A delightful, one night stay at the Lighthouse at the end of cycling the C2C. Very convenient as it's close to Tynemouth where there's little choice of accommodation. Really impressed how clean and well-decorated it was. The bed was so comfortable! Jerry and Margaret were very welcoming and extremely helpful. The breakfast was great with plenty of fresh fruit available.

We stayed one night at the Lighthouse, a short walk from centre of Whitley Bay. Very nicely decorated and very welcoming landlord. We had room 5 at the top of the house, a miracle of getting plenty into a small space. Great breakfast and great chat. There is a residents bar facility, with a TV. Not for those with mobility...

Quite and peaceful, comfortable bed and a really good night's sleep. Lots of choice on the breakfast menu. Close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Gerry & Margaret made me feel welcome - I would certainly stay again.

Stayed 1 night with four friends while cycling Hadrian Wall Cycle route. Very conveniently positioned for promenade and town centre. Room facilities are 1st class. Breakfast choice was excellent with a great variety of fresh fruit and cooked options. Jerry and his wife were extremely accommodating. Nothing was a problem to them.

Difficult to describe how good this B&B is. The location is great, just off the seafront. Jerry was the perfect host, breakfast was wonderful and set me up brilliantly for my rather long day cycling. The room was lovely, recently decorated, light and comfortable with great en-suite facilities. I actually can't recommend this highly enough and very reasonable too. Thanks... More

Thank you Jerry and Margaret for making our stay at the Lighthouse so comfortable. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was fantastic and set us up for the day. It was an excellent start to our 200 mile bike ride across England and would recommend your B& B to anyone coming to Whitley Bay.
