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.

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
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'!
Judy & Ken, June 3 2016
Great rooms, fabulous food, and the best hosts you could wish for. We're back again next week - hurrah!
Glenn & Jane June 7 2016
Excellent... we will definitely be returning here
Pauline & Steve, June 18 2016
What a gorgeous place. We've enjoyed your hospitality and kindness so much. We'll recommend St Cuthbert's House wholeheartedly.
Gordon & Anne, June 18 2016
Our visits here are always special. We leave relaxed, refreshed and renewed. We treasure such quality time here. Thank you so much.
Dilys & Gerald, July 4 2016
Fantastic 'extras', like a great hairdryer - not the usual 'hotel' type which takes forever to dry your hair. We had everything we could possibly need, or want - fabulous!
Janet & John, May 15 2016
We've run out of superlatives...
