The Setting

The Ormesby Estate, once owned by the Pennyman family, is one of few places in Middlesbrough with acres of open space. At the heart of the estate, situated in over 200 acres of countryside lies the house, built in the 1740’s as a wedding present for James and Dorothy Pennyman.

The house is nestled perfectly in a private and secluded location, with its own enchanting gardens, dreamlike, elegant and filled with an array of gorgeous flowers. Photograph opportunities are endless, space infinite and views unparalleled.

Ormesby is hidden away in the heart of Teesside with easy access to the A19 north and south, and the A171 to the Yorkshire Moors and Whitby.
