St Cuthberts cottage is lovley. Near to the church with a small stream behind and access to a path running through a wooded valley it offers a great place to explore the local country side and noth east coast. Not far from the A19. I highly recommend this as a place to stay.
A warm,cosy but spacious cottage awaits it's guests, a roaring log-burning stove, a welcome hamper (a lovely surprise, including Mick's awesome home-made bread!), immaculately clean, clear instructions.The practicalities are all covered.Mick and Julie are extremely helpful and friendly should you have a query.Cottage located next to babbling brook, a small children's park,wildlife and church, within a quiet village. Located a short drive away (or can walk), to Seaham beach. Seaham is famous for it's sea-glass and Tommy statue by Ray Lonsdale, There are plenty of shops and restaurants.. Whatever you choose to do during the day , its lovely to return to St.Cuthbert's Cottage. My 2 dachshunds relaxed all weekend. Word of warning......you may not want to leave and you will definitely want to return! Many thanks Mick and Julie.
Spent 3 nights at the cottage which is in the town where I was born .
Visited child hood memories and met up with cousins I hadn't seen in a while ..
The cottage is lovely and VERY well equipped every thing in it just like home , lovely end cottage with a sun house and a stream at the bottom of the garden outside the gate is a grass area leading to a wood and playground for kids not that we saw any it was lovely and quiet and the dog loved her little walk there .
Mick the owner leaves a lovely food basket with chocolate biscuits ,milk, butter , large carton of orange juice ,crisps , dips , olives , bag of chocolates and more but I mustn't forget the large loaf of home made bread with chives it was delicious . There's was also tea , coffee , 3 different cereals every sauce you would need washing caps if you need to use the washer also dishwasher tablets the bathroom also had everything you would need in there too .
It's near seaham harbour where you can visit TOMMY THE SOLDIER ...A TRIP TO DURHAM CITY IS A MUST TAKES ABOUT 25 MINUTES THE SCENIC WAY . Also Sunderland is about 15 minutes drive along the coast if the ladies like to have a shop .this cottage plus his bed and breakfast at seaham eastshaw guest house gets booked up and I certainly know why now we were lucky and got a late booking due to some one cancelling .
We will certainly be back I'm sure now I know about this place my brother's visit from Australia and America and love to come to seaham the town they were born .
Anything you need to know about the area the lovely owner Mick is happy to help .
Warm and well equipped, thoughtfully arranged, lovely location, very helpful owner and super welcome hamper
