Come and experience the beautiful Northumberland Coast from this unique and stunning renovation; luxury B&B in a 200-year-old former chapel in Seahouses

This time away in Northumberland is precious for you, and we're sure you don't want to risk choosing the wrong place to stay. You very probably don't want simply 'a place to stay' at all - you want to feel a genuine, warm welcome, and to feel completely comfortable, relaxed and 'at home'. And you want an experience you can tell your closest friends and family about, in the genuine hope they can share it too. These are the feelings you'll experience when you stay at St Cuthbert's House. Come and see...

You're looking for peaceful and unique Bed & Breakfast in Northumberland, and you'll find that St Cuthbert's House is a special place to stay - one of the very best. We don't describe ourselves as 'boutique' B&B - but several of our guests have.

This lovely, historic building has been tastefully renovated to provide you with beautiful, luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation, brimming with high-quality facilities. We've taken care of every detail in your room - including the sumptuous pocket-sprung bed set with lovely crisp egyptian cotton sheets, gorgeous duvets and king-sized pillows. After taking in some fresh, clear Northumberland air, you'll sleep deeper and softer than ever before.

The Cuthbert Room, St Cuthbert's HouseIn the morning, you can enjoy award-winning local sausage and bacon from our butcher, free-range eggs from a nearby farm, or dishes made with traditional oak-smoked fish from the Seahouses smokehouse - birthplace of the original kipper. Or choose from a range of other delicious options on the lavish breakfast menu. Lovely food, beautifully presented for you to enjoy in the peaceful, inspiring setting of this gorgeous house.

B&B doesn't get any better than this - award-winning luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Seahouses, near Bamburgh, on the beautiful Northumberland coast. You'll be able to stroll along the beach to Bamburgh Castle, or take a short drive to Lindisfarne - Holy Island - or to visit Alnwick Castle and Garden. You're just a few minutes walk from the bustling Seahouses harbour, where boats leave for the Farne Islands, and from the village centre shops and pubs - but your resting place is just far enough away from the hustle to be quiet, and peaceful.

Perhaps the greatest luxury we can offer you is to know that everything we do here is geared towards making your time at St Cuthbert's House - away from the daily routine - just exactly as you want it. Why not take a look at Our Awards and Guest Reviews to see what others have said.

We have a private, off-street car park at St Cuthbert's House - and with so much to see and explore locally, you might leave yours there for days on end!

Sumptuous comfort at St Cuthbert's HouseWhether you're planning to spend time walking or laid-back, touring or staying put, whatever you decide to do you'll be perfectly located - with easy access to Northumberland's amazing coast and country, its expansive, pristine beaches, big skies and wide, open horizons...

Come see us, and refill your soul.
