Perfect for a short breaks, contractors working locally as well as a home from home during house renovations or between house moves.

The space
Exceptional Sea front location, with uninterrupted sea views.
A minute's walk to Bents Park, South Marine Park or easy stroll across 'The Dragon' playing field to the beach, fairground and all the seafront amenities.
The apartment is modern, compact (ie. not big) and ideal for a family holiday, where 2 adults and 2 kids can be comfortably accommodated. Alternatively it can provide spacious living for a single person or couple for longer stays. Two to three persons looking for short business, study or leisure stays would also find the accommodation suitable.

Melanie, a close family friend, will liaise with guests to give you keys in person upon arrival and show you how things work inside the apartment.

The wonderful thing about this neighbourhood is the seaside lifestyle it offers - South Shields style!
We can't promise Californian sunshine but the beach is glorious rain or shine. Feel the sand between your toes and breathe in the fresh sea air!
Walk or cycle along the Leas to Marsden Bay and Souter Lighthouse, or to Arbeia Roman Fort & Museum.
Enjoy the brand new, state-of-the-art Haven Point leisure centre with three indoor swimming pools and crazy water slides located at the foot of South Shields pier; an easy 5 minute walk away.
Directly across from the apartment is Minchella's ice cream parlour serving its famous ice cream - it also has free Wi-Fi.
A short stroll will take you to Ocean Road where there is Coleman's - voted 'The Best Fish and Chips restaurant in Britain' (just ask David Miliband or Tony Blair) or a truly amazing selection of Indian restaurants and takeaways. There are plenty of seafront pubs serving good food and great beer at affordable prices.
If you prefer your favourite home cooked meals, there is a handy Tesco Express supermarket 4 minutes walk away along Sea Winnings Way (turn right out of main entrance and SWW is first right). It is open from 6am until 10pm selling a wide selection of food, drinks and toiletries. There's also a 24 hour ATM machine and a few doors up from that is Mac 'n' Alli - a cool tea shop serving breakfast.
From the comfort of your living room window watch ferries coming and going into the Tyne.

South Shields Metro is a 10-15 walk away with trains to Newcastle city centre, Newcastle Airport, Sunderland and Tynemouth. Alternatively there are bus stops very close by that run frequently up the coast road to Whitburn and Sunderland, or to South Shields town centre and the marketplace.
There is also the Shields Ferry (no cars) close to the marketplace that sails throughout the day between North Shields and South Shields. Close by the recently re-opened pedestrian tunnel allows cyclists and pedestrians to cross to North Shields. International ferries leave the Tyne every day to The Netherlands and Scandinavia.

South Tyneside Council puts on free music concerts at Bents Park and the seafront amphitheatre throughout the summer. Every Monday and Thursday afternoon there are special free performances for younger kids at the amphitheatre, as well as performances and cinema at the Customs House. The Westovians Theatre on Pier Parade also puts on plays and funny pantomimes with local performers.

For the cycling enthusiasts, why not rest your weary legs after the gruelling 174 mile Coast to Coast cycle route. Starting at Ravenglass, on Cumbria's West Coast and finishing on the East Coast in South Shields. C2C and Hadrian's Cycleway Route 72 are very popular cycling challenges. If you prefer something more leisurely there are plenty of local routes to choose from, take a look at map my ride. We can offer secure bike storage in a shared storage area on the ground floor of the apartment building.

I live in Hong Kong with my young family. We love coming back to South Shields for our summer holidays to spend time with relatives and take our kids to the beach, Shields fairground, go on the miniature steam train around the South Marine Park and explore the Northumberland coast. And of course eat lots of fish & chips and Minchella's ice-cream! We hope you enjoy the apartment and its lovely sea views as much as we do. Our good friend, Melanie, looks after guests when we are not using our holiday home. Melanie will arrange access for you and help you orientate yourselves upon arrival. We hope your enjoy our coastal retreat.
