About US

Welcome to The Acorn Guesthouse

We, Vikki & Steve, have been running The Acorn Guesthouse since spring 2014 as a family business, although the guest house itself has been established for almost 20 years.

Over the last 4 years, we have been lovingly updating the guesthouse to offer our guests a friendly welcome, comfortable rooms, modern facilities, a relaxed atmosphere and a homely environment. Not to mention our delicious breakfasts, freshly cooked to order each morning.

We have a variety of rooms and tariffs available to suit all travellers including, single travellers, couples, friends and families. Whether you are visiting Sunderland to work or for pleasure, we have something to suit everyone.

All of our rooms are en-suite and contain a wealth of facilities you would expect for modern day travelling – plus one or two extras!!

We are perfectly situated just a 10 min walk from the centre of Sunderland and the two metro stations (Sunderland & Park Lane). The Bridges Shopping Centre & The Winter Gardens and Museum  are both a short walk down the road from us and a short taxi ride will get you to the famous Empire Theatre or The Stadium Of Light.


Whats New



We are continuing with our long term plans of restoring and refurbishing the building within the Grade II listed guidelines. It will take us many years to get the

building completely finished but we are making good progress. So far 5 of our 7 guest rooms have been individually redecorated. We hope to have the remaining 2 rooms completed in 2019.

Autism Friendly:                                                                                                                                                     

In Jan 2019, we are pleased to announce that we will become Autism Friendly. We have been working closely with a local Autism charity during the course of this year (2018) and will have a number of offerings available to any guests and their families staying with us who struggle with the daily challenges that Autism can bring. We are very excited about this so please watch this space for more details.



Supporting Local Businesses:                                                                                                                                 

We are also passionate about supporting local businesses, so we will be regularly adding information on our website about small local businesses that you can visit during your stay along with links to their websites so you can browse what they have to offer.
