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.

In town to attend a wedding with several formal and informal events in and around Newcastle, we found the perfect "base camp" at The Lighthouse Guesthouse. Our hosts were lovely, welcoming upon arrival, equally ready to leave you to get on with it or step in with a recommendation. Jerry's local knowledge is second to none and based on his... More

Another excellent stay. First stayed in March, just spent another two days with Jerry and Margaret. They are really good hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Jerry sorted us out with two great restaurants, one for each evening: Antonio's (Italian) and the Indian Lounge. Both are highly recommended. Thanks - see you again!

I stayed in room # 3 in October, 2013, and it was a magnificent room! The only thing that oushined the room was the thoughtfulness and helpfulness of the innkeeper! In addition, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! I would definitely stay again! Thanks for everything!
