5/5 Excellent

Gateshead serenity
This was a truly delightful stay! We loved a rural experience as opposed to the bustle of the urban centre, yet easy access to all the wonderful sites NE England has to offer. Louise was warm and welcoming - quick to respond to enquires - confirming we made the right choice to stay at this property!

5/5 Excellent

Very pleasant and quiet location
Nice clean and well equipped cottage in a quiet rural location but still only 15-20 mins from central Newcastle and Gateshead Quays. Close to other attractions and a great quiet base to explore the area.
