Its location makes it an ideal base for those wishing to explore the sights and sounds of the City of Newcastle, or excape the hurly burly to the coastal resorts of Whitley Bay, and Tynemouth with its pavement cafe culture.

It was lovely, cosy and warm. The bed was lovely. Afternoon tea when we arrived was very much appreciated. Mr C Wareing - 11th October 2019
An excellent cottage to simply unwind and relax in. It has all the important amenities to make your visit a pleasurable experience. It’s at home with nature all around you. The cottage has plenty of room for 2 people and is dog friendly so no need to leave your pet behind. Close to the city of Newcastle and the town of Whitley Bay so you can explore the countryside or beach. A great welcome and pack of essential supplies on arrival. We have visited for the last 2 years and hope to return next year. - 21st August 2018
My sister booked the Garden Room for a weekend break for me and my wife plus our dog Izzy, to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The afternoon tea and prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch and the owners could not have been more welcoming in person the following day. We absolutely loved the peace and quiet of the location alongside its nearness to the coast and city. The Garden Room itself was beautiful and the great weather meant that we could make full use of the outdoor facilities there. We didn't want to return home and plan to go back as soon as possible. Thank you Dorothy and William and thanks to Beth from Stay Northumbria who was so quick to return emails etc and made booking so easy. She was lovely to talk to on the phone. - 30th June 2018
We had a wonderful week exploring the North East, and the Garden Room formed and excellent base for our trip, the hosts were very helpful and greated us will a light tea as part of the welcome package, the cottage was very well equiped and spotless. We still have a number of places we want to visit in the area and are planning a return trip, and will probably look at staying again at the Garden Room. - 20th June 2018
We had the most happy and wonderful stay at the Garden Room - a beautiful hidden away gem in North Tyneside. The owners were absolutely delightful and very accommodating, helpful and extremely friendly. The Garden Room is wonderfully compact with everything you would need to make your stay most comfortable, and the most gorgeous garden too. I would strongly recommend this cottage. - 22nd May 2018
This is a lovely cottage with beautiful views. It is well eqipped and has some lovely finishing touches. The welcome pack including sandwiches, fresh fruit, cake and wine was very well received, thank you! - 19th April 2018
Thoroughly enjoyable week's stay in the Garden Room. Very well presented and comfortable property with leaflets - 8th October 2017
A delightful cottage in a beautiful peaceful setting. It was lovely to come back to in the evenings and breakfasts were made very pleasant sitting in the sunshine at the dining table. The garden was perfect - totally enclosed for our puppy and horses over the fence for me. Earsdon was a convenient place to see the southern half of the region. The kitchen is very compact with a convection microwave. More basic equipment would be useful for anyone wanting to cook especially dishes for the microwave. - 26th September 2017
On arriving at the Garden Room we were greeted by the owner who showed us around the property. She had also prepared us a welcome afternoon tea which was delicious and very much appreciated. It is in the most beautiful rural location and just a 5 minute drive from the wonderful Northumbrian coastline. The Garden Room is presented to a high standard which was both comfortable and stylish. The enclosed gardens front and back are simply a delight. Our dog's tail didn't stop wagging from the moment we arrived! Our only complaints, and they are very minor, are the size and facilities of the kitchen and bathroom. They were both a little on the small side - for example there was no where to stack wet plates etc when washing up. The loo did become blocked during our visit though the owner did repair it the day we reported it. The owner felt the blockage was due to an excessive use of paper and it was a little upsetting to feel we were being blamed. We are familiar with using a macerator toilet as my sister has one on her boat. Having said that guidance instructions, clearly visible, may be of help to people staying at the Garden Room in the future. On the whole we had a wonderful stay at this treasure of a property. The only thing that would stop us staying at The Garden Room again is the fact I have a progressive disability which means I'm increasingly stuck in a wheelchair. I would definitely use Stay Northumbria again. The customer service has been brilliant, both friendly and professional. - 5th September 2017
Great location for exploring Northumberland - 5th July 2017
My wife and I received a warm welcome from the owners. We were shown around the property and everything about it was better than we had imagined it would be. We had a welcome pack, which included cake. There was plenty of information about the local area and many places were easily accessible. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. A lovely place for 2 people to stay. Judith and Alan from South Derbyshire. - 14th June 2017
Ideal cottage for two, compact but everything you need is included. Generous welcome pack. Has its own private garden with numerous seating areas. Quiet area but within 10 minute drive of beautiful beaches and attractions. - 2nd October 2016
