Where We Are

Old Ryton Village

The Cross

Often considered to be the prettiest village on Tyneside, Ryton in the early 19th century was a popular residential area for wealthy Newcastle businessmen and merchants.
Traditionally, Ryton’s economy was built on coal-mining and agriculture. Today, the area is a largely affluent one, attracting city professionals who want the benefit of a rural retreat, but one that’s not too far from the thriving city centre of Newcastle.
Set on a steep, richly wooded bank, seven miles west from Newcastle, the area is surrounded by magnificent countryside. Since the mines closed in the early 1960s, the village has been well landscaped to accommodate light industries in a leafy and largely attractive setting. There are fine mansions set within wooded grounds, several handsome terraces and villas.
Ryton also benefits from good public transport links with a regular bus service to Crawcrook, Prudhoe and Hexham to the west and the MetroCentre, Gateshead and Newcastle to the east.
