Selection of new homes with city and countryside on the doorstep

Situated just over 4 miles east of the historic city of Durham, our new collection of homes at Moorlands Walk in Sherburn, is in a great location. Enjoying fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and with city amenities close at hand, you really do get the best of both worlds.

For a small city Durham has a lot going for it. As well as the famous landmarks of the cathedral and castle, high up above the River Wear, Durham has got great shopping, and plenty of cafés, restaurants and pubs to choose from. There's a thriving indoor and outdoor market, and with the university at its heart, there's a great atmosphere too. From Sherburn, the A690 links to the A1(M) to the north. This is a direct route connecting Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, and Sunderland, making Moorland Walks a convenient place for a new home if you need to commute.
