Herrington Grange is ideally located between the cities of Durham and Sunderland, with a number of towns in the vicinity, meaning there's a vast range of shops, facilities and attractions to be found within half an hour of the development. The location is well-suited to families, thanks to the excellent choice of schools nearby. There are plenty of ways to stay active, too - the development is next to the stunning and spacious Herrington Country Park, and the beautiful Durham Heritage Coast is just 20 minutes away.
