The Woodlands is located on the outskirts of Shotley Bridge in the Derwent Valley, linking to the town of Consett. If you are looking for your dream home, this is an idyllic location, offering breathtaking views across County Durham’s beautiful Derwent Valley.

The site delivers scenery as far as the northern Pennines. It also neighbours Derwent Walk, an 11 mile stretch of public footway, taking in the old Derwent Valley Railway and following the Derwent Valley between Consett in the south and Swalwell in the north. As well as the scenery and picturesque riverside setting, Shotley Bridge has a long and interesting history to be explored, once having a reputation as the heart of Britain’s sword-making industry.

Although it is growing, the village has stayed true to its rural roots and offers a variety of Gothic architecture and converted mills, alongside a good network of roads and public transport.
