Live the Wakefield life

Well connected, surrounded by natural scenery and with a town centre that offers plenty, there’s lots to look forward to when you buy a house in Wakefield. The same applies to buying one of our new homes, as we could save you thousands of pounds through offers such as the Government’s Help to Buy scheme.

 

Things to see and do in Wakefield

There are plenty of interesting things to see and do in the centre of town, where you’ll find Wakefield Museum, the Gissing Centre and the town’s cathedral. With Clarence Park, Holmfield Park and Thornes Park all close to each other just south of the centre, you can also find Pugneys Watersports Centre and Country Park on the opposite bank of the River Calder.

Whether you’re visiting Sandal Castle or the striking Hepworth, a contemporary art gallery, you can also take advantage of natural spots like Walton Colliery Nature Park, Stanley Marsh and the Southern Washlands for relaxing walks on the outskirts of town.

 

Education

There are a number of outstanding schools in the Wakefield area according to Ofsted, with Rooks Nest Academy and Outwood Primary Academy Ledger Lane in the Outwood catchment area among of the top primary options. Jerry Clay Academy in Wrenthorpe is another local primary with top marks from the education board.

If you live to the east of Wakefield then you may find yourself in the catchment area for the outstanding secondary Castleford Academy, while the equally highly rated Outwood Academy City Fields is close to the centre of town.

 

Wakefield transport links

Wakefield boasts excellent transport links for both getting around West Yorkshire and places further afield. There’s a free city bus for residents and visitors alike, as well as a regular bus network, coaches and the Wakefield Westgate train station.

If you have a car, you’ll be close to the M1 motorway which runs north to Leeds and south towards Barnsley, Sheffield, Nottingham and Leicester, before reaching London in the South. Excellent access to the M62 also means you can drive to Manchester in less than an hour, while you can use the same road to reach Liverpool and Hull on opposite coasts.

 

The Wakefield property scene

With increasing house prices and rising rentals, Wakefield has a strong property market which is ripe for investing in. You could do just that by choosing a modern 3 bedroom semi or a spacious 4 bed detached home in the East Ardsley area, which is a few miles north of Wakefield’s centre on the way to Leeds.

If that location sounds perfect to you, then our range of offers can help to make your purchase even better. Whether you go for our Part Exchange scheme where we act as a guaranteed buyer for your current home, or eliminate estate agent fees with Movemaker, your move could get off to the best possible start when you get in touch today.
