About Dylan Younger
I am your joint host at Docker’s Digs, along with my partner, Karen Bell. We are self-employed landlords and do-er up-ers. I am a former sports journalist - Karen is still a brilliant yoga teacher. We are in our mid-40s and now have two grown-up children. We are passionate about Newcastle and the North East, and corny as it sounds, passionate about property too. We have put our heart and soul into providing a lovely home-from-home at our two apartments - Coalminer's Cottage and Docker's Digs. We've stayed there ourselves and love it. We hope you do too - it's a convenient and comfortable base to explore and get the most out of this fantastic part of the world. We will leave you in peace to enjoy your stay - but help and advice is always on hand if you need it.
Dylan Younger purchased this apartment in 2016
Why Dylan Younger chose Gateshead
There is a large but cozy double attic bedroom with leather double bed on the top floor, a spacious twin room on the floor below, a gorgeous large attic living room with dormer window and a fully-tiled bathroom with walk-in shower cubicle. There is a small kitchenette area at one end of the open-plan living room. Here you will find sink, fridge, microwave (with integral grill), oven and kettle. Please note, however, that it is not a full working kitchen and there is no hob or oven. You are renting the entire apartment, and your privacy will be respected at all times. Full instructions on everything will be provided, but the owner is only a phone call away if needed.
What makes this apartment unique
FAST cable wifi is free of charge and our LG Smart TV provides instant access to all catch-up services. There is a electric fire, USB sockets in the kitchen area, for hipsters a 50s-style radio/CD/record player (with a few bits of vinyl to listen to) and (if you're more 21st Century) a docking/charging station for your iphone or ipod. All bills are covered and there is instant hot water provided by a condensing combi boiler. We have spent a lot of time time and care providing a comfortable home-from-home, close to all the amenities that Tyneside has to offer. Please respect this, and respect other homeowners in what is a residential area. This is not the apartment for you if you want to have loud parties late into the night.
