Loved the reserve excellent wildlife and walking. We were very lucky and saw a wild owl in flight and were able to enjoy watching him for a good 20 minutes.

I hadn't realised Holy Island was so big until I actually stayed overnight there and was not worried about the tides. Saw birds , seals and revelled in the peace of the place. Will return.

A good shelter from the weather, very informative about the wildlife and if you look carefully there are small fish in the pond.

Lindisfarne is a beautiful island. The nature reserve is amazing. stretching around the island it has opportunities to see a variety of wild life but it is a very windy island. Bring a good waterproof walking jacket and check the weather.

This is a beautiful place with wonderful sights of nature, both animals and landscape. It feels so peaceful and miles from the busy life on the mainland. Well worth visiting.
