Persimmon Homes - Acorn Gardens, DL5
Set in the vibrant town of Newton Aycliffe in County Durham, our new Persimmon Homes development at Acorn Gardens is a great option. Living in this semi-rural setting gives you access to some excellent facilities, as well as to the countryside right on your doorstep.
A new home here will put you halfway between Darlington and Durham and within easy reach of the A1(M) which connects the two. Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Newcastle upon Tyne are all within commuting distance if you need to travel to work. This is a thriving town to call home, with plenty of amenities, a good choice of schools, a great range of shops, and leisure opportunities for all the family.
County Durham balances big cities with big countryside and an impressive coastline. Whether you decide to head for the North Pennines or the North Sea, Acorn Gardens is a well-placed base.
There are some great parks nearby for families to enjoy. St Oswald's Park has a lovely play area and the Hardwick Country Park is good for walks and picnics. The Oakleaf Sports Centre is nearby with badminton courts, a bowls and table tennis amongst the facilities on offer.
As well as a mix of independent and high street shops in its town centre, there are two shopping centres, the Aycliffe Centre and the Thames Shopping Centre. For more shopping options in the area, Newton Aycliffe is situated between Bishop Auckland, Stockton-on-Tees and Darlington, each with a great choice of shopping centres and supermarkets.
Newton Aycliffe is halfway between the coast and the North Pennines. The A1(M) is the motorway that serves the north-east and there is an excellent network of A roads to link you to the towns throughout the county.
