Blogger Stephanie Fox makes the most of Newcastle’s Quayside with Dream Apartments

Newcastle travel Blogger Stephanie Fox reviews Dream Apartments Aerial house!

‘For ages I’ve dreamed of living up on Newcastle’s quayside, with a view of the bridges I’d never get tired of, some of the best local pubs a stone throw away, and with any number of restaurants and city centre perks at my fingertips. I was recently offered a stay in a Quayside apartment with Dream Apartments, the fully serviced apartment company that offer luxury apartments in multiple cities across the UK and Europe. They have two locations in Newcastle, and just over a week ago we stayed in a lovely two bedroom apartment at Aerial House on City Road’

Stephanie’s blog is filled with top travel tips and destinations!

‘This quayside spot is one of my favourites in the city, and the reception staff didn’t fail to deliver a typical Geordie welcome (even though she was from Liverpool!). I was given the keys and went straight up to the fourth floor. The apartment was gorgeous, and felt really homely with bouncy carpets, big double beds and a decent sized open plan kitchen, dining and living area. I’ve stayed in some city apartments for girls weekends away and some can be a bit tacky, or a bit superficially furnished but this definitely didn’t feel like that’
