Lindisfarne Castle is dramatically perched high above Holy Island with panoramic views of the coastline. The Castle was converted by Sir Edwin Lutyens into a private Edwardian holiday home for Edward Hudson who was the founder of Country Life Magazine.
The garden next to the castle was designed by one of the most innovative garden designers of her day, Gertrude Jekyll.
There are lots of walks around the area.
Take a boat to the Farne Islands which is one of Europe's most exciting wildlife experiences. You can see thousands of birds and Grey Seals. From May to July the islands are home to 160,000 nesting birds and in the Autumn the Grey Seal colony welcomes over 1,500 new pups.
There are long stretches of golden sands with sand dunes rich in wildlife. Beaches at Embleton Bay and Newton Links are perfect to walk, play or relax or enjoy summer paddling in the sheltered bay at Low-Newton-by-the-Sea.
The photograph of the sand and sea is at Embleton Bay.
Access to the Castle is via the causeway at low tide only so do check tide times before visiting.
