St Cuthbert's Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable, calm, tranquil place to stay. We immediately felt at home and so did our dog. The location of the cottage in Dalton-Le-Dale is so beautiful. Very peaceful, with trees, a stream and birds coming to the bird table. Washing up was never a chore with that lovely view from the kitchen window! The...

I can not begin to express the level of satisfaction from our visit to Eastshaw Beach House. From the moment that Mick met us at the door until the moment we left, I truly felt welcome and at home. Breakfast was phenomenal, I suggest Mick's potato cakes, and his "loaf of the day', you will not be disappointed. Our morning...

Finding sea glass at Seaham was on the top of my daughter Lindsay's bucket list. She found Eastshaw Guesthouse through blogs on the topic. My wife and I travel internationally on a relatively regular basis an I can honestly say we have never had as wonderful a stay at any time in our lives. When we pulled into the driveway...

Phenomenal hospitality. Mick and Julie were gracious in making this a very special occasion. From the first welcome to best homemade breakfasts ever, to views in all directions of Seaham Beach- this is an amazing discovery. As a seasoned traveler, I can attest that Eastshaw Guesthouse exceeded all expectations.

One hesitates to write a glowing review for a destination, in fear of making the place so popular you can't get a reservation. But, honestly, there is no way to experience the Eastshaw Guesthouse without coming away a fan for life.
