We stayed at Sandsides when visiting relatives in the area and were not disappointed. Barbara and Alan were so welcoming that we felt at home straight away. The room was well appointed with a big TV and comfortable bed, and the en suite bathroom was fresh and clean. In fact the whole place was spotless! And Alan's breakfast was delicious.... More

They welcomed us friendly, and we stayed with them for 2 nights, which we didn't regret. The room was very clean (modern ensuite facilities), the... More

We booked this Guest House as we couldn't get a room for love nor money in Newcastle for the match, and are so glad we did! We didn't get to meet Barbara but Alan was so welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean and the breakfast was just right. We're planning on a few trips to see Newcastle United... More

Returned for a second stay at this very homely guest house and was welcomed as a long lost friend by the owners Alan and Barbara. I received the same personal attention and was very satisfied with the cleanliness of the house and the brilliant breakfast. I will be back! Syd H.

Lovely place to stay, beds very comfy, whole place lovely and clean. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was great with a good variety. There is a beach within a 5 minute walk away and is very clean and tidy. There are also plenty of shops nearby.
