Check Availability, Book Online

If you want to check availability and make a reservation immediately, you can call us on 01665 720456, or use the Availability Search box below, which will link you to our online booking page.

That page will also show you when we do have availability, if you have enquired about dates when we're full - so that's useful!

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.

The dates in green show dates when we have some availability. But if the booking system does not allow you to book dates you want even though they are green, it may be because a change of room would be required - which the booking system does not permit!  In this case, please call us - we are more communicative and intelligent than the computer, and can often solve the problem.

 

Bookings are subject to our Terms & Conditions.

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

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.

If you cancel more than two weeks before your intended check-in date, then your booking deposit will be retained. (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. We have no desire or intention to 'profit' from your cancellation.)

If you cancel at any time within two weeks of your intended check-in date, then we will do our very best to re-let your room. If we are unable to do so, 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.
    Andrea, Oct 18 2016

  • All expectations were exceeded... St Cuthbert's is an oasis of excellence and true hospitality.
    Johnny & Sheila, Mar 20 2017

  • Excellent in every way... It is quite simply outstanding.
    Sarah & Larry, Oct 4 2016

  • 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!
    Christine, Oct 12 2016

  • Personal touches are too numerous to mention and I cannot recommend St Cuthbert's highly enough...
    Graeme, Sept 30 2016

  • 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...
    Sue, Oct 29 2016

  • 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

  • We're VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England' for 2017!

    We're VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England' for 2017!

    We were delighted to be shortlisted again, amongst the top 3 finalists from around the whole country, when we went to the VisitEngland 'Awards for Excellence 2017' ceremony at the Waldorf Hotel last week.

    But then we were absolutely thrilled to be awarded the top spot - the Gold Award, making us VisitEngland's 'Best B&B in England 2017' -  as we were in 2014 too.  To win this prestigious and highly-prized accolade a second time is very special indeed. 

    The VisitEngland Awards for Excellence are regarded as 'the Tourism Oscars', and measure us against the very best accommodation businesses in the whole country.  To win is amazing for us - and good for you too!

    As part of the proces we are 'secretly shopped' by an experienced judge and assessor, who wrote in his debrief:

    "This was an extremely positive experience. Jeff and Jill are consummate hosts - my partner commented, unprompted, that “I feel as if I am visiting friends.” Service was relaxed yet attentive. Accommodation is very comfortable, and the communal areas, including honesty bar, really convivial..."

    This is very affirming for us, for sure - but the real value in a comment like this is that you can be reassured, by someone who has evaluated and assessed the very best B&Bs in the whole country, that your time at SCH can provide you with everything you hope for.  And that's priceless.  Come and see...

  • Saturday May 27 - Blair Dunlop

    Saturday May 27 - Blair Dunlop

    What can we say about Blair...  Well, he is very much a house-favourite here, a young man whose guitar skills alone are repeatedly winning him accolades in the serious music press.  Add to that his remarkable song-writing and an endearing stage presence, and you can see why his star is seriously on the rise.  Here's his PR/bio:

    Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released three albums and two EPs, and toured widely around the globe. To achieve all of this in a short 4-year career is astounding alone, but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes. His third album ‘Gilded’ was released in May 2016 on his own label – Gilded Wings – and was widely acclaimed, gaining BBC Radio 2 Playlist status for the two single releases (‘The Egoist’ and ‘356’).

    Prior to this Blair released his acclaimed album ‘House Of Jacks’ in mid 2014 which lived up to the promise of his 2012 debut ‘Blight and Blossom’ - the quality of which had contributed to his winning the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award.

  • Clare votes us her No 1!

    Clare votes us her No 1!

    We've been enjoying reading Clare Balding's new book recently. She stayed with us here at St Cuthbert's House a while ago, but we were really taken aback when folks began to call to tell us 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!

    Want to see what's so special about Northumberland?

    Some time ago, we began work with our local Tourism Association to produce a video showing some of the things which make this area so very special.  Now the video is complete, and we are deeply grateful to the remarkable young film-maker Cain Scrimgeour for working patiently with us across the seasons, to create something very, very beautiful. This is 7 minutes long, and we urge you to settle back and watch...
