Dramatically perched on a rocky crag and accessible via a three-mile causeway at low tide only, Lindisfarne castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect. Originally a Tudor fort, it was converted into a private house in 1903 by the young Edwin Lutyens. The small rooms are full of intimate decoration and design, with windows looking down upon the charming walled garden planned by Gertrude Jekyll. I took this image from the garden looking towards the castle.I made use of an early start before the crowds of visitors arrived.
