Holy Island Crossing Times

When on holiday in Northumberland, a trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, should be high on your list of places to visit. This remote island and village is cut off by the North Sea twice a day.

Holy Island, close to Bamburgh and Berwick upon Tweed is a fantastic day out as it oozes history. Wander around Lindisfarne Priory, head up towards Lindisfarne Castle, catch a glimpse of seals playing in the sea, walk around the island and visit the independent shops, cafes and pubs and try a taste of Lindisfarne Mead.

For those who want to spend longer than a day on Holy Island, we have an incredible property located on the island. St. Coomb’s Farmhouse is a stone built farmhouse accommodating up to six guests with fantastic views over fields towards Lindisfarne Castle and the sea.

As Holy Island is cut off from the rest of the world twice a day, it can only be reached from the mainland twice a day via a causeway, so please check the safe crossing times before entering or leaving the island.
