“As well as pubs and bars, we have nice places to eat, all within walking distance. We are always bumping into neighbours if we go out on an evening – it's such a social place to live.” 
Nichola-Kate, Elegance

Leisure - Elegance

Up & coming

Ackworth’s location between Pontefract, Barnsley and Doncaster makes it perfectly placed to benefit from redevelopment works taking place in the towns.

A new highway, known as the Wakefield Eastern Relief Road, has recently opened between the A642 and A638, making travelling to nearby towns and cities even easier.

One of the village’s main draws is its schools, including the prestigious Ackworth School. More new homes in Ackworth are being built in order to meet this demand and to place families in the most sought after catchment areas.
