Great host who provided excellent communication before and throughout our stay. Ideal bolt hole for visiting Newcastle, especially if you have small children. Kitchen is small and not ideally suited if you like self catering. Thank you for your hospitality.

Interaction with guests
We live in the adjacent residence (see floorplan in photo gallery) so we have had the common wall between the flat and the house heavily insulated to minimise noise transfer. When you book we will provide you the keylocker details to arrive at a time that suits you and to…
