Just a few quick words to say how fantastic St. Cuthbert's House is. We had a two night stay this last weekend (5th-7th April) and would have loved to have stopped longer. Everything about the place is right.
The building is a renovated chapel (I'm no expert but would say it's one of those Wesleyan type places?) and is just about the last building on the way out of the village. Plenty of safe parking to the rear. Jeff met us at the door and he's the kind of fella that immediately puts you at your ease, you feel like you've known him years in minutes. The hall way opens out into a huge open room which just oozes class and good taste whilst feeling totally welcoming and warm.
We had one of the downstairs bedrooms. The rooms are fantastic.. huge comfortable bed, all the amenities and little extras that make it all the more special. The bathrooms are something to be seen!.. a spacious wet room with monsoon style shower. Just amazing.
The breakfasts are perfect too. Jill prepares them in the kitchen off the main room and the smell in the morning of breakfast and coffee is soooperb. I went for the Northumberland Breakfast which is perfect.. not too much but more than enough.. quality food cooked perfectly, no tinned rubbish here. As much cereal and fruit as you could possibly want. My wife had kedgeree one day and locally smoked kipper the day after.. both top notch. Jeff serves and nothing is too much trouble without ever being in your face.
The house is maybe 15 minutes walk into the town. You must drink in the Old Ship Inn above the harbour at least once.. love the place - crab sandwiches and a pint (cracking). If you fancy a curry, we absolutely loved it in The Spice House (which is probably the first building you get to in the actual ''town''), it was amongst the best we've ever had. If you fancy a pub meal then the Links pub across the road from Spice House is way better than it looks from the outside and the food is excellent pub fayre.
Over all can't recommend St Cuthbert's and your hosts Jeff and Jill highly enough.
