The Ship Inn is situated in the area of Holy Island known as Marygate. It offers guest accommodation, home cooked food and variety of drinks - including real ales. The inn has a warm and inviting atmosphere and has been a public house on this site for several hundred years.
The guest rooms at the inn are all en suite and include:
Radio & alarm.
LCD digital flat screen TV.
Free Wi-Fi access.
Breakfast is available in our restaurant and in the evening we offer an a lá carte menu. This can be enjoyed in the main bar area or on warm summer evenings, in the peaceful surroundings of our lovely beer garden.
For those who want that little extra, we have our lounge area where reserved tables are offered for our guests staying at The Ship Inn. An equally warm welcome is offered to those who are just visiting for the evening and wish to enjoy the ambience the lounge area has to offer. Here you can relax and enjoy the meal & drink of your choice; whether it’s local ale or one of our fine wines from our extensive wine list. You can sit back without leaving your seat as we offer a full waiter service to ensure you savour The Ship Inn’s unique charm.
Situated in the main street of the village, Marygate is some 5 miles from the main A1, which is approximately 12 miles south of Berwick upon Tweed and 60 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Holy Island is approached by leaving the A1 at the Lindisfarne Inn near Beale where Holy Island is well signed. The island’s unique location is served by the causeway road which is approximately 3 miles as you leave the mainland accessible at low tide. As the island is tidal, it is only safe to cross at the “opening times” which are predictable, but vary from day-to-day. Access onto the island is via a tarmac roadway and is suitable for all road vehicles. Please consult the tide timetables to check the causeway’s accessibility from low to high tides thereby ensuring a safe crossing time.
For those relying upon public transport there is a very limited bus route to the island; however a good taxi service is available from Berwick upon Tweed centre or railway station. The Ship Inn can provide useful telephone numbers of taxi companies if required. When available (via The Ship Inn) a personalised car collection service can be booked if needed.
