Hey - I recognise that person!

Angela is staying in the Bede room just now. She decided to watch the DVD of 'Tales from Northumberland' this evening, and came running out to summon us, very excited - because she saw herself in it! 

This is her in the foreground, wielding the camera... This episode is about the Lindisfarne Gospels in the NE, and she had no idea the crew were filming for the programme as she led a pilgrimage group to Holy Island.  What a hoot!

There's a copy of the DVD of each of the three series of 'Tales from Northumberland' in every room here at St Cuthbert's House.  They're great!

Double winners at the National Awards 2016!

Written by

We were absolutely thrilled to be awarded top honours amongst the winners at the national VisitEngland Awards 2016, at their swanky 'do' in Blackpool a short while ago.  

Not only did we win honours in the B&B category, but we were also at top table in the Sustainable Tourism category too! This was a great honour, and it's not something we take lightly - it's really great to be judged as being amongst the very best in the whole country in both of these categories - but the main reason we enter these awards is to reassure you, our guest, that we've been assessed, objectively measured, and judged as amongst the very best.  You're not 'taking a chance' with your precious time away...  Come and see.

Fancy a coffee? A REAL coffee?

We know that one of life's delights for many of our guests is a real, proper cup of coffee.  A cup of instant-from-granules just doesn't cut it, does it?

Well, if we are to be honest about this, we've struggled for a long time to find a solution to this conundrum here at St Cuthbert's House, because all the solutions we've tried have offered the potential to be very, very messy.  Until now. 

Cue fanfare! We've just taken delivery of a shiny new Nespresso coffee machine for each and every room at SCH - which means you can enjoy a cup of beautiful, real coffee whenever you want.  And we have the full range of 28 Grand Crus coffee capsules here, on your personalised in-room coffee menu. So whether you fancy a strong Espresso shot, a short cup, or a long one, decaf, intense, or flavoured... they're all waiting for you here. Come on in, press a couple of buttons, and relax with a beautifully crafted and perfectly delivered, real coffee...

All the Nespresso coffees are sourced from plantations around the world where the producers are paid fairly.  And all the capsules are 100% recyclable.  So every cup helps to make the world a better place. And that's good to reflect on whilst you dreamily sip...

Quite a haul in 2015!

2015 has been a very special year for us here at St Cuthbert's House. 

We won a Silver Award at the National VisitEngland Awards ceremony, and TWO Gold Awards at the North-East Tourism Awards! 

We were also honoured with a special 'RoSE' Award from VisitEngland in 'Recognition of Service Excellence', and the 'Editor's Choice' Award from the Good Hotel Guide.  Quite a haul!

The main reason we put SCH forward for these VisitEngland Awards in particular, is to assure you that we are serious about striving for the very highest standards, to ensure you enoy your stay.

Paul & Pat have stayed with us here at SCH many times now, often bringing friends to share a weekend with them.  As they were leaving this morning, we asked them to tell you why they keep coming back. 

If you're wondering whether you can 'trust' SCH for your precious time away in Northumberland, then reassure yourself - watch their one-minute video!

We're very proud to once again sponsor Zach Kibirige, Newcastle Falcons' flying winger, who's just back from a serious injury - and looking good as he runs out for England Rugby and looks forward to Falcons' pre-season training getting underway. Come on Zach!

Zach scored this 'wonder-try' for England U20's during the 2013-14 campaign, before his horrific injury.

St Cuthbert's House wins 'Best B&B in England 2014'!

We were absolutely delighted to win the GOLD award in the Guest Accommodation category, at the VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2014, at a swanky do in Cheltenham! The annual Gold Award is the highest accolade which VisitEngland can bestow, and means that we're their 'Best B&B' for 2014. Wonderful... Three-quarters of our family joined us at the Awards bash (we miss you Joe!) and I think we scrub up pretty well, don't you?

    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...
