St Cuthbert’s House 192 Main St, North Sunderland, Seahouses, Northumberland NE68 7UB 01665 720456 Driving to St Cuthbert’s House from the south (by the shortest route). Wherever you are coming from, eventually you will need to simply pick up and follow the A1 north, past Newcastle. You need to start paying attention to these directions as you reach Alnwick on the A1, which is the nearest prominent town to Seahouses. So, as you pass Alnwick, ignore all signs for Seahouses! The first option, which is also signposted for Denwick and Alnwick Castle, will offer you Seahouses in 13 miles. Ignore it! A mile or so beyond Alnwick, the dual carriageway ends. You are now on a single-carriageway section for about 4 miles or so, and on this section you will pass another turning, offering Seahouses in 10 miles. Again, cruise straight past it. A couple of miles further, the road becomes dual carriageway again, and you will turn RIGHT off the A1 on this stretch of dual carriageway. Watch out for the minor turning to Brownieside on the Left, and get into the outside lane at this point – because your turning is RIGHT a few hundred yards further on, signposted for Preston Tower, Ellingham & Doxford Hall. Follow the minor road for 1.8 miles, to a T junction at the bottom of a short hill. Turn LEFT After 1 mile the road crosses the main East Coast railway line at Chathill. 2 miles beyond the railway, in the small hamlet of Swinhoe, turn LEFT at the (slightly staggered) crossroads, for North Sunderland At a minor junction after 1.2 miles, you give way. Turn RIGHT Follow the minor road, without deviating. There is one significant point to watch out for, when the road appears to go straight ahead, but in fact the ‘main’ part goes around a very tight RIGHT bend. Eventually you enter the village of North Sunderland. St. Cuthbert’s House is a large church-like building, one of the first on the left as you enter the village, next door to the house with a large tree in the front garden. The entrance to the car park is on the furthest side of the building. This whole adventure takes 7.2 miles or so from the A1. If you get lost, or are delayed to the extent that you are likely to arrive after 6pm, please call us on 01665 720456 or 07787 289388


Driving to St Cuthbert’s House from the north. Come south on the main A1 trunk road.  Your turning off the A1 is approximately 13 miles south of the prominent town of Berwick upon Tweed (which has a bypass.) Watch for a LEFT turn, signposted for Budle and Waren Mill, which also has a brown ‘tourist’ sign marking the Northumberland Coastal Route.  (It comes shortly after signs for Belford, to the right) Cross the main East Coast railway line, and in a few hundred metres, at the T junction, turn RIGHT. Stay on this road around all of its twists and turns.  After 4 miles it brings you to the village of Bamburgh, and you pass beneath the walls of its imposing castle… again you stay on the same road, which now brings you along the coast.  Watch out for the beautiful seascapes, and views of the Farne Islands just offshore! As you pass the sign which says ‘Welcome to Seahouses’ and the 30mph speed restriction sign, turn RIGHT.  There is a brown ‘tourist’ sign marked ‘North Sunderland local services’. Follow this lane to its end at a T junction in less than a mile, where you turn RIGHT.   (A brown sign marked ‘St Cuthbert’s House’ points the way.) St Cuthbert’s House is the prominent ‘church’ building, about 50 metres on the right.   Turn in to the car park immediately before the house, and park nose‐in to the fence! The whole adventure from the A1 is about 8 miles.
