Embla is a unique luxury two bedroom self catering apartment. With free unlimited Wi-Fi

There is undercover private parking for one vehicle.

Situated just a few hundred meters from the glorious parks and golden beaches of South Shields. This beautiful apartment in a quiet area has easy access to the neighboring cities of Durham, York, Sunderland and Newcastle.

Embla is unique as you don't have a neighbor upstairs or downstairs.

The apartment is close to wonderful restaurants, shops, golf courses, riding stables, tennis courts and much much more.

South Shields is a jewel in the North East's crown and largely undiscovered, so therefore not teeming with tourists, Cycling, bird watching, visiting historic sites, gorgeous villages and not forgetting the wonderful moorland villages of Northumberland and Durham are all within easy driving distance.

The apartment has two flat screen TVs with freeview. IPOD docking station, Espresso coffee maker.

Outside seating in a small patio / garden.

10 hours of Central heating is included each day, 7am to 10am and 4pm to 11pm. Guests who would like different hours of heating please let us know before arrival(heating is not provided during June, July and August).

The apartment is situated in a family neighborhood, we therefore do not accept hen / stag parties or young singles.
