Wolsingham is a thriving commuter market town situated approximately 14 miles west of Durham, set within the heart of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is popularly known as “The Gateway to Weardale”. The settlement itself dates back to the Saxon era and retains many points of historical interest; the current town is predominantly situated within a conservation area, with many period properties thus the traditional charm is retained.
The village strikes an ideal balance between the desirable life-style situation, benefiting from a tranquil, relaxed, semi-rural location with numerous outdoor pursuits readily on hand and the fantastic backdrop of the surrounding fells and moorland, together with the accessible location meaning that the dynamic city attractions of both Durham and Newcastle are within a short travelling distance. International Airports at both Newcastle and Durham Tees Valley offer both national and international travel and are both accessible within one hour’s drive. Mainline railway links are also available within the locality, meaning that the village is ideally suited for the commuter.
