    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    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 th...

    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...

Lovely welcome, and an amazing and interesting place to stay. Gorgeous views and good accommodation. Parking a bit difficult at times, but would recommend Liddell town house to anyone who would like something a bit different. Many thanks to Tony and Kath for accommodating us at short notice and at a difficult time. more

Jane, Many thanks for taking the time to write such a nice & sincere review of the Townhouse.

It was a pleasure meeting you both & hopefully we will see you again at some... more
