We take a look at some of the best current new homes developments in towns in Northumberland...

Northumberland is a county in the North East of England, bordering Scotland and the North Sea. 

Northumberland is steeped in history, and around a quarter of the county forms the Northumberland National Park, stretching south from the Scottish border, and includes Hadrian’s Wall, and it is an area of landscape that has been protected from development. The Northumberland Coast is also a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are a number of developers building new homes in the towns of Northumberland…


The historic market town of Morpeth is the main town in Northumberland. Combining traditional market town charm with modern high streets and shopping centres, it has something for everyone.

The town is well connected, with Morpeth train station just half a mile from the town centre. The station is served by the East Coast Line, connecting residents with Edinburgh, Newcastle and London.
