|The apartments are situated in a smart Victorian terrace – considered as a conservation area. The seafront is a happy place, much loved year round by local walkers, joggers, cyclists, prampushers, kite flyers, and those enjoying holidays or a day out from Newcastle (10 minutes by car, 20 mins by metro - the station is 3 mins walk). It is interesting to watch the ferries from northern Europe gliding past the historic Tynemouth Priory into the Tyne Estuary between the piers of North Shields and South Shields. Within 3 minutes walking distance are small local shops, hairdressers, a minimarket and an abundance of restaurants and varied takeaways. Cullercoats is easy to reach by car, train, from the airport or via the ferry.
Several bus routes are close by and the local metro train is 3 minutes walk giving easy access to Newcastle and the airport. Passenger ferries from Sweden, Norway & Holland dock on the river Tyne, 10 minutes drive away. Some guests find local metro trains and buses so convenient, they don’t need to use the car unless travelling beyond Newcastle. We welcome visitors from abroad and can take calls in French or Spanish – at weekends in French, Spanish, German, Swedish, Portuguese and Italian.
