Audley Scarcroft Park

This luxury retirement village will stand in Scarcroft, a leafy village in West Yorkshire, not far from the cosmopolitan city of Leeds.

It’s no coincidence that Scarcroft Park’s design complements the surrounding area, both in style and grandeur. After all, Scarcroft is home to one of the most desirable streets in West Yorkshire.

All 172 luxurious two-bedroom retirement properties are being designed to enhance and compliment the local surroundings.

The surrounding area

Scarcroft is a charming historical village set in large woodlands, eight miles from Leeds city centre. Audley Scarcroft Park itself has been sympathetically designed around Scarcroft Lodge, a Grade II* listed stately home built by a Quaker wool merchant, Newman Cash in 1830.

Local historical points of interest include the ruins of Roundhay Park Castle, a folly based on a medieval gateway that overlooks Waterloo Lake and is surrounded by acres of rolling green space and numerous fascinating abbeys and historical sites.

If you like to stay local, it’s around a 20-minute drive from Scarcroft village to a wide variety of boutique shops, a Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and a fine selection of restaurants.

Nearby, Leeds station has direct links to central London and Leeds Bradford airport is only a 30-minute drive away.
