A view of the Mill House from the foreshore at low tide.
You won't get closer to the sea than this!  The living room overlooks the foreshore.
The large, fully equipped kitchen has fantastic sea views - concentrating on cooking's tricky!
The dining room (much larger than it looks on this photo)  has seating for 10.
This bedroom looks directly out to sea and over to Lindisfarne - wonderful!
Another wonderfully comfortable double bedroom, with stunning sea views.
The third upstairs bedroom (with ensuite) has twin beds.
The downstairs bedroom has an en suite bathroom suitable for the mobility impaired.
One of the four en suite bathrooms.  There is also a downstairs cloakroom.
The conservatory adjoins the living room and has a door to the private garden.
The conservatory with private garden and sea views.
The view of Holy Island from the large shared garden.
Enjoy the view towards Lindisfarne.
Another foreshore view of the cottages - the Mill House is on the left.

The Mill House is a very special property. It is set at the water's edge overlooking the sea towards Holy Island and Lindisfarne Castle - consequently the kitchen, living room and conservatory all enjoy stunning sea views, as do the upstairs bedrooms. Guests love getting up early to enjoy the breath-taking sunrises (you're on holiday - you can go back to bed for a lie in!). At night you can hear the seals on the sandbank midway between us and Holy Island barking to each other. We often see a fox padding along the water's edge too and all year round beautiful seabirds - waders and waterfowl alike - enjoy the shallow waters so close to our windows. In the Autumn we enjoy watching the vast migratory flocks of geese as they rest up before their long flight to eastern Europe and beyond.<BR><BR>The 18th century mi... Read more

We organized a pre-Christmas getaway for the family at the Mill House. It was perfect - 4 double rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, a large fully equipped and kitted-out kitchen, tastefully furnished dining room, family room/lounge, plus conservatory, scullery with washing machine and tumble dryer, and a downstairs toilet. TV, DVD player, books, guides, binoculars, board games, even decent...

Management response:

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Mill House at LIndisfarne Bay Cottages. A pre-Christmas getaway to the cottage must have been so peaceful and relaxing away from the busy towns and cities at this time of year. Thank you for your recommendations too.

So glad that you enjoyed your visit. You were gracious guests. Glad too that the twins enjoyed the rabbits though we would rather have fewer of them ourselves! Had you been here this week they would have seen seals close in on the high tides. We look forward to seeing you again
