Welcome to Ochre Yards

New phase launching June 2017 – contact our sales team for further information


Ochre Yards is a modern apartment complex, situated on the south bank of the River Tyne, overlooking the river and its famous quayside.

Since work first began on the site back in 2003, Ochre Yards has grown into a prime location for young professionals and commuters wanting to make the most of all that Newcastle's vibrant city centre has to offer, combined with close proximity to tranquil open spaces and a relatively secluded location.

This development offers city centre living with allocated parking spaces and private balconies attached to many of the properties.

This development lies within a mile of Newcastle city centre, with its renowned selection of bars, restaurants, and high-street shops, providing the perfect cosmopolitan experience, right on your doorstep.

Ochre Yards is ideally placed for commuting into Newcastle, Gateshead, or further afield, with excellent transport links on hand. Newcastle's iconic road, rail, and pedestrian bridges provide quick and easy routes over the river, while Gateshead's nearby town centre is easy to reach on foot or by road.

Gateshead Metro Station is just a short walk (0.5 miles) away, offering an alternative route into town, to the region's traditional coastal areas, Newcastle International Airport, Sunderland and many other places.

Despite its proximity to both Newcastle and Gateshead's centres, the Tyne's south bank offers locals an almost unrivalled collection of tranquil green spaces.

The Riverside Sculpture Park stretches half a mile along the river, while Gateshead has no less than three Green Flag destinations, including Saltwell Park, with its maze and tennis courts – a two time winner of 'Best park in Britain'.

About The Quayside

At Ochre Yards, the vibrant city centre of Newcastle, with its dazzling array of shops, restaurants and bars is just a stone's throw away.

Further south, the famous MetroCentre houses 300 shops, including big names from Topshop to Marks and Spencer, in the second-largest retail mall in the UK. Once inside this sprawling complex, you won't ever find yourself short of things to do, with an IMAX cinema, 20 lane bowling alley, and over 50 restaurants contained within its walls.

And your local music venue, just a brief stroll away, is the internationally renowned Sage Music Centre - all curvy glass, steel, and acoustic excellence; housing five bars, a café and brasserie down by the Millennium Bridge.

In addition, The BALTIC Centre is one of the largest contemporary spaces for the arts in Europe and reguarly attracts exhibitions from the world's artistic elite.

You can tone up - and more - at the LivingWell Health Club and Gym, or visit Gateshead Leisure Centre’s swimming pools, the Tranquillity Spa, or 'Choices' fitness gym and squash courts. But if that sounds like too much effort, you can always watch the professionals at Gateshead International Stadium, host to rugby league fixtures and a venue for top level International Athletics - perfect for recapturing a bit of that Olympic spirit..

If you're looking for open space, the Riverside Sculpture Park stretches half a mile along the south bank and plays host to some monumental art, while Gateshead has no less than three Green Flag status destinations, including Saltwell Park, offering summer days out amongst the heady scents of the rose garden or in front of the traditional bandstand.

Derwent Walk Country Park is an oasis of greenery amongst the Derwent Valley, with ancient natural woodlands and meadows, teeming with carpets of wood anemones in spring, birdsong in summer, and wildlife including woodpeckers and deer. For the adventurous and energetic there are also several circular trails for walking and cycling.

Gateshead and Newcastle are linked by several road, rail and pedestrian bridges and, heading out, the road network is excellent, with Newcastle Airport just 8 miles away, while the Metro system is superb - enabling you to reach the airport or the area’s coastal towns all on one system.
