Nothing beats a city break – exploring hidden gems and cultural hot spots by day, before seeing the other side of the city by night – though an overpriced hotel on a busy street can take the shine away. Why not go the extra mile and rent an Airbnb on your visit to Newcastle? Read on for a selection of Airbnbs to suit everyone’s taste and price range.

A dewy olive green adorns the walls of this cosy suburb home. Sleeping two guests, this modern studio contains the little perks of a hotel (everyone loves fresh towels and shampoo) but the peace and quiet of your own home. Despite its natural leafy decor, this suburban studio is just a short metro ride from the thrill of the city and close to local high streets.

City life has never felt more luxurious than this duplex penthouse suite. The exposed brickwork in the lounge juxtaposes the 13ft (4m) glass wall in the bathroom – marrying rustic with modern. You’ll find the double bed upstairs in a loft-style nook, complete with a magnificent view of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.
