Perfectly situated for the amenities and attractions of Wakefield, The Woods, which forms part of the wider City Fields neighbourhood, has easy access to the M1 and M62 and is well within commuting range of Leeds. There are bus services into the city centre and Wakefield benefits from good rail links. Of the two railway stations, Westgate is on the Leeds to London route, with journey times of less than 15 minutes to Leeds and two hours to London Kings Cross, while Kirkgate serves stations to Sheffield and Nottingham.
The city of Wakefield presents a superb choice of cultural and leisure attractions set against a background of fascinating architecture and heritage, including the magnificent Wakefield Cathedral and Sandal Castle. In addition to visual arts at The Hepworth, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and several smaller galleries, the Theatre Royal presents an eclectic programme of drama and music, and the new Unity Works is a vibrant venue for social gatherings and live music. There is an excellent choice of cinemas, bars, restaurants and nightlife, including soul nights at the celebrated Red Bar.
Wakefield’s sporting and leisure provision include the superb Pugneys Watersports Centre and Country Park on the southern edge of the city, where there are facilities for sailing, windsurfing and canoeing, and the choice of leisure centres in the area includes Sun Lane Leisure, where there is a 25m swimming pool, a fitness suite and a gym. Other amenities nearby include Normanton Golf Club, around a mile to the north, and Pontefract Racecourse is less than ten miles away.
The City Fields proposals include a neighbourhood centre within a short walk of the homes, with a range of shops including food retailers, restaurants, a medical centre and other services. There is also a small local shopping area on Windhill Road with a pharmacist, a post office and a convenience store, while the city centre offers a very wide choice of high street chains, malls and traditional shops. A major recycling centre on Denby Dale Road, three and a half miles away, accepts virtually all household packaging, electrical items and clothing.
An area within the wider City Fields neighbourhood, close to Wakefield City Academy, has been set aside for educational provision. However, there is also a choice of established primary schools within walking distance, from where pupils normally move on to either Outwood Grange Academy or St Thomas à Becket RC College for secondary education. There is a large fulltime GP practice at New Southgate Surgery, approximately a mile and a half away, and Pinderfields General Hospital, around half a mile from The Woods, operates a round-the- clock A&E department.

What our customers say...
“Miller Homes stand out above other house builders.”
Having just had a baby, we desperately needed extra space and didn’t want to give the baby a small ‘box’ room. Miller Homes is well known for the size of the bedrooms (and gardens) and that attracted us straight away. All the rooms are really spacious compared to other new builds and house builders.
“This house caught our eye.”
The location is fantastic as it’s really close to the canal which is perfect for walks. The internal layout of the home is what caught our eye, as it feels open plan but has segmented areas, such as the living room, which also give it a cosy feel. The downstairs is especially great due to the open kitchen, dining and snug that spans the width of the house. The French doors leading from the kitchen to the garden also gives the space a bright and airy feel which is perfect for entertaining family and friends.
“The Miller Homes team has been absolutely fantastic.”
The whole team on site has been very helpful, especially the assistant site manager, Matt. He’s answered any questions we’ve had quickly and has gone above and beyond with extra bits we wanted doing - even helping us dig out the garden to avoid having to hire skips! He has really made the experience pleasant and smooth, and made us feel welcomed to the development. The sales team was also fantastic.
I’d definitely recommend Miller Homes…
… because of the whole experience Miller has provided - from the quality of the home, the knowledge and friendliness of the team and the general layout of the house compared to what other developers were offering.
