City break to Newcastle and Gateshead

If you want a city break Newcastle and Gateshead is the place to go they have something for everyone Culture shopping art resturants and night life.   The Riding is the ideal base just 7 miles out of town surrounded by countryside but so easy to get to

Newcastle has been put on the map for food by Terry Leybourne and there are all types of restaurants cafes and bars to suit all tastes and pockets.  Caffe Vivo the new italian is yummy

If you are visiting Newcastle for a short break I would recommend that you take a bus tour as you can be dropped off at different areas of the city as Newcastle is spread out and there is a lot to cover by foot. The Riding will be ideal to rest after a visit to Newcastle whether on business or pleasure as we are only 7 easy miles away but surrounded by countryside.

7 stories is new to Newcastle but is a fantastic place to visit with or without the children 7 storeys of books for all ages and ranges they do story times as well as other activities it was a lovely way to spend a rainy day and is on the guided bus tour. So as you can see there is plenty to see and do so you best stay at Low Urpeth as we are only 7 miles away providing bed and breakfast (4 star silver) and self catering in one of our 3 cottages all ensuite and all 4 star
