Yarm High Street has a range of Georgian-style old buildings with red pantile roofs and cobbled parking areas, creating a charming atmosphere with an abundance of visual appeal.

Excellent road links to the A19, A66 and A1 providing access to Teesside, Newcastle, Durham, York, Harrogate and Leeds.

Denbigh Cottage

Located in the popular village of Thornton, Denbigh Cottage is an intelligently designed, large, modern family home with further annexe potential, neatly positioned on a private plot with no passing traffic. The property enjoys substantial accommodation with up to five adaptable reception rooms and five bedrooms, three of which benefit from en suite bathrooms.

The outside space is equally impressive with parking for multiple vehicles and an integral double garage with workshop area and w.c. There is a glorious entertaining terrace to the rear, from which to enjoy the south westerly aspect.


An entrance porch leads through to the spacious reception hall, which features an elegant oak staircase and provides access to the principal ground floor rooms.

The hub of the home is likely to be the large, open-plan kitchen breakfast room with high quality fixtures and fittings. There is space for a dining table along with a casual breakfast bar, perfect for a coffee with friends. The utility room is handily placed and large enough for all a modern family needs, with an adjacent storeroom and a convenient door leading outside.

Denbigh Cottage works well for those who love entertaining, with a dining room large enough to accommodate even the most extravagant social gatherings. The main living room is ideal for cosy nights in front of the central fireplace, with double doors opening to the conservatory which can be used all year round thanks to the fitted air conditioning. There is a further reception room to the other side of the hallway, which could be utilised as a playroom, music room or family room.

The study provides a quiet space for those who work from home, whilst the ground floor bedroom with fitted wardrobes enjoys access to the adjacent bathroom and offers further flexibility.

The first floor has a huge, open-plan landing area with ample space for furniture and doors to three double bedrooms, all with their own en suite. Your choice of master bedroom will depend upon which side of the house you prefer; our favourite was overlooking the gardens but your guests might also like to enjoy that view.


A glorious entertaining patio terrace stretches across the rear of the property, overlooking the south westerly-facing lawn. With access to the house via either the kitchen or conservatory, this large area is perfect for barbecues or drinks with friends. There is additional garden space to the side, with a door leading directly into the workshop.

Garage and Parking

Denbigh Cottage is approached via a private shared drive leading to the property s own gated entrance. This opens up to a substantial block-paved parking area, suitable for multiple vehicles, along with an oversized garage with twin electric doors and a courtesy door through to the house; ideal for damp shopping days.

At the rear of the garage, there is a wine storeroom and a workshop with dog washing facilities, a ground floor w.c and convenient access from the garden.
