Our sunny, spacious loft offers a comfortable space with private shower room and TV at the top of our 30s semi. The top floor is all yours; guests have said it's like having their own flat! Blackout blinds mean dark, restful nights, and if you need to work or study there's a mobile computer desk to make life easier. We're a short bus ride from the station and city centre, St James' Park is a 20-minute walk away for football fans and it's a 10-minute stroll to the start of the Great North Run.
Your room has tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge, but we're happy for you to use the kitchen if you want to make meals, snacks etc during your stay. Please note - we don't have a microwave, but you're more than welcome to use the cooker.
If the sun shines, please feel free to enjoy our south-facing garden!

Rod and I have been Airbnb hosts since February 2015. We love living here, and we really enjoy welcoming visitors to our home, the city and the region. We're happy to offer advice about places to go and things to do, although we expect most of our visitors to enjoy exploring independently. We're a no-smoking house with a well-behaved and friendly whippet in residence.
