Personal and writing retreats on Holy Island (Lindisfarne)

Holy Island Writer's retreat

We’ve now launched special rates for winter stays of 7+ nights

Winter is a perfect time to stay on the island for a writing or personal retreat, as visitor numbers are low, and the primal wildness of the crashing North Sea waves is inspirational.

Rates: Only £525 for 7 nights (reduced from £903) and only £75/night for additional nights. This rate applies in either one of our en suite studios (with kitchenette), and can be booked for one person or a couple.

Dates for these rates: 1 Nov – 20 Dec 2020 and 4 Jan – 28 Feb 2021

Our Covid promise: if you are not allowed to travel because of a national lockdown or due to your/our area going into Tier 3 restrictions (or equivalent in Scotland/Wales) – we will be happy to refund you without delay or hassle (that’s also what we’ve done in the first lockdown, because we think it’s the right thing to do)

These rates will be applied automatically when you book a stay of 7 days or more from our website. All rates subject to availability. You can combine this offer with dates outside of the offer period, which will automatically be charged at our usual rates.

This offer is available to anyone (not just writers), who books 7 nights or more in the dates below, either as an individual or couple.

Holy Island is a perfect destination for a personal or writing retreat, whatever your reasons

We’ve had award winning authors and first-draft writers taking a week or two away on Holy Island, to focus on their work, recharge and get their writing done, without distractions.

We’ve also had people taking time away from their busy life to reflect, recharge and get some ‘me time’, either by themselves or as a couple.

They shared with us the peace they experienced, taking long walks along the deserted beaches when the tide is in, watching the birds and seals and enjoying the fresh air and the island’s sky that seems to go on forever. Then they would come back to the warmth of their studio at Belvue Guesthouse with their creative juices flowing.

Our studios have kitchenettes, which allow you to eat in. The cafes and pubs on the island are used to solo travellers, and so no one bats an eyelid if you have a meal by yourself.
