Lindisfarne Castle was built in 1550 on Holy Island, around the time that Lindisfarne Priory went out of use, and stones from the priory were used as building material. It is very small by the usual standards, and was more of a fort. The castle sits on the highest point of the island, a whin stone hill called Beblowe. In 1901, it became the property of Edward Hudson, a publishing magante and the owner of Country Life magazine, and shortly afterwards was refurbished in the Arts and Crafts style by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
The castle (and the island) is the setting of the Roman Polanski film Cul-de-Sac (1966) with Donald Pleasence and Lionel Stander, shot entirely on location there.
