About Glen House

Half a mile away from Lindisfarne Castle, this simple little hideaway is perfect for seal watching.

Escape to a tidal island steeped in 16th-century history and stay in this mid-terraced cottage. Your pilgrimage to Holy Island will see you crossing the Northumberland coast by a narrow causeway that gradually gets washed away by the North Sea. 

One-bedroom Glen House is perfectly situated the island’s main street, just half a mile away from the striking, Lindisfarne Castle. It’s part of our basic collection – perfect for those after simple, hassle-free accommodation, so they can spend more time exploring the surrounding area. 

From here you’ll be within walking distance to the harbour, the crag-top castle and the coast. Holy Island is also renowned for its abundance of wildlife with rare seabirds and seals gracing the coastline.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
