Katie Paterson’s national artwork ‘First There is a Mountain’ is visiting Seahouses on 4 August and you are invited to help sculpt St Aidan’s beach into thousands of mountains of sand to form micro-geologies.
Plan a longer trip to Northumberland and stay with us. Choose from two cottages on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Or you could stay nestled in the dunes behind Embleton Bay, in the charming fishermen's hamlet of Low Newton or in a former coastguard's cottage.
Do views across the harbour to Lindisfarne Castle from St Oswald's holiday cottage sound like your perfect holiday? Perhaps you'd prefer Risemoor set in the dunes near Newton Pool Nature Reserve, staying in Low Newton village square at Rockside, or even holidaying at Holy Island village with Glen House? We're sure to have a holiday cottage to suit you.
During the £3 million restoration of Lindisfarne Castle, we made a rather unexpected discovery; beautiful, intricate wall paintings that our expert conservators believe are likely to date back to the mid – late 17th century.
The exposed coastal location of Lindisfarne Castle means that the fabric of the building is under constant pressure from the elements. A major conservation and repair project was necessary to get the Castle into a good enough condition so it can be repaired in the future.
