Brookside children's home was a care home for children in Pottiswood, Newcastle upon Tyne. It is the care home in which Series 4 of Tracy Beaker Returns is based. until. It is the successor to Elmtree House, and the predecessor to Ashdene Ridge.

Just like Elmtree House and all other care homes prior to, (excluding Ashdene Ridge), all the children and adults who lived and/or worked there have left, and it is unknown as to what condition the building is in now.


In Summer 2012, Frank, Liam, Toni, Billie, Anne, Ryan, Chloe, Leo, Holly & Amy move to Brookside after leaving Elmtree House. Peggy, T.J and Trixy - feisty, rebellious siblings - move to Brookside on the same day as the other residents & terrorized them. They constantly put Ron’s job at risk and tried to get Brookside closed down. A wild boy named Wolfie moves in to Brookside & refuses to go inside & prefers outdoors.

Gina leaves after being offed a higher paying job to help with her mother's dementia, at the same time as Anne leaves for a running academy and Liam and Frank leave for their new apartments, and there is a party for the four of them. After this, Ashdene Ridge replaces Brookside.
