Moving to Barnsley
Nestled in South Yorkshire, Barnsley has grown into a lively town. Ideally located halfway between Sheffield and Leeds, the historical town lies on the west bank of the Dearne Valley. Although the town centre of Barnsley is thriving, the outskirts present some of the most beautiful landscapes within the UK. With great transport links, affordable housing prices and over 600 shops and businesses, it is not hard to understand why many are moving to Barnsley.
For families moving to Barnsley, there are plenty of well-presented three-bed semis, complete with off-road parking and a garden. There are also many smaller, terraced homes, in the distinct rugged Barnsley style, which are ideal for young families or those just starting on the property ladder. Larger period properties can be found on the outskirts of Barnsley, with many retaining their original Georgian features. One- and two-bedroom flats can be found in the centre of town and are very popular with young professionals who commute out of the town.
Days Out in Barnsley
When home matches are on, many head to the Oakwell stadium to see Barnsley F.C. score some goals. A similar local highlight for Barnsley residents is the speedway racing track at Barnsley Lundwood.
Canon Hall Museum Park and Gardens is a wonderful day out for all the family, The 70 acres of rolling parkland is a safe place to let your little ones tire themselves out and you relax and wander along the pathways.
For something a little more active but still a hit for people of all ages is Calypso Cove. Families can take a dip in the extensive pools, before taking to the water flumes and torrent pool!
