Close to the city centre and beautiful Yorkshire countryside, you’ll have the best of both worlds at Firth Point. Savour the peace and quiet by the lakes and fountains in Greenhead Park or make the most of living in the hometown of rugby league by watching a match at the famous John Smith’s Stadium. Take a trip just out of town to Castle Hill and climb up to the heritage-listed Victoria Tower to admire the views from this ancient monument. Back in the city, dig out rare music records at Vinyl Tap or pick out a local designer piece in Byram Arcade.
The University of Huddersfield is just a few minutes’ walk from Firth Point, and the train and bus stations are within 15 minutes. Save time by hopping on your bike (you can store it securely at Firth Point). You can be in the town centre in little over five minutes, where you’ll find cafés, restaurants and nightlife perfectly suited to a student budget.
When you want to explore further afield, make the short journey to the quaint town of Holmfirth to pay homage to the cult TV seriesLast of the Summer Wine. Take the train to Leeds in 20 minutes or Manchester in 30 for a faster pace of life.
A homely atmosphere awaits you back at Firth Point, where you’ll share a sociable kitchen and living area in a flat of four to six bedrooms. Relax on the sofa as you chat about your day and cook your favourite recipes together. These communal areas are cleaned fortnightly to keep them looking their best.
