We had a lovely stay in the apartment attached to Sandra's home. It was clean and comfortable and great for our family's needs. The breakfast items and welcome drink and biscuits were very much appreciated, and the apartment had many appliances which helped in making meals for our kids. We would definitely recommend this place to others planning to stay in the Newcastle/Stockton area.

Sandra’s place was a perfect place to stay for my house hunting trip. It was comfortable, nicely decorated, and very private. Sandra was an excellent host and I would definitely consider staying there again.

Sandra is a great host and this is a special little place. We did not want to leave - great view and with everything you need for a get away. Sandra's special touches, like the home made mulberry jam left on our doorstep (YUM), just added to this.

Lovely tastefully designed space, small but very functional, very clean, lovely special touches of fresh fruit platter, a beer and a small bottle of wine, which is a lovely surprise for weary travelers, a great view, pretty courtyard to enjoy dinner overlooking the river and a great green space to exercise your four legged friend!

Sandra personally welcomed us to her home and provided us with a tour and all the assistance we needed. The home had a stocked fridge full of staples and breakfast. It is also very peaceful and quiet. I personally felt quite at home at Sandra's and I would definitely visit again if I am ever around. Thank you.
