Home to spectacular panoramic views of Tyneside, it is the perfect place for a Sunday stroll through the woodlands. The family can enjoy long yomps through various woodland trails, rolling fields and ancient ruins.

They also host Paul’s Monday Night Fun Quiz every week, where the local scran is free and budding new eggheads are welcomed with open arms.

What’s close to Gateshead?

Just a 20 minute drive from Windy Nook, down the A1(M), is the Intu Metrocentre. A shopper’s paradise big enough to warrant its own entertainment centres and almost 50 places to eat and drink, it is very easy to spend a day here. By investigating its indoor shopping village you will soon realise, every shop from A-Z lines the concourse, from top-end designer brands like Kurt Geiger to affordable fashion brands such as Zara. There is no need to leave the children at home, either. Especially when there is an Angry bird Adventure Golf to play, pitch and putt your way around this fun, quirky course. Afterwards, indulge in a meal in one of the many cafes, restaurants and bars. With a plethora of cuisines to choose from, there really is something for everyone.

Just across the River Tyne lies one of the most vibrant cities of the north. Hailed for its nightlife, Newcastle’s party scene and neon dance floors are there to be enjoyed by all ages, old and young alike. Many football legends have represented the Magpies at Newcastle’s beloved stadium, St James’ Park, such as Alan Shearer - football is a big part of the culture here, so you will learn to love or hate matchdays. For those looking to delve deeper into the mind, the Life Science Museum often puts on unique exhibitions, such as Lego, Dinosaurs and Out Space. Boasting of a great heritage, you can explore the hidden Victoria tunnel that lies a few feet below Newcastle’s streets, originally built for transporting coal, the tunnel was used to protect hundreds of Geodies in WWII.

You do not have to venture far to continue your historic tour of the North East. If you head towards the coast, you will come across Tynemouth Castle and Priory. Tyne and Wear has long been a fortified port and an important part of English History. The castle stands proudly on the cliffs of the Northern coastline and offers breathtaking views. These are best enjoyed with a box of Fish and Chips from Longsands Fish Kitchen, where curry sauce is included in the price. The expansive sandy beaches are perfect for family days out that will be remembered for years to come, and if you are brave enough, you can enjoy a dip in the sea or put on a wetsuit for a lesson with one of the UK’s leading surf schools. If you head back across the Tyne, you will find yourself at South Shields, home of the Barbour Jacket. Here, Marsden beach is the ideal place to bring your bucket and spade, through years of erosion, breathtaking rocks that strut out of the sea. Nestled in the cliff opposite is Marsden Grotto, a smugglers haunt full of ghostly pirate stories which now serves exquisite mussels and other seaside treats.
