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.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
sitting room with wood-burning stove, hall way, kitchen/dining area.

Please note: Lindisfarne Castle is closed to the public until Spring 2018 while it undergoes conservation refurbishment.

The Shop, Garden, Castle field, Lime Kilns and headland will remain open during this time.

Yorkshire and the North East

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 wasn’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. As if that wasn't enough, there are also historic towns and cities

    Nice break away

    We enjoy the quiet and seclusion with lots of fresh air and walking / hiking. A nice break away from the everyday pressures.
