  • "A true sea view and well sorted house made a perfect stay for our first trip to this area."

    Spotlessly clean, and well equipped ... perhaps expected these days but a spritzer in the rear garden 'sun trap' and its attractively designed front garden raises it a step above the usual. Easy access to cliffs and beaches, to Sunderland for the National Glass Centre and Metro for exploring over the river makes it a great base. For fish lovers, scallops purchased from Latimers were very poor quality, Fish Quay in Tynemouth did not disappoint.

  • "Comfort and convenience for dog walking was excellent."

    The welcome pack was a lovely touch when we arrived. On opening the door, the sea view was stunning and stayed with us throughout the holiday. Main bedroom has the same view so it was lovely to wake up to that beautiful view. Inside, the decor sets the holiday mood, bright colours and lovely seascape pictures. Feels like a home, rather than a holiday rental. Everything you could want in the kitchen, and private garden to the front and back. Also the private parking helped a lot, as we had travelled from Scotland. Lovely host, Jenny. So helpful with places to eat and transport to both South Shields and Sunderland. Also, just along the coast is a fantastic beach at Seaburn, which has a Morrisons and great eating places. Great holiday all round

The property

Settled into the coastal town of South Shields, Tyne and Wear, Sea View Cottage is a lovely family holiday home resting close to the beach.

The property has panoramic sea views from the front lounge and master bedroom where guests can watch ships and ferries sail from the mouth of the Tyne to Holland.

Relax on the front garden terrace with a morning coffee to look across the Tyne to Tynemouth Priory and St Mary's Lighthouse.

Unpack with ease from a rear parking spot, take a moment to relax in the living/dining area with a good book, before meal times call, and you make the most of the ample amenities in the grey-tiled kitchen.

Two bedrooms await your relaxation, both with storage and views across the town and coastal landscape, so freshen up in the bathroom and choose between a king-size and a twin.

Indulge in an outdoor breakfast in either the front or rear enclosed garden with your four-legged companion by your side.

South Shields is a lovely seaside town with loads of amenities and attractions, and is known for its sandy beaches, history and abundance of tasty curry houses.

Head into town to stock up on essentials, or enjoy a heart-warming meal out at one of the local eateries, for example Marsden Grotto and Deli 6 Lounge, and you can enjoy a glass of your favourite beverage at The Ship Inn or tea and cake at the Hilltop Cafe.

As well as many great eateries, the town has its own golf course, dog park, nature reserve and fantastic sandy beaches such as Marsden and Sandhaven beaches, between which you will find scenic coastal walks, the historic South Shields Roman Fort and Ocean Beach Pleasure Park.

Further from the property you can find more beaches ideal for watersports at North Shields, Hylton Castle, the incredible amphitheatre at Herrington Country Park and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens.

There is simply so much to do with a stay at the coastal Sea View Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Sunderland 7.7 miles; Newcastle-upon-Tyne 11.9 miles.

Sitting at the mouth of the River Tyne, a few miles downstream from Newcastle upon Tyne, is the coastal town of South Shields. Historically part of County Durham, South Shields, which had long been a shipbuilding centre, was taken over by heavy industries like coal mining and glassmaking in the 19th century. Today, it has become a thriving seaside town with a fabulous Blue Flag beach, attracting holidaymakers and visitors alike. The town is home to many attractions, including the South Shields Museum where visitors can delve into the history of the area, the Ocean Beach Pleasure Park, ideal for a family day out and the iconic Souter Lighthouse, where you can climb the 76 steps to the top for spectacular views. There are also plenty of scenic walking opportunities along the coastline over spectacular and cliffs and rocky bays, along with two fantastic parks, the South Marine and North Marine Park, which are perfect for an afternoon stroll. The centre of Newcastle can be reached in half an hour’s drive, where you can explore bustling high streets with a plethora of shops and eateries, uncover centuries of history and heritage and cross over the seven iconic bridges.
