Morpeth, 2 Bridge Street & 15 Market Place

Rent: £0

Sale price: £620,000

Region: Northumberland

Town/City: Morpeth

Morpeth is situated approximately 14 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne and is Northumberland’s County Town and Administration Centre. The affluent Market Town is thriving and a popular & growing commuter destination for the Tyneside & Northumberland Conurbations.
The town has by and large resisted the trend for out of town retail development and its retail offer is almost entirely confined within the historical core. Bridge St and Newgate St are the principal thoroughfares along with Sanderson Arcade whose principal entrance off Bridge St leads through to ample free car park and big box retailers including Next, M&S, New Look, Wm Morrison and Lidl.
Morpeth’s current population is over 14,000 and its catchment is considerable. The town hosts a range of independent and multiple upmarket retailer and leisure operators including M&S, Fat Face, Crew, Superdrug, White Stuff, Loungers, Sea Salt, Mint Velvet, JoJo Maman-Bebe, Waterstones, Hobbs, WH Smith, Boots and others. There is healthy demand for vacant space in the town.
