Hawthorn Road is one of the most sought-after mature residential streets and is located in the heart of central Gosforth.  Running off the High Street. This is a perfect location for families who want to be part of the city and live in one of Newcastle’s most sought-after locations.

The High Street itself offers a wealth of amenities including local and national shops, restaurants, public houses, coffee shops, banks and post office.  Gosforth is renowned for its excellent schooling for all ages, whilst it also has access to a number of private schools across the city.

Lying to the north of the city just over the Town Moor, Gosforth is well positioned for commuting directly back into Newcastle via bus, road and Metro.  From the city centre there is a mainline rail station that connects to London Kings Cross in less than three hours, whilst to the north of Gosforth is Newcastle International Airport with destinations around the globe.  The A1 trunk road provides ease of access regionally, whilst to the west and north is Northumberland’s beautiful countryside, and to the east is its heritage coastline with pretty seaside towns such as Whitley Bay and Tynemouth.
