New Homes in South Yorkshire

New Homes in South Yorkshire

Live close to beautiful countryside, cultural cities and top universities

Encompassing the towns and cities of Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley, South Yorkshire is a vibrant region of the UK with lots to see and do just a short distance from your new home. So whether you’re looking for new employment, top-notch education or simply brilliant shopping, South Yorkshire could be the right place for you to settle.

South Yorkshire through the ages

Although South Yorkshire wasn’t an officially recognised region until 1974, the area’s history stretches right back to Roman times and beyond. There’s even evidence of prehistoric Mesolithic civilisation in Sheffield, dating all the way back to around 8,000 BC, while other historical sites include Conisbrough Castle, Doncaster Mansion House, Roche Abbey and Wentworth Castle and Gardens.

The biggest place in South Yorkshire is Sheffield, a city which dates back to the 9th century at a time when it was just a small hamlet with a growing Viking population. Over the centuries, South Yorkshire became a prominent region for mining and the manufacturing of steel, especially in and near to Sheffield where the surrounding hills and valleys provided a wealth of raw materials including iron ore and coal. During both the First and Second World Wars, Sheffield came under fire from the Germans, especially during the Sheffield Blitz in December 1940.

Today, Sheffield and South Yorkshire is a region known for its universities, museums, historic sites and beautiful countryside in the Pennines and the Peak District National Park. You can discover more about local history by visiting the region’s many museums including South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, South Yorkshire Transport Museum and Weston Park Museum.

Must-know info for families

If you’re moving to South Yorkshire with a young, growing family in tow, there are plenty of excellent options for schooling. In the city of Sheffield, Totley All Saints Primary, Dore Primary, Stocksbridge Juniors. Sheffield High School, Silverdale School, King Ecgbert School and Tapton School are all rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, while Doncaster is home to the outstanding Bentley High Street Primary School, Hill Top Primary School, Kirkby Avenue Primary School, Hungerhill and Outwood Academy Adwick.

For higher education, South Yorkshire is home to the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, The Sheffield College, and Doncaster College & University Centre.

 Places to see and things to do

When it comes to family-friendly entertainment, there’s lots to keep children of all ages entertained in South Yorkshire. In Sheffield, Kelham Island Museum and Sheffield Winter Gardens are popular, while the Magna Science Adventure Centre can be found in Rotherham and Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster. Other great attractions include Woodlands Model Village and Elsecar Steam Railway, while you can get a breath of fresh air at the RSPB Old Moor Wetland Centre, Ulley Reservoir & Country Park, and Worsbrough Mill & Country Park.

What about business?

Although South Yorkshire is historically an industrial region, today they are a number of big businesses in the region spanning retail, services and more. Wilko Retail is located in Matlock, while DFS Furniture is in Doncaster, and Plusnet, SIG UK, Learndirect, Arnold Laver & Co and Go Outdoors are all located in Sheffield. The universities are also big employers, as are the local hospitals and councils.

For travel

For commuters, the M1, A1 (M) and M18 all serve the region, while the local rail networks link the local towns and cities, helping to avoid rush hour traffic on the roads. A journey from Sheffield to Doncaster typically takes around 40 minutes by car, while the journey by train takes 25 minutes on the TransPennine Express service.

If you need to travel further afield, the train from Sheffield to London St Pancras International takes just over 2 hours, while Doncaster Sheffield Airport has flights to destinations all around the world.
