New Homes in Coxhoe

Welcome to Coxhoe

Located in County Durham in the North East of England, Coxhoe is a thriving town with lots to see and do in the local area, from historic sights in Durham to beautiful scenery along the Durham Heritage Coast. So whether you love hiking, shopping, playing golf or discovering local history, Coxhoe could be the perfect place for you to set up home.

The history of the area

Coxhoe dates all the way back to the Bronze Age, with the discovery of ancient artefacts in the local area. Although there is evidence of very early settlements, Coxhoe only began to grow during medieval times. Coxhoe Hall was built around 1725, and was the birthplace of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The house was demolished 1952 due to neglect, after being used as a prisoner of war camp during the Second World War.

In the 19th century, Coxhoe Colliery marked a rise in the town’s population, while other employers included a pottery which made tobacco pipes, and a local gas works. Cornforth Colliery, Clarence Hetton Colliery and Bowburn Colliery also opened between 1838 and 1840. Since the closure of the mines in the late 19th century, Coxhoe has become a popular town for commuters to nearby Durham. 

Businesses and industry

Coxhoe itself is a small town, with relatively few employers since the closure of the collieries. Historically industry has been in mining and manufacturing, but today employment is much more varied and includes energy, education and consulting services. In Durham, big businesses include Hargreaves Services, Northumbrian Water Group and The Banks Group, while the prestigious Durham University is also a big employer. Regional employers include Procter and Gamble, PriceWaterhouseCooper and KPMG.
