Persimmon Homes


Your beautiful new home in Kippax has grown out of the prosperity of the coal mining industry in the 19th century. While the railway joining Garforth and Castleford is long closed, the legacy of the line is now a popular walking and cycling route for the Kippax community. There’s also a lovely woodland trail and the Kippax Meadow Nature reserve for relaxing and reconnecting with the countryside.

As well as walking, your new house in Kippax is close to the leisure centre where you can swim, have a game of indoor football or badminton! There's also Monkey Maze, a softplay centre in nearby Garforth that’s just a five-minute drive. If you like skiing, head to Castleford, just 15 minutes down the road for their Xscape centre that features a ski slope, climbing wall as well as a range of shops and restaurants. If you’d like to stay closer to your Kippax home, there’s a small high street with a range of independent shops, pubs, takeaways and a convenience store. If you're looking for a new house or a new build, Kippax delivers in spades.
