Staying at the 3 star Little Haven Hotel

As well as being the oldest and largest town in South Tyneside, South Shields is also one of the region’s most popular seaside resorts. The area markets itself as Catherine Cookson Country, which attracts many visitors. Come with us to The Mouth of the Tyne as we make this our base for our tour. When you think of South Shields, many people think of a built up industrious area, you will be pleasantly surprised with the beautiful beach and promenades. Our hotel is superbly located where the Mouth of the River Tyne meets the sea. Watch the cargo vessels, the cruise ships and overnight ferries saunter back and forth from their dock in Newcastle, it feels like you can put your hand out and push them away
