What Is Waterthorpe Like

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I currently rent in Hillsborough by the park and I am looking to purchase a house. We have found one we like in Waterthorpe but I have no idea about the area. My partner has a new job in Halfway so we are looking at ideally moving to the other side of Sheffield in order to save time on her commute. 

Unfortunately all the posts about Waterthorpe are over 10 years old so hoping for some more up to date opinions.


Thanks in advance!

Waterthorpe - a longish drive to anywhere interesting?

Area around Hawk and Dove pub and shops is a bit rough as is the little Maytree estate

Positives -

Crystal peaks nearby, so shopping and transport pretty good. 

Lots of open space, but also a lot has been gobbled up for housing over time so cannot be taken for granted.

Most of the houses are pretty new built (within 40 years) so don't have the issues associated with older properties.

 

Negatives -

As someone said not so nice within a 1/4 mile of Hawk and Dove. Also Westfield close which also has it's issues.

Not great for pubs. Milestone or Hawk and Dove nearest, neither up to much. There is a Wetherspoons coming to ex Damons though.

 Can get very busy around Drakehouse at rush hour.

Getting into town and back at rush hours very poor.

Schools choice is Eckington or Westfield.

 

 

I have lived there on Roydfield close but many moons ago. We did get burgled (before we actually moved in) and also had the car broken into more than once, but as I say that was 30 years ago.
