Hurworth on Tees
A Spar shop 600 yards from the development provides post office services, groceries, off-licence sales, fresh produce, a bakery and a deli counter. Local amenities include two traditional inns, the Bay Horse and the Otter and Fish, and the Mustard Tree Café. Hurworth Grange Community Centre hosts a wide range of activities from youth groups to dance, snooker and walking clubs, as well as jazz and quiz nights. Other classes, including yoga, Pilates and art, are held in the Village Hall, which also presents music, amateur drama and film screenings. There are endless opportunities for walking and cycling in the surrounding countryside and, in addition to a superb golf course, the village’s five star Rockcliffe Hall Hotel has luxurious spa facilities, an excellent fitness suite and a choice of two bars and three restaurants.
The village primary school, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, converted to Academy status in 2012, and both it and the local secondary, Hurworth School, are within fifteen minutes’ walk of the development. Most students move on to one of the sixth form colleges in Darlington. Health services, including Hurworth Dental Practice and a full-time medical practice at Rockcliffe Court Surgery with an adjacent pharmacy, can also be found less than a mile away.
The trip into Darlington opens up a wide and cosmopolitan choice of shops, leisure and cultural amenities. The compact shopping environment includes more than 500 retailers, over half of them independent traders, as well as a Victorian covered market, while Morton Park, to the east, houses a selection of larger stores including a Morrisons Supermarket. The town centre, home to some of the country’s most exciting public art, includes the celebrated Darlington Theatre, a three screen cinema, live music and comedy venues and an excellent choice of restaurants, pubs and cafés, all within easy reach of Hurworth Hall Farm.
