Driffield: A town that is growing and five reasons to buy at Sycamore Park

Driffield, otherwise known as Great Driffield is a popular market town in the Northeast of England with a diverse range of amenities and sights within a close-knit community.

Situated in Yorkshire, Driffield has a certain appeal that led to it becoming top of the list for best places to live in the north of England in 2019 according to the Sunday Times. Three years later, the town is still bustling with energy, and is now home to Tilia’s Sycamore Park development.

1. Historic and Country Sights

If you have an interest in history or feel at home in nature, Driffield is definitely a town to consider when buying your first or next home. The North York Moors are only a 45-minute drive away. Not only that, but Driffield has many parks and trails to explore including Northend, Kilnwick, and Driffield Dog Field for your four-legged friend. On top of that the town has deep historical ties such as the remains of Driffield Castle at Moot Hill, a Bronze Age mound that has been excavated dating back to 2200-1500BC.

2. Independent Shops

Feel like supporting the local economy? Driffield has numerous independent establishments like Molly & Jeans Tearoom and the Singing Barber that has a retro theme to it. There are numerous other businesses that are adjacent to the Beck; a picturesque canal that has a boatload of natural beauty. The local entertainment scene shouldn’t go unmentioned as Driffield hosts independent theatre as well as community events to bring the neighbourhood together.

3. Family Potential

Sycamore Park has excellent potential for families and those looking to start a family. The local primary and secondary schools, Driffield Northfield Infants and Driffield School and Sixth Form both have a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted, alongside Driffield Junior school nearby all of which are within a 20-minute drive of Sycamore Park, with the nearest university is situated in York. There are also good transport links to other towns in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire via the A614 for family days out.

4. A Wide Range of Amenities

Sycamore Park naturally fits into the landscape of Driffield and has access to many amenities all of which are easily accessible. For groceries there is the Tesco superstore, Lidl and other retail outlets. Driffield has a miniatures museum just minutes from the development as well as a tennis club, veterinaries, churches, local fire, Police and Hospital services plus the local Driffield train station giving easy access to Scarborough, Hull and many more.

5. Be Part of a Close Community

Finally, if the desire to belong in a community is high on your priority list, Sycamore Park could be for you. Driffield interacts with its residents through traditions and showcases such as the annual scrambling where children walk through the main street shouting in rhymes to shop owners for free sweets and money. For adults there is the annual agricultural show, raft race on the canal and the traction engine exhibition. There will never be a dull moment when you’re part of the Driffield community!

If Driffield seems like home, visit Sycamore Park and grab the few remaining properties left on offer.
