You can be reassured when you check how other people have felt about their stay, before you take the plunge and make your booking. So here are our reviews on Tripadvisor and, further down this page, some comments from our own Guest Book.
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'
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.

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.

Personal touches are too numerous to mention and I cannot recommend St Cuthbert's highly enough...
Excellent in every way... It is quite simply outstanding.
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!
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.
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...
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.

Thinking of starting a high-quality B&B? Then come here and see how it should be done.

This was our second holiday... as perfect as the first... we've felt like we were 'coming home'. Thank you so much, we look forward to coming back again!
Doris & Patrick, July 12 2016
Your attention to the smallest detail really shows in the quality here
Aidan & Val, July 16 2016
All those little extras... so much appreciated. A wonderful haven tucked away.
Stella & Eugene, July 21 2016
What a wonderful experience of Northumbrian hospitality. Our first choice, when we return!
Steve & Gill, August 8 2016
We just keep on coming back... Absolutely delightful, as ever, thank you both.
Roger & Kate, August 11 2016
We have had the best time... Thank you for making this such a memorable holiday.
Nicky & Earl, August 20 2016
Superb - one of the very best we've stayed in, at home and abroad.
Michael & Christine, Sept 9 2016
Wonderful... such kindness and thoughtfulness is worth a great deal. We'll be back.
Petra & Michael, June 1 2016
Great to have such a wide choice for breakfasts, after a solid week of 'English breakfast'!
