From picturesque villages and charming market towns to a dramatic coastline and beautiful countryside, the region surprises and delights at every turn.
Whether it’s country cottages, Victorian houses, modern new builds or executive apartments, there’s a superb variety of homes to suit all incomes. The average house price is £142,237, which means people have more money to spend on the finer things, such as the area’s thriving independent shops and eateries.
Nine out of ten Tees Valley primary schools are either good or outstanding, with colleges, apprenticeships and support schemes creating pathways for young people. Alongside excellent, high performing comprehensive schools, Yarm School, Red House School and Teesside High offer independent education for those aged between 3-18. Within an hour’s drive there’s ten key universities, including Teesside, Durham, Newcastle, York and Leeds.
Stunning national parks such as the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales are just an hour and a half’s drive away. Closer to home and visible from most parts of the Tees Valley, the North York Moors offer rolling hills and sweeping, natural beauty.
Thanks to convenient road and rail networks, nearby regions are also within easy reach. This includes York, Harrogate and Leeds to the south, as well as Durham, Newcastle and Edinburgh to the north.
When you bring all this together, fewer places in the UK offer a better quality of life than the Tees Valley. A place where green countryside, the blissful coast and the office are all less than 30 minutes away.
