North East England is a truly unsung gem as far as golfing breaks are concerned

In many ways, it’s surprising that the North East isn’t mentioned more often whenever the subject of golf weekends in England comes up. After all, the region does border the legendary ‘home of golf’ itself – Scotland – so is it possible that many of us have been unjustly overlooking the North East’s own ample golfing charms down the years?

The short answer to that question is: yes! In fact, we’re well aware of the delights of golfing in North East England here at findagolfbreak.com, which is why you’ll find various leading golf resorts in this fantastic but underrated part of Britain represented on our website.

Nor is it only the sporting action itself that gives you good reason to consider a weekend’s break at a golf hotel in the North East.

So much more than affordability and a warm welcome of golf breaks near Newcastle

OK, let’s get some of the stereotypes out of the way before we go any further. Yes, the sheer warmth of the North East’s hospitality is not a mere myth – you really will find it easier to strike up a conversation with a stranger here than you would anywhere else, whether in the towns, cities and hotels themselves or as you make your way around your chosen course.

The North East also represents excellent value among golf weekends in England, and we’ve worked hard to strengthen that value still further with our selection of featured hotels on findagolfbreak.com.

One adjective that no longer accurately describes the North East as it once did, though, is “grim”. Yes, this part of the country may have been an industrial heartland for hundreds of years, particularly in relation to coal mining, but it’s not the grimy dockyards or sooty pits that represent the region these days. Instead, you’ll find vibrant shopping, cultural and recreational opportunities across such happening towns and cities as Durham, Sunderland, Gateshead and Newcastle.

Newcastle, in particular, positively gleams with its spectacularly transformed quayside – and much the same can be said of the similarly rejuvenated Gateshead, which boasts world-leading arts venues like BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Sage Gateshead. All of this is without even touching on the fabled Geordie nightlife or the plentiful fine dining also now served up in the North East.

Plus, when it comes to landscapes that are by turns breathtakingly picturesque, ruggedly rural and even industrial on occasion, you can’t beat the variety that golf breaks in this region offer.

What’s more, when you book your holiday through findagolfbreak.com, you can be sure of getting the very best price for what will almost certainly be an immensely rewarding break.

Nightlife info

The Diamond Strip – trendy, suave and expensive. With ‘diamond’ denoting its exclusivity; these upmarket and cool bars and clubs attract Newcastle’s VIPs – celebrities, the Geordie Shore crew, footballers and their adoring female fans and it is the place to see and be seen. These bars attract a mature crowd and while they’re not exclusively student-free, you wouldn’t get into any of these bars with a pair of Converse trainers and ironic spectacles.

Just a minutes’ walk from Central Station, the main Diamond Strip is set on Collingwood Street and extends to a couple of bars on Mosley Street. The bars are united by their bohemian-luxe interiors and sultry, seductive atmospheres – exposed brickwork, lavish décor and plush ornate sofas in cosy little corners. Florita’s is a highlight – with sexy art-deco and an exotic drinks menu. Madame Koo is like Florita’s darker, dirtier sister – dimly lit with red lanterns and leather booths. Revolution is a vodka bar set in a luxurious former bank with 30ft ceilings and marble pillars, and Perdu is a boutique lounge with a ‘secret garden’, where you can book booths or beds (depending on where the night takes you). You’ve also got Bijoux, Tup Tup Palace and House of Smith to stumble into.

You’ve probably heard of Newcastle’s Bigg Market – its reputation precedes it for a reason. It has its place on a certain sort of night out, as long as you know what you’re in for – but don’t head here if you’re after civilised G&Ts or sophisticated surroundings. However, sometimes you want somewhere that doesn’t take itself seriously – somewhere the drinks are cheap and cheerful, and you can abandon inhibition, dance unashamedly to nostalgic tunes and channel the days of your youth.

Cosy Joe's welcomes fancy dress, and is a cracking place to start a stag night. They have a karaoke bar upstairs, ‘tequila time’, and ‘party-pods’ that you can book for your group with a push-button drinks service. The Bigg Market also boasts Filthy’s – with an outdoor beer terrace, live music and a rowdy atmosphere every night of the week. Opposite Filthy’s is the German Beir Keller – where you can channel your inner Bavarian and get tanked up on steins. Mushroom Bar, just around the corner, is super popular as they offer really cheap trebles.

This awesome area of Newcastle and Gateshead surrounds the picturesque River Tyne – which has become the city’s epicenter for modern arts, music and culture. However, at night, Newcastle Quayside, comes to life with upmarket and trendy bars, set against the mesmerizing riverfront and combines its party atmosphere with epic views. The Pitcher and Piano is by far the most popular venue here, for both its stylish glass-walled building and its proximity to the spectacular Millennium Bridge, which is illuminated at night with changing coloured lights.

Livello is a few minutes’ walk up the bank and is a swanky bar that our very own Cheryl Cole has been known to frequent. But fear not, there are lots of fantastic options for us mere mortals too. They have a no-fancy dress policy, so keep this in mind if you’re dressed up – inflatable penises will not be well received here (weird). The Bridge Tavern is one of those new ultra-cool venues with exposed brickwork and an onsite micro-brewery - it takes itself a bit seriously, but in a good way. They pride themselves on quality, so it’s excellent for swanky drinks and proper beer and it has a stylish outdoor terrace directly underneath the Tyne Bridge.
