Sitting on the eastern outskirt of the village, Augusta Park is perfectly positioned to enjoy these amenities and those of the surrounding towns and villages, while the many shops, eateries and attractions of Newcastle are a quick 15-minute drive away. If you need a break from hustle and bustle of everyday life, you could head to one of the nearby country parks or to the coast, less than half an hour away.
As for transport links, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better selection considering the village location. The development is close to major motor routes, and benefits from a bus network that puts the surrounding villages and Newcastle within easy reach. The nearest train station is 12 minutes away, the nearest Metro station three miles away, and you could say goodbye to early airport starts as Newcastle International Airport is just down the road.
There are plenty of chances to socialise and integrate with your new community at Dinnington Social Club, or any of the pubs and sports clubs in the village and nearby Ponteland. For outdoor leisure opportunities you could head 2.3 miles to Big Waters Nature Reserve to walk and enjoy the abundance of wildlife, or visit Northumberlandia or Plessey Woods which are also within easy reach.
