Chester-le-Street

Chester-le-Street

Elegantly blended into the countryside, the quiet and charming market town of Chester-le-Street in County Durham, was listed in The Sunday Times best places to live 2016. It’s known for its beautiful 14th century castle, historic churches, and world class sporting and music venue, the Durham Emirates Cricket Ground.


Its location, only seven miles from the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne and eight miles from Sunderland, makes it ideal for commuters or those who just want a city break on their doorstep.


Residents and tourists alike can also enjoy meandering through the stalls at the vibrant Chester-le-Street market which opens regularly throughout the week. They can also enjoy the fresh air at the pretty Riverside Park, which is great for jogging, splashing about in its paddling pool or relaxing in its artist-designed ornamental gardens.


Chester-le-Street is overlooked by the stunning Lumley Castle, now a luxury hotel. Its picturesque cricket ground and the popular Chester Le Street Golf Club, which meanders along the banks of the River Wear and surrounding mature woodland, provide fantastic options for sporting enthusiasts.
