Southcliff Apartments are set in lawned gardens overlooking picturesque Brown's Bay in the delightful fishing village and conservation area of Cullercoats - many of our guests have been delighted to see dolphins and seals from their window. Around the corner is pretty Cullercoats Bay, and a short stroll brings you to the blue flag beaches of Whitley Bay and Tynemouth. This is a privileged cliff top position on a quiet Victorian walkway with uninterrupted sea views. There are excellent transport links - Newcastle is just 20 mins, Tyne Tunnel (A19 and A1) are just 10 mins. At the rear of the apartments is Cullercoats Bike and Kayak shack offering Kayak and paddle boarding excursions, and a 10 minute walk brings you to Tynemouth Surf Co., ideal for a surf lesson or bring your board and catch some waves on the longsands. We are based on a cycle path and the local park run is just 10 mins walk away. The Metro Staion is just 5 mins walk providing direct access to Newcastle. And there is free parking on your doorstep. This is an ideal base from which to explore the majestic Northumberland Coast and historic Hadrian's Wall.
