And the winners are...

Dining Room, St CuthbertsWe spend a lot of time researching our holidays – checking routes to make sure they are manageable, varied and interesting, and visiting various hotels, guesthouses and inns to ensure that the people who run them are as committed to the principles of sustainable tourism as we are, while at the same time providing the welcome, comfort, cuisine and service we know you’ve come to expect.

So, it’s wonderful to hear that one of the guesthouses we use on our Northumberland short break, the delightful St Cuthbert's House, has just been awarded Gold in the Sustainable Tourism Category at the North East Tourism Awards 2011.

Add this to their 5-star Gold Award by VisitBritain and a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme, and this makes for an enviable, not to say impressive, portfolio.

Jill and Jeff Sutheran, St Cuthbert's HouseSt Cuthbert’s House Bed & Breakfast is a 200-year-old former Presbyterian Church located in the quiet hamlet of North Sunderland just outside the pretty fishing village of Seahouses. Enthusiastic owners, Jeff and Jill Sutheran have worked tirelessly over recent years to renovate the old chapel into a stylish guesthouse, full of character and comfort, and into which many original features, like the pulpit and communion table, have been carefully integrated.

Inntravellers can be assured of the warmest of welcomes, having discovered the beautiful landscapes and coast of Northumberland on a relaxing three-day walking break. St Cuthbert’s House makes the perfect base from which to further explore the surrounding countryside – including the remarkable Farne Islands – and somewhere comfortable in which to relax after the walk. Starting in the small hamlet of Fenwick, our route follows St Oswald’s Way (which initially coincides with St Cuthbert’s Way) through the rolling Northumberland countryside to Belford before walking on to Bamburgh and following the coast down to Seahouses.

You, too, can follow In the Footsteps of Saints to enjoy leisurely walking through the beautiful Northumberland countryside, see abundant wildlife, meet the friendly locals and stay in one the UK’s best B&Bs (and that’s official).
