New Homes in Hartlepool

Located in County Durham, Hartlepool is a port town with a historic past that’s now transformed into a thriving and vibrant modern place to live. Whether visiting the Headland of Old Hartlepool, relaxing with a long walk along miles of unspoilt beaches or spending some time at Hartlepool Marina there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy close to your new home in Hartlepool.

Things to see and do

To really delve into the history of Hartlepool, you can make it a fun-filled family day out at Hartlepool Historic Quay. Located in the multi-million-pound Hartlepool Marina, you’ll find the award winning National Museum of the Royal Navy –  a reproduction of an 18thcentury seaport and HMS Trincomalee – the oldest British Warship still afloat.

The history continues with a trip to Old Hartlepool, the original fishing village location of the town and the historic Headland. Here you’ll find attractions such as Heugh Gun Battery, the Heugh Lighthouse, the Town Wall and St. Hilda’s Church.

If you or your family want to make the most of the great outdoors close to your new home in Hartlepool you won’t be spoilt for choice with the Tees and Hartlepool Foreshore and Wetlands, the Saltholme Wildlife Reserve and Discovery park, the nearby seaside resort of Seaton Carew and miles of unspoilt beaches to explore.

In the town, opportunities for retail therapy centre on Middleton Grange Shopping Centre and the marina while the number of cafes and restaurants continues to grow with the town’s status as a tourist destination. Hartlepool Art Gallery is also a great way to spend a day with the family.


Hartlepool has a number of primary and secondary schools rated Outstanding by Ofsted including Sacred Heart RC Primary School, Stranton Primary School, Springwell School, Eldon Grove Academy, St. Bega’s RC Primary School, Hart Primary School, and Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School.
