Lindesfarne Castle, set on a mound on the tidal Holy island, truly the magic of imagination and fantasy, it bijou and beautiful and I could picture myself making it a home. From tiny hidden staircases to wide, bright corridors you really don’t know what will be around the next corner. The weather vane/ Wind indicator map painting was my personal favourite, I could look at that for many hours!

As with St Michael’s mount, there’s a sense of adventure heading on to Lindisfarne, go equipped with your timetable! It’s a little different driving over then wading impatiently across the ebbing tide in Cornwall but nevertheless the sense of a world opening up to you for just a short time is poignant.

Under the castle is a maze of lime kilns, easily missed if you don’t wander far…

There is also a Gertrude Jekyll garden but I’ll save those pictures for another day…
