This welcoming 18th Century stone-built cottage for up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms is steeped in history and charm. As one of the oldest houses on the island, Britannia House still retains some of its original period features including beautiful oak beams and at the same time offers modern facilities to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable. The front of the house overlooks the village green which is where a tree was planted by Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to the island. The cottage welcomes one well behaved dog and has a wood burning stove, free guest Wi-Fi and a small patio area at the rear where you can enjoy a peaceful drink and plan your days out.

Our third visit to Britannia Cottage, Lindisfarne in successive years. Accommodated family of 6 with ease, situated in a prime spot. The island is a tranquil place (especially when the tide is in) with flora and fauna in abundance. Lovely walks, historic places, lobster and dressed crab served to eat in or take away at the post office, mead and Craster kippers in the store across the street. Teas and restaurants to choose from. Beach 2 minute walk from cottage. This is a superb base on a lovely island. We needed no more. Thank you.

The house was first recorded in 1792 on the oldest existing map of Holy Island. The house name originated from one of three ships that still lie as wrecks close to the Farne Island shores. It is believed a local resident recovered the ship’s name plaque and used it as the pub sign. A replica of the sign still hangs above the entrance.

This cottage accepts one well behaved dog.

Lovely stay, almost perfect but spoiled by the uncomfortable sofas in the lounge - the ones pictured are not those in-situ.

Lovely comfortable home from home, had almost everything we needed. Location is spot on, when the causeway is closed it's almost other worldly. I have already booked the same cottage for next year. The photos and description on the website require updating - the cottage has been modernised since those published.

Britannia House is a beautiful well equipped holiday property. It is warm and comfortable with plenty of room for multiple guests. The location on the square is perfect. Just over the road from the pub, hotel and mead shop, and only a five minute walk to the beach. Parking was always available even at busy times. We had a lovely holiday and would dRead moreefinitely go back. Hide

Fantastic location in the centre of village. Well equipped cottage, spacious. The dining room with bi-fold doors leading onto the small patio was lovely. Great for walks, visit to the beach. Pubs very close serving lovely food. Booking recommended.

Lovely clean well equipped house in an excellent location. For me the low seating was a problem and spoilt my evenings slightly by having to sit on a hard dinning chair and not being able to relax properly. Saying that I would still recommend this property to anyone wanting a lovely peaceful holiday.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The photos do not give it credit and was much more spacious than expected. A perfect location for a well needed holiday/retreat. We all appreciated the slow pace of life on the island. Would highly recommend. The only problem is that the holiday cottages do not give full details when booking with the timing ofRead more entering the property is dependent on the cleaners being able to get in due to the tide times.
