'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'

  • We loved the superb mattress, the super-king size bed, and the blackout curtains!
    Tim & Sarah, May 1 2016

  • You strike a perfect balance at St Cuthbert`s House by incorporating the comfort and style of a first class hotel into the cosy informality of a five star bed and breakfast.  It was like staying with friends...
    Roger & Ingrid, April 27 2016

  • We've run out of superlatives...
    Richard & Alicia, April 25 2016

  • Thanks for another wonderful break here.  This is the perfect haven - peaceful, relaxing, friendly... we'll be back!
    Mary & Jim April 30 2016

  • Wow, Jill & Jeff... the warmest of welcomes, every little thing carefully considered, and that fine line betweeen helpfulness and allowing own space trodden to perfection!  Just how many friends do we tell?  I think we tell all of them - and we certainly will be back.
    Marian & Chris, April 2 2016

  • St. Cuthberts House is, without doubt, one of the best Bed & Breakfast experiences that you are ever likely to experience. The place is, quite frankly, faultless.
    Ron & Nicole, April 7 2016

  • Where to celebrate a big birthday - Venice or St Cuthbert's?  St Cuthbert's wins, every time!  Thanks for making it another great break - see you again in August.
    Kevin & Bett, April 3 2016

  • The St Cuthbert's Way is not only a Northumbrian footpath, it is 'The Way' to run the perfect B&B - as practised by your hosts, Jeff & Jill.  With world-class communication before, during and after your stay, and an unrivalled attention to detail from the minute you arrive, this is the way to keep guests wanting more of the same.
    Steve & Elaine, March 29 2016

  • Celebrating our 41st anniversary required somewhere very special.  You did not disappoint. The standard of accommodation and food, and your careful and thoughtful attention to detail...
    Marilyn & Jim, Feb 23 2016

  • Simply top class.
    Johhny & Julie, Oct 24 2015

  • Thank you for the most perfect stay imaginable.  You really have thought of everything.
    Linda & Mike, Oct 17 2015

  • Our stay fulfilled my expectations in every way - and the fact that they were very high says it all.  We will most definitely recommend you to friends and family.
    Sandie & Jamie, March 25 2016

  • We've had a fabulous few days, everything has more than met our expectations - which is rare indeed. So welcoming, so friendly, so 'home from home'... We're here again next year, and we promise to bring our own rucksack!  Thanks for the use of yours.
    Bett & Kevin, August 30 2015

  • Our time... has been a delight from beginning to end.  You've been brilliant - from the comfort of the accommodation, through booking dinner, to suggestions of what to do and where to visit.
    We truly haven't stayed in a better B&B. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.
    Linda & Steve, Sept 19 2015 (Silver Travel Advisor reviewers)

  • Another wonderful holiday spent in this lovely, welcoming house.  Thank you for all your care towards us. Looking forward to seeing you again next year!
    Keith & Anne, July 13 2015

  • Thank you both for six wonderful days...and brilliant advice on how we, as 'Northumberland novices' might spend our days - advice we followed without regret.  A memorable holiday
    Tim & Sarah, July 27 2015

  • You two go the extra mile in everything, and your warm welcome and ready advice have enhanced our stay. The B&B to beat...
    Richard & Valerie, August 9 2015

  • Your attention to every detail made our experience so wonderful
    Steven & Angela, July 9 2015

  • St. Cuthbert's House is a difficult place to leave.  We couldn't have wished for better.
    Ian & Judy, June 30 2015

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 be restored.

  • Double winners at the National Awards 2016!

    Double winners at the National Awards 2016!

    We were absolutely thrilled to be awarded top honours amongst the winners at the national VisitEngland Awards 2016, at their swanky 'do' in Blackpool a short while ago.  

    Not only did we win honours in the B&B category, but we were also at top table in the Sustainable Tourism category too! This was a great honour, and it's not something we take lightly - it's really great to be judged as being amongst the very best in the whole country in both of these categories - but the main reason we enter these awards is to reassure you, our guest, that we've been assessed, objectively measured, and judged as amongst the very best.  You're not 'taking a chance' with your precious time away...  Come and see.

    Sat June 11 - Jack Harris in concert

    Jack Harris was a South by South-West showcasing artist at 17. He was also the youngest, as well as the only non-American person ever to win the New Folk song writing award at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas. Previous winners included Gillian Welch, Steve Earle and Devon Sproule.

    Jack writes literate, compassionate songs, about subjects as disparate as Caribbean drinking festivals, the colour of a potato flower and the lives of great poets like Elizabeth Bishop.

    These have won him considerable acclaim. The Telegraph voted his album ‘The Flame and the Pelican’ #5 in their top 10 Roots/Folk albums of 2012. Q magazine praised his ‘unique lyrical mind’, and Maverick UK awarded the record its full 10/10 rating.

  • Quite a haul in 2015!

    We've been enjoying reading Clare Balding's new book this week. She stayed with us a while ago, but we were really taken aback to find that she mentions her stay at St Cuthbert's House in the book! Here's what she says, on page 201:
    'St Cuthbert's House went instantly to the top of my 'best ever B&Bs' list. I would describe it as a luxury small hotel with a family feel, but that might not fit on the signs.' Aw, thanks Clare!
