Cuddy's Cave

Cave In Doddington, Northumberland

A small cave in a huge rock up a hill where it was thought St Cuthbert may have stayed.

If you think of St Cuthbert you probably think of St Cuthberts Way and also the cave up in Holburn. But did you know there is also another “St Cuthbert's Cave” 5 miles away in Doddington also referred to as Cuddy's Cave.

Situated halfway up a small hill this cave juts out of the ground like a huge elephant's foot!

Maybe this was St Cuthbert's first rung on the property ladder before upsizing to the big cave in Holburn.

According to the local literature it is a “small artificial cave in the side of a large rock near the bank of the Till. The cave and rock are well known as the place where, it is said, "the Devil hanged his Granny."

And here is a quick fly away from Red5 Drone.

Couple of options here. Head straight towards the cave and look for a small white pipe that is across the barbed wire fence. Careful as you go. Alternatively head to the right of the cave to a gate, head up the hill then left towards to the cave. There are clear paths, but if you are visiting in the summer be prepared to fight your way through the ferns!

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
