Bed & Breakfast
Guest Accommodation is the wide-ranging category covering anything from one-room B&Bs to larger, licensed providers, all of which are generally run by the owners. Bed and Breakfasts generally accommodate no more than six people and are like staying as a special guest in someone’s home, whilst farmhouses offer B&B style services - who’d have guessed it - on a farm!
The Townhouse Hotel in Gosforth offers some of the nicest rooms around with luxurious touches to make your stay a real pleasure, or head to the award-winning five star Stables Lodge which, just minutes from the A1, the Metrocentre and The Angel of the North, also provides guests with the highest standards in comfort and indulgence.
No.61 Guest House & Tea Rooms is perfectly located for a stay at the coast, with Tynemouth's quaint charm all on your doorstep, or for smart, clean accommodation close to Newcastle City Centre with easy access to the Metro, why not try the Kenilworth Hotel in Jesmond.
For good, old-fashioned public house hospitality, The Keelman's Lodge is a safe bet. Located in a listed building, this tradtional pub is served by the North East's oldest micro-brewery: the Big Lamp Brewery.
