About Marylou Booth
Hello browsers and guests I'm a staff and management trainer, and lover of both Newcastle and the Lake District. My husband and I both went to university in Newcastle and know the city well, so just ask if you need help or recommendations. I like to kid myself that I'm an international traveller but I actually do most of my travelling looking at guide books on my comfy settee. Nowhere else seems as good as Newcastle and The Lake District but I'm happy to admit that I'm probably biased! We love pubs, bars, restaurants, walking, watching thrillers, reading, podcasts and hanging around with our grown up children. Ask anything. I'm here to help. Marylou x

This really is one of the best locations in Newcastle with some of the best views and this lovely apartment is south facing.

The most unique aspects of this apartment are its roof garden and outstanding views of the river and bridges

Excellent communication from MaryLou throughout. She made us feel very welcome and well prepared for our visit. There were lots of little touches which meant a lot too, including the handy guide to the workings of everything in the apartment.
The apartment itself is fantastic. Beautifully decorated with tons of personality. It was immaculately clean and well appointed. Extremely comfortable beds! The views over the river were lovely and the location is so handy. Easy to park outside and a well kept stairwell and friendly neighbourhood.
This is a fantastic apartment at a very reasonable rate. We will definitely return. Thank you MaryLou.
Just Perfect in every way.
Clean,spacious and bright with wonderful views of the river. The roof garden was a real bonus and we enjoyed relaxing there every day. From the sofa at night we could watch the The Tilting Bridge's light display ....not to be missed. The apartment was clean and tidy and very well appointed. It had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms were large and clean. We have stayed in Newcastle several times, this apartment is the best and the one we shall be returning to. Marylou, the owner could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Thank you for letting us share your lovely home.
Thanks for your lovely comments.
I’m so glad you had a lovely time. Do stay with us again.
Location, location, location PLUS
Great location for access to lots of Newcastle/Gateshead attractions and looking directly over the River Tyne and it's iconic bridges. Lovely clean apartment with fully equipped kitchen, decorated with contemporary art, full of lovely furniture, with two comfortable double beds; and did we mention the view! Friendly and communicative owner. TWO parking spaces; walking distance to plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants, and galleries and handy for the bus and metro services. Recommended.
Thanks Mike for your lovely comments. You and your family were really thoughtful guests.
I’m glad you liked the art and furniture. I think we’re one of very few Quayside apartments with two parking spaces.
Do stay again.
Newcastle is known the world over as the North East's cultural, shopping and dining capital. The famous Quayside area is the perfect place for fine dining, bars, cafes and culture, courtesy of The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, The Sage Gateshead, and The Millennium Bridge joining the two banks. Also don't forget the local Sunday market.
Walk the other way and you're in the Ouseburn Valley with its funky vibe, cafes and bars.
Home to the annual Tall Ships Race every summer, Newcastle Quayside is a thriving and interesting area with magnificent architecture both old and new.
The city has great shopping and arts facilities, as well as museums and art galleries.
The Theatre Royal is a stunning building with many interesting theatrical productions, ballets, operas and pantomimes at Christmas.
The historical background of Newcastle marks it as one of the most important cities in the UK. Once a Roman garrison town it was the site of a fortress and to this day has parts of Hadrian's Wall still evident through the city centre. Starting from Wallsend, Hadrian's Wall sweeps across the landscape to the west coast.
World-class culture, vibrant nightlife, award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture are all linked here! So many wonderful places to enjoy City, Countryside and Coast!
Whitley Bay and Tyneside seasides are lovely and easy to get to on the metro if you haven't got your car.
You're not far from the A1, which will take you further north to Alnwick and the Heritage Coast, where a day can be spent exploring the many historic castles and friendly villages set amongst unspoilt golden sandy beaches. Not too far away is the Metro Centre - one of the largest shopping centres in Europe with an abundance of shops and eateries. For cricket fans, Durham County Cricket Club's ground, 'The Riverside', is a short drive away at Chester-le-Street.
The North East is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts, nature and wildlife lovers and those who enjoy sports. You can do everything from dry slope skiing, quad biking and gliding, to angling, sea fishing, sailing, golf, tennis, cycling, walking, pony trekking, horse riding and diving. In fact there is so much to do, you'll need to stay quite a while to enjoy it all!
Newcastle has the only tube system in England apart from London's underground. Public transport including the Metro underground system give you access to our beautiful countryside and coastline.
Bars and restaurants of the Quayside are a five minute stroll. Newcastle city centre itself starts 15 minute walk away at The Tyne Bridge. We rarely use our car locally.
For travelers wishing to fly to Newcastle upon Tyne, use the Newcastle Airport (NCL). Those who prefer rail travel can arrive to Newcastle Central Station which is served by three major operators: East Coast, Transpennine Express and Cross Country Trains.
