The quaint village of Wingate is home to 5,000 people and has an impressive range of amenities for couples, families and downsizers alike.
Within Wingate itself there are a range of independent shops and restaurants including butchers, florists, pizzerias, pharmacies and even a vinyl record store. Popular shopping destination Dalton Park Outlet is just up the road too. For sport lovers, one of the region’s finest parkland golf courses at Castle Eden is just metres down the road.
You won’t be short for schools, with an infant school, two primary schools and Wellfield Community School all found within the town.
Wingate sits next to the Hart-to-Haswell walkway, a disused railway line designed by George Stephenson to move coal from the Durham coalfield to Hartlepool docks. Heading east, you can also find the picturesque Castle Eden Dene nature reserve which eventually meets the Durham heritage coast.
It is also convenient for commuters, families and those looking to get out and about – with immediate access to the A19. Historic Durham is just 10 miles away, with bustling Newcastle and Middlesbrough both a short drive too.
