Village life awaits
Osprey View lies just on the edge of Costhorpe. This is a friendly local community which offers a good choice of pubs, as well as handy convenience stores and take-aways. Just as importantly, there are several primary schools in the village rated Good, while the nearby Outwood Academy Valley and Outwood Academy Portland for older children are both rated Outstanding.
Worksop is the handy place to go for all your shopping needs. Famed as the 'Gateway to the Dukeries', the town offers high street favourites as well as small independent shops which are sure to soon become your go-to choices. In addition, there is also a selection of supermarkets to choose from, not forgetting cafes, restaurants and bars to suit every taste.
Of course, one of the great things about life at Osprey View is living in the heart of the beautiful British countryside. Just down the road is Langold Country Park. This covers 300 acres of parkland and is designated as a Local Nature Reserve. To say it has it all is an understatement because as well as woodland, meadows and open grassed areas, it also boasts a large fishing lake, traditional bandstand, skate park, children’s splash park and play equipment for juniors and toddlers.
On the doorstep in Costhorpe is the local cricket pitch and separate playing fields open to all. Or, you can head into Worksop where you’ll find a range of different gyms as well as the local leisure centre with a swimming pool and range of fitness equipment and classes.
For days out, you also don’t have to travel far. Why not take a canal boat from the Lock Keeper pub in Worksop and cruise along the Chesterfield Canal? If you’d rather do something a bit more exciting, you can try your hand at pony trekking, Segway riding in nearby Clumber Park or exploring the ice age caves at Creswell Crags! Then there’s Sherwood Forest to visit if you want to see where Robin Hood once hid from the Sheriff of Nottingham.
With so much to see and do, no two days need ever be the same.
• Walking in Langold Country Park.
• Shopping in Worksop
• Days out at Creswell Crags Museum & Prehistoric Gorge
• Cycling through Sherwood Forest
Perfect for commuting close to work, yet far from it all

In addition, you’ll be commuting distance to Sheffield, Retford, Doncaster, Chesterfield and Mansfield. Who could ask for more? Well, how about a regular bus service? Again, you won’t be disappointed as there are regular services running though Costhorpe.
For travelling further afield, or for days where you simply would rather put your feet up, there’s the local station in Worksop. From here you can catch regular services to Sheffield, Nottingham and Lincoln.
Last and by no means least, Doncaster Sheffield Airport is just 25-minutes away by car. Voted best UK airport by Which? magazine three years in a row, it’s your gateway to the world with flights ranging from Crete to Cancun and Fuerteventura to Florida!
