Etched in the pages of history books - with an amazing recorded history dating from the 6th century AD - and internationally known for its geritage and religious background, Holy Island is a tidal island off the northeast coast of England.
The tidal system that surrounds the island and restricts access, gives the island even more allure, providing peace and tranquility as well as beauty.
Today, the island is now a well known Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a hotspot for tourism aswell as bird watching.
In the very heart of Holy Island with a walkway that leads up to the castle and priory is The Old Post Office.
Offered for sale with Sanderson Young from £650,000 and the first time on the market in nearly 200 years, you could own a slice of history in this truly beautiful part of the UK.
Run by previous generations of the owner's family as a Post Office, until it closed in the late 20th century. It now provides a superb three bedroom family home, with a chocolate box exterior, surrounded by roses that climb around the beautiful stone sills and lintels of the window.
It enjoys a fabulous southwest aspect overlooking the market cross and the old heritage trail to the castle.
If the Northumberland coastline didn't cross your radar before, then it certainly will have now.
