The Area

South Shields is the jewel in the crown of the North East, long overlooked by holiday makers from the South of England yet remains in the hearts of those who visit once then return time on time.

South Shields is ideally placed to visit the astounding beauty this area has to offer. From the golden beaches and beautiful parks of South Shields to the rolling hills of Northumberland and wonderful historic major towns like Durham, Hexham, Alnwick and York. The lesser known villages of Blanchland, Cotherstone, (fantastic cheese made here) Norham, Stanhope, Fosterley and many more.

The rugged coastline is home to the world famous Bamburgh castle, Craster, which is home to wonderful Craster kippers, small fishing villages which have charm and character, visit the Farne Islands, Berwick, long fought over as being Scottish or English, from here go to Holy Island and the monastery of St. Cuthbert or laze on one of South Shields golden beaches go bird watching at Marsden Rock South Shields.

For shopacholics the Metro Centre offers the most dedicated shopper an amazing array of shops. Newcastle upon Tyne, Durham, Sunderland York, all offer someone a taste of everything they could be looking for.

If not venturing out of South Shields, visit the reconstructed Roman Fort, St. Hilda’s church, visit the ancient town hall in the town centre, meander the wonderful parks and gardens and saunter along the cliff tops. Enjoy scrumptious fish and chips made from daily caught fish at one of our famous chip shops. Savour superb meals from one of our recommended restaurants or make yourself a meal from produce bought at a farmers market in our wonderfully equipped kitchen.

If feeling more in need to exercise book a round of golf at one of the golf courses designed for differing capabilities. Feel the wind in your hair as you ride a beautiful horse over the hills. Have a fun day in the new £16 million pool and leisure centre. Or try your luck on the one armed bandit at the fun fair.

South Shields and the surrounding area, has something for all ages and all interests. Where better place to have as your base than 4 Star EMBLA.
