The coastal getaway of South Shields is ideally located between the cities of Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland. You can experience the natural beauty of South Tyneside s magnificent Natural Trust s twisting cliff tops and gorgeous award winning sandy beaches, visit a multitude of popular local attractions or take in all the fun of the fair in a traditional seaside resort.
Here you ll find an abundance of wildlife, hidden coves, cycleways and a pioneering lighthouse. Also home to a Roman Fort (a UNESCO World Heritage site,) and near to Bede s World museum. Breathtaking scenery for walkers, cyclists, great for birdwatchers, ideal for various water sports and divers, outdoor sports including golf and bowls, horse riding, and of course South Shields is the setting for the finish line of the famous Great North Run (the flat is only a 10 minute walk from the finish line and a 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station.)
This comfortable, well proportioned first floor flat offers a generous feel and excellent value (there are stairs at the front and rear of the property.) Very well located it is only a 5-10 minute walk to the sea front, or a 5 minute walk to Westoe Village - a historic peaceful oasis in the heart of South Shields which has links with several famous people. It was well known to Catherine Cookson during her youth and the setting for several of the books. Many of the North East s major attractions are only a short drive or Metro ride away (nearest station is a 10 minute walk from the flat.) This ground floor flat is a traditionally built Tyneside flat which forms part of a terrace of similar properties.
As such there are neighbours on each side, above and opposite.
We therefore cannot guarantee peace and quiet at all times as is the nature of flats/apartments! We accept a well behaved dog subject to a refundable pet deposit of £25.00 (please note we don t permit pets on soft furnishings or to be left unattended in rooms with soft furnishings.)

You will soon discover that South Tyneside really has something for everyone - the glorious North Eastern coast will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
