"Clean comfortable and homely with very clean good size beds - Stev very kind and helpful especially with luggage - have to unload on road as parking a short walk away - Well equipped with basics although cupboards rather cluttered (dishes far too big) with nowhere to put food other than fridge - could consider shelves in boiler cupboard for saucepans."
- Good locality to get easy access to coast - metro for Newcastle short walk (market held at station Sat/Sun) and surrounding area's - plenty of choice for eating out.
"We have a brilliant time"

"We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in a fabulous property."
The location couldn’t be better and Steve went above and beyond to welcome us, help us unload the car and answer any queries - A* service! The property is clean and comfortable with some lovely features. We have already recommended it to friends/ family and can’t wait to return ourselves.
"Lovely apartment - clean, spacious and well equipped."
It was good to be met by Steve, who helped with the luggage and showed us round the apartment. The apartment is roomy and comfortable, in a fantastic location on Front Street in the middle of the village. There are plenty of nice cafes, restaurants and bars within a couple of minutes walk - and some nice shops (if you like browsing don’t miss the weekend market at the metro station). There are two beautiful, clean and sandy blue flag beaches within 5 minutes walk which we really enjoyed with our granddaughter. On a couple of days the weather wasn’t brilliant (countrywide, not because it’s in the north!) but we had a good time at the aquarium (15 minutes walk), and at the pleasure park in South Shields.
"Sorry for the delay in writing A lovely place with generous hosts."
Great location. Very responsive to messages. Thank you for a wonderful experience
"Fabulous! This property is a winner!"
Right on Front St in beautiful Tynemouth. Our holiday here was absolutely amazing! The owner Steve is a wonderful person and so friendly and professional; no request is too much! From the moment we arrived, he helped my husband with the luggage, gave us a parking permit, gave us full details of the property; a wonderful welcome complete with a lovely bottle of Prosecco! The apartment is just lovely; the large windows at the back allow lots of sunlight and the view of the gardens and the castle and sea beyond are just heavenly! The apartment is bright and extremely clean; the kitchen is great and well equipped, everything you need to make a meal with all white goods, tableware and cutlery. The bathroom is a lovely size, very modern with lovely shower over bath! Lots of lovely towels provided. The living area has comfortable furniture and a great large tv, with lovely lighting for the evenings! The 2 bedrooms are lovely and large, the beds are very comfortable with lovely clean, fresh linens, really good quality. The bedrooms come complete with beautiful Georgian original shutters! Very charming! Everything was great and looking forward to returning to this wonderful property with the best owner! Thank you Steve for going the extra mile and making our visit fantastic!! We will be back! The location is exceptional, the beach is very close, and Front Street has several amazing restaurants and bars; charming gift shops and lovely cafes, spoilt for choice!
"Lovely, clean warm & cosy apartment in the centre of Tynemouth."
The property had everything you could possibly need. The beds were very clean & comfortable. The Prosecco was a lovely thought very welcome. Steve was brilliant nothing was too much trouble for him (even the guests who arrived early) .Highly recommended would definitely book again.
"We booked this apartment after reading all of the previous reviews and the advertised images."
And that's were fiction left and reality moved in. This apartment had not seen a good clean in a longtime my reason for saying this is we found a Metro ticket behind a movable piece of furniture dated December 2022 and that included the thick dust. Bedroom dresser was tatty with old matt paint and behind we found a coat hanger, packet of contact lenses and thick dust. Whilst moving the free standing mirror it decided to literally fall apart. Backing wallpaper coming away from the walls in most if not all rooms. Dust accumulation on all skirting boards, doors, tops and window frames, black mould on bedroom window frame. Kitchen area needs a serious deep clean starting with the floor coverings. We had to rewash all plates, cups and cutlery before we used them, microwave needs a good clean along with the wall tiles and refuse bin. Fire escape was cluttered with hoovers, laundry bags, boxes and racks and is an absolute death trap if there was a fire. All carpets are badly stained and worn with parts were the carpets have been lifted and not secured back down. Overall this apartment is tired and needs the owners full attention by putting his guests first and stop denying that there are serious problems within. The only positives are we had a clean comfortable bed, clean bed linen and towels.
After 34 extremely positive reviews I am disappointed to receive your feedback. I have always been commended for cleanliness. It has achieved 4.9/5 (98% ) for cleanliness. Additionally, the property has 4.8(96% ) in all categories spanning 6 years. It was very unfortunate that you decided not to respond to the texts I sent during your stay asking if everything was as expected and to drop me a text if you needed anything. This would have enabled me to come to the property during your stay and address any issues. You ignored these texts and chose to respond when you got home. By this time it was too late to rectify any issues you had. Most people understand that this is a Georgian Period property with character and such properties do have minor imperfections. For example original sash windows and shutters have a different finish to modern UPVC windows. I would urge you to read all of the positive reviews and reflect on whether this review is honest and fair in your opinion. I always strive to give the best quality standard of accommodation and service as possible. I will always act upon positive criticism and aim for the highest standards . Your review differs so comprehensively from hundreds of other texts/reviews/messages /phone-calls I have received I therefore feel that the compensation you have requested is unwarranted.

"Steve was great, met us at the flat, helped carry our stuff in and got us set up."
Lovely clean, quiet and bright apartment .Handily place for pubs and restaurants as well as walks along the sea or river tyne! Easy walk for station and buses to go further afield including Newcastle City Centre .The flat was warm cosy and well equipped with everything you could possibly need including really good beds . Looking forward to visiting again as it was just about perfect for what we needed
"Lovely property right in the middle of Tynemouth village, close to shops, restaurants and sights."
Owner is a wonderful person who will help with any difficulty or questions. Book it and enjoy yourself!
"A great stay!"
The beds were so comfy and we loved how big they and the bedrooms were. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and such a lovely touch adding the bottle of fizz and milk - thank you! Steve was also brilliant and it was so useful that he let us leave whenever we wanted on checkout day as he didn’t have anyone else arriving. This was so helpful and felt like we didn’t have to rush to leave which was lovely ☺️ For the price we paid we thought it was brilliant and really hope to stay for another long weekend next year again. The only things which perhaps could be improved are better wifi as we would definitely contemplate staying for longer if we would be able to work occasionally which would require stronger wifi as we struggled with that generally. And just a few areas having a lick of paint such as the shutters as these were a bit sticky and the paint came off when you tried to open and close them. Thank you for a great stay! We hope to be back!
"Sssshhhh don't tell everyone but this place is perfect."
Great host, lovely apartment and close to everything.
"Lovely welcome from Steve and nice welcome pack ."
Everything you need in the apartment and close to all pubs and restaurants around.
"As with previous visits to this property we had a lovely time and a very warm welcome from Steve on arrival."
Flat very clean/tidy and comfortable with lovely view out to sea from the back bay window. Lovely location only a short walk to a lovely beach, though can be a bit lively on Friday/Saturday nights.
"Very comfortable and conveniently situated apartment."
Tynemouth is an attractive and interesting town. Owner very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
"Lovely apartment with everything we needed."
Thoughtful and helpful host who was there to meet us and walked us through all controls etc (and parking etc). Particularly liked the lovely breakfast area with warm sun through the windows and views of the DFDS ferry coming (and going in the evening). All perfect for our stay.
"Great views across Tynemouth"
"Great host, views and local knowledge"
"Our stay at Tynemouth was fantastic."
The location was spot on with plenty of bars and shops right on the doorstep, a beach at the end of the street and a metro at the other end. The accomodation was beautiful and Steve is a wonderful host. We would love to come and stay here again!
"Lovatt apartments exceeded our expectations."
Clean, comfortable, and everything you’d need to have a great gone from home. Fantastic location with lots of really good places to eat and Erin and just a stones throw from a fantastic beach, Steve the owner is great and is always on hand if needed. Would def recommend.
"This was our 2nd stay at Lovatt House apartment and it was as good as the first time."
Great location to visit Northumberland and Newcastle. Apartment very well equipped and Steve very welcoming as a host. Would definitely recommend
"Comfortable well equipped apartment right in centre of tynemouth."
Lots of places to eat on the doorstep, a Co-op and the very well maintained beach! Steve very helpful. Metro and buses make exploring very easy
"We were meet by Steve, who gave us a parking permit and showed us where to park."
The flat is very well equipped and close to amenities, pubs and restaurants etc the only downside to this is it was rather noisy into the early hours! Tynemouth castle and priory were on the doorstep and very interesting, we were very well placed to visit Hadrian’s Wall, the beautiful coast, Holy island and much more. We had a enjoyable few days in a very lovely part of country, Steve was at the end of the phone if there were any problems, he was a very gracious host.
"This is my home town and was looking forward to the old atmosphere of Tynemouth over the period of our stay but with covid restrictions it was not the same."
Dont get me wrong. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and the stay. Steve the host was away but we met him late in the week and made us feel welcome. The accommodation was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. I would have no qualms recommending Lovatt House to anyone thinking of visiting the beautiful Northumberland coast and the surrounding area.
"The apartment was very well equipped and in a great location."
Steve was very friendly and helpful.
"A perfect find in a great coastal position."
Steve was very helpful and always on hand at the end of a phone if needed. The apartment was comfortable and clean and we would definitely stay again. Parking was easy with a residential pass provided by Steve.
"Having had our overseas trip curtailed due to Covid we decided to look at Sykes for a UK staycation."
Decided on Tynemouth and found this gem of a property on the website. The flat is ideally located on Front Street with pubs, bars and restaurants in close proximty. The Metro station is a few minutes walk away giving access to a wider area worth exploring. During our stay local restrictions were in place but it did not spoil our enjoyment. Steve our host was brilliant and made sure we had everything we needed and was on hand if we had any issues or queries. The flat itself was immaculate throughout and a welcome pack with a bottle of Prosecco greeted our arrival. We will definitely be back for more
"I had a great trip to Tynemouth."
The apartment was great - really comfortable, clean and cosy. It exceeded my expectations - often places don’t look quite as good as the photos in real life but Lovatt House really did. Steve was a great host.
"Fantastic apartment in the centre of Tynemouth."
Lovely sea views, spacious bedrooms, comfy living area. Steve the host was very helpful, he couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely return if we visit the area again.
"What a lovely flat, we loved it and wanted to stay longer."
Steve was so friendly and helpful, he could not do enough to assist. Tynemouth is a lovely base for a holiday.
"Lovatt House apartment is a superbly equipped accommodation ideally located in the centre of Tynemouth with its bars and restaurants and easy walking distance to the Metro station."
The apartment was very comfortable and clean with ample good quality towels and bedding. It was also well stocked with the mundane kitchen basics that are so often lacking in holiday lets such as washing-up liquid, bin bags, salt and pepper etc. A nice touch was the welcoming bottle of Prosecco and milk in the fridge left by the very helpful owner Steve who greeted us at the apartment to show us around rather than leaving a key in a keysafe.
"The location was perfect and the cottage was very comfortable."
It made for a very relaxing holiday. Thankyou
"Beautiful apartment in a stunning location, excellent comfortable furnishings and equipment."
Steve was very helpful 're accessing the property and parking, as the Mouth of Tyne Festival was starting on day of departure. Will definitely book this apartment again, close to many bars and restaurant, walking distance to beach and Tynemouth Priory .
"A lovely appointed apartment in the charming town of Tynemouth, spacious and extremely comfortable."
The appartment is minutes away from restuarants, bars, shops and the Metro. And Steve the owner could not of been more helpful. I would highly recommend.
"Steve, our host was very welcoming and solicitous throughout our stay."
The apartment was more than well-stocked and equipped. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The panoramic view from the bay window was outstanding. The beautiful beaches are just a couple of minutes walk away. The location was very central in a vibrant, friendly village,with parking just outside. Tynemouth is an unsung gem and the gateway to Northumbria. We are so glad we chose Lovatt House and would love to return. Metro station was 5 minutes away for travel into Newcastle.
"This is a lovely apartment, centrally located and a very short walk to the Metro Station, restaurants and shops."
It’s very peaceful in the living area with garden and sea views from the dining table. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay there again.
"A beautiful apartment in an equally beautiful location."
It felt like a home from home. The host was incredibly helpful and welcoming. I would recommend this apartment if you are looking to stay in the North East of England.
"Absolutely fabulous location with everything you could ask for,host was available and was very accommodating for changes to itinerary, definitely will be staying here again!"
"Fantastic apartment in a really great place, ready to explore all that the region has to offer."
