Baltic Nest is not a soulless airbnb – you won’t find it listed on there. It belongs to blogger Nikki Garnett and her husband Mal who spend most of their time at their family home on the edge of The Lake District. Lovingly refurbished in 2021 as part of a project showcasing the skills of the John Lewis & Partner Home Design Service it’s a stylish urban escape, rented only to trusted friends, family and readers of Nikki’s blog Midlifechic.
Baltic Nest is a place for people who want to feel part of this vibrant city. A chic and yet homely base, it enables you to step straight into a stylish urban lifestyle. Walk out and live the Newcastle life – enjoy breakfast at The Baltic Gallery… lunch in arty Ouseburn… spend the afternoon shopping in the city centre… drop in for dinner in one of the many restaurants that lie at your feet… or simply stay in and enjoy watching life unfurl along the Quayside – you have a bird’s eye view after all.
Staying at Baltic Nest is a pleasure. Equipped to high city standards you’ll find large comfortable beds with crisp white sheets and fluffy towels. High spec appliances make the kitchen a pleasure to cook in. Superfast broadband and a widescreen TV equipped with Netflix and Amazon Prime mean that work and play are both easily achieved. A secure private parking space comes with your rental too. Every little touch has been included, all you have to do is kick off your shoes and make yourself at home.
