Be our Guest
Come and join us as a guest in our home in the beautiful North-East of England. We are just an hour's flight or a 3 hour train journey from London.
We are also ideally located for visits to Durham, York Edinburgh, to the Borders and to the Lake District.
We are a 5 minute drive from the beach, 10 minutes from the ferry and 15 to 20 minutes from Newcastle city centre and the airport. The Metro is a 5 minute walk from our house and also provides a cost effective, quick and reliable means of transport. We are surrounded by the beautiful countryside and scenery of the Counties of Durham and Northumberland, as well as by beautiful and scenic coast and unspoilt beaches stretching right up to bonnie Scotland.
English for Your Needs
We provide bed and breakfast, up to 3 hours of intensive English or Frnech and German tutoring daily, personalised to meet your needs.
You will have your own bedroom and a shared guest bathroom in our beautiful, comfortable town house that dates back to the 1880s.
You will have the opportunity to be immersed in local life, meeting our friends and family. We also have a gentle, well-behaved dog called Dollar. If you wish you are welcome to come out walking with us.
A Cultural Programme for You
We would also like to offer you opportunities to enjoy the culture, geography, history and traditions of the area and of the United Kingdom.
We can offer you a wide range of artistic, cultural and sporting performances from music, dance and theatre to visits to art galleries and historical sites.
We are very fortunate to have national and international performers coming to our world famous arts and sporting venues such as the Sage Gateshead, The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and the Metro Radio Arena, to name but a few. We can book tickets in advance for you, if you wish.
