Location has always been the main attraction for the owners and occupiers of Lindisfarne Castle.

From a former fort to the holiday home of a wealthy Edwardian bachelor seeking a quiet retreat from London, the idyllic location of the Castle has intrigued and inspired for centuries.

The renovation by Arts and Crafts architect Edwin Lutyens both hides and emphasises the old fort, all the while overlooking Gertrude Jekyll's enchanting walled garden and the unexpected grandeur of the Lime Kilns, an imposing and striking reminder of Lindisfarne's industrial past.

Return family visit

We visited the castle again with our granddaughter, our visit, was the first since the reopening following the restoration. The castle is looking great again and the work has clearly ensured a long term future for this historic site. The interior has yet to be fully refurnished but it is still worth a visit.

Stunning history and views.

Impressive castle/fort building and the surrounding walks are both wild and beautiful. National Trust so always good value for members. Renovation is just about complete and understand internal furnishing/display yet to be completed.

A castle climb

CraftySueMakes, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Made the walk to this castle twice during our stay. Much work has been done on conservation and preservation giving the visitors an insight into its history. Fantastic views from the upper battery and for a time we were out of the howling wind and sat in a sheltered sun trap to rest. Most enjoyable.

Really nice

If you want to visit this castle you must of have joined the national trust. The views are brilliant. It’s incredibly interesting too.

Wild and windy castle

National Trust site on Holy Island accessed by tidal road, so check tide table before you travel. It’s quite a walk from the car park to the castle and there was a cold wind blowing in the day we went. Well worth the experience to explore the rooms and get a great view of the island.
