Businesses sold


A rare opportunity to acquire a hotel in Lindisfarne – also known as Holy Island, is available with specialist property adviser Christie + Co.

Lying just a few miles off the Northumberland coast, Lindisfarne is regarded by many as the cradle of Christianity in mainland Britain and has been a place of pilgrimage for more than 1,300 years.

Accessed from the mainland by way of a causeway, Holy Island has a solid and booming tourist trade all year round, attracting both religious tourists and those who simply wish to explore the wild coastal beauty of the Island.

Manor House Hotel is situated at the heart of the Island adjacent to the Priory and boasts magnificent views of the harbour and the 16th century Lindisfarne castle.

The property, once the summer home of the lord of several local manors, comprises ten elegant en-suite rooms, a popular restaurant serving classic British cuisine, bar and a beer garden. 

Mark Worley, Director at Christie + Co’s Newcastle office, comments: “Manor House represents an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a prime located hotel in a highly desirable tourist destination. With profits approaching the £100,000 mark, the hotel is an excellent performing business which requires little expenditure.”

Apart from its historical pedigree, Holy Island has an exciting and varied array of wildlife, stunning coastal scenery and fantastic walks. The Island is also home to a charming village with a number of shops, cafes and pubs.

Christie + Co is seeking offers in excess of £795,000 for the freehold interest in Manor House Hotel.
