Holy Island is a nature reserve of international importance and has a rich history with its eighth century celtic Christian priory. It has a vibrant village with visitor facilities.
The house is a traditional eighteenth century fisherman's cottage with a large modern extension at the back, all finished off to a high standard. There are fantastic views from the living room and all bedrooms. There is an upstairs balcony with the best views ever and a large sheltered mature garden.

The space
Because of the pandemic we are changing our meet and great procedure. Normally I would call shortly after your arrival and demonstrate the systems in the house. I will still call to introduce myself but will not enter the house unless you have a problem and invite me in. There is a house booklet with instructions and I will tweak some systems to make them easier and add more detailed instructions.
You can still have a great, safe holiday!

The front of the house is the old fisherman's cottage with traditional features such as exposed beams and feature fireplaces. Please don't attempt to light the fires - the chimneys are blocked.

The back of the house is a large modern 2 story extension with large glass windows/doors to take full advantage of the view over to the harbour and castle and over the sea to the Farne Islands.

The kitchen/diner is spacious and well equipped. The living room has a glass wall to take advantage of the views and sun. There are steps from the living room to the mature garden which is large, sheltered and secluded. The main bathroom is off the passage between the kitchen and living room. It has a walk in shower. Also downstairs is a single bedroom with views to the harbour.

Upstairs the balcony bedroom has a balcony with even better views than the living room. It has a double bed with a comfortable yet firm futon type mattress. The balcony is a great place to sit out with panoramic views.
The loft bedroom upstairs has an ensuite bathroom with bath and over the bath shower. It has oak beams and stripped floorboards and a comfortable, soft double bed. The two windows look over farmland to the north shore.
Heating is via an air source heat pump so there is no need for a carbon monoxide sensor. To add to the houses eco credentials there are above average levels of insulation and triple glazed picture windows.

There is parking for one car at the front door and extra on road parking at the gable end. Please park with consideration for the neighbours as there is just enough room for all 4 cottages in the square.
