St Cuthbert’s House in Northumberland is a green award winning bed & breakfast, and is truly embedded in the community.
We use suppliers who share our values, and in working together we can help to sustain and build our fragile local economy – something we are very proud of
The six-bedroom former church building is positioned perfectly near Northumberland’s expansive, pristine beaches at the coastal village of Seahouses. The untouched natural surroundings have clearly inspired St Cuthbert’s – with open horizons and crystal clear star-gazing nights, the environment has clearly made an impact on owners Jeff and Jill Sutheran when developing St Cuthbert’s House.
“We renovated this almost-derelict building ourselves, and it was very important to us to minimise the impact on the local environment, and to restore it as the most prominent feature of the village’s built environment. We are deeply rooted in this community, and want this to be more than a business – it’s our home, and we want our guests to be as inspired by this beautiful area, and for every visit to make a positive contribution to sustaining the viability of our community” said Jeff.
For these careful considerations, St Cuthbert’s House has been awarded a number of sustainable trophies over the past few years, including Silver medal in ‘Sustainable Tourism’ at the VisitEngland Awards 2015, Tripadvisor ‘Green Leader’ Gold Award 2014, and Green Tourism’s Gold Award.
Equally, the supplier chain is just as important to Jeff and Jill: “We buy as much of our produce as we can locally. Why wouldn’t we, when we have such amazing local produce on offer? We also use suppliers who share our values, and in working together we can help to sustain and build our fragile local economy – something we are very proud of” added Jeff.
