This is a beautiful homely guest house with superb attention to detail. Lovely homemade jams and marmalades with breakfast, as well as local Lindisfarne Mead you can help yourself to. Great location for exploring Holy island and surrounding area. The level of accommodation and service felt more like a Boutique Hotel! One of the best Guest Houses/B&Bs i've ever stayed...

Tasty breakfasts each morning with a very good selection of homemade options (great black pudding too!). Really enjoyable stay...
