My home is situated in a much sought after residential area of Jesmond within a 10 minute walk of the city centre. Close by are three large scenic parks with lots of walks nearby. You will be staying in my home and I would hope that you would find it extremely comfortable.
I have lived in Jesmond for 25 years and was born in Durham City so I can give you any information you may need about your stay in Newcastle including places to visit and sights to see.
The accommodation is ideal for a professional person with business at local hospitals or the Universities which are all nearby.
A local minibus service runs from our street every 30 minutes into the centre of the city and the main east coast Railway Station (the No.6). Nearest linking Metro Stations are Jesmond and West Jesmond but the local bus or just walking are much closer. We are pet friendly as we have a very well behaved dog, cat and a rabbit in the back garden patio which are both contained.
I look forward to greeting you!
*Please see my separate listing for the second room, each room has to be booked separately. Thank-you.
This is your home while staying in Newcastle so I would hope you would feel as comfortable. And treat it with a little TLC while here.
Please feel free to come and go as you please.
Jennifer made me feel very welcome, with prompt and clear communication. She even picked me up from the Metro station, and had ensured that she had plenty of breakfast foods to my preference.
I was very happy to get her advice on my travel plans and she shared her many guidebooks on the specific places I was interested in visiting.
The room was well set up and the bed and linen very comfortable. And Jesmond was a pleasant and convenient suburb to be my base.
I would love to return in the future.
Jennifer's place is a true delight. Jesmond is a great part of Newcastle – quiet, great cafes and a pleasant walk from the CBD. The property itself is immaculate and Jennifer went out of her way to make me feel welcome, including dripping me off at the Metro for my journey home. Highly recommend Jennifer and her home to anyone looking to spend time in Newcastle.
Jennifer was really welcoming and came to pick me up from Jesmond metro. I arrived relatively late but this wasn't a problem. The neighbourhood was ideal - really handy for Jesmond and the town too. Jennifer was also really good about communicating before I arrived and it was all very easy. The room was very comfortable and warm - a great stay and good to have local knowledge as I was up looking for a flat to rent.
It was such a pleasure to meet and stay with Jennifer at her lovely home. She couldn't have been more helpful, meeting me at the nearby metro, making sure I had everything I needed like hairdryers and then providing me with a delicious breakfast of croissants and even a homemade beetroot and chocolate brownie for the journey back!
The bedroom (single on the ground floor) was very comfortable - I slept well on the good bed and had plenty of places to put stuff, plugs etc.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean and again there was space to leave my toiletries bag.
The location was ideal for me as I was going to a birthday party in Jesmond. The area seemed very safe, even late at night.
I would definitely recommend this airbnb and would come back again myself.
Jennifer is a charming, helpful and friendly host. Her home is in a quiet part of town - the room is cosy and the single bed warm and comfortable. I could not have asked for anything more.
Jennifer picked me up from the metro station and it felt as if we had known each other for a long time by the informal way of talking. I felt at home right away, chatting over a cup of tea.
The house is situated in a quiet area and I usually took the bus into the centre of Newcastle. I found walking a bit too far.
We had some nice conversations and I appreciated Jennifer's correction of some English vocabulary because I had come to England to improve my English.
I enjoyed my stay and the bed was very comfortable.
I was warmly welcolmed by Jennifer (and her Spaniel Sourja). She had an array of tourist information available as well as information on local golf courses and on the location for my course that I was attending that I asked for. The neighbourhood is largely populated by local University Students and I found it friendly and safe. Access to local transport was close - Bus outside the door to the house plus the Metro 10 minutes away. I would definitely go back and stay with Jennifer.
