Postcard from Lindisfarne Castle

This has to be my favourite place and view. The climb into the 16th century romantic castle up the slippery cobbles was a little nerve racking with a toddler mainly due to the seeming lack of fencing his height ( bit of a surprise for a national trust property!) . We all loved it inside. All Lutyens designed interior so panelling and heavy furniture but none the less cosy. Just wished the man playing the Northumbrian bagpipes had been a little quieter as such a peaceful place otherwise! The views of course were stunning and you could just about see the colony of seals in the distance in the reserve. We will be back!

  1. Oh wow, I can just imagine the atmosphere and views! I’m surprised Lutyens had a hand in it, he got about a bit didn’t he? Your flower photo is exquisite by the way 🙂
