So, when faced with so many choices, how can you be sure you're not 'taking a chance' when you come to stay at St Cuthbert's House?  Well...

  • We won VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England' mantle in 2014, and have also won Silver and Bronze Awards at their ceremonies in 2015 & 2016!
  • We have a 5-Star Gold rating from VisitEngland - the highest they award.
  • We've won at the North-East Tourism Awards every year between 2009-2015, and at the most recent ceremony we won TWO Gold Awards.
  • We're No 1 on Tripadvisor in our area, and 99% of reviewers say they would recommend us - and we've been awarded Tripadvisor's coveted 'Certificate of Excellence' for several consecutive years and are now in their Hall of Fame.
  • We've been listed in the Sunday Times' 'Ultimate Hotel Guide' and also in the Independent '50 Best B&B's'.
  • We have retained our Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme every year since 2008, because we champion our local producers and suppliers.
  • We know that several guests (eleven, and counting) have BOUGHT the same bed they slept in here, because it was so comfortable!
  • We're in the Good Hotel Guide (where you can't buy an entry)

So you can see that not only do WE love what we do, but so do our guests too.

Here are our room rates, which of course include your sumptuous breakfast. Please note that these preferential rates assume a stay of at least two nights, and that you're booking directly with us (via any of the Book Online Now links on our own website, or by phone). Please be aware that you could well pay more if booking via certain 'agency' sites, because they charge hefty commissions. It's always best to book direct with us (and with any other small independent place you're staying - spread the word!)

During the summer season we are usually only able to make a booking for two or more nights, unless you are arriving on foot or by bicycle. But we do occasionally have a one-night space, and we're pleased to fill them - so if you need just one night, do please give us a call to check availability, because single-night availability may not be shown online.

Please note that Easter and Spring Bank Holiday weekends are priced in line with the peak Summer period.

Bookings are subject to our Terms & Conditions, which are available to read and download here.

Below is a summary of our cancellation policy - which is terrribly unimportant unless something unforeseen befalls you. We strongly recommend You consider insuring against the possibility of cancellation.

We are a small business, so cancellations can have a big impact on us, especially if we have turned away potential guests in favour of someone who has already booked and who then cancels. We do, however, appreciate that unforeseen circumstances can intervene, and we try to be as sympathetic and helpful as possible in such cases.

Your booking deposit is nominally 'non-refundable' - but we will always do our best to accommodate your needs should they change, and if we can re-let your room and give it back to you, then we will be pleased to do so. We have very rarely needed to apply the 'non-refundable' clause. If you need to cancel, we will always do our very best to re-let your room.

If you cancel more than two weeks before your intended check-in date, then your booking deposit will be retained (but if we can re-let your room, we will give it back minus an admin fee of £30.)

If you cancel at any time within two weeks of your intended check-in date, you will be required to pay for any nights which have not been re-let.

If You fail to arrive at St Cuthbert’s House to take up Your booked accommodation (‘no-show’) then you will remain liable for the total cost of Your booking.

Fair enough, don't you think?

Guest Comments

  • 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, with good breakfasts, and with interesting architecture - but there are unlikely to be many other B&Bs where the personal service and attention to detail is so expertly, 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

  • Really understates St Cuthbert's House to call it a 'B&B'.  The rooms, breakfast and overall effect knocks many a boutique hotel for six.  We will definitely be back.
    Richard & Karen, July 7 2016

  • So good we don't want to share the secret... We have stayed in B&Bs all over the UK and beyond, and this is the best ever.

  • I wish that Jeff and Jill had a B&B in every place I want to visit... I would go so far as to say that if they had another B&B I would visit that town!

  • Amazing... their thought and consideration has gone into every aspect of your experience, and they offer you such a warm welcome - I will be coming back and recommending them to all my friends. Travelling alone, they made sure I was OK...

  • Excellent in every way... It is quite simply outstanding.

  • Personal touches are too numerous to mention and I cannot recommend St Cuthbert's highly enough...

  • All expectations were exceeded... St Cuthbert's is an oasis of excellence and true hospitality.

  • You have restored our faith in human nature - the 'honesty bar' gets a big thumbs up... we will definitely be staying again.
    Mandy & Graham, Sept 16 2016

  • Thinking of starting a high-quality B&B? Then come here and see how it should be done.
    Terry & Eileen, Sept 12 2016

  • Your attention to the smallest detail really shows in the quality here
    Aidan & Val, July 16 2016
