What makes Willow Heights such an attractive option isn’t just the superb choice of high-quality homes on offer, but also it’s handy location in the village of Thurnscoe. Just a short stroll down the road takes you to a selection of handy local shops, a post office and choice of supermarkets. While a choice of places to eat, drink and meet friends is also yours to discover. Alternatively, hop in the car and take a short drive to either Corton Wood Retail Park or Parkgate Retail World which both offer a great choice of high street favourites.
Families will be pleased to know that children of all ages can look forward to a great education. The village has a choice of local primary schools, while the secondary school of Dearne Academy, is just down the road in the nearby village of Goldthorpe.
Life at Willow Heights is also perfect for those who enjoy their exercise. In the village is a bowling green and multi sports court as well as parks and miles of country walks. Golfers can enjoy a round at nearby Hickleton Golf Course, while those who prefer their sport a bit more active can head to Dearnside Leisure Centre.
Thanks to its great central location in the centre of Yorkshire no two days out need ever be the same. In fact, you only have to go to Xcape in Glasshoughton, just off the M62, for everything from Snowzone and Gravity Rocks to Adventure Golf and Cineworld. You can also head into Leeds or Sheffield with ease to take in the sights and sounds of either buzzing city. Or, if you prefer a more relaxing experience, simply visit Phoenix Park down the road with its climbing wall, carved farmyard animals, maze, and art gallery.
The ideal commuting hub
Willow Heights lets you enjoy the best of village life while still being within an easy commute to a host of cities and towns.

If you prefer to use the train, then you’ll be pleased to know that the village train station is walking distance from your door. With regular services to the bright lights of Sheffield and Leeds, you can travel near and far with ease. Getting about by bus is also a breeze with choice of local services stopping in the area.
It’s also just as easy to jump on a plane as Doncaster Sheffield Airport is a half hour drive away. With international flights the world’s your oyster.
