The Magpie's Nest

The Magpie's Nest is a beautiful old house set in a terraced row of bed and breakfasts (B&B) and guesthouses in South Shields, South Tyneside, and is owned by Steve and Jan Phillips, who have just recently bought the property. They instantly fell in love with the character of this charming old house but did not want it to be yet just another guesthouse with frilled duvets, floral curtains, clashing carpets and bad taste floral arrangements. The accommodation is modern with simple bare walls, tasteful prints, pristine bed linens and superior fittings in all the en-suite rooms.

The rooms all have a standard look. Creams and reds, which give this B&B a homely but spacious feel. Private en-suite facilities with power showers, Sky/TV/Video including Sky Premiership and Sky Movie Channels. Hairdryers and irons are available and all the rooms have tea-making facilities.
