Situated on Marygate in Holy Island village, our shop has a wide range of produce to suit all ages and tastes. We have a large selection of local books and outdoor gear to home accessories and kitchen wares, including designs exlcusive to the National Trust by artists Alex Clark and Fiona Howard.


Back after a very successful first year, our back yard is open once again for garden and plant sales including surplus flowers and vegetables from the Gertrude Jekyll Garden.

The shop stocks a range of unique Wind Indicator products

On display Lindisfarne Castle's Entrance Hall, Macdonald Gill's impressive Wind Indicator has been wowing visitors for decades. The painted panel, which was installed in 1913, shows a map of Holy Island and the Northumberland coast complete with a line of fortress and the fleeing Spanish Armada surrounding the circular wind dial.
 

Inspired by this design, we have created a unique range of products exclusive to our shop. Gill's vibrant colours and playful compostition make for attractive and memorable gifts.

Located in the back yard of our shop, our garden offers a variety of hardy perennials and self-seeding annuals. Coupled with our plants, why not enhance your garden with one of our many garden accessories?
 

In the summer, we are sometimes fortunate enough to have a stock of surplus flowers and vegetables from the Gertrude Jekyll Garden just up the road at Lindisfarne Castle.

Remember...

Every penny you spend in our shop goes towards our crucial conservation work at Lindisfarne Castle. So the next time you buy a postcard your 50p will be contributing to replacing the Castle's leaking windows, getting a clock repaired, or restoring our distinctive brick floors.
