“compact and luxurious, with coastal beauty and city cool.”


Living space. Thinking Space. Relaxing space.

Whilst modest in size, this compact retreat has been well thought out, creating a true sense of space in luxurious surroundings.

Whether you’re looking for a dynamic base to explore the beautiful beaches and stunning coastlines of Northumberland, visit the city of Newcastle, or just somewhere simply to hunker down for some R&R and time out from the world.

Welcome to The Basement.


The Basement once functioned as the butlers quarters of a grade II listed Georgian home which was built on the remains of the original St Oswins church, since being rebuilt after the war.

Now 200 years on, ‘The Basement’ redefines coastal living creating a truly unique boutique retreat hideaway for two.
