The Cumberland Arms, built around 1860, looks over the Ouseburn Valley, an 18th century hive of industrial activity, now home to a multitude of art studios, music venues and the world famous Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children’s books. The pub is only fifteen minutes walk from the city centre, where you can explore Newcastle’s theatres, restaurants, parks and shopping or take a walk down to the Quayside to experience the Baltic, Centre for Contemporary Art, The Sage Gateshead and views of the seven bridges across the Tyne. As well as being easily placed to get out to see what the city has to offer we’re also a haven to return to with our open fires, real ale and cider. With our impromptu folk sessions, comedy, bands, poetry and more in the upstairs venue, you could just choose to settle in and enjoy. The bed and breakfast has four rooms with super kingsize beds and ensuite shower room. They can also be made into a twin room on request. Each enjoys beautiful views across the Ouseburn valley.
