Forest Hall

Recommended Posts

We have found a house we like in Forest Hall. We really don't know this area, but see that it is near Longbenton. Can anyone give me some idea of what it is like there? When you are far away from an area, and look to moving in, as we are from Newcastle, it is difficult to know if a property is worth viewing. Anyone fancy swapping a 4 bedroom house in Gosforth for one in Glastonbury? Its much warmer here!

It kind of depends which bit of Forest Hall, but all of it is certainly nicer than Longbenton.

At the south-east end there's the 'Studley Villas' area, which is a collection of nicer semis and a few detached houses and is mainly populated by families and elderly people. This area is quite desirable, and has the feel of a pleasant suburb. It's a good comprimise now that Benton proper is so expensive

Other bits of FH, west of the shops and across in 'Meadway' aren't quite so nice, but are still a step or two up on Longbenton.

thank you very much tccambs. We were looking at Clousdley Grange (?sp), which had some nice detached houses, but, as with lots of houses after 1980,have small rooms and practically no garden. I love 30s semis and just want to live in an area where people clean their cars, keep their gardens well and don't drink in the streets, near to a Metro, with a decent garden and for under £220000. What do you think of High Heaton, near the hospital? Ohhh it is so difficult being so far away.

Do you mean Clousden Grange? That's right on the border of Forest Hall and Palmersville (futher East), which is substantially less nice than Foggy Hall proper.

High Heaton is very nice for families, but isn't cheap due to its proximity to the Freeman and lacks a metro station.
