Set in the pretty village of Ryton (Britains smallest town). Lovely rural area with great cycle trails. We have room to store bikes. Great walks along river to see all of the wild life.
Approx 5 miles from Metrocentre with it's great shopping and 7 miles from Newcastle City Centre. Great base to visit all of Northumberlands attractions. Close House Golf course within easy reach. We have a hot tub (shared) in our garden which is on during Summer Months only.
Due to location great for holidays which incorporate walking and cycling. But also very close to Metrocentre and it's wonderful shopping. Also the historical towns of Durham and Hexham within easy reach. (Bus to Hexham nearby also). Loads of pubs and restaraunts within walking distance and city centre within 7 miles (bus stop 5 minutes walk takes around 20 minutes into town).
We are within walking distance of Ryton Willows which is on the banks of the River Tyne and a conservation area for local wildlife.
History of Ryton
Traditionally, Ryton's economy was built upon agriculture and coal mining. Some think that coal-mining was taking place in the area as early as Roman times, however it was not until 1239 when Henry III granted that coal may be mined outside the walls that mining became extensive. The agriculture industry on Ryton was mixed and included both pastoral farming and arable farming.
Ryton soon became a place of migration for the wealthy, who wanted to escape the urban sprawl of the Industrial Revolution in Gateshead and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
A reminder of Ryton's affluent past is found in some of the old mansions at old Ryton village, a place rich in rural qualities because of its proximity to Ryton Willows Local Nature Reserve located on the banks of the Tyne, just past Old Ryton Village. It consists of 43 hectares of grassland, ponds, woodland and locally-rare rare species of flora and fauna. Because of this it has been designated as a site of special scientific interest.
Further up the Tyne Valley, past the village of Crawcrook and into the border of Northumberland, there are rural market towns such as Prudhoe, Corbridge and Hexham.
Other features of Ryton
The earliest record of a church in Ryton is in 1112. However, the oldest surviving church is The Holy Cross church, the oldest building in Ryton, that dates back to 1220.
