A substantial cottage on Holy Island with spectacular views of the harbour and Lindisfarne Castle, St Oswald's was designed by the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in the early 20th century and has a number of features typical of the man, such as the pan-tiled roof, the windows and doors, and the wonderfully simple folding window brackets. This spacious cottage has gardens to the front and rear.
Nestled in the dunes between Low Newton and Dustanburgh Castle it is one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in the country. The house itself is adjacent to the Newton Pool Nature Reserve so this is a perfect place for keen bird watchers and nature lovers; otters can occasionally be spotted here.
The house is a former pub and the furnishings are seaside-inspired; light and airy inside with cream walls, reclaimed and painted furniture, red, white and blue striped fabrics, pebble lamps, beach hut prints, birds, bunting. You can even ring the old ship bell at dinner time.
