Situated south of Castleford, on the edge of the village of Cutsyke, there’s a great choice of amenities on your doorstep. Just down the road is the large Asda Glasshoughton Superstore, perfect for the weekly shop. The centre of Castleford is a short drive or bus ride away and it’s here you’ll find all your favourite stores, independent shops and so much more. Are you a serious shopper? Then you will love the fact that Junction 32 Outlet shopping village is just a mile away! There’s over 90 designer outlet stores, places to grab a bite to eat and even crazy golf here - and being so close to home, you can drop in whenever you want.
If you enjoy living an active lifestyle, or if you’ve got kids to entertain, great news. Xscape Castleford is just a few minutes away. This all-in-one entertainment and activity attraction has everything from a real snow slope, bowling alley, climbing wall, trampoline park, golf course, arcade, cinema and plenty of restaurants. There’s something for the whole family.
But sometimes the best things in life are free, like nearby Pontefract Park. This large park includes a lake for boating, a playground, lots of wide open spaces, tennis courts and if you like the outdoors – a nature reserve. The more energetic can walk or run the 2 mile track on the inside of the race course, plus there are lots of fun family events throughout the year too, which are free. There’s also a great choice of walking routes close to the development.
An ideal location for families, it’s good to know that there’s a good choice of schools nearby. Ackton Pastures, Smawthorpe Henry Moore and Half Acres Primary schools are all close by. For the older ones, Castleford Academy and Wakefield College Castleford Campus are also within close distance.
There are so many great towns and cities within easy reach you’ll never run out of things to do. Wakefield, Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster and Huddersfield are all easily accessible to get to, whether it’s by road or rail.
Plus, with so many great attractions in the area, when it comes to days out, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Cannon Hall Farm, Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Royal Armouries and Hemsworth Water Park and Diggerland are just a few. And as you’d expect from such a great Yorkshire location, the dramatic landscapes and natural beauty of the Peak District National Park is nearby too.
