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.

Truly, we could not fault St Cuthbert's House - not that we came looking for faults! You have made it a real gem, thank you for a lovely stay.
Julie & Andy, Oct 6 2017 (formerly B&B owners!)
This place is a cut above in every respect. The rooms, the breakfasts, the atmosphere are all well above expectations. Couple this with first class hosts and you have a set-up made ìn heaven. Do yourself a favour and book a stay.

Everyone says how splendid it is at St Cuthbert's House. And do you know - they're right.

Thanks... for one of the world's all-time great breakfasts!

St Cuthbert's House and all its facilities are faultless, but you yourselves have made our visit very special - from the lovely welcome, to all the personal touches. We'll be back.

Thanks for making our holiday such a success. From Jill's gorgeous breakfasts, to Jeff's amazing knowledge of the area, and the comfort of our accessible room - the best we have stayed in anywhere in the UK - everything was just great.
