The Area
Historically, until the early 1800’s, Seaham was a small agricultural community. The area’s fortune took an upward turn when the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry bought up the Millbank Estate and built the harbour to enable export of local produce. Later, after 1845 the first coal mining activity was recorded and the harbour was significantly extended to cope with the volume of coal being exported. This was opened in 1905 and now evokes particular interest as it has a series of interconnecting locks rather than the typical two wall construction.

The harbour wall is a sought after spot for keen sea fishermen and numerous rock pools are scattered along the coast line for explorers, adults and children alike. The beaches have undergone an extensive restoration process and are now returned to their former glory following designation as a Heritage Coast. The Durham Coastal Footpath is a superb 11 mile walking route from Seaham to Crimdon leading through stunning clifftop scenery.

There are convenient local facilities including a shopping centre, Byron’s Way and all other necessities such as doctors, dentists and legal services. Within 10 minutes by car is the Virgin Active’s Wearside Health & Racket Club and Silksworth Leisure Centre which incorporates a dry ski slope, athletics track, Astro turf sports pitch and fishing lakes.

The town is serviced by a railway station which provides links along the east coast from Middlesbrough to Newcastle and a local bus service travels to the majority of the regions towns. Bus stops are conveniently located at the end of the farm entrance (northbound and southbound), whilst there are also excellent travel links to most destinations in the UK and Europe from Newcastle International and Durham Tees Valley airports which makes the property ideal for commuters.
