Wayside Point

Combining contemporary design with unrivalled luxury, Wayside Point comprises 99 properties across its first phase. The prestigious development features homes to suit every customer’s needs, comprising 14 two-bed apartments, four two-bed bungalows, 15 two-bed houses, 30 three-bed townhouses, 18 three-bed detached houses and 18 four-bed detached houses.

Each home is exquisitely styled, inside and out, with high class specification, finishing and balanced use of space, with the attention of detail extending to the professionally landscaped development.

Situated in the picturesque village of Ellington, Wayside Point is located on the site of the former Ellington Colliery, which was the last operational deep mine in the North East before it closed in 2005. The development seamlessly combines striking modern property design with the peaceful rural Northumberland landscape, and with the coast just a few minutes away, it is ideal for those wanting their cake and to eat it too.


Even before Ellington Colliery was sunk in 1909, the area along Lynemouth road where the development now sits was known as WAYSIDE.

However, the name also relates to the areas rich mining heritage with 'Way' referring to the name given the tracks that the mining cars run on, whilst 'Side' or siding was the track that connected the mine to the national rail network.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

The coastal village of Ellington is the quintessential Northumberland picture postcard location. Steeped in history, both modern and from times passed, Ellington takes its name from the Saxon word meaning ‘descendants of Ella’ and was first recorded as a village in 1240 - it is however more famous for being the location of the North East’s last working deep coal mine, which closed its doors in 2005 having operated for nearly 100 hundred years. As well as significant historic meaning, it also represents a place high in natural beauty with a stunning coastline and beach just a few miles away.

Whilst a growing and fast developing area, Ellington still possesses its village charm and local amenities can still be found central to village life. It is also well placed to travel further afield with good transport links to larger and more well equipped towns, such as Ashington and Morpeth, which are four and six miles away respectively, plus the coastal resorts of Cresswell and Newbiggin-on-Sea.

Transport Links

Situated just seven miles from the main A1 road, the big city lights of Newcastle (20 miles) are easily reached. The main East Coast railway link between Edinburgh (journey time approximately 1hr:15mins) and London (journey time approximately 3hr:30mins) runs via the nearby Morpeth Station, with a weekday service of nine trains per day north to Edinburgh and around 15 trains per day south to London. Plus Glasgow can be reached in around 2hr:30mins. For those wanting to travel further afield, Newcastle Aiport is just 30 minutes by car.
