Enjoy the best of all worlds with a new home at Herrington Grange
Herrington Grange is ideally located between the cities of Durham and Sunderland, with a number of towns in the vicinity, meaning there’s a vast range of shops, facilities and attractions to be found within half an hour of the development. The location is well-suited to families, thanks to the excellent choice of schools nearby along with the local country park, wetlands, and the beautiful Durham Heritage Coast just 20 minutes away.
For day-to-day amenities you’ll find a convenience store and several takeaways within walking distance, while a six-minute drive south will take you to the bustling town of Houghton-le-Spring and its high street packed with shops, supermarkets, banks and eateries. Seven minutes in the other direction you’ll find Washington, home to several schools, a leisure centre, and the Galleries Shopping Centre. All other retail needs are sure to be met in either Durham, a beautiful city awash with culture and historic architecture, or in Sunderland, a port city with a great arts and culture scene.
The development is just a short walk from Herrington Country Park, a fantastic local attraction including walking and bike trails, a play park, ponds and restaurant. Also nearby are Washington wetlands, a WWT site sheltering otters and many species of birds, where you can enjoy a picnic in the peaceful grounds. Another attraction well worth a visit is Penshaw Monument, a magnificent National Trust site which sits just five minutes from the development. And for summer days, you could make the short trip to Seaham Beach, or slightly further down to the magnificent Durham Heritage Coast.
