Good Hotel Guide Review
‘What a find!’ enthuses a regular Guide reader, of this ‘brilliant’ B&B in a ‘lovingly restored’ Presbyterian church on the ‘beautiful’ Northumberland coast. ‘Great hosts’ Jill and Jeff Sutheran live in the manse next door. Part of the church’s former sanctuary, the Cuthbert room still contains the original harmonium, wooden pillars and tall windows; it is the communal heart of the B&B, with the breakfast room at one end and sofas at the other (lots of local information, too). Fancy a drink? Help yourself to the well-stocked honesty bar, which includes botanically brewed soft drinks and the house beer. Bedrooms are ‘spacious’ and ‘comfortable’, provided with dressing gowns and slippers; the Bede room, on the ground floor, is suitable for guests with mobility issues. Breakfast makes a feature of the local smoked fish. Try kipper pâté, or ‘the best-ever’ kedgeree, made with oak-smoked haddock from the village smokehouse. In the evening, the hosts have plenty of restaurant recommendations to share. Listen out for music nights: themselves musicians, the Sutherans organise occasional folk concerts. (GM, and others)
