St. Cuthbert's House

St. Cuthbert's House

St. Cuthbert’s House near Seahouses, Northumberland, told of two really great visitor experiences on its Facebook page the other day.

They are about very positive visitor experiences in the beautiful county of Northumberland, and about people who work here going above what’s normally expected to be helpful and friendly.

One guest at St Cuthbert’s House went for cake and tea at a local place and commented to the waitress how great the cake was.  The waitress disappeared for a few moments and then reappeared with the recipe for the visitor.

The other little story is about a visitor on a local bus.  She had no change, only a £20 note, so the bus driver made an unscheduled stop outside the Post Office so that she could get change for her fare.

There are countless stories like this happening all over the north and in the Scottish Borders. They are excellent examples of the legendary friendliness of people in the north and just one of the many reasons why people love to come to Northumberland and enjoy their precious holiday here.
