Sherburn Village

Situated in pretty open countryside to the east of Durham, Sherburn Village is pleasantly rural and ideal for anyone looking for a slower place of life. That’s not to say there isn’t a busy village vibe - your new home in Sherburn has a couple of village shops, a GP surgery, a primary school and a choice of village pubs. It’s just the right size to become a part of the community and getting to know your neighbours.

The beautiful seaside town of Seaham on the Durham Heritage Coast is just 12 miles away, offering great seafood, scenic walks and family fun. While the cathedral city of Durham is only four miles to the West of your new home, offering all the shopping, culture and nights out you can think of!

Living in Sherburn Village

Your new house, close to good schools

Your new home in Sherburn Village has the Giant Steps nursery and Sherburn Primary School for small people. Children aged 11-16 can attend the Belmont Community School - or for children with special needs, the Elemore Hall School. For independent schools, head to Durham High School for Girls, Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation and The Independent Grammar School:Durham - which 100% of parents would recommend!

A day out in Durham

Your new build home in Sherburn Village has the city of Durham right on its doorstep - so you'll have the pick of the pubs, cafés and restaurants for an evening out. Spend time on or by the river - especially during the regatta, explore the cobbled streets around the cathedral and castle, try some of the food on offer in the market square and watch the world go by. The Odeon Luxe Durham is a great backup for a rainy day. Your new build property is close to a number of leisure centres, or for a bit of a treat, you could become a member of the Bannantyne Health Club & Spa.
