Hello I am Jill and this is my home where I live most of the time. I am very lucky to live 2 minutes away from our beautiful beaches and coastline. My partner Gerry and I love to cycle and the cycle track is conveniently located at the bottom of the street, this continues all the way to South Shields and further by using the passenger ferry. Incidentally this is also the end of the C2C cycle route where its tradition to dip your front wheel in the sea before collecting your well deserved certificate. The house is located in a conservation area right next to Roker Park and there is plenty of parking outside. There are many places of interest to visit which are just a drive or bus ride away such as the City of Durham, South Shields, Newcastle, Tynemouth, Whitley Bay, Cullercoats and St Mary's Island are a just a few to mention. There are also some amazing coastal walks with fantastic views and of course if the weather is warm it is lovely to sit and relax either in the park or on the beach.
Sunderland is famous for glass and within 10minutes walk is the National Glass Centre which is well worth a visit. There are some lovely restaurants within walking distance and some lovely fish and chip take-aways, my favourite Minchella's in Seaburn but be prepared to queue. I have provided a manual with lots of leaflets packed with information on what to do, where to eat and bus and metro timetables.
A bit about myself I work as a manager for the NHS and hope to take early retirement next year. We hope to do lots of travelling and presently in discussion about living overseas for the winter months. I am also an artist and you will see some of my work on the walls of the apartment. I have one son who works in management consultancy and presently on a two year contract in Johannesburg.
I'm open to any questions you may have prior to booking.
