On the outskirts of Blyth, with its historic port and harbour, Crofton Grange is close to a stunning beach with beautiful stretches of golden sand. Located just three miles from the A189 and around 25 minutes' drive from the centre of Newcastle, this is a great place for a new home.
The town has excellent facilities, and the Quayside and Market Place have been redeveloped to create attractive focal points within the town. Blyth is still an important commercial port which is why the town's road links are important. The A189 connects with the A19 and then the A1 giving you the advantage of easy access to Newcastle approximately 15 miles to the south. You can get there by train too, with services taking just over an hour. It'll be tempting to stay close to home though, with Blyth Beach, South Beach, and Ridley Park to entertain the family.
There's plenty to keep you and your family busy. Attractions include a large leisure centre and pool, the Phoenix Theatre, and one of England's most famous amateur football clubs - Blyth Spartans. There is a Vue multiplex cinema in nearby Cramlington and there are a wide range of clubs, cinemas, theatres, bars and restaurants in Bedlington, Ashington, Morpeth and Newcastle.
