Find your perfect new home in Bishops Green
Bishops Green is in Coundon, 2.6 miles outside the market town of Bishop Auckland and just 12 miles south of the historic cathedral city of Durham. A new home here is within easy reach of Bishop Auckland's long high street, and all its independent and high street shops, pubs and eateries.
The town also offers two large supermarkets - an ASDA and a Morrisons - along with pharmacies, banks and two fantastic local markets. Coundon itself is home to several pubs, takeaways, a Sainbury's Local and a dentist. This really is a place you can put down roots and become part of the community. For a wider range of shops and amenities, or to enjoy some nightlife, the cobbled streets and bustling centre of Durham is a quick 20-minute drive north. The university adds to the vibrant life of Durham too, and the Regatta is a highlight of the summer.
