There are lots of reason to love living at Farmside Green, but one of the main ones has to be its superb location in the quaint village of Leconfield with open fields and an ecology park along its southern and western boundary.
This friendly small community has a handy post office, while families with young children will be pleased to know that the village is served by a small primary school rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. For older children there is a choice of secondary schools both rated ‘Good’ down the road in Beverley.
Leconfield Recreation Club found on the edge of the village is an unofficial hub that brings everyone together. It’s a place to meet up with friends for a catch-up and a drink as well as enjoy events like regular live music and family fun days. Plus, it offers a choice of activities such as an outdoor play area for children, while grown-ups can enjoy pool, darts and football on the outdoor pitches.
The historic market town of Beverley is just three miles down the road. Here you will find everything you could possibly need. Whether you’re looking for leisure, culture or a bit of history, you’re in for a treat. Shoppers can enjoy exploring the boutique shops and famous Saturday Market. Or for high street favourites, head for Flemingate retail and leisure complex with it impressive choice of big name shops, restaurants and 5-screen cinema complex. Beverley is also the place to be for eating and drinking thanks to its impressive range of cafés, restaurants and bars.
For sports and leisure, you’re equally spoilt for choice. The town has an excellent choice of gyms and a leisure centre with a swimming pool, gym and fitness classes. There is also the Beverley and East riding Golf Club as well as the historic racecourse which always promises an exciting time for all.
For days out, you’ve all East Yorkshire on your doorstep. Whether you like walking, cycling or simply seeing the sights, no two days need be the same. In just half an hour you can paddling in the sea at Hornsea South Beach or visiting Bridlington Animal Park. Alternatively, head into Hull where you’ll find everything from The Deep, trendy Fruit Market and Hull’s Old Town to Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Maritime Museum and the Museum Quarter. And don’t forget to plan a walk over the Humber Bridge. It’ll take your breath away!
