A new kind of coastal living
This new waterside neighbourhood on the banks of the Tyne is surrounded by natural scenery, but is just a stone’s throw from the city centre. Inspired by the world’s best coastal communities, it’s quickly establishing itself as a great place to live and work. The quayside is already a thriving community, with a range of independent shops, cafés and restaurants. Several companies have also moved in and made their homes in the commercial properties at Smokehouses.
Smith’s Dock has a proud industrial heritage, but for three decades it’s lain quiet. Now the quays and docks have new purpose and are taking back their place at the heart of the community, creating a link between the historic Fish Quays to the north and Royal Quays to the south.
Smith’s Dock gives you the best in modern, modular homes, as well as green space, fresh air and scenic views. It looks out over the Tyne and sits in beautiful landscape, from the rolling hills of North Shields to the rolling waves of Tynemouth Longsands.
There are few better places to live than beside the sea. It helps to balance serotonin levels and improve wellbeing. The ocean can inspire creative thinking, boost energy and reduce anxiety, so make your new home on the waterside and enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Meet the neighbours
Ian and Lynne
We’re not originally from the area, but it certainly appeals. It’s an industrial coast with a working history, and industry still remains in the area. I like the fact I can live somewhere so modern and forward thinking but in an area steeped with history.
A location second to none
North Shields is one of the most friendly, happy, neighbourly places to live. Recently recognised around the country for its community spirit and innovation (check out the isolation disco) this is a special place to call home.
You’ll find Smith’s Dock right on the waterfront between Fish Quay to the north, and Royal Quays to the south. It’s close to historic Tynemouth and puts Newcastle within easy commuting distance.
