Cliff House, Cullercoats

  • Description

    "Cliff House is one of the oldest and most attractive buildings in Cullercoats and dates from 1768. The builder and first owner of the house was Thomas Armstrong, a commander of His Majesty’s Cutter, 'Bridlington'. It was alleged he helped smugglers escape, which may help account for his grandiose house. Close to here was the site of the Bank Top studio (now demolished) of the famous American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910)."
