Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear, England
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. Wow! as several guests have said as they walked into the lounge for the first time.

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 excel...

Ferry: North Shields: 5.0 km
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...
