How to find us

Living in Startforth

Castle Croft takes its name from the 12th Century Barnard Castle and grounds. The collection of homes is just a 30-minute drive from Darlington, while being conveniently located close to village shops, facilities, and amenities. Castle Croft also benefits from being close to seven primary schools and three high schools are within five miles of the development. There is a close-knit town feeling with a monthly Farmers' Market held on 'The Cobbles' in the Market Place in Startforth.

Tilia Homes has made contributions of more than £1m towards local facilities and infrastructure, including more than £40,000 towards offsite play areas.
