Newcastle upon Tyne
A mile and a half from the A1, three miles from Newcastle International Airport and five from the city centre, the development is well placed for travel throughout the country and abroad. Callerton Parkway Metro Station, a park-and-ride facility just over two miles to the north, is on the Metro Green Line, with more than four services an hour on weekdays through Newcastle city centre, 20 minutes
away, and on to Gateshead and Sunderland. Buses between Newcastle and Hexham pass alongside the development, and further local services travel along North Walbottle Road, five minutes walk away.
A convenience store in Greenway, ten minutes walk away, sells fresh produce, newspapers and magazines, beers and wines, and other everyday items. Other retailers within around half an hour’s walk include butchers, hardware stores and food takeaways, Aldi and Asda supermarkets and the Denton Park Shopping Centre which has Morrisons and Boots stores and a post office. For a wider choice, Newcastle city centre offers an enormous diversity of shopping, and the vast Metro-centre mall is also in easy reach.
Recreational amenities include a leisure centre at West Denton, near the Denton Park shops, with a 33m swimming pool, teaching pool, fitness gym, training area and sports pitches. Westerhope Golf Club, an excellent 18-hole parkland course with full clubhouse facilities, is less than a mile away, and traditional family friendly pubs within a short walk include The Poachers Cottage and the Jingling Gate. Quiet roads and paths near the development provide excellent opportunities for walking or cycling around the local countryside.
Westerhope Community Centre, fifteen minutes walk away, hosts a range of clubs and activities including bowling, snooker, children’s groups, and social evenings in the bar. For a more cosmopolitan spectrum of entertainment and cultural activities, the short trip into Newcastle City Centre by Metro or bus opens up an enormous selection of museums, galleries, cinemas, theatres, clubs and live comedy and music venues.
