About the Homestay
We offer very comfortable and cozy single & double attic bedrooms with self-serve breakfast in a Victorian Tyneside terraced house in Heaton, within walking distance of Newcastle city centre and quayside. Tea/coffee making facilities, towels, shampoo, etc. all provided.
We expect our guests to be dog-friendly, although our dog doesn't go up to the attic or into guest bedrooms; she is shy but very friendly and likes attention!
Check-in time should be agreed after confirmation, but I'm usually available between 4-9pm. Check-out is before 11am.
When you confirm your booking, we'll send you a welcome pack with lots of details regarding transport and how best to get around, where to visit, etc. Most can be done on foot as we are quite central. If you have a particular area you need to get to, we're happy to find the best route for you.
Included will also be our invoice for the remaining rent. Half of which will be required 2-weeks before your date of arrival.

We’ll give you a front door key so you can come and go as you please. If we’re not around at the end of your stay, leave key on the kitchen table so we know the room’s vacated and ready for cleaning, and have a safe trip onwards.

A long weekend stay for 3 nights. Ema a great host. Stayed in the quirky attic bedroom with an amazing comfortable bed. Close to Heaton & Alexander parks, Jesmond Dene. Just outside the city centre but was close enough for me to walk to the start of the Great North Run and back after the finish as advised by Ema. She was right, the queues for the Metro were so long. Anything you want to know ask Ema, she’s so knowledgeable.
Ema is really an attentive guest. Children loved her and were very happy to talk about their daily adventure in Newcastle. It will stand a very nice memory for the three of us. Thank you again for everything.
Enjoyed our stay in this welcoming home...Thank You
Very friendly jst let you get on with what you went for. freedom of her home with respect
Nice play to stay and to rest! Ema is a very nice person! If i´ll return to Newcastle i would love to stay there again!
The stairs a little too steep and the advert should show a shower and not a bath because that's what guests use and its downstairs. I felt a little awkward having to ask to use a bath tub because I don't use a shower so I think guests should know before they book. Otherwise, Ema is a lovely guest and the bed was comfortable.
Lovely host. Very comfortable bed. Good breakfast facilities. Nice hot shower. And a cute dog.
What else do you need ?
Friendly, helpful host - warm, clean room - everything you need for a stay in Newcastle - close to city centre - highly recommend
Ema est très accueillante, toujours souriante et très gentille ! Le séjour a été super !
Nice family and nice attic bedroom. Nice one night stay.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile.
