Why make County Durham your home?

County Durham has everything from stunning coastal heritage and country scenery to incredible historic sites and award-winning attractions. Dotted with charming market towns and villages, the jewel in the crown of this wonderful north east county is Durham City, home to the fascinating Durham Cathedral which has stood since the 11th century. Our houses for sale in County Durham also benefit from convenient rail and motorway connections, with the A1(M) running through its heart.

Durham City itself benefits from several incredible heritage sites including the iconic Cathedral, which stands proud next to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Durham Castle - placed in the same categories as the Taj Mahal and Palace of Versailles. You could also treat yourself to a gentle cruise along the two rivers that wind their way alongside Durham’s cobbled streets. You’ll be spoilt for interesting places to discover when you find your new dream home at our property for sale in County Durham.

Outside of the historic city, you could explore Darlington’s fascinating castles, gardens and Railway Museum, or head to the coast and see Hartlepool’s deep maritime history. Or if you’re looking for a breath of fresh air, you’ll find plenty of breath-taking vistas and escapist walks to unwind with; railway paths that span the county, beautiful areas like Hardwick Country park, and a wide array of nature reserves. There’s also Barnard Castle, a wonderful market town – featured in The Guardian’s ’10 of the UK’s best small towns’, where Charles Dickens came to research Nicholas Nickleby.
