Strensall and Earswick villages
This again is a traditional village that sits on the banks of the River Foss about 7 miles to the north of York. The village is extremely popular with families and a big attraction is the Robert Wilkinson Primary Academy school which has an Ofsted Outstanding rating from November 2008 and was converted to an Academy within the last 5 years. The school then feeds into the Huntington School which was Ofsted rated Outstanding in December 2017.
There are a variety of house types in Strensall ranging from 1 bed quarter houses up to large family detached homes in the village with period properties found mainly on ‘The Village’. More modern property was built as the village expanded with the latest development to the north of the main street constructed by David Wilson Homes within the last 3 years.
The Strensall village enjoys various shops including a Tesco Express, a further convenience store, Boots pharmacy, butcher, hairdressers, fish and chip shop, chinese takeaway and 3 public houses.
If golf is your game then you are well catered for in Strensall with the highly regarded York Golf Club on the edge of the village. In addition there is York Golf Range which offers driving ranges and a 9 hole course.
There is also Strensall Sports Club that has 3 Floodlit Tennis Courts and is home to Strensall Tigers Football. The village sits on the edge of Strensall Common which offers lovely walks and wildlife close to the village with deer not an uncommon sight. Slightly further afield is the golf club at Sandburn Hall near Flaxton, which is a popular wedding venue and also has the delightful Tykes restaurant.
Historically a farming village, again on the banks of the River Foss, Earswick is located just off the York Ringroad making it handy to get in and out of the city centre and is on the bus routes from Strensall to York.
The village itself has a variety of housing from bungalows to detached family homes. It is just north of Huntington and the catchment areas for schools are both at Huntington with the primary school Ofsted rated Good in March 2013 and the Huntington School (11 to 18 year olds) rated Outstanding in December 2017.
Both these villages are ideally positioned to get on to the A64 (about 3 miles away) which gives access from Leeds to Scarborough via York and Malton.
There are major shopping centres nearby at Monks Cross and Vangarde with a selection of large supermarkets and stores including Sainsbury, ASDA, M&S (incl Food), ALDI, John Lewis, Next & Next Home, Primark, Debenhams, Clarks, BHS, Top Shop, Rodgers, Sports Direct and Boots as well as a variety of restaurants.
