Village Farm is located in the quaint former mining village of Murton in County Durham. The village is between the coastal town of Seaham and the city of Durham which is located 20 minutes west of the site. 

Seaham offers all the amenities expected of a large settlement including supermarkets, leisure centres, cinemas, hospitals and high street shops, while Durham’s ancient past offers cultural activities such as Durham Cathedral and further education at the world-renowned Durham University. 

Residents at Village Farm will benefit from the Village Inn, a local pub, bistro and beer garden only 150 yards away from the entrance to the site. The path which leads to the pub runs adjacent to the well-manicured village green which adds to the countryside feel of the place, despite its close proximity to towns and cities. The village also benefits from a Premier convenience store within walking distance and Dalton Park retail and outlet centre within a 5-minute drive. 



Village Farm offers excellent travel links both north towards Newcastle and the Northumbria Coastline via the A19 and A1 and the South towards Leeds and Sheffield via the A1(M) southbound. 

Rail connections are available between Edinburgh and London Kings Cross on the LNER East Coast Main Line from Durham Station (9.7 miles) and domestic and international flights are widely available from Newcastle International Airport. (28 miles)

Further information


The payment process for a self or custom built home is different to the purchase of a traditional new build property – which you pay for once it is built.

As your home at Village Farm will be a bespoke design for you and your individual requirements, you will purchase your home at various stages of the build process. BuildStore Mortgage Services are on hand to arrange the most suitable funding option for you. As the UK’s leading self and custom build expert, they have financed over 20,000 building projects for people creating their own home. That is a lot of dreams being made!
