The benefits of living on the border

As well as a range of excellent village amenities, including local restaurants and pubs, you have the South Yorkshire city of Doncaster less than half an hour’s drive away. To the south in rural Nottinghamshire, Langold Country Park and Idle Valley Nature Reserve are both beautiful spots for countryside days out.

Education opportunities

A good location for growing families, Harworth has five schools (primary and secondary) to choose from, including St Patrick's Catholic Primary School which has been rated as outstanding in previous years. Doncaster also offers an absolute wealth of schools for all ages, plus sixth form and college tuition.

A commuter hotspot

Together they provide easy routes to York, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester and London. The convenient A1 also runs along to the west of the village, which gives you good access to the North and East Midlands alike. 

And for effortless air travel, Doncaster Sheffield Airport is only 20 minutes by car.
