Ulgham Morpeth house for sale

Who spotted Morpeth and Newcastle on Location, Location, Location last night?⁠ 

Morpeth has always been a popular location here in the North East but has seen an even greater rise in interest over the past year or two. Recently voted as one of The Best Places to Live in 2022, The Sunday Times commented “Morpeth neatly bridges the gap between convenience and country living, between splendid isolation and clubbable community. Convenience, countryside and cut-price trains to the capital — this market town is a corker”⁠

Rosie Spours, Branch Manager and Valuer based in our Alnwick office states: “As with many of the pretty Northumberland market towns, demand for properties is high in Morpeth. The schools have very good reputations, commuting to Newcastle and further afield is made straight forward by the town’s East Coast Mainline station with regular trains both North and South, accompanied by easy access to the A1. Possibly the perfect compromise between city and countryside family living! ⁠
It’s always worth expanding your search parameters as towns like Morpeth are also surrounded by slightly more rural village locations offering you more, such as Pegswood, Hepscott and Ulgham. If you’re from outside of the area and not sure where to start your search all our offices are staffed by local people who will be happy to offer you expert guidance and information.”⁠
