The Dissington Estate is a major agricultural estate located to the west of Ponteland and the affluent residential area of Darras Hall.
The estate is located 7 miles from Newcastle city centre and 1.5 miles from Newcastle International Airport and sits between Ponteland to the east and Stamfordham to the west.
The Dissington Estate is being offered for sale as a whole (although individual farms may be available by separate negotiation). There are five primary let farms with fixed equipment with additional income derived from a number of let residential properties, a fishing pond, smaller areas of land and wayleaves totalling an annual income of £286,137.
The estate also includes the site of the Dissington Garden Village, a proposal promoted by the previous owners to create a new settlement to the north of Darras Hall on land forming one of the primary tenanted farms on the Estate. The proposals were originally supported by the Local Authority who went as far as minding to consent planning permission for up to 2,000 new homes. Following local elections in 2017, there was a change in administration at the local authority who withdrew the emerging Local Plan that had included the policy context for the change to the Green Belt. Representations have been made to the revised emerging Northumberland Local Plan challenging the assumptions made by the Council in assessing future housing need and the Green Belt review and promoting the principle of development in the location of the Garden Village.
