Award-winning B&B in Seahouses, Northumberland

Gold-medal winner at the VisitEngland National Awards 2014!
'England's Best B&B 2014'

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

  • St Cuthbert's House went instantly to the top of my 'best-ever B&B's' list. I would describe it as a luxury small hotel with a family feel, but that might not fit on the signs!

    Clare Balding, in her book 'Walking Home'

  • There may be other B&Bs with equally comfortable rooms, there may be other B&Bs with good breakfasts, there may be other B&Bs with interesting architecture - but there are unlikely to be many other B&Bs where the personal service and attention to detail is so expertly and warmly and sincerely given.  And that is what makes the difference here, that total dedication to quality, which is really about dealing with people in the best possible way.
    Richard & Margaret June 2 2015

  • Fantastic place.  The best hospitality we have ever experienced.  Already planning our next visit to Northumberland.

    Sophie & Damian

    Graham & Claire

  • Everything was superb; the room, the breakfast, and even the wifi!
    Peter & Madeline

  • Once again, superb... I find it difficult to find words enough to praise this place, and its hosts.

    Jane & Colin

  • The attention to detail and overall care is second to none
    Rob & Steph

  • We are amazed... at the thought, and attention to detail, that has gone into making us feel at home
    Ronan & Caroline

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 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 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.  And we've been awarded the mantle of 'England's Best B&B' by VisitEngland, at their 2014 Awards for Excellence ceremony.

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 RoomIn 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!

BedroomWhether 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.

  • VisitEngland Awards 2015 - Silver in 'Sustainable Tourism'

    VisitEngland Awards 2015 - Silver in 'Sustainable Tourism'

    This year, we entered the national VisitEngland Awards in the Sustainable Tourism category - in fear and trembling!  This category attracts the very best and most environmentally-aware businesses from across the whole country, and so we knew we were mixing it with the big boys. To be shortlisted nationally was wonderful, but to win the SILVER award was beyond our wildest dreams!  We're thrilled.

    The judges wrote afterwards, and said: "You were up against some really stiff opposition, so you should be very proud of what you have achieved. It's fully deserved... so impressed by the way the business (and the building) has integrated itself within the community, has become such an asset to it, and provides guests with such a positive experience of it. Well done!

    So that is indeed a wonderful affirmation of our attempts to make our community a better place to live and work, as well as to visit.

    St Cuthbert's House wins 'Best B&B in England 2014'!

    We were absolutely delighted to win the GOLD award in the Guest Accommodation category, at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2014, at a swanky do in Cheltenham! The annual Gold Award is the highest accolade which VisitEngland can bestow, and means that we're their 'Best B&B' for 2014. Wonderful... Three-quarters of our family joined us at the Awards bash (we miss you Joe!) and I think we scrub up pretty well, don't you?
