Durham has a wonderful choice of independent cafes, shops and bars to explore and you can also find cheese, organic meat and seasonal vegetable shops available at Durham's farm shops.
There are a number of main supermarkets nearby including Sainsbury’s and Aldi. As well as this, the Market Hall is located in the heart of Durham, with over 50 independent traders offering a wide range of foods, services and goods.
The city boasts a collection of museums, galleries and tranquil green spaces, including Crook Hall and Gardens or Durham University's Botanic Garden.
There are around 16 high-speed mainline services to Durham from London, covering the journey in about three hours with fast through-trains running from most other parts of Britain.
The A1 motorway provides fast access from the north and south and A66 provides a scenic cross-Pennine route from the Lake District and M6 motorway. Newcastle is less than 18 miles away and Middlesbrough can be reached in just over 30 minutes. Which means this exclusive development is also ideal for those looking throughout the wider area at houses for sale in County Durham, too.
For those not wanting to venture into the city, down the road in Meadowfield you will find a number of essential shops whether you’re looking for a café, butchers or hairdresser.
