  • Loved it, loved it, loved it.

    “Very helpful owner, very thoughtfully laid out holiday cottage with high quality fixtures and fittings. A calm and comfortable retreat from the world with the luxury of direct access to miles of sand, the drama of the seas, stunning sunset and even, for us , a resting seal.”

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Hartlepool is this delightful, seafront terraced house.

Enjoying fabulous sea views, this Headland property is perfect for families seeking a traditional seaside getaway to the North East of England.

Step into the large sitting room, housing plenty of seating for everyone to snuggle up and enjoy a DVD beside the alluring woodburning stove.

Just beyond this room rests the well-presented kitchen, appointed with a selection of contemporary appliances and stylish units to form an attractive cooking area.

Upstairs plays hosts to the bedrooms, including a single and double bedroom, the double benefitting from glorious sea views, as well as a dazzling family bathroom with bath and shower over layout.After a tiring day exploring the coastline, look forward to a soothing bath to relax and rejuvenate. Stroll along Hartlepool’s historic quay and make a stop in the fascinating museum, housing large exhibitions which tells the story of Hartlepool from prehistoric times to the present day, including the steel, coal and fishing industries.

Get your retail fix in the Middleton Grange shopping centre which is one of the largest in the North East.

Outdoor enthusiasts can stroll, jog or cycle along the Promenade immediately outside the house, walk or beach-comb on the adjacent beach, or go rockpooling within a couple of minutes walk.

Further afield there are walks along the banks of the banks of the River Tees or the Durham Coastal Path.

Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to the RSPB's flagship reserve at Saltholme or Teesmouth Nature Reserve, home to a diverse range of habitats and offering plenty of bird-watching opportunities.

The Headland is renown amongst twitchers as one of the top migratory birdwatching hotspots, and attracts a wide range of birds throughout the year.

Terns, waders, seaduck, geese, gannets and guillemots abound and with patience and binoculars you can occasionally see dolphins and porpoises from the house!

Head further north to the cathedral city of Durham and explore the quirky shops and award-winning restaurants, as well as the historic attractions including the Romanesque cathedral.

Newcastle is also within a easy journey for a day out in the north's leading city.

With plenty to see and do in the area, this coastal dwelling has everything you’ll need for a seaside holiday to remember.

About the location


Durham 18.1 miles; Saltburn-by-the-Sea 30 miles; Whitby 50.1 miles.

The coastal town of Hartlepool lies north of the Tees estuary, with the North York Moors to the south and the majestic cathedral town of Durham, a short drive to the North West. There has been huge investment in regeneration projects and Hartlepool now offers an award-winning marina, with associated trendy restaurants and bars overlooking stunning yachts and sea going cruisers. In the heart of the town there is a multiplex cinema, a health and fitness centre with swimming pool and Middleton Grange shopping centre, which is the third largest in the region, with a traditional market hall. Other attractions include the HMS Tricomalee - Nelson's last fighting frigate and the Heugh Battery Museum. Seaton Carew beach and its associated demanding golf course lies two miles down the coast and a short drive brings you to Saltholme RSPB Reserve, where seals and wading birds are regularly spotted. The more adventurous will be attracted to the impressive Teesside White Water Centre, whilst others may prefer a quiet walk along the Tees riverside walk. Beamish open air museum is within easy reach, near Durham city and well worth a day trip. Hartlepool provides a good base for those wishing to sample a novel corner of Britain, combining the beauty of the coastal waters with the rich industrial heritage of former times.
