So my options are-
Northumbria
Bristol UWE
Sheffield Hallam
I know Bristol UWE is the better uni for mechanical engineering however the accommodation prices are extortionate and I prefer the city of Sheffield and Newcastle. Which one would you guys really recommend?

The UWE accommodation seems a bit more expensive but you can still get accommodation in the reasonably priced ~4.5k range. I would say UWE is really quite a lot more respected for engineering than the other two, and you would likely make up any additional costs from summer internship opportunities if that's something you would like to do.

That said, living in a city you don't like for 3-4 years isn't a good idea, and if Bristol (particularly the outskirts of Bristol that you'll be living in as a UWE student) isn't your cup of tea then you should go for one of the others.

I don’t think I could deal without an en-suite and it’s crazy prices for that. It’s quite a distance to the center aswell.

There is some private accommodation in Bristol city centre for about £126 which is quite a bit more than the lowest price £108 en-suites at Sheffield Hallam I'll admit, but it is basically the same price as en-suites at Northumbria, those all start at £119.
