Wylam is an incredibly pretty village with its fine railway heritage, famously the birthplace of George Stephenson, the inventor of the famous railway locomotive, the ‘Rocket’.
Located within the heart of the Tyne Valley this property benefits from excellent local transport links to Newcastle City Centre as well as a wealth of indie local shops, bistros and supermarkets, gastropubs and restaurants. Newcastle is within easy commuting distance with good access to the A69 to both Newcastle and Carlisle as well as Newcastle airport and the A1. The local train station is within walking distance, linking to Newcastle Airport via the Metro at Newcastle mainline station and also the Metrocentre shopping centre.
There are numerous good schools in the area including Wylam First School, ranked ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Ovingham, Prudhoe and Hexham Middle Schools, and independent school, Mowden Hall Preparatory School.
If you are into fishing after a hard day in the City, The River Tyne is famously hailed as one of England’s best salmon fishing rivers. For golfing fans, there is the fabulous Close House Golf Club which was the official venue of the 2017 British Masters on the European Tour.
The Tyne is divided into three strands, each popular with local anglers and visitors alike. The North and South Tyne converge on the outskirts of the historic market town of Hexham, forming the River Tyne which flows east to the coast. Salmon and trout are regularly caught on all three rivers, with the North Tyne and River Tyne catering to coarse fishing. Prime locations for fishing the River Tyne can be found upstream of Wylam, with a number of idyllic banks and pebble beaches stretching all the way to Hexham.
