Christmas Charm In The Winter Wonderland of Holy Island Northumberland

This is now our 6th Winter on Holy Island and until the winter of December 2009 to February 2010 there has been no snow of significance to speak of. The 3 months starting just a year ago certainly made up the lack of snow fall which came with a vengeance, islanders saying they hadn't seen anything like it for nearly 50 years. Well if records are to be broken this is the year for it with snow returning with record falls starting this Winter as early as 24 November and as we go to press snow is still falling almost 1 month on!

The Ship Inn has opened as usual on the key winter days and for those who will venture out good home made food awaits with our usual selection of ales, wines and spirits. where you can relax by our lovely open fire. And if you want to totally relax why not book a few days as a few rooms are still left to enjoy the true tranquility of the island, as many of you already know, the island is at its' best on these lovely Winter days.

If you are out to stretch those legs over the festive break The Ship Inn will be serving lunches and evening meals as usual from Boxing Day, for our special New Year's eve night a few limited table places now remain.
