This welcoming 18th Century stone-built cottage is one of the oldest houses on the island. Its central village location means it’s well placed for exploring Holy Island.

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.

Bed linen, towels, heating and hot water are included.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Have stayed in Britannia House for a number of years. Central to village and church with on street parking adjacent to the property. Next year...can you recommend single story let having 3 bedrooms and adjustable shower rather than fixed. Preferably somewhere central on Holy Island.

Great cottage in a nice, central location. Would return to this property again! Owners very friendly and allowed us to check in 5 hours early too

Reviewed by Joy 16th March 2019

Centrally situated, close to all the shops and local cafes and pubs, but it still felt private and peaceful and very much our own for the week. Wildlife in abundance all just a short walk away from our door and of course the ebbing and flowing sea which was an endless source of fascination, as we watched the tides come and go across the causeway.

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
