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.

A bespoke selling plan for homeowners

The Assisted Selling Plan is designed to help homeowners climb the property ladder. As part of the scheme, we will organise the sale of your existing home, making sure you receive the best possible price. This will allow you to reserve your new home with us.
