Glen House is a comfortable well-appointed mid-terrace cottage on the Island's main street on route to Lindisfarne Castle. The harbour area is 400 yards from the cottage and the Castle is half a mile away. It provides an ideal base to explore this tranquil area and the countryside around. A birdwatcher's paradise.
This cottage is part of our Basic Collection – cottages that are both distinctive and value for money. This category was created as you told us that you would sometimes like something that gets you back to nature and a simpler way of enjoying your holiday. The cottages don’t have all the fixtures and fittings that you might expect from our other cottages, but still provide for your comfort and enjoyment.
Heating: Oil Central Heating included.
Garden: Small lawned area to the rear of the cottage.
Parking: On street parking outside cottage, but no designated parking area (Parking can be limited within the Village).
Bed: King Size; Twin on request.
Tides: Please check safe tidal crossing times for access to Lindisfarne.
Please note: Lindisfarne Castle is closed to the public until Spring 2018 while it undergoes conservation refurbishment. Due to the exposure to the elements, this has led to the deterioration to the fabric of the building. This is the first project of its kind in over 100 years. The Shop, Garden, Castle field, Lime Kilns and headland will remain open during this time.
From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, the magnificent coastline (much of which we care for) and Northumberland National Park to the north a holiday with us will give you the chance to explore some or all of this fascinating area. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, there are also historic towns and cities and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.
Long ago, Northumbria was a land at the very edge of a great empire. And even today, the wind sweeping across the hills still seems to carry the distant sounds of Roman legions marching along Hadrian's Wall. From the wild and natural beauty of the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park in the north, magnificent castles and coastline to the east and Hadrian's Wall Country to the west, the scenery is as unspoilt as it was in those far-off times: it will certainly appeal to those wanting to discover high and lonely places and untouched beaches. The National Trust owns a range of historic buildings in the area including Lindisfarne Castle, Wallington, Cragside and the shore- based Souter lighthouse.
