Sandyford is a smaller area towards the north of Newcastle city centre. It’s a perfect area for groups who are looking to live as close as possible to the city centre, with slightly more affordable rents than some other areas of Newcastle. Sandyford is a well-established area for young professionals and students, so plenty of bars, restaurants and shops are scattered close by.
One advantage of living in Sandyford is the proximity to the city centre, Jesmond and Heaton, which are all a short walking distance. Sandyford is more often known to have plenty of student apartments and flats, but also has a lot of more traditional style student accommodation nearby.
