The beach on Lindisfarne

The beach on Lindisfarne

The beautiful beach on Lindisfarne – we were the only people there. Perfection!

The beginning of this week saw us head to Lindisfarne for a few days away with my family.

I completely fell in love with it. I loved its solitude – the tidal causeway making it inaccessible from the mainland for parts of the day. I loved its wilderness. And I loved just being away. I’ve said before that sometimes just getting a change of scenery gives me a huge happy boost, and it was certainly well needed.

During our stay we managed to find a beautiful secluded beach, where the only footprints were left by members of my family. We flew a kite, something I haven’t done for almost 20 years. I tried Lindisfarne Mead, which was totally new to me, and also took part in a family whiskey tasting one evening.

It was a beautiful place, and I had such an amazing few days. If you’re looking for total peace and quiet and some quality relaxing time, I’d definitely recommend it.

The best thing for me though was having more than just a couple of hours to devote to family time. It was such a luxury to not have to dash away here, or quickly just pop there – I loved being able to just be with the people I love. Definitely something to bear in mind for the future I think…

Where are your favourite escapes? And how do you spend your family time? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
