Good Hotel Guide Review
Jeff and Jill Sutheran’s ‘superb’ B&B, in Seahouses, at the heart of the Northumberland coast, ‘fully deserves’ its praise, say Guide readers this year, who were made to feel ‘very much at home’. ‘We had a great stay.’ The B&B occupies a ‘delightfully converted’ Presbyterian church; the former sanctuary today serves as an ‘elegant’ open-plan lounge and breakfast room, with books, DVDs, travel guides and a well-stocked honesty bar. ‘Spacious, comfortable’ bedrooms have a ‘stylish’ bathroom and ‘lots of great touches’, such as dressing gowns, slippers, high-end toiletries, a capsule coffee machine, perhaps a fur rug by the bed. Breakfast is a generous, varied celebration of local produce: there’s Northumbrian bacon from the local butcher, bread from the village bakery, kippers smoked in the smokehouse not a mile away. For a punchy start to the day, ask for a jug of monastery mead, brewed on Holy Island, to accompany the morning porridge. ‘Jeff acted like our personal travel adviser, even checking the weather before booking our boat to the Farne Islands. His restaurant recommendations were spot on, too.’ (Michael Green, and others)
