A guide to living at Lambton Park

A guide to living at Lambton Park

Lambton Park will be home to an exclusive community of 109 new homes, a hidden gem in the North East which is part of an exciting redevelopment programme. Buyers who purchase a property on the luxury development aren’t just residents, they’re becoming part of a community which benefits from exclusive access and more.

So, what’s so great about living at Lambton Park, and what makes it special?

It’s the first redevelopment the Estate has seen, and as a heritage site, the Estate and its surroundings hold years and years of history, as well as being home to the famous Lambton Castle. Designed by renowned architect and interior designer Ben Pentreath, the homes balance the Estate’s heritage with modern day living.

Here’s what living at Lambton Park has to offer...

What’s on the estate

Residents of Lambton Park have access to approximately 11km of seasonal walks across the Estate which offer views of its hidden treasures, including Lambton Castle, the old racecourse, Lamb Bridge, woodland scenery and open parkland. The walks are open year-round to residents of the Estate, and will reopen in spring 2021 to the general public.

The Estate is also due to create a new community hub adjacent to the homes, known as Bowes Gate. The complex is set to offer a traditional high street of local shops which could include a café, bakery, delicatessen, butcher, grocer, Estate farm shop, florist, pharmacy, convenience store, hairdresser/beauty salon and office space. All within walking distance from the homes – perfect for shopping from local independent businesses.

Transport links

Offering both seclusion and convenience, Lambton Park is located in the perfect area of the North East, surrounded by landscapes and beauty. The location alone would be a dream for any homeowner who loves a combination of countryside, coastal and city living.

The Estate is just two miles from the A1 motorway and near to Chester-le-Street and the neighbouring Durham City Centre, making it a welcome retreat to return home to every day. It also has excellent transport links to Durham, Newcastle and Sunderland. 

The closest railway station is Chester-le-Street, just three miles from Lambton Park, with regular and accessible links to Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester, as well as the Metrocentre shopping mall in Gateshead. The local Connections4 bus service runs every ten minutes between Houghton-le-Spring and Heworth Metro Station, which stops just a few yards from Lambton Park. 

What’s nearby

Lambton Estate is a beautiful area full of large open spaces, woodland, wildlife and nature, and better still it’s just three miles away from the towns and shops in Chester-le-Street, Houghton-le-Spring and Washington, which offer a choice of retailers, pubs, cafés and restaurants.

There are many local amenities for the whole family to enjoy, from Herrington Country Park (less than one mile away) with its many cycle routes, adventure playground and wildlife, to Seaham Hall and Serenity Spa (around eight miles away), Riverside Park (two miles away) and Beamish open-air museum (less than six miles away).

Within a 20-minute walk you’ll find some handy shops and services, including a post office, a pharmacy, a dentist and a medical centre.
