North Farm Elwick, was once a thriving and busy working farm at the heart of the village, but is now largely redundant. Access to the farmsteading is directly off Elwick Road and this leads through to the adjoining farm land to the north and east of the steading.

The main farmsteading includes the original Georgian two storey farmhouse with views onto the Main Street, together with a range of traditional brick and stone outbuildings; barns; stores and cow byres, arranged around a central courtyard. There are a number of other more modern agricultural buildings and implement stores including a large portal steel framed building extending to approximately 9,000 sqft (850 sqm).

The farmhouse itself requires complete refurbishment and modernisation. The farmsteading has the benefit of full planning permission for Change of Use and Alterations of some of the older traditional brick and stone built buildings, together with demolition of the remainder, to create 14 dwellings and new vehicular access.

The farmsteading benefits from a Detailed Planning Consent granted on 19th March 2010 for ‘Change of use, alterations, extensions and new build to create 14 dwellings and creation of a new vehicular access’. Application No. H/2008/0026. A further application for an Extension of Time for that planning consent was granted on 4th April 2016. Reference H/2014/0579. The consent was granted subject to various conditions detailed in the Decision Notice, a copy of which is available on request, or to download from the Fordy Marshall website.

The additional land to the north is identified in the Local Plan Publication Draft as a new housing allocation Reference HSG7 for approximately 35 dwellings.

Within the Draft Plan the farmsteading is identified as falling within a Conservation Area (Policy HE3).

Location & Situation

The site is situated at the north eastern edge of Village. It enjoys a generally open aspect to north and borders the end of the Village Green to the south west.
The Village of Elwick is located in County Durham, approximately 1 mile to the east of the A19 and 4 miles west of Hartlepool. The proximity of the A19 puts the village within a sensible commuting distance of either Newcastle to the North or Teesside to the South.

This attractive village has retained its aura of rural charm with a pleasant mixture of old, new and renovated properties around the Village Green helping to give the area its ‘picture postcard’ appearance much favoured by local artists. Despite its relatively small size, with a population of some 600 people, the village has a close knit community and a number of excellent facilities, including St Peter’s Primary School and two Village Pubs (The McOrville and The Spotted Cow).


The site is being offered for sale freehold as a whole by private treaty.
