The local area guide to living in Chathill

The small rural hamlet of Chathill lies in the north east of England in the beautiful county of Northumberland. Chathill is only three miles inland from the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding National Beauty, along the main road to the sea.

Chathill is a part of the Berwick-upon-Tweed parliamentary constituency. Chathill and its neighbouring hamlets, including Preston, Newham, Wandylaw, Ellingham, and Doxford belong to the ward of Bamburgh.

Apart from the railway station, Preston Pele Tower is one of Chathill’s main claims. The tower was built in the late 1300s and a clock installed in 1864. An ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales, was one of the tower’s former owners.

Commuters are attracted to Chathill due to its attractive proximities to major locales, most notably Newcastle upon Tyne - which can be reached in around an hour by bus or car. Professionals looking to escape the busy streets of bigger cities, often find what they are looking for in rural villages like Chathill!

Information about the local residents

According to the 2011 Census, Bamburgh has a population of 4,793. This is quite surprising given that the population stood at around 788 during the 2001 Census!

Residents in Ellingham/Chathill are typically between the ages of 35-54 and work in occupations such as Skilled Trades and Managers, Directors and Senior Officials, and they are primarily employed in the industries of Accommodation and Food Service Activities, Public Administration and Defence; Compulsory Social Security, Wholesale and Retail Trade and Construction.

Nearby schools

There is no lack of schools in the area, though the options come from surrounding towns. Ellingham C of E First School is the closest school to Chathill, and Embleton Vincent Edwards C of E First and Seahouses First and Middle Schools are not far away. Only nine miles away in Alnwick, the options are greatly extended, with most schools being located here.

For secondary level and sixth form education, children will have to venture to either Belford, Seahouses or Alnwick. Options include Barndale House School and The Duchess’s Community High School. Another alternative is Berwick Academy, which is a combined secondary and high school in Berwick-upon-Tweed, but at nearly 25 miles away, you would need to be willing to travel some distance from Chathill.

Getting around

Road connections are good, as the village lies along the main road serving the coast of Northumberland and is close to the A1. Chathill is serviced by Chathill Railway Station, the northern terminus of the Northern Rail network ending all direct connections further north.

This East Coast Main Line station has two arrivals and departures daily, which makes it a good commute option to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This is the largest city in the area and is only an hour away by train or 47 minutes by car. It’s no wonder the hamlet is home to a considerable commuter community!

Local shops

The Craster Arms is Chathill’s local, but there are plenty more pubs to be found in the neighbouring hamlets and particularly in the towns of Seahouses and Bamburgh, only eight and twelve minutes away by car respectively.

If you want more choice, Bamburgh, Seahouses and Alnwick will provide plenty of options for restaurants, shopping and activities, but venture further afield and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. From Berwick-upon-Tweed’s vibrant community to the historic old village of Morpeth with a mix of high-end shops and traditional markets, there is an excellent range of shops and attractions to be discovered!

If, however, you want to go on a shopping spree, Newcastle upon Tyne can be frequented. Home to the Intu Eldon Square and Intu MetroCentre in Gateshead, easily accessible by car or bus from Newcastle, you’ll be utterly spoilt for choice. Intu MetroCentre is even home to an 11 screen IMAX cinema and is, in fact, the biggest shopping centre in the UK!
