The property

Base Camp is a two-bedroom bungalow set in the coastal town of South Shields in Northumberland.

Full of charm, this family-friendly property is within driving distance of multiple beaches and sleeps four, making it perfect for families and groups of friends travelling with up to three furry friends.

Step into your seaside getaway to see a fully-equipped kitchen in which your chefs can cook up a storm and a lounge/diner with a TV and electric fire to cosy up by on cold, winter nights.

The front of the property boasts a non-enclosed garden, and an additional enclosed garden at the rear for the kids and their four-legged friends to run around in.

As the evening winds to an end, freshen up in the shower room then head to bed in either a king-size or twin bedroom.

Within walking distance you’ll find a plethora of convenience stores and eateries such as The New Ship pub, Olive Tree Nook, and The Nook Cafe, for all of your eating and shopping needs.

Drive up to the seaside town of South Shields for an exciting day of fun at Ocean Beach Pleasure Park, the South Marine Park for activities like boating and train rides, and don’t forget to pack your swimsuit so you can hit up the stunning Sandhaven Beach.

Then head down to Sunderland for a taste of history and nature and visit the Sunderland Museum and Winter Garden, the beautiful 14th-century medieval gatehouse Hylton Castle, and end the day with a stroll or picnic at the dog-friendly Barnes Park.

Base Camp is your ideal coastal home away from home.

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.
