Best of both worlds The latest review of the Farm House Bed and Breakfast “A lovely B&B located only 7miles away from Newcastle city centre. So quiet and peaceful yet only a 10-15 min taxi ride into the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Lovely owners too that do a good breakfast!” This was nice to read over lunch time https://via.eviivo.com/en-GB/riding_ne110ja
