Things to do
Local area
Epitome is a collection of 91 two, four and five bedroom homes in the Snowhill area of Wakefield. Emerging in its own right alongside more established suburbs such as Wrenthorpe and Outwood, Snowhill is growing in popularity and amenities, making it an increasingly desirable place to live, within very easy reach of one of the north’s most exciting cities. 

You're never far from the heart of Wakefield, with a journey into the city centre can take as little as 10 minutes by car. Local transport links to other areas also make it perfect for commuters, with easy access to both the M1 and M62. 

"Snowhill has a great sense of community - and the location is great! It’s the perfect spot for commuting – it has fantastic links to Leeds, Wakefield and more, which is great for work and future career opportunities." Ben Smith, Epitome


Living in Snowhill

Being so close to Wakefield, you’re never far from everything you could need, but there is also plenty to see and do moments from home. 

Snowhill is a great location for growing families, with Wrenthorpe local park less than a mile from home, with access to tennis courts, a bowling green, children's playground, football pitch and a path connecting the park to neighbouring Alverthorpe Meadows. 

Considered a green oasis not far from the centre of Wakefield, Alverthorpe Meadows and Wrenthorpe Park is a local nature reserve that’s great for walking and cycling. There’s also a kids’ playground and meadows for wildlife spotting. There are also several ponds there, with boardwalks so you can enjoy a family day out spotting creatures.

Eating out is also easy when you live at Epitome. Snowhill boasts excellent local eateries including Italian food at Capri @The Vine, traditional British pub food at Brewers’ Fayre and Indian cuisine from Kashmiri Aroma, all within half a mile of home. The Royal Spice on Bradford Road comes highly recommended and they also offer home delivery.

Getting around

Epitome is off the A650, the road that takes you into the heart of Wakefield. Head northwards and it will transport you towards the M1, which is 2.5 miles away. Other major roads are also close by, including the M62 in seven minutes, and if you need to travel along the A1, it’s 13.5 miles from home.

Epitome is well-served by local Arriva buses, with the 103 and 110 services running into the centre of Wakefield. Head to a bus stop that’s about six minutes’ walk from home and the buses run into Wakefield every 10 minutes. You can be at Wakefield Bus Station in 13 minutes, or the 110 will take you to Leeds City Bus Station in a little over half an hour.

At Epitome, you’re 21 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport. Fly to destinations such as Dublin, Amsterdam, Malaga and Prague – best of all, you can be at the airport in around 40 minutes.

City centre travel 
Once you're in the centre of Wakefield, make your way to Wakefield Westgate train station 1.6 miles away from Epitome for regular services to major towns and cities throughout the UK, including London King’s Cross, Plymouth and Glasgow. 

The Wakefield freecitybus operates throughout the centre and takes in some of its key locations. The service runs every 10 to 12 minutes from 7:30am to 6:40pm on weekdays, and from 8:30am to 5:00pm at the weekend. Stops include Wakefield One, The Hepworth Gallery and Wakefield Westgate and Kirkgate train stations.

With Wakefield so close by, your shopping fix is easily met. Trinity Walk Shopping Centre is 2.5 miles away in the city centre, where you'll find big names such as H&M, New Look and Topshop as well as places to eat and drink. The Ridings is home to more high street names as well as smaller independents, while around Northgate and the Bullring you’ll find small boutique outlets.  

Wakefield Market Hall is definitely worth a look and is 1.6 miles away from Epitome. Head down to Union Street six days a week to buy everything from clothing, jewellery and greetings cards. Look out for a monthly food, art and crafts market held the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 4pm, near Wakefield Cathedral. 

Closer to home
Snowhill is in a great position, with Wrenthorpe and Outwood both close by. The centre of Wrenthorpe is less than a mile away, where you’ll find a Premier Foods mini mart, ideal for stocking up on milk, bread and any other staples you might need. Outwood, on the other hand, is home to a Tesco Express and a Co-op.

There is also Snowhill Retail Park to look forward to. It’s due to open later in the year and will be home to ten units, housing everything from Aldi and Iceland supermarkets to a Costa Coffee.

Up & coming

"Snowhill has a great sense of community - and the location is great! It’s the perfect spot for commuting – it has fantastic links to Leeds, Wakefield and more, which is great for work and future career opportunities." Ben Smith, Epitome

Snowhill is a small suburb of Wakefield, 1.4 miles from the city centre. Over the past few years, it has become a thriving residential area with a growing population and new shops and services adding to the amenities on the doorstep all the time. Several developments around Snowhill have meant new roads, retail parks and places to eat and drink have appeared in the area. 

Wakefield is close to home and is fast becoming one of the north’s most important business hubs. A multi-million pound regeneration project is underway, bringing exciting new investment to the city. The first phases of the Merchant Gate residential, office and leisure development have been completed, and there’s also the new Trinity Walk shopping centre to enjoy.

There's also plenty to look forward to in the area surrounding the development, too, as the eagerly-anticipated Snowhill Retail Park is due to open later in 2017. Here you'll find Aldi and Iceland supermarkets – and best of all it's only a few minutes down the road.
