The Oaklands is a select development of just 45 beautiful new homes, situated approximately 6 miles north of the vibrant city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and close to the affluent suburb of Gosforth.
Renowned for its fantastic nightlife, with a host of live music, bars and nightclubs, Newcastle's buzzing cosmopolitan atmosphere complements its rich collections of museums art galleries and sporting venues.
Gosforth's handy location means that you can easily slip away from the buzz of urban life and make the most of local amenities. The area is home to a great range of shops (there's a vibrant high street, indoor shopping centre and range of independent shops), schools and leisure facilities, making it an ideal base for families. Meanwhile Hadrian's Wall and the surrounding stunning countryside can be easily reached, as can the popular seaside town of Tynemouth.
Whatever your preferences, there is so much going on in the local area. Sports enthusiasts can hire bikes and boats in Newcastle, spend a day white water rafting, canyoning or gorge walking at Endless Adventure North East, or head to one of five golf courses that are located close to The Oaklands. A short drive south of the development you'll find the Town Moor, a scenic area of open space larger than New York's Central Park! And of course, the nearby city centre provides all the retail therapy, dining options, nightlife and cultural attractions you could need.
The area is brimming with primary and secondary schools (85 in total), including a wide range of schools in and around a mile of Gosforth – there are six Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding' schools within a mile.
Living at The Oaklands you will be well connected by road, with the A1 less than three miles from the development. Tyne and Wear Metro puts the town centre within 20 minutes reach, and for train travel there are regular routes that connect you to London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, and many other UK centres. The Oaklands is ideally positioned for international travel too, with Newcastle International Airport just over six miles away.
