses of unspoilt sand dunes to explore - and the...
