Please note when making an accommodation booking, a non-refundable deposit is required.
If a booking has to be cancelled, please notify us by 6pm on the evening prior to your visit, after this time you will charged the full amount for the first night of your booking and forfeit the deposit for any remaining nights.
Situated in the main street of the village, Marygate is some 5 miles distant from the main A1, which in turn is approximately 12 miles south of Berwick upon Tweed and 60 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The island is approached by leaving the A1 at the Lindisfarne Inn near Beale where Holy Island is well signed. The island’s unique location some 3 miles as you leave the mainland is served by the causeway, which is accessible at low tide.
As the island is tidal, it is only safe to cross at the “opening times” which are predictable, but vary from day-to-day. Access onto the island is via a tarmac roadway and is suitable for all road vehicles.
