Welcome to Our Online Store - it saves on fuel!


Just to let you all know, Holy Island has been dug out of the snow and is now most definitely open to visitors!  Yes, we were closed off for around 3 days earlier in March with the  heavy drifting snow, great fun for the people booked to stay on the Island overnight... 

The archaeological dig turned up what is possibly St. Aidan's church on the Heugh. It will have to be covered over, but can be re-visited in later years. 

Shop news...

At last I have decided to retire (ish).  Our daughter Charlotte is now running both shops and our holiday let - Sally's Cottage. I shall be in on the weekends so she can have a couple of days  off. 

A small request, as our online shop is still evolving, could we ask for suggestions as to what we should include.  All the shop stock will be impossible, but we are open to to further ideas - except rings - they are difficult even when the 'finger is to hand' so guessing is pretty impossible and I do like to fit a ring properly. 

Charlotte in the Fudge Kitchen is making and selling loads of fudge still...  this year she is fund raising for the RNLI... they are very frequent visitors to the Island - due to the popularity of driving into the high tide by a few people...                                  The fudge shop has had a major facelift this year and looks amazing, also Charlotte and Farah are making their own Lindisfarne Gelato - in 4 tasty flavours. Cleverly Charlotte has now added seats so that you can eat your ice cream inside on cool, windy days, or drink your coffee, or eat your fudge...


Andrew in Pilgrims Coffee House has also improved his offering:-  an alcohol  licence means liqueurs in coffee, and beer, wine and cider for the summer, Also, he has purchased a very large coffee roaster as the demand for his own coffee proved difficult to keep up with.  So now he can supply himself, many of the Island eateries, The Alnmouth Grocer and many other cafes in the area -with ease. His latest job was to fit out a new cafe in Newcastle -  'Camber Coffee'.
