Extra Amenities

Steeped in history, The View is one of the old coastguard houses and once belonged to The Queen, guarded by the nearby fort who were on the lookout for invaders. This quirky property retains a wealth of authenticity and charm and looks out in all directions to the sea, Priory and the TVLB Lifeboat Museum. The owner has displayed some old photographs showing the interesting history.
There are two outdoor sitting areas, one detached to the front, and one to the side of the house. Located on what is called The Spanish Battery in the upmarket seaside town of Tynemouth, where the promenade stretches a few miles to Cullercoats and Whitley Bay. Nearby North Shields has been home to The Tall Ships Races, and the working harbour and fish restaurants here are perfect for exploring some real Geordie hospitality.

Tynemouth has something for everyone, with award-winning beaches famed for surfing competitions, the Blue Reef Aquarium, a Victorian boating lake, the beautiful Priory, stunning promenades and an abundance of lovely bars, cafés and restaurants suitable for all age groups and tastes. Little cafés serving fish and chips and ice-creams are hidden along parts of the beach.
A stroll along to Whitley Bay is a must, where you can stop off for a nice drink or a meal inside the Spanish City, or a glass of champagne in the bar on the top floor with lovely views across the North Sea towards St Mary’s Lighthouse.

Tynemouth is also home to a super weekend market, set in the Metro Station, known as the Covent Garden of the North, and it truly is worth a visit, within easy walking distance from your doorstep. You could of course hop on a metro over to Newcastle and explore this cultural city and quayside, or visit the theatre. It is easy to travel through Northumberland from here in all directions. Head north to explore the Heritage Coast steeped with historic castles and more golden beaches, or take yourself West, to perhaps explore Hadrian’s Wall, also worth a visit whilst in the area. Beach 950 yards. Shop 950 yards, pub and restaurant 350 yard
