Five reasons to relocate to a Story home in Northumberland

August 2019

At our Chancel Place development in the village of Longhoughton, north Northumberland, many of our residents have relocated from other areas of the UK.

Filled with 80 miles of unspoilt beaches, 1200 miles of walking routes, 7 ancient castles and friendly market towns, the popularity of this location is no surprise; Northumberland was even named ‘Best UK Holiday County/ Destination’ in the 2018 British Travel Awards.

Just over a quarter of homes remain at Chancel Place so, if you’re dreaming of a more peaceful pace of life, here are five reasons why you should consider a Story home in Northumberland.

Reason #1: Escape to a picturesque and tranquil location. Chancel Place is in a rural setting with lots of open green space surrounding the development and no other developers building next door, so you can relax away from the hustle and bustle.

Reason #2: Experience the best of town, coast and countryside. Longhoughton is just five miles from the market town of Alnwick, walking distance from the beach, and a stone’s throw from the beautiful Northumberland countryside.

Reason #3: Indulge your love of outdoor pursuits or take the opportunity to try new ones. With the countryside and coastline so close by, there are so many activities you can try, from walking to kayaking and paddle boarding.

Reason #4: Connectivity to key travel routes. The nearby A1 and A1068 provide excellent links to Alnwick, Newcastle, Berwick, Morpeth and further afield. Alnmouth Station is a short drive away from Chancel Place and from there you can take advantage of direct services to Newcastle, Edinburgh, Leeds and London King’s Cross.

Reason #5: All the amenities you need in nearby Alnwick. From a range of independent retailers and supermarkets to summer events and top attractions such as Alnwick Castle, there’s plenty to keep you entertained if you ever want a break from the peace and quiet.

With all of this waiting for you in Northumberland, plus the quality and beauty of our homes, Chancel Place is a great option for those relocating. Whether you’re an individual or couple looking to retire in a picture-perfect location, a family who loves the outdoors, or professionals wanting a better work/life balance, there is a home at Chancel Place to suit you, with a range of four and five-bedroom homes available.
