How to get here

Here we are, we're over here...

Here are some driving directions in pdf format, which bring you from the main A1 trunk road directly to the front door, via the shortest and most direct route. I can personally guarantee their accuracy. They will open in a new tab or window.

If you're coming from the south then these are the directions you need.

If you're approaching from Scotland then you need this set of directions.

Here's a location map of St Cuthbert's House, on Google maps.

Comprehensive information on this page will help you actually get to St Cuthbert's House - which of course most people choose to do by car. But you should seriously consider leaving it in the car park once you've arrived, at least for some of your days - because the local bus makes it possible to enjoy linear walks by taking the bus out to Craster, or Belford for example, and then walking home. This makes a great day out!

There are also 3-day, 7-day and multi-journey discount bus tickets available, which work out much cheaper than single trips. Buses are very regular, running hourly throughout the main summer season and two-hourly at other times - we can help you plan your journey. The bus links the main local towns of Berwick and Alnwick, and all coastal villages along the way.  The new fleet of double-deckers (which run most, but not all, of the timetabled services) have leather seats and free wifi!  We have a folder on the coffee-table with lots of great ideas for car-free days, and if you're using the bus we will issue you with your own personal copy of the timetable.

We're keen to do our bit to develop this worthy initiative, and so how about this; if you present us with tickets for three bus journeys you've made whilst staying with us, then we'll reward you with a bottle of our very good house wine. As long as you promise not to drink it on the bus...

To quote an old pop song I vaguely remember: 'I don't care how you get here; just get here if you can...'

  • Friday May 25 - Eli West & Olav Mjelva

    Friday May 25 - Eli West & Olav Mjelva

    Eli West played a memorable gig at the house several years ago with Cahalen Morrison, and this time he's back as half of another mouth-watering duo, partnering this time with Nordic fiddler Olav Mjelva. These guys are both absolutely top-drawer - and together they create a duo which is even greater than the sum of its parts!

    Seattle-based Eli is a sublime musician, described recently by both Martin Simpson and Richard Hawley as 'an incredible musician's musician'. Praise indeed. He is one of the most tasteful and innovative of contemporary American roots musicians, combining old time, folk, jazz and improvisational elements. His angular guitar phrasing and subtle vocal style came to prominence in that acclaimed partnership with Cahalen Morrison.

    Eli's recent release 'The Both' sees him taking the lead on electric and acoustic guitars, banjo, and pedal steel, whilst remaining a thoughtful collaborator – here with some of his close friends and personal heroes, like jazz great Bill Frisell.  The new album focuses on the story of his two grandfathers; one a decorated WWII prisoner of war, the other a Brethren preacher and peace advocate.

    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.

  • 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...

    The Good Hotel Guide - we're listed

    We're in the Good Hotel Guide!

    We are delighted once again to be included in the 2017 edition of the Good Hotel Guide, after being chosen as 'Editor's Choice' in the 'Sustainable Tourism' section of the Good Hotel Guide in the 2016 printed edition.

    The Good Hotel Guide is fiercely independent. A hotel cannot simply pay for an entry into the Guide - inclusion is by invitation only, and is rigorously monitored by a network of 'inspectors' who constantly report back on standards of service. To be included at all is great honour for us - but it's also a great recommendation for you - especially as the Editor considers us amongst his 'choices'!
