Kenton is a peaceful, green, residential neighbourhood, occupied mostly by families, with nearby parkland which is ideal for picnics and cycling. I know my neighbours, which is great!

Easy access to the city centre with its universities, hospitals, shops, and restaurants.
Commute by public tranport from the city centre/ train station is by bus, the ride takes 10-20 min (4 miles). The bus frequency is 10 min during the day, and 20 min at night (after around 7 or 8 pm). The bus stop is a 30-second stroll from the house.
The bus route takes you through many key parts of Newcastle city centre- the Haymarket and Monument Metro stations, the train station, Newcastle University, Northumbria University, Grainger market, the Centre for Life, and the coach station.
During the summer: If you're the sporty type and are coming by bicycle, it's a pleasant 15-minute ride to town, through small neighbourhood roads and across a beautiful stretch of open land called the Town Moor. Check out the cows and the gorgeous sky in good weather!
In the 'Calendar' tab, the Airbnb engine states, 'We suggest that you contact the host to confirm availability and rates before submitting a reservation request.' Please note that for short stays (i.e. anything less than a few weeks), this is really not necessary and tends to slow the process down- prices are as specified by the Airbnb price calculator. So please feel free to go ahead and place a reservation without messaging me first- you will receive prompt notice of the acceptance of your booking.
Also, if you are interested in my space but have not yet made a confirmed booking, please do not attempt to include your contact details in your messages, as the Airbnb software automatically censors such information and I will not be able to read it. Until a booking is confirmed, I will only be able to contact you through the Airbnb messaging system, not through any alternative means such as phone or email.
The room was really nice and had everything I needed during my stay. The house is really close to the bus stop which is handy and there are regular buses into the centre of Newcastle. Xing is a really nice person, interesting and laid back!
We loved our short stay with Xing. The room was clean and warm. There was an additional heater provided, but we did not need this as the room was very cosy. The bed was really comfortable and hangers were provided for our clothes. The room is on the ground floor and feels very private - you really wouldn't know if anyone else was in the house, so it would be ideal for anyone wanting to do some work.
We only got to meet Xing briefly as we were on a quick stop over, but she was very friendly and we felt at ease instantly. Communication was excellent.
The area was quiet and it's quick and easy to get into the city centre. We would absolutely stay here again.
Firstly - Xing was lovely - really friendly and easy going. Her personality is the best feature in this accommodation cos she is just so warm and welcoming! The accommodation itself is very minimal. After my first night Xing asked if I was warm enough and I was quite happily. Unfortunately by the last night of my stay the cold had really set in (sorry Xing - I didn't mention this to you cos I was so busy). It made sleeping a little difficult. If you are backpacking in the UK summer - this place would be OK - but if you are looking to stay and work in the cold months (which I was). I probably wouldn't choose this place.
I was quite disappointed with the room. Xing was very nice but the room was damp and cold. The downstairs bathroom wasn't clean either; it's a shame as the reviews were all really positive.
Xing was a very helpful and friendly host and the room was neat and tidy.
Comfortable and quiet room in residential area of Newcastle. Host Xing is very welcoming and had plenty of local info on where to get food/cashpoints that kind of thing.
Left feeling like I've known her for months! Xing is really easy to get along with.
I had the pleasure of staying at Xing's house over a weekend and found her to be a very welcoming, friendly and interesting person. The room was exactly as pictured, clean and comfortable. I would recommend anyone to stay.
Wonderful place to stay at in Newcastle! It's at a nice quiet neighborhood with easy access from city center. I had a bit of problems checking in at first but Xing handled the problem really well and I managed to get into the extremely neat and comfortable room for a good rest eventually! (:
Xing was de desbetreffende dagen zelf niet aanwezig. De sleutel lag op een door haar aangegeven plaats. Haar gastvrijheid en vertrouwen in ons, als huurder, vonden we heel prettig. Via sms vroeg Xing ons nog of alles goed was verlopen, ook heeft ze ons duidelijk de reis- en eet mogelijkheden uitgelegd De kamer waar we sliepen, was schoon We hebben rustig en lekker geslapen. Voor de rest van de tijd waren we weg. Voor ons is het een fijne ervaring geweest via Airbnb Newcastle te leren kennen. Anne en Riny
