Our collection of new homes at Friarwood Park is perfectly situated to enjoy Pontefract’s historic charm and offers a choice of two, three and four bedroom homes.
Pontefract is a picturesque market town in West Yorkshire, 17 miles to the south west of the city of Leeds. Since medieval times the town has been making history and is home to one of England's greatest castles and one of the original places where liquorice plants were cultivated. The popular liquorice sweets, Pontefract Cakes, are still made in the town to this day!
This beautiful town is packed with things to do including lively shopping, weekly markets, historic castles and a host of parks and colourful carnivals, making it a superb choice for your new home. Near the A1 and the M62 motorway there are excellent transport links as well as a good choice of well-respected local schooling.
Set in the heart of the town, next to the beautiful Pontefract Valley Gardens, Friarwood Park is in great location. Within walking distance of the bustling town centre with its good rail and bus links, yet with stunning walks on your doorstep, you really do get the best of both worlds.
Nearby, the Xscape sports and leisure complex offers a huge choice of fun activities for all ages. So, whether you fancy having a go at indoor skiing, rock climbing, bowling or even wave surfing, you’ll never be stuck for something to do. There is a good choice of shops, restaurants and bars within the complex, but if you’re after more retail therapy, the Junction 32 designer shopping outlet is only a short distance away.
Other great days out around the town include Pontefract Racecourse, Diggerland, RSPB Fairburn Ings, Anglers Country Park and Hemsworth Water Park & Playworld. And, for those who like the great outdoors, there’s a wealth of walking and cycling routes close to Friarwood Park. Keen golfers amongst you will be pleased to know that Pontefract & District and Whitwood Golf Clubs are just a short drive away.
