Holiday Rental House
The iconic Liddell House was built in 1958 by the wealthy local builder of that name as a beach-house to be gifted to his daughter. It was designed by his friend, the architect Peter Yates, of the local Ryder Yates Partnership, and originally included a number of ground-breaking design concepts. These unique key features have been retained & sympathetically enhanced whilst keeping the house true to the original concept. Liddell House features on Page 29-30 of the 'Ryder & Yates' book by Rutter Carroll. A fantastic & completely unique Townhouse on 3-levels, with panoramic views from four very large windows of Tynemouth Longsands towards the Boating Lake, Art-Deco styled Park Hotel & Cullercoats.

The Townhouse featured in Professional Photographer Magazine on the 24th October 2012, courtesy of Richard Hanley & following a 2-day location shoot. Third Films Limited has also shot a short film at the Townhouse earlier in 2012. The Castell's also completed a promotional video that features on You Tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_KX1wwr2Qk More

About the neighbourhood
A great opportunity to relax, unwind and enjoy a well-deserved break in a uniquely different 60's themed setting - let's face it you probably need a holiday. Only a short few minutes walk away from the renowned Tynemouth Longsands beach, Crusoe's cafe, Tynemouth Boating Lake & the Grand Hotel. You will be 4-minutes walk away from Tynemouth Priory, steeped in 2000 years of history: as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, an Anglican monastery, a royal castle, artillery fort, coastal defence & burial site of several Kings of Northumbria. The Townhouse is very close to the scenic & trendy Tynemouth 'Village' itself with a wide choice of popular cafes, pubs and restaurants. Tynemouth Metro Station is also close by (with it's famous Sunday Market), and with an excellent service that will take you stra...
How to get there
The townhouse is very easy to find: it is situated on Grand Parade, Tynemouth more or less equidistant between the Grand Hotel & Park Hotel overlooking the Tynemouth Longsands seafront. From Newcastle upon Tyne: head along the main A1058 Coast Road towards Tynemouth - quite literally situated on the north side of the mouth of the river Tyne. From the north-bound A1 or A19 route towards the Tyne Tunnel: travel through the Tyne Tunnel straight up to the first main roundabout approximately 1 mile away, turn right (fourth exit) on to the main A1058 Coast Road & keep the river on your right & follow the Tynemouth signs. Southbound from Glasgow: Take the M74 to Carlisle, A69 Carlisle to Hexham (watching for the speed cameras) & on towards Newcastle then pick-up signs for the Coast. Tynemouth...
