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.

Steeped in history and charm, this period cottage retains many of its original features, including its beautiful oak beams, while also offering modern additions that combine together for a relaxing, enjoyable stay. The house overlooks the village green, where a tree was planted by Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to the island IN 1958. Shops and the village pub are all within walking distance, also. You’ll find the village of Bamburgh nearby, as well as plenty of stunning beaches and castles on the mainland. The property is also within easy reach of the award-winning Dark Skies Park.

Enter the cottage and step into the inviting lounge, which offers a real, cosy home-from-home feel. Relax on the sofa in front of the log burning stove, perhaps while watching the TV or a DVD, or curled up with a good book. If you choose to dine at the property, you’ll find everything you need in the kitchen; an electric oven and hob, separate fridge and freezer, washing machine, and dishwasher. The dining room is spacious, with ample room for the whole family to dine together. Upstairs you’ll find the cottage’s three bedrooms; the master is spacious with a king-size bed. There’s also a bunk bedroom and a twin bedroom, which has VELUX-style windows. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and a WC, while the shower room features a walk-in shower and WC.

Heading outside, you’ll find a small patio area to the rear of the property the perfect spot for a peaceful drink, or perhaps for planning your next day out.

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.
