Holy Island, Northumberland, England
Sleeps 4

Built in the 1660's; Sally's Cottage, is upside down, apartment style living in one of the oldest buildings on Holy Island. In the centre of the village, but tucked behind the Front street; Sally's is convenient for all the Island amenities, but private at the same time.

Sally's Cottage is perfect for couples, we are lucky to welcome many honeymooners, but we also have our families of 'explorer children' coming for the lovely beaches surrounding our Island. The large, private garden is perfect for relaxing in, especially as we have added a lovely summerhouse.

Interaction with guests
We are usually here to welcome you to Sally's when you arrive, but an late arrivals will find it easy to get in and put your feet up.
There is always someone on hand if you need help, we are in Celtic Crafts and the lovely staff at Pilgrims coffee House are super helpful as well.
We aim to let you enjoy your holiday without poking our noses in, but love to chat if you are not rushing off to Cragside, Farne Islands or just down the beach on the Island.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Sally's cottage during a weekend break. The cottage was adorable, spacious and very clean. Karen was a lovely, informative host who had great suggestions of how to make the most of our time on Holy Island.

Management response:

Thank you, I'm glad you liked Sally's and enjoyed Holy Island. I look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon. Karen

Fabulous stay here - lovely touches with flowers, scones, wine, fudge and milk left for our arrival - thank you! This is a great base from which to explore the island, its history and amazing beaches/wildlife. Lovely place to unwind, especially when the tide is in and the day trippers have gone home! Recommend bringing your own food, or you...

Management response:

Thank you so much Doris and George... I'm delighted you had a fabulous stay on the Island and in Sally's and glad the sunsets were up to expectations.
