Home to the great Angel of the North, one of the biggest shopping centres in Europe, and across the iconic River Tyne from Newcastle is the city of Gateshead.

Village-like suburbs can be found in this bustling city, including the popular Low Fell area. With independent stores to browse, picturesque walking routes to enjoy, community groups to join and a varying selection of bars and restaurants to frequent, the area promises a relaxed atmosphere with the spark of a lively town.

If you’re a lover and supporter of locally-sourced produce, Passion 4 Fruits is a greengrocer which can be found on Low Fell’s main shopping street and gives the option of delivery of fruit and vegetable boxes locally – handy if you’re ever too busy to call in. The store also sells hanging baskets and bedding plants for those with green fingers. For locally-sourced meats, family butcher Northumbrian Heritage Meats opens daily.   

With two florists to choose from, there’s no excuse not to have fresh flowers in your home all-year-round. Both Low Fell Florists and Springfields Florists are located on Durham Road, making them conveniently accessible to stop by for a fresh bunch of your favourite blooms or a gift for a loved one.

The Nest is a friendly café-come community space, offering somewhere to indulge in coffee and cake, as well as enjoy family activities with children. A quiet zone is also available for those who work from home looking for a change of scenery can utilise.

Independent gift store The Dotty House has a collection of bespoke presents for both adults and children, whether for birthdays or special occasions like weddings, christenings and anniversaries. There’s also a beautiful selection of home accessories available.   

Built during WW2, The Little Theatre is a true treasure situated near the leafy Saltwell Park. With regular performances from its resident company Progressive Players, it’s a popular spot for an evening of fun for the whole family to enjoy.

A residential area with something for everyone, Gateshead’s Low Fell is also home to our Park View development. Find out more about the collection of homes available on our website.
