"There's is no place quite like it"

I lived in Carrington for two years and could not recommend it enough to all of my friends, co workers and tenants alike. Carrington is a short 5 minute drive to the centre of Newcastle City. It has a small community coastal town feel, the streets are quiet, it is a family friendly safe suburb that is thriving. Carrington has great pubs, that all offer something different, a Japanese kitchen and noodle bar offering Asian Fair and a very popular bowling club that is the locals favourite watering hole in a Sunday afternoon. The suburb that once was an industrial island is now the perfect suburbia for both young professionals and families.
