About the DevelopmentSet in the delightful Yorkshire village of Sherburn in Elmet, Saxon Gardens offers the best of both worlds, with the peace and quiet of village life combined with excellent commuter links to nearby towns and cities, including Leeds and York. What’s more, Sherburn is no ordinary village, with a superb sense of community and a highly popular aero club with its own airfield.
Saxon Gardens offers three and four bedroom detached and semi detached homes in Sherburn, featuring our award winning Heritage collection.
There is a post office in the village, along with Spar, Co-op, Aldi and Tesco Express supermarkets for your weekly grocery shopping. For doctors, register with Sherburn Group Practice in Beech Grove (Sat Nav LS25 6ED, call and for dentists try Elmet Dental Care on Low Street (Sat Nav LS25 6BG, call
Dining in this part of the world is very much focused on fine home cooking in friendly country pubs, and there are many hidden surprises in and around Sherburn, including the Red Bear, Oddfellows Arms and Forresters Arms in the village itself, the Queen o’ t’ Owd Thatch in South Milford, the White Horse in Church Fenton and the Ash Tree in Barkston Ash.The village is also home to a handful of traditional restaurants, including Bon Restaurant and Wine Bar and Saffron for Asia cuisine.
EducationAt Redrow, we understand the importance of building our family homes near high quality schools, and in Sherburn you’ll be spoiled for choice, despite the relatively small size of the village.
The Sherburn area has a choice of two Ofsted ‘good’ rated primary schools. Both Athelstan Community Primary, close to the development, and Sherburn Hungate to the north of the village, come highly recommended and are popular choices for Sherburn families. The village also has its own high school, saving older pupils a long bus ride into town. Sherburn High School is a specialist science school and lies within walking distance of Saxon Gardens.
LeisureFew villages can boast their own aerodrome, let alone some of the finest facilities in Britain. Sherburn Aero Club offers a wide variety of pleasure flights and lessons, along with a popular social programme that is the highlight of the village calendar. For more grounded sports, head for the leisure centres at Garforth and Kippax, both just a short drive away, or join one of the many village teams, including rugby league, football and cricket. You can hang up your ‘gone fishing’ sign and head for Bacon Factory Pond, or tee off at either Scarthingwell or Cocksford golf course.
If you fancy a change of scenery, the culture of thriving Leeds and the history of ancient York are both close by for a great day, or night, out.
ShoppingAs with most villages, the traditional market is the focus of shopping twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. You’ll also discover a surprisingly good selection of shops in the village centre, with traditional independent butchers and greengrocers alongside big names like Boots.
For a more extensive shopping trip, head for the historic Shambles of York, or the huge arcades and shopping malls of Leeds, including the Corn Exchange, the Grand Arcade and Trinity Leeds.
TransportEnjoying the village lifestyle often means living off the beaten track, but not in Sherburn. The village has a choice of two stations, Sherburn in Elmet, which lies to the east of the village and has a small car park, and South Milford Station, which lies a short drive to the south, and has parking for 30 cars. Sherburn in Elmet station has services to York in 17minutes and Sheffield in around an hour, while South Milford has services to Leeds just over 20 minutes away.
Connections are just as good by road, with the A1(M), M1, A63 and A162 all within easy reach, opening up the whole of the region. Leeds and York are both around 16miles away, with Selby and Castleford closer at 9miles and Wetherby 12miles. For holiday travel, you can take off at Leeds Bradford Airport just 25miles away or set out to sea on the continental ferries of Hull just an hour’s drive away.
