Skelmanthorpe lies within easy reach of Wakefield, Huddersfield, Leeds and Sheffield, yet remains surrounded by beautiful countryside giving you the very best of both worlds. Weavers Place will have two, three and four-bedroom homes, suitable for first-time buyers up to growing families who require more space.
The village has several useful shops for day-to-day items and with Huddersfield and Leeds within such easy reach, you’ll have the full range of town and city amenities there. It’s just over half an hour’s drive into Leeds city centre and just 20 minutes into Huddersfield.
