About Lambton Park

The main entrance into Lambton Park will be a truly outstanding feature, creating a magnificent gateway into our new development of one, two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Entirely bespoke, these new homes include design features such as red brick detailing, sash windows and decorative ridge tiles all inspired by existing residential properties on the Estate.

The formation and character of these new homes is of upmost importance in providing a unique and thoughtfully designed space for a new community to grow with a sympathetic nod to the estates picturesque, natural heritage.

Imagine driving home each day through a breathtaking framed entrance combining decorative brick with ornate pillars designed to create an impressive sense of arrival. Wide planted verges and stunning mature trees provide a pedestrian friendly, leafy environment showcasing how architecture and landscape successfully interact.

Designed by renowned architect and interior designer Ben Pentreath, in keeping with the heritage of the estate, the overall project was granted planning consent for new homes, offices, retail and community space. The development scheme will fund the conservation works across Lambton Park and will include the restoration of Lambton Castle and its stables, as well as the iconic Lamb Bridge.

When you call Lambton Park home, you wont have to travel miles to enjoy extensive scenery and woodland as you will be able to access and enjoy 15km of public footpaths for walking and cycling benefiting from unrivaled views, in what has previously been a private park. The first of these, a forty five minute walk adjacent to the River Wear with views over to Lambton Castle. Guided walks are available for you to experience by prior appointment.

Members of this growing community will be able to enjoy tours of the Park to enjoy its history and wildlife. There will also be regular sporting and social events, which will evolve with the community as it expands over time.
