The place was excellent, overall great stay! Very remote but we kind of expected that.. lovely little touches such as games etc. Hot tub was great. Beds were comfy and clean. It was a fab stay! Would definitely recommend:)



Nice place, best with a larger group of people. Nice and clean, fantastic hosts.



Absolutely beautiful property, such an incredible price for what you get, stunning rooms, a bathroom with each room, stunning views and just beautiful property all round. <br/>John was incredibly helpful throughout the stay, gave us fresh eggs and was very kind when dealing with us.<br/>I don't think I could think of any bad points worth mentioning.



We originally had the gathering booked Friday to Monday but were notified of the availability of the Wednesday and Thursday so we took the opportunity to check in a night early! Made all the difference extending the weekend, a beautiful property, clean with comfy beds! Everything needed was provided, even fresh eggs from the chickens! Close to the city but far enough away to feel remote! Definitely recommended!



The Gathering is a fantastic place to stay. The building has clearly been converted to a high standard, it is well designed, beautifully finished and presented with lovely views over the countryside. I would be very happy staying here again! I felt it was good value for money and it was in peaceful surroundings which is exactly what I'd hoped for.



this place is amazing! the host comes with our highest recommendation. it's only once you're actually there that you get a true sense of the scale of this place, the standard of finish, calculation and level of attention to detail given to the decor and setting. everything here, at first seemingly simple, presents itself in lingering retrospect as an understated statement piece.<br/> the price - so competitive.<br/> I think this amongst the most accessible, value-added and satisfying properties you could stay in that are available to this standard and in this area on air b'n'b<br/>thankyou so much and we are hoping to return again in the future.



We loved the hot tub, the open plan kitchen/living room/dinner. The main bedroom was gorgeous<br/>The bi-fold external doors had an issue closing. We'd suggest possibly including bath robes for guests using the outdoor jacuzzi.






Beautifully decorated, amazing views from Hot tub. Comfy beds. Will definitely book again.



The hosts were very helpful and friendly. The house is in a very quiet location but only 20 minutes from Ponteland, It had been beautifully decorated for Christmas, which was an unexpected bonus.



Such an amazing stay! The host was very responsive and accommodating. The place was clean and had high-rise windows to allow lots of natural light in during the daytime. The hot tub was in immaculate condition with stunning views of the countryside!



Hot tub, beautiful views, spacious accommodation



Lovely place and views. Easy and simple check in with a key pad lock outside the house. Friendly owners and also a good price for the time of year we went!



My friends and I hired both properties for a girly weekend away. The properties are absolutely stunning, there is an adjoining door that connects both properties making it feel like one huge property. <br/>They are perfect for a larger get together and plenty of space. <br/>The location is remote and very peaceful. Ponteland is only a 20 minute drive away which was perfect for us to visit for Christmas lunch and drinks. Taxis are easier to get from here too.<br/>The owners live on the farm in a nearby property we found this very reassuring and John came over to help us with an enquiry we had and he checked on the hot tubs too. <br/>Hot tubs are a perfect addition. <br/>The properties are large and spacious and very clean. The owners really have thought of everything.<br/>We will definitely be returning.<br/>There isn’t anything I disliked about the property. Maybe instructions on how to use the hot tub would be useful.



Beautiful holiday let. very comfortable and stunning views. only 2 niggles.... the downstairs bathroom had a strong unpleasant smell and the upstairs shower was tepid and we couldn't control the temperature. however, this didn't ruin the weekend for us and we enjoyed our stay



Just back home from a 3 nights stay at John & Lynda’s place. The house is massive and feels even more spacious that what it looked like in the pictures. <br/>The location is very private and the hosts were very helpful. <br/>Minor issue on the first day with the plug in the bathroom sink that was broken but this was fixed by John the following morning. <br/>We would book again. <br/>Worth it for the space, views and of course the hot tub.



Beautiful place, amazing decor & very tranquil. Host made sure we were ok on our first night and dropped off fresh eggs which were very welcome. A bottle of prosecco was waiting for us also which was a lovely gesture, table was all beautifully set for our first meal. <br/>Plenty of tea/coffee/some milk sachets, detergents and additional shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the bathrooms.<br/>Hot tub was great.Would highly recommend this place, it does feel very special. I'll drfinitely stay here again



A beautiful trip away & we couldn’t have asked for more. Such a peaceful place to relax and it really felt like a home away from home.



Gorgeous house and location. Fresh eggs in the morning was lovely. Very happy will be returning.



We had the most wonderful stay at The Gathering. The house is absolutely stunning (exactly like the pictures!), the hot tub was very clean and always warm. Absolutely could not fault it whatsoever! Lynne and John were also both lovely, very friendly people who despite living next door respected our privacy and left us to it. Thank you so much for a brilliant stay, we will 100% be back (maybe next time we’ll book The Parlour, too!)



We had a lovely time, the air bnb is absolutely beautiful and the hot tub just makes the stay.



We had the best few days here. Hosts were absolutely on hand if we needed anything. Lovely treat of Prosecco and snacks on arrival. <br/>House is stunning and looked exactly like the pictures. <br/>Was sad to check out!<br/>Thank you and we’d definitely recommend!



We spent an amazing 5 days at "The Gathering", our hosts Lynn and John (Oscar the dog) are an amazing couple with a beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for anything better. We will seriously consider returning with our parents next year utilising the joint building (The Parlour). Thank you again for a perfect stay



A lovely weekend! Thank you so much to the owners who couldn’t have been more helpful. <br/>The house itself is absolutely beautiful, stunning views and really well decorated. It’s a huge space for 4 people. Beds were super comfy and we had a great night sleep. Hot tub was brilliant. Would defo recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing weekend away.<br/>Well stocked generally although cleaning spray and some more dishwasher tablets would have been really helpful. Also, we found some of the cooking equipment was a bit limited - only a small frying pan etc. Very minor though issue though. <br/>Thank you so much for a lovely stay.



Absolutely lovely property and the hosts couldn’t have been more accommodating. Would definitely return!



We had a great week at The Gathering. The location is fabulous and the house is beautiful, just like the pictures.



Clean, huge, very comfortable furniture, 3 en suites. Warm. Host welcomed us. Quiet. Far reaching view from bedrooms.<br/>Understand there is probably a need for a damage deposit, however, having to pay £10 admin fee for that damage deposit, for less than 48 hours in property was not good. Far too many emails asking me to pay this damage deposit. Another saucepan (a big one) would have been useful - 2 medium pans in accommodation for 6 isn't really enough. However, I didn't ask for another pan and one may well have been provided if I had asked.



All bedrooms double & ensuite & very comfortable..Very spacious. Nice área for days out.<br/>Hot tub.<br/>Plenty of plates, cups etc.<br/>Great for socialising with family or friends.<br/>Very friendly & helpful owners.<br/>A complementry bottle of fizz & milk was a nice touch.<br/>Unfortunately not as clean as I would expect, window sill in bedroom very dirty & cobwebs, surface of the chest of drawers was covered in make up which was easily removed. Wall of bathroom had toothpaste splattered down it. Floors could have been cleaner. <br/>There was no coffee machine, although there was supposed to be one.<br/>A large saucepan would have been useful when cooking for 6 people, & a potato peeler.



3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms!<br/>10am checkout time, too early!



Everything was perfect



I stayed at this air bnb with my boyfriend and firstly would like to say that it is STUNNING, we travelled over 6 hours there and were not disappointed. The home is clean, the space is vast, the decor is top tier and the VIEW from the bedroom is unlike anything I have ever seen before. It is tranquil, calm, and the people who stay there are lovely too! All in all it is an absolute pleasure there and was a great experience.<br/>My only slight disappointment was the internet, it didn't work from the moment we arrived which made sorting out plans quite difficult. We did call both numbers that were given, left a text message and contacted host and stay, who did respond back with a generic response but never actually got back to us with a resolution. This did leave us without any form of internet for the whole duration of our stay which for the money paid I don't think is unacceptable.



A lovely place, with a hottub. Great things, much space, great beds, lots of towels, lookout over the fields, fresh eggs delivered on our doorstep, friendly owner. When you pay this amount you expect evertything to be perfect. Based on that expectation, we have the following things that could receive more attention: wifi didn’t work, the house was not clean everywhere toothbrush holders had toothpaste, refrigerator had staints, in drawers there were hairs of former visitors.



It was clean, very spacious and comfortable.



A relaxing place for a few days with friends.



We really enjoyed our stay with John and Lynne. Really friendly. The house was lovely - open plan and exactly as the photos showed it. The main bedroom is amazing with wonderful views.



Location, space and cleanliness of the property <br/>Friendly owners and good communication <br/>Very comfortable



A wonderful place in a wonderful setting <br/>Hard pressed to find better



We really enjoyed our stay. Fresh eggs were greatly appreciated and the house and surroundings are just beautiful. Utter peace and privacy. Thank you!



stayed for 4 nights, place was great to relax, but close enough if you wanted venture out. the kids loved the hot tub and the land to run about. <br/>would definitely recommend



Had a lovely stay here! Beautiful accommodation and very helpful and friendly hosts! Even brought us fresh eggs one morning. <br/>The only issue we had was there were a lot of flies around and we had to spend a lot of time trying to get rid of them. The owners knew about this as had a fly catching device on but we were not told about it and did not have much to get rid of them with apart from a half empty bottle of fly spray. <br/>Apart from that the stay was brilliant!



Lovely house, lovely surroundings, Lynne was a pleasure to seal with.



Fabulous weekend away with friends, the view is outstanding and the hot tub very relaxing. The property itself is stunning, as one of my friends said it was like walking into a different world. All the amenities you could ask for. For a touch of luxury and a relaxing weekend away we couldn’t have asked for anything better.



I looked at quite a few different options before booking this property and it was beautiful and perfect for us.<br/>But it was one of the most expensive cleaning charges and it was anything but clean and this is what stood out and sticks in your mind



Lovely house, great location just amazing



Positives <br/>-Beautiful location and the building has been refurbished to a very good standard. Incredible views out to the remoteness of the fields. <br/>/Some thoughtful touches on arrival (eg Prosecco) and eggs for which many thanks <br/>Negatives <br/>-The management company managing the building were generally pretty unhelpful. <br/>We had requested upon booking for a king bed as outlined in the Airbnb listing but sadly got two singles which was only sorted out on the penultimate night. For the price we paid, this should have been sorted much sooner<br/>- Significant lack of cleaning products. We had one dishwasher tablet for four nights and no surface sprays which made it difficult to keep it clean. The floors were also quite dirty upon arrival and rubbish had been left in the kitchen from previous guests.



The Gathering was a beautiful place to get away to. It's well decorated, spacious and immaculately tidy. The host was very welcoming and although they lived next door they were not intrusive. <br/>Just note that it is quite remote so you will need to drive some distance for local amenities but dont let this detract from this gem in the countryside.



Well what can we say about this beautiful home that’s not steady been said but here goes:-<br/><br/>Super comfortable <br/>Stunning views <br/>Great hot tub<br/>Everything you need<br/>Nothing too much trouble <br/>We have never slept in such a comfortable bed ever & I will be contacting Lynne to find out more details <br/>Thank you again for a lovely stay & we will be back, & shout it from the rooftops how lovely this is.



Beautiful house in a great location with a lovely garden and views



Une très belle pièce à vivre (beau volume et hauteur sous plafond) et une grande chambre parentale très confortable. Le jacuzzi est vraiment très grand et de bonne qualité. Je recommande a ceux qui souhaitent se reposer à la campagne.






a beautiful property in a fantastic location. beautifully decorated and well furnished. we had an amazing stay. definitely will be back.<br/>nothing






Great place to stay for a little break! Had everything we needed and wonderful settings



Beautiful accommodation and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks to John (the owner) for making us feel so welcome. Recommend the blackbird inn for a bite to eat and a pint.



beautiful spacious and clean<br/>where the jacuzzi was could of been a bit more landscaped



Great accommodation and location. The hosts popped over to introduce themselves and were on hand to help with any questions



Fabulous, relaxing surroundings and the house is everything on the photos and more! <br/>We had everything we needed and clear instructions for when we arrived. <br/>House was clean, fresh and we had been left a lovely welcome gift for our arrival. <br/>Would highly recommend



Very nice place and very peaceful and very clean. Would recommend to anyone



Superb find, exceeded our expectations, a home from home feel. Great hosts, nice bottle of fizz on arrival - thank you!<br/>The main bedroom was amazing, with a bath in the room placed perfectly for viewing the surroundings. <br/>Overall a perfect few days, highly recommended, will definitely be our go to place for future visits to the area.



Wonderful weekend away. The place was beautiful. Clean, comfortable and lovely views! <br/>Really good communication with the host and all amenities you would need.<br/>We used as a base to visit some of the amazing places around, such as Beamish, Newcastle, Cragside and Warkworth.<br/>I would definitely stay here again!



Stunning getaway, very nicely furnished and had a lovely time. Would recommend if your wanting a getaway that is in the country and your just wanting to relax. With the money we paid and how nice the property is we didn’t mind spending a lot of our holiday inside the house



Lovely stay at The Gathering with our children 12, 11 and 1 in February 2023. Really nicely appointed accommodation with everything you could need! John and Lynne the owners were very happy to help, and brought us a highchair over for our little one. If travelling with a baby you will need to bring your own travel cot. Would definitely recommend!!



This is a beautiful property, that is furnished and equipped to the highest of standards. The photos are accurate but the sense of space feels even bigger! Little touches everywhere and the friendly host made for a lovely relaxing stay. Definitely one to recommend! Thank you.



We had the BEST time at the gathering! The house itself was stunning, spotless and just a wonderful place to spend a long weekend. The hot tub alone was a wonderful amenity but on top of that the view whilst using it was spectacular! Lynne was so lovely and friendly! We just loved it, we hope to come back soon! ?



Wow! Absolutely stunning and spacious accommodation. The photos do not do the place justice. <br/>Spotlessly clean with everything you could need and set in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. <br/>Perfect for a super relaxing break. <br/>We didn’t want to leave and hope to visit again soon.



Everything!!! stunning views and stunning decor with gorgeous hosts. Thank you!






The agents to this house are not very professional however the host of the house are lovely and go out their way to make your stay very special. The house is amazing and I would recommend this house.



Lovely long weekend break in a peaceful setting. Hot tub an added bonus too. Comfortable and well equipped accommodation with friendly hosts.



Beautiful accommodation with heaps of activities on the doorstep (Michelin star Pine restaurant, Matfen Hall Spa and Golf, Go Ape, paintball, etc) and Newcastle-upon-Tyne is only 30 mins drive, if you can bring yourself to leave these beautiful surroundings.<br/><br/>Really friendly and responsive hosts.<br/><br/>Can't recommend this place enough. Will definitely return.






+ Very nice, spacious property (looks just like the pictures)<br/>+ Lovely, comfortable stay<br/>+ Very comfortable furniture and beds<br/>+ Towels, toiletries, dishes, cookware provided<br/>+ Large hot tub<br/>+ Close to enough for a short drive to local cafe/deli and bar in Matfen<br/>+ Only about 20 min drive from supermarkets etc in Hexham <br/><br/>- A little bit far out if you want shops/pubs within walking distance<br/>- There was an additional fee (or large deposit) required to cover for accidental damage which is not mentioned before you book - it would have been better if this was included with the initial fees or, at least, mentioned in advance



beautifully furnished.. spacious n luxurious. clean and the Xmas tree was an additional bonus. like that it’s tucked away in peace and quiet but only 15 drive if want to get some action. landlord stayed behind us and they were very responsive when we encounter any problem. They made the effort of walking over to pass us some cooking items we forgot to bring and gave us fresh eggs from their chicken on check in date and the following day too when we asked. Due to some filming on the property, owner has reached out to house us in the other property for the first night which is very beautiful too and has offered 200£ as compensation for the inconvenience. Everything worked well, now waiting for the compensation to be transferred.<br/>Nothing



What a beautiful property in a really peaceful location. Loved the size of the open plan living area. We will definitely come back.



spacious and good location <br/>all bedrooms have en suite<br/>it was a very cold weekend and we needed extra heaters



beautiful and clean, hosts have thought of most things you will need, and even bring you fresh eggs from the hens on the grounds. very spacious, very relaxing.<br/>the hot tub was not working, but this is not the fault of the owners. it was due to be fixed but the wrong part was brought.



Beautiful cottage. Really well equipped and very helpful hosts. Cottage gets 5*.<br/>We found host and stays security checks unexpected and unnerving. We recieved multiple texts from different phone numbers. These were clearly incomplete and unhelpful.



We really enjoyed our stay here and can see what a great property it would be to stay with friends or family. The hot tub was a big hit and we used it every night. The kitchen and appliances were great and the bed was comfy. Really great value for a great stay.



just about everything, both properties are stunning and it was absolutely perfect for some quality family time away. our hosts were great, very attentive and helped with anything we needed.<br/>the ONLY downside was that due to the location being on a farm there are a lot of pesky flies hovering around but there’s not a great deal can be done to prevent that.



Excellent hosts



The couple who stay next to the property were lovely, place and location was fantastic with a half an hour drive to Newcastle, Place was nice until the last day, electric kept tripping and we rang the number on the messages and the service received was very bad, women on the phone was very patronising and not helpful and advise it would take hours for maintenance to come out resulting in us having no electricity



what can we say!! it’s immaculate!!! top range facilities, everything you need and all beautiful!!! we already plan on booking again this week for next year!! it’s stunning!!!<br/>only 2 things would be on the parlour a hot tub cover maybe with a retractable roof so in the rain etc you can enjoy it a bit more and it deffo needs a light into the property and a sign as it’s a bit tricky to find in the dark and we ended up in a rather unpleasant farmers field!!



A truly gorgeous place to stay. Our family loved our stay here. There's not a soul to be seen from the view on the balcony and the hot tub. It was so relaxing and John was so thoughtful bringing us fresh hens eggs and making sure we were comfortable.



Very high standard and you find everything you need. Maybe missing a coffee pluncher.<br/>Location, fully understood that it was really but no walking paths in the area.



Very good



Great Location for a peaceful break. House is very well equipped with everything you will need. Kids loved the Hot Tub. Master bedroom has great views.



Perfect stay, pictures don’t to it justice it was out of this world! Can’t wait to stay again :)



Check in and property information all very efficient. Amazing property, well equipped and the welcome gift of fizz was a lovely surprise. John & Lynne are great hosts and if you like eggs, do ask for some as they have chickens on-site and they’re fab. The hot tub is great too. Tip - if you want the 2 single beds put together to make one larger bed, try and give a few days notice so the message can be passed through. Highly recommended!






Incredible place to stay! I would recommend to everyone, it’s just perfect. Amazing spaces to spread out in and the jacuzzi is the icing on the cake! The view is beautiful, the vibe is very luxurious. It was probably the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in too. I’ve never rated a bar stool so high before! Couldn’t fault it!!



Communications were good, I think a management company handles most of the correspondence. It was very easy to collect the key and 'check in'. The house is really big, light and spacious, with views of the stunning surrounding countryside. There is an excellent kitchen and we were given an arrival bottle of procecco. There are two bedrooms and a sofa bed, in the main living room. We took the main bedroom, with enuite and large balcony overlooking the countryside. The bed was very comfortable with quality bedding. They provided a wonderful hottub which we enjoyed throughout our stay and used it every day. <br/><br/>The house is joined to another property that can also be rented out, which is connected by a dividing door, so we did hear some of the other people at times. The garden area is also shared by the other house, however we rarely saw them as the house is designed that the outdoor area faces away and on the other side of the join. <br/><br/>The views of the countryside beyond are lovely. Lynn and John (owners) seemed lovely, and came to say hello and also brought some home laid eggs to eat. <br/><br/>Check out was a bit too early for my liking (10am) and it would have been nicer to be 11am or 12. <br/><br/>Overall though, it was a wonderful stay and I would reccomend checking this place out!






Beautiful house in beautiful countryside ? The house is attached to another property so not completely private as we had expected but this didn't cause any issues. Great views from the hot tub and only 1 hour walk to a lovely pub in Matfen!



The accommodation was lovely very spacious, clean and tidy. It met all of our needs.<br/>We didn't stay longer



Beautiful property, tucked out of the way. <br/>Spacious, clean and full of all of the mod cons.<br/>We had a day out to Bamburgh (hours drive) and Morpeth on the way home. Sat outside the pub on the way home that is 5 mins from the property (black bull or something similar) and that was really nice.<br/>Enjoyed a bit of luxury for a couple of days!



Lovely private & peaceful location, amazing property for a relaxing getaway. Property was even better than expected!!

Everything was perfect with the stay, easy check in and great location for a relaxing weekend



great house in quiet surroundings.



Fabulous house, fantastic hosts, exceeded our expectations, we will be staying again.



Magnificent property. Beautifully and lavishly furnished.






Other than an issue with the agency, which they sorted out to our satisfaction, this was perfect. <br/><br/>Unlike other places we've stayed, it looked exactly like it did in the pictures. There was everything you needed and there was loads of space. The hot tub was a nice touch and the view was amazing.<br/><br/>Would recommend.



Excellent location very quiet lovely surroundings and views. John was excellent and brought us some<br/>Fresh eggs , nice bottle of Prosecco on arrival.



Stunning property, hosts were friendly and helpful.



An amazing place to stay to explore Northumberland. We had an amazing time and will hopefully be back soon. <br/><br/>The pictures don’t do this place justice



We all really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful house, tastefully decorated, loved the hot tub, peaceful surroundings.The hosts were friendly and welcoming.... highly recommend a stay !



We have never had such a relaxing break. Everything about The Gathering was perfect, the photographs cannot do justice to the quality of the conversion and the facilities.<br/><br/>We shopped in Waitrose in Ponteland then parked the car at the house and totally chilled out, we went nowhere! The peace and tranquility, dark skies at night, absolute privacy and a lovely deep hot tub made for the most chilled out five days. We cooked everything from eggs Benedict to Tomahawk steaks in the amazing kitchen.<br/><br/>The master bedroom suite is simply stunning as is the decor throughout the house. We simply could not have been happier.<br/><br/>The hosts are delightful people who have thought of everything. We will definitely return to The Gathering, a little corner of paradise.



loved the luxurious setting in a tranquil area of Northumberland. the furnishings were to an extremely high standard that offered the comfort to enjoy your stay.<br/>liked everything it had to offer.

Ça?r? Charly


The only reason not to write a review would have been to keep this beautiful place as a secret place ? The house, the surroundings and the hosts Lynne and John, everything was fantastic. I have been to 5 star hotels on several continents but this house was certainly in the top 5. Every aspect from size to amenities to cleanliness was outstanding. I would like to thank Lynne and John again for their exceptional hospitality. I am already making plans to stay longer. It is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And to all e-car drivers: there is a working and reliable Type2 charger on site. Once again, thank you very much. Best regards



Fantastic accommodation, dont hesitate to book.



Perfect location for a luxurious Northumberland stay!<br/><br/>The views from the enormous hot tub, balcony and even the bath were truly spectacular and helped us to immediately relax in this peaceful setting. <br/><br/>The Gathering was perfectly kitted out with everything you could need for a brilliant getaway in a brand new building. <br/><br/>Communication, directions and support from the host was amazing throughout. It was a lovely touch to leave a letter, some milk, coffee pods and a bottle of Prosecco!<br/><br/>Thank you so much for letting us stay, we look forward to coming back again!



The most amazing luxurious place we have stayed, everything was spot on and the location and views are perfect. Great hosts, lovely touch with the prosecco, crisps and fresh eggs when we arrived



Lynne & John were great hosts and always made sure they were available to answer any questions. A handy welcome note was given telling us all about the surrounding area and good places to visit, eat and explore. <br/><br/>The balcony, spacious living, huge bed and especially the hot tub were a big treat and very enjoyable! <br/><br/>We look forward to visiting again someday, <br/><br/>Joe & lauren



This house is incredible, so much so we didn’t want to leave. Definitely would look to book again. <br/>We came for my birthday and had a nice relaxing trip , dinner and a dip in the tub followed by an evening in ponteland 15 minutes drive. <br/>Would highly recommend!



Spotless accommodation and better than advertised



This brand new accommodation is out of this world. Such a lot of thought has gone into every aspect of your stay. The location is great, the hot tub, bedroom, balcony - everything is perfect.



We had a the most amazing stay & i wish we could have stayed longer. The owners catered to every need and thought of everything and were always on hand if any help was needed very friendly and very helpful it was a pleasure meeting lynne and John. Absolutely stunning lodge, views, and area. Thank you so so much we had the best time and thank you for the champagne. Will be recommending absolutely

Home Truths

The Gathering is located in a small, private development so it's perfect if you're looking for a peaceful retreat in the countryside. However if you're looking for shops, restaurants and nightlife within walking distance, this property wouldn't be suitable.
