THIS SUMPTUOUS two-bedroom duplex apartment offers a luxurious living space 10 minutes (2 miles) from Newcastle city centre. Old meets new in this Victorian terraced building - the heritage of this century-old Tyneside flat has been lovingly recreated, but with a modern twist. Our apartment, named Docker's Digs, has been designed and decorated in a boutique style, to offer all home comforts, and to reflect the proud industrial heritage of the North East. We have completed a sympathetic restoration of this Victorian building, with traditional wallpaper and revitalised heritage furniture coupled with unique hand-made pieces and samples of modern art from the nearby Baltic Arts Centre. We provide luxury mattresses and towels and Egyptian cotton white bed linen.

Old meets new in this Victorian terraced building - the heritage of this century-old Tyneside flat has been lovingly recreated, but with a modern twist. Our apartment, named Docker's Digs, has been designed and decorated in a boutique style, to offer all home comforts, and to reflect the proud industrial heritage of the North East. We have completed a sympathetic restoration of this Victorian building, with traditional wallpaper and revitalised heritage furniture coupled with unique hand-made pieces and samples of modern art from the nearby Baltic Arts Centre. We provide luxury mattresses and towels and Egyptian cotton white bed linen. We want every minute of your stay to be in a memorable and comfortable apartment. You will be provided with fresh towels, two pillows for each bed (firm and soft) and there is a private sink and mirror in both bedrooms. Hairdryer, iron, ironing board and vacuum cleaner are also provided. There is a large double bedroom, a spacious twin room, a large attic living room with electric stove, a small kitchenette (with grill microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle and sink) and a fully-tiled bathroom with large walk-in shower. 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. Fast cable wifi is free of charge and our Smart TV provides instant access to all catch-up services. There are USB sockets in the kitchen, record player (with a small selection of vinyl!), radio, CD player and docking/charging station for your iphone or ipod. All bills are covered and there is instant hot water in our shower enclosure. We have spent a great deal of time and care to provide a comfortable home-from-home, close to all the amenities that Tyneside has to offer. Please respect this, and 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.More

Great to have the extra space as we are a film company and have quite a lot of kit. The place was very nice, neat, and everything was smooth from check in to check out. Many Thanks, Ben.

Stayed at Dockers Digs in March 2017. Located just inside of Gateshead and very close to Newcastle. Rooms are very comfortable, clean and all a decent size. Dylan was excellent, we had no problems and would recommend and would stay again.
