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.

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.

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, to the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, a stay in one of our cottages will give you the chance to explore the rugged landscape and green hills of Yorkshire and the North East. As if that wasnâ€™t enough, there are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, (much of which we look after) 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. 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.
