In focus: Barnsley

May 2017

Fusing a fantastic blend of traditional heritage and modernisation, Barnsley has undergone a regeneration of its town centre and surrounding villages, upgrading the town centre with a new outdoor and indoor market, restaurants, shops and attractions.

Its close proximity to Sheffield gives you fantastic access to both local and national transport links, whilst Meadowhall is just a 15 minute drive away. Leeds is just a short 30 minute drive away.

Whilst the lure of Sheffield is strong, Barnsley boasts plenty of attractions to keep you occupied, with the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Metrodome Leisure Centre, Dearne Valley Country Park and Cannon Hall Farm all available to explore at your own leisure.

With the regeneration of the area, it is no surprise that the area is becoming increasingly popular amongst first time buyers, particularly on the Help to Buy scheme.

The Help to Buy scheme offers buyers a 5 year interest free 20% equity loan on the value of a property and with only a 5% deposit, there's no better time to make the move.

We've listed some of the developments available this month on the Help to Buy scheme;
