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.

I have travelled to 53 countries. Our stay at St. Cuthbert's was the best. Not one of the best. It was the best.
From the minute you walk in through the door, it is so relaxing! Lovely warm welcome from Jeff & Jill who do everything possible to make your stay special.

It's your attention to detail that make the difference - and your generous attitude, in helping with trips out - and even our driving route home!

This was our fourth stay at SCH. Jeff and Jill always manage to balance what is a very professional and slick operation with immense warmth and friendliness.

After many visits, how can something so perfect seem better every time?
Catherine & Keith, August 31 2019
We have been treated like family! You are charming hosts… with a good sense of (Aussie?!) humour.
Brendan & Patricia, August 29 2019
Thank you for always going the extra mile to make all your guests feel like friends, not just visitors. This is a special place.
Jo, Derek, Alex, Ben & Holly, August 28 2019
Just – wow! The quality of the accommodation, the fabulous breakfasts and the attention to detail are matched only by the warmth of the welcome. Thanks.

An exemplar B&B. One of the best? No – THE best!
Anne & Dave, August 9 2019
A master-class in B&B.

St Cuthbert’s House is one of a kind.

Thank you Jeff & Jil for your welcoming hospitality. Our breakfasts were very special – we loved trying the local specialities. And your generous help and advice made a huge difference.
Prue & Derek, July 11 2019
Jeff & Jill, you have worked your magic and once more we leave refreshed and replenished. Looking forward to next time.
