Why choose Ryton
Ryton is a semi-rural town on the western border of the Metropolitan Borough of Gateshead, located 6 miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne between Blaydon and Crawcrook.
In the past, Ryton’s economy was built around agriculture and coal mining but now due to its convenient location close to the A1 and main access roads to Tyneside, it serves as a commuter town.
For those of us who use public transport, there is a regular bus service connecting Ryton to Gateshead, Newcastle and the Tyne Valley.
Although a small town, Ryton has a variety of local amenities most of which are within in walking distance of Willows Edge including a Sainsbury’s local, Co-Op, two coffee shops, a Post Office and a range of schools.
The semi rural location, close to the River Tyne provides easy access to some great hiking and cycling trails that will take you westwards towards Prudhoe or eastwards to the city of Newcastle and eventually to the beautiful North East coast line.
Trains from Blaydon reach Newcastle in 15 minutes, going on to Sunderland and Hartlepool. National Cycle Routes 72 and 141, running along the north and south banks of the Tyne around a mile and a half away, provide quiet routes to Newcastle, Gateshead and the coast.
Leisure and outdoor space
Ryton is blessed with some fantastic open spaces where you can relax with the family or simply absorb the beautiful surroundings.
Ferndene Park is only half a mile from Willows Edge which has a play area with a good selection of equipment, a bowling green, a tennis court and a small football pitch.
Ryton Willows Nature Reserve is less than a mile from Willows Edge and offers tranquil walks along the River Tyne. Great for dog walkers and hikers, the river also provides a haven for wildlife.
Although Ryton does not have a gym or leisure centre, these can be found a few minutes drive from the development in nearby villages. There is also great access to outdoor sports including cricket, rugby and junior football as well two rowing clubs.
