About this listing
Large, quirky loft room, with small, well-fitted shower room, on the first floor of a big bungalow in a quiet, leafy suburb, close to Keele University, Royal Stoke Hospital, city and M6.
Well maintained, tastefully decorated and with a nice garden.
It's a big room, on the first floor, with quirky, sloping ceilings and a Velux window. The en-suite is small, but fitted with Villeroy and Bosch toilet, basin and a shower. Its very simply furnished, with a double bed, leather armchair, a couple of drawer units and a clothes rail. There is no specific desk in the room, but we can lend you a small folding dining table if you need something to work on, or you may like to use the newly fitted office space, located outside your room.
We are within walking distance of the hospital and Keele University, as well as the pretty market town of Newcastle. Easy access to the main routes: A34, A500 and M6 yet the surrounding area is quiet and leafy - one of the best residential areas! It's relatively easy to get to Alton Towers from here.
There are three reception rooms - lounge, dining room and conservatory to share with us. We also have a large patio and garden for you to lounge in, when the weather is warm.
You're welcome to share the kitchen if you'd like to make a meal. There will be a cupboard, some fridge and freezer space for you to store food and loads of gadgets to use.
Interaction with guests
We'd love to sit and chat and listen to you over a cup of coffee if you've got time. If you want space, and peace and quiet - that's no problem, either. Just come and find us if you need anything . We'll do our best to help you with any queries you may have.
Your room is yours, whilst you stay with us and we won't disturb you unless it's an emergency.
It's a lovely neighbourhood: wide, tree lined streets, large houses (for England) on good sized plots. It's a walk from the pretty town centre and Keele and the hospital. We often walk to each place - and it's easier to walk or cycle than find a parking place at the hospital. There are a couple of nice pubs which serve meals within a short walk as well as a tiny Indian restaurant which looks shabby, but serves delicious food.
It's a reasonable drive from Alton Towers, with 2 good routes to reach it.
It's about 30 miles from Manchester airport, 45 from Birmingham, 2 or 3 from Stoke rail station. Bus stops are within a few hundred yards.
Other things to note
We do have dogs, who are sensible and incredibly friendly. We keep them to the main family space and garden for most of the time and they should not impact on your stay.
Due to local council regulations, we don't serve breakfast - but there's almost always milk, bread, butter and cereal available but they are not gluten, dairy or nut free. If you'd like us to get you anything for your arrival, please let us know what you'd like.
No smoking or vaping, please.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
Calm, sensible and helpful. I'd like to think that we make people feel welcome in our home.
We have traveled extensively and enjoy meeting new people and trying new food. Whilst delighted to help out and chat to anyone, if you'd appreciate the company, you can be assured of peace and quiet, if that's what you'd prefer.
