South Shields is a pretty coastal town at the mouth of the River Tyne, roughly 12 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne. It has much to offer both locals and tourists - long sandy beaches, impressive clifftop views, a picturesque village setting and, of course, Colmans, with its award-winning fish and chips. South Shields is the latest location for an exclusive Retirement Living development by award-winning builders McCarthy & Stone.
Our new development, comprises 33 one-bedroom apartments and 16 two-bedroom apartments in a modern and contemporary complex. The stylish apartments feature a fully fitted kitchen and shower room, integrated oven, hob and hood, raised electrical sockets and two points for a telephone and TV connection. Selected apartments also feature balconies.
Residents will also be treated to an on-site lounge for socialising with neighbours and friends, and an ample private car park with 33 spaces. Our developments have been designed with your needs in mind - we take care of all those daily chores so you can enjoy your retirement and independence.
Located in a quiet residential area, our development is within easy reach of all the town's amenities and public transport. The charming Westoe Village, with its postcard-worthy Georgian and Victorian houses, is less than a mile from the development's front door, and there are a number of green spaces and parks just a few streets away.
