Welcome to The Woodlands

The Marketing Suite is open Thursday-Monday from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

'The Woodlands' is situated on the eastern outskirts of Shotley Bridge in the Derwent Valley, adjoining the town of Consett. For the discerning buyer looking for a dream home, in an idyllic location and offering spectacular views across County Durham's beautiful Derwent Valley, then this stunning new executive development of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom properties, is the obvious choice. Add to this a journey time of less than 30 minutes to the centre of Newcastle and 25 minutes from the A1 and you've got what many would consider the perfect place to live.

Besides fantastic homes, The Woodlands offers easy access to an existing network of footpaths and cycle ways in the Derwent Walk Country Park, which includes a mixture of woodland, meadows, wetlands and riverside. The hillside site has truly stunning views, framed by river valleys and woodland, as far as the northern Pennines. It is also a neighbour to the delightful Derwent Walk. This stretches 11 miles, taking in the old Derwent Valley Railway and following the Derwent Valley between Consett in the south and Swalwell in the north. The development borders Consett and District Golf Club and the exclusive Slaley Hall hotel, spa and golf complex is just 8 miles away. The development also benefits from having good road communications.

The homes being built here will reflect the area and its history incorporating high quality brick and buff stone, the majority of which will be complimented by mid-grey slate roof covering, which is a feature locally. Story Homes design homes where people want to live and they have a well deserved reputation for creating aesthetically pleasing street scenes and for delivering successful community developments.

Local area

As well as the rural living aspect in Shotley Bridge, the area offers local amenities including two pubs, a thriving Italian restaurant, boutique shops and a beauty salon. A doctors' surgery and dental practice are both close by too. The play park and picnic area at Allensford Park are ideal for summer days out with the family. Shotley Bridge has a nursery, infant school and a junior school, with the local high school and college in nearby Consett. Consett has undergone extensive regeneration since the closure of the steel works in 1980 and it has a number of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and a new Academy school.

For those who want to spend their leisure time shopping, Durham and Hexham offer traditional stores. Alternatively, Eldon Square in Newcastle and Gateshead's Metro Centre are within easy reach. Both offer a full shopping experience... from clothes, shoes and cosmetics to books, DVDs and gadgets. For the sport and leisure lovers, swimming baths, a sports centre, tennis club and cricket club are all on the doorstep. Consett also offers golf, football and rugby. Newcastle is famed for horse racing with its popular racecourse only a 20 minute drive away.
