Once belonging to the Queen and guarded by the nearby fort, The View Old Coastguard Cottage has plenty of history within its walls. Looking out onto the sea, this charming property has been transformed into a welcoming holiday home. Sleeping up to 10 guests, you can gather your loved ones together and enjoy a stay in Tynemouth to remember.
A vibrant and stunning property, sat astride the historic Spanish Battery on Tynemouth, boasting 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that can comfortably accommodate 10 guests in fine living and easy living for a wonderful getaway on the Northumberland coast. Two trundle beds are also available upon request, increasing the occupancy to 12.
At the beating heart of this property is the combined kitchen and dining room. Dominating the kitchen is the centre island, with fine, white worktops spreading out across it and the surrounding kitchen. The island also houses the electric hob on top of it and the extractor fan above. Circling the island are the other worksurfaces, as well as the drawers and cupboards that house all the cutlery and dinnerware you will need. The kitchen also offers two electric ovens, fridge and freezer, toaster and kettle. Across from the Kitchen is the dining room, which has space and chairs to seat six people comfortably for comfort dining as you admire the decorations across the walls.
Through from the kitchen is a games room for the perfect night-in. Fitted with a pool table, two sofas, TV, fridge and mini-bar. This room is the ideal place for a high-octane Friday night. For those more quiet hours of relaxing however there is also a living room, luxuriously decorated, with a wood-burning fireplace and flatscreen TV, all of which you can relax and take in while reclined in one of the two sofas or the plush leather armchair.
Head outside and you'll find a garden containing a hot tub that can comfortably accommodate seven guests.
Steeped in history with strong maritime connections, The View Old Coastguard Cottage is located in the upmarket seaside town of Tynemouth. Boasting a beautiful sandy beach, a Victorian boating lake and an array of independent cafes, restaurants and bars, there is truly something for everyone in Tynemouth. Enjoy relaxing walks along the seafront, amble along the promenade to the popular North Shields Fish Quay or explore the Blue Reef Aquarium. If you have little ones, they’ll love Tynemouth Park where there is a dinosaur themed mini golf course and pedalo boats.
We’d also recommend visiting Whitley Bay during your stay where you can enjoy two miles of golden sands and experience incredible views of the coastline from the Victorian lighthouse on St Mary’s Island. If you’re looking for somewhere to eat, head to Spanish City where you’ll find a Renaissance-style hall transformed with a fish and chip restaurant, a traditional tearoom, a waffle and pancake house and a champagne bar inside.
There is a metro station located in Tynemouth with frequent routes to South Shields and Newcastle so you can explore the North East easily.
You’ll also find a number of bus stops throughout the town. Hop on the Arriva 306 route which travels to Newcastle with stops in North Shields and Jesmond amongst others.
