Rent: £Price on Application

Region: Northumberland

Town/City: Morpeth


SITUATION & DESCRIPTION
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 commuter destination for the Tyneside Conurbation. Morpeth’s current population is over 14,000 but its catchment is not only considerable and draws from a wide largely rural hinterland but growing with significant new housing schemes ongoing throughout the Town and wider area.

The town has by and large resisted the trend for out of town retail development and its retail and leisure offer is almost entirely confined within the historical core.

The Town’s main retail focus is Sanderson Arcade one of the main entrances to which overlooks the opportunity. In between is the Town’s main car park (circa 222 spaces) which is currently free to use due to the Town’s disc parking scheme. Big box retailers including Next, M&S, New Look, Wm Morrison and Lidl are all situated in close proximity. The town hosts a range of multiple and independent retailers including upmarket brands and anchors such as Fat Face, Laura Ashley, White Stuff, Sea Salt, Mint Velvet, JoJo Maman-Bebe, Waterstones, Hobbs, Paperchase and others.

The town is also witnessing a growth as a leisure destination. New entrants include Pleased to Meet You, the Newcastle based bar/restaurant group, BarLuga, Lollo Rosso as well as several new local cafes and restaurants within the town centre core.
