The walk around the island is well worth it. Some of the beaches and views are outstanding and unspoilt. The wickerwork statues spaced around are very clever and blend in well with the surroundings.

Loved the reserve excellent wildlife and walking. We were very lucky and saw a wild owl in flight and were able to enjoy watching him for a good 20 minutes.

I hadn't realised Holy Island was so big until I actually stayed overnight there and was not worried about the tides. Saw birds , seals and revelled in the peace of the place. Will return.

A good shelter from the weather, very informative about the wildlife and if you look carefully there are small fish in the pond.

Our primary visit to the Holy Island was to walk around it and we certainly enjoyed a bracing, fresh walk around the nature reserve. Covering around 4-5 miles, we saw a variety of wildlife, just not as much as we had hoped. The saving grace...More

Lindisfarne is a beautiful island. The nature reserve is amazing. stretching around the island it has opportunities to see a variety of wild life but it is a very windy island. Bring a good waterproof walking jacket and check the weather.
