Rachael Morley lives in Leeds where she runs Pacific Ridley, a business that designs and sells sustainable, eco-friendly products. She and her daughter Jessica, who has special needs, recently stayed at Village Newcastle.
Big, comfy public spaces
“A few of my old university friends live in and around Newcastle, and I often visit to catch up with them. We know the city pretty well by now, but there’s always something new to discover, or some kind of event on. Jessica and I like to visit the Quayside, or we’ll go to one of the nearby beaches at Longsands or Whitley Bay. There’s a great nature reserve right in front of the hotel, too.
One thing I really love about Village is the big, comfortable public spaces where I can meet my friends, or just chill out and read a book. In some other hotels I feel like I’m stuck in my room, but at Village you can treat the place like your own home, and just relax. I’m a member of the Village gym at home in Leeds, and we love the pool at Newcastle.
“The staff at Village Newcastle are just great. My daughter has special needs and they’re so kind, patient and helpful. That really does make all the difference.”
Plenty of fun things to do in Newcastle
Legendary nightlife, fantastic shopping and world-class sporting venues are what most of us think of when we hear the word ‘Newcastle’ - but there’s a quieter side, and Village Newcastle is perfectly placed for you to enjoy both.
We’re next to a lovely Country Park and close to beaches at Whitley Bay and Longsands, and if you don’t fancy the short drive into the city you can catch the Metro from the Northumberland Park stop. Of course, inside Village Newcastle there’s the gym and pool to enjoy, as well as a great pub and an Italian restaurant - or just the big flat screen TV and Tassimo coffee machine in your Club Room!
