Why choose Mansfield to call home?8th September 2023 | Corporate News
Overlooking beautiful countryside, our spectacular High Oakham Ridge development in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire’s largest market town, is the ideal location for those seeking the very best of both worlds – a vibrant town centre packed with amenities, as well as the great outdoors on the doorstep.
You will feel right at home in one of our two or three storey 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes, which are specifically designed for the development and carefully planned to take advantage of the outstanding views, allowing you to truly appreciate the stunning surroundings.
If that doesn’t already create visions of your dream location, here we reveal our top five reasons to make the move to Mansfield…
- Legendary woodlands
From the outskirts of Mansfield, you can easily venture into Sherwood Forest, which is alive with stories and landmarks relating to the Robin Hood legend. Just a few miles south of the town centre you can explore Thieves Wood and take a waymarked route through to Fountaindale – the fabled place where Robin Hood first met Friar Tuck. Even closer to home, High Oakham Ridge residents will enjoy easy access to Oakham Nature Reserve, which is adjacent to the development and brimming with wet willow woodland, ponds and grassland for leisurely strolls, dog walks or exercise.
- Family fun made easy
Come rain or shine, in Mansfield you will never be short of things to do as a family, thanks to the array of leisure venues dotted around the town. Just north of the town centre you will find the perfect place for children and adults alike to burn off some energy – i-Jump Trampoline Park. Alternatively, take on the wave machine and waterslides at Water Meadows Swimming Centre, strike it lucky at Mansfield Superbowl or catch the latest blockbuster at Mansfield Odeon – all within a five-minute drive of High Oakham Ridge.
- Vibrant town centre
Whether you need to run a few errands, have time to browse or stock up with your weekly food shop, Mansfield town centre offers everything you could need. Just a couple of minutes away from our development is a modern shopping centre, outdoor retail park and Sainsbury’s supermarket. Alternatively, wander through stalls within market square, or take your pick of fresh produce grown or made by local independent sellers at the Farmer’s Market held every third Tuesday of the month.
- Serious about study
If you have primary school age children, High Oakham Primary School, which has been rated ‘good’ in the latest Ofsted report, is just a short walk away from our High Oakham Ridge development, taking away the stress of finding a parking space outside school at drop off and pick up! For older children, Mansfield also offers a range of secondary schools and colleges, which are well connected to the development via local bus routes. There’s also a campus for the Nottingham Trent University, whether it be for college leavers, or those looking for higher education courses to further their skills.
- Well connected
Mansfield railway station is just over a mile from the development, where you can park with ease. From there you can take regular trains to Nottingham and Worksop, both of which take just over 30 minutes. As for getting around in the car, Nottingham is just 14 miles to the south, Sheffield 25 miles to the north. If you’re travelling further afield, the M1 motorway just over 6 miles away ensuring you are well connected to the rest of the Midlands and beyond.
