LeisureThe highly desirable location of the development is partially down to the fantastic mix of busy centres and open spaces. In the same time it takes to get to the city centre you could reach Town Moor, nearly 1,000 acres of green open space. It’s a highly valued area where locals can exercise, enjoy nature and wildlife, and visit seasonal attractions. Just half an hour’s drive from The Maples will take you to the golden stretches of Long Sands Beach at Tynemouth, or, closer to home, you’ll find Havannah Nature Reserve and no less than three golf courses within five miles of the development.
TransportNewcastle is a major transport hub for the North East and The Maples is perfectly positioned to make the most of the many transport links, for commuters or those travelling further afield. Just 10 minutes away, the A1 provides access to main towns and cities throughout the east of England. Also 10 minutes away is the metro station at Kingston Gate, part of the underground network that connects the city. Newcastle International Airport is a short drive of 12 minutes away, another reason why this development is in such a prime location.
EducationThe Maples is a great choice for families with children of all ages thanks to the many excellent schools in the area. Hazlewood Community School, Brunton First School and Dinnington First School are all close to the development and rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, while a wider range of schools and education services can be found in the popular area of Gosforth, around 15 minutes away.
ShoppingThough the proximity to Gosforth puts shops, pubs and everyday services in easy reach, a wide range of larger supermarkets and high street brands can be found just eight minutes away in Kingston Park, which also boasts an underground station. You could take advantage of this as an easy way to reach the city centre, or simply drive 16 minutes to enjoy all that Newcastle has to offer. The bustling city is known for its accessibility, culture, packed events calendar and great nightlife, as well as being a major centre for industry.
