We recently spent 5 nights at this lovely house which had excellent amenities. Everywhere was immaculately clean, the rooms had large comfy beds and the wet rooms were sparkling. There was a wide breakfast menu which provided a delicious and hearty start to the day. Sue and Miles were welcoming and helpful.
The B and B is situated high on the hill over Lyme Regis. This affords wonderful views and the opportunity to tone up leg muscles (though there are regular buses for the faint at heart.)
A great bonus is the restaurant in the town owned by Sue and Miles. "Turles" is a superbly run establishment and the food is to die for. We went there twice and the friendly and efficient service combined with the quality of the meals makes it a very special place.
This is certainly a place to recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Room 1 had a sea view

This is the second time we have stayed at St. Cuthbert's and were very pleased that in Sue's own words "nothing had changed" because the whole experience is wonderful - the rooms (we were in number 1) are so very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The range of choices for breakfast cater for all needs with good quality food and plentiful portions served. Sue and Miles are perfect hosts with good local knowledge and make your stay relaxing and welcoming. A third visit is definitely on the agenda!

We returned to St. Cuthberts recently and once again, had a wonderful stay. Miles and Sue have a very relaxed , friendly air about them that rubs off and puts you in the same frame of mind as soon as you get there. Pretty much every review you will read about St. Cuthberts will be singing its praises and there is nothing more to be said. I added this review just as a way of saying many thanks for a perfect break and look forward to staying at St. Cuthberts next year. Anyone thinking of staying there, do it . Its not possible to be dissapointed.

Room Tip: We had room 2 , which on a very hot weekend was lovely and cool. Room 1 got the sun in the afternoon

We picked St Cuthberts on our first visit last year because it seems to be the only b&b which caters comfortably for three people. Our daughter was particularly pleased to meet the newest member of staff, Hank, an adorable and well behaved Shih-Tzu who only comes out with his older companion, Gus, if visitors are keen to see them.

The atmosphere of St Cuthberts' dining room is warm and friendly; there is no fixed time for breakfast so sometimes we sat with other people and sometimes we were on our own. As there are only two double bedrooms and the annexe, there can only be seven people at any one time. We would never consider anywhere serving breakfast in our bedroom as one of the pleasures of staying in a b&b is talking to the hosts and other visitors in the dining room. Sue and Miles are both in the restaurant business which makes a huge difference to their gourmet breakfasts. One should really stay a minimum of 4 nights, as we did, to enjoy their extensive breakfast menu.

I have read that mass-produced bottles of water are bad for the environment so the large filtered bottle of water in the fridge is a very good idea as are the large bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the bathroom. Small bottles of toiletries are not really very eco-friendly and are expensive. The bathroom basin also meets with my husband's approval; he is not keen on pretentious square ones (or square plates!).

The only “free” treats we like are the fresh jug of milk and delicious cookies provided every day for a lovely cup of tea.

There is an automated e-mail that hosts can send thanking their visitors for staying with them, saying that they enjoyed having them and trust that they enjoyed their stay with a – P.S. they would welcome a review. The greater the number of reviews which are posted, the more it affects the establishment's ranking. I would not write a review if there was the merest mention, however obliquely. As for writing responses to reviews, Sue and Miles seem to be more concerned with looking after their guests.

To help people visiting from abroad, Uplyme is 1 ½ miles inland whereas Lyme Regis is by the sea. Rousdon is also 3 miles out of Lyme Regis.

Well worth a visit is the exquisite National Trust property “A La Ronde” which is situated slightly north of Exmouth.

St Cuthbert's is by far and away the best B&B that we have stayed in. The room was like a home from home, with wonderful comfortable beds and great touches such as: a useful fridge, interesting variety of books, binoculars to enjoy the sea-view and a very luxuriously appointed wet room. The owners were very relaxed and friendly, providing superb breakfasts and interesting advice on the local places of interest. The walk up the hill from Lyme Regis to the B&B is a long, steep walk, however, the town is built on the side of a hill, and so it would be hard to avoid this wherever you stayed. The parking is a challenge, as there are narrow spaces to negotiate, especially if arriving after dark. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the accommodation to anyone who is looking for a luxury B&B in Lyme Regis.

Room Tip: Room 1 had a great sea view.
