While the island of Lindisfarne is home to just 180 people, it welcomes some 650,000 visitors each year, despite being cut off by the sea twice a day.

The 1st Class Food café and Post Office has been listed for sale due to retirement, presenting a unique opportunity for an island escape that doesn’t come around every day.

With its idyllic location and generous turnover of around £450,000 per year, the business boasts 50 internal covers and a 100 cover patio area.
