Welcome to Woodland Croft, traditionally styled family homes in East Yorkshire created by Linden Homes.
Woodland Croft is a wonderful collection of 140 new homes in a highly sought after area of East Yorkshire. Hessle, nestled close to the banks of the River Humber on the outskirts of Hull, is the location for Linden Homes’ desirable, exciting new development.
A stunning selection of carefully designed two, three and four-bedroom homes in a range of styles to suit all lifestyle requirements and tastes will make up the development off Swanland Road and Boothferry Road.
Residents will benefit from the best of both worlds – a fantastic new build home in a bustling location as well as an existing woodlands walk on the edge of the development.
The development will mix the modern with the traditional in terms of house designs and the overall feel of the site, which is expected to attract everyone from first time buyers and young professionals as well as growing families.
Designer kitchens and bathrooms, energy efficiency fittings are among the many benefits of our high-specification new homes.

Hessle is renowned for its excellent schools and colleges, and is home to Hessle High School, which has Specialist Science College status.
The position of Hessle town means that this is the perfect location for those working in Hull – just five miles along the A1105 Boothferry Road by car or bus. It is also less than a mile from the Humber Bridge. Hessle has the convenience of the railway station with quick access to Leeds.
Its close proximity to the motorway network means you are never far away from other major centres like Beverley, York and Leeds.
But don’t just take our word for it – come and see for yourself just what is available.
There is much more to Hessle than first meets the eye.
Perfectly positioned to enjoy the numerous benefits the town and its surroundings have to offer – there is much more to Hessle than first meets the eye. With the hub of the town known as ‘The Square’, it boasts a wealth of shops and amenities – as well as a refurbished bus station, which runs regular services into the centre of Hull.
Major focal points in the town include the English Heritage designated Grade I listed Hessle All Saints Church and Hessle Town Hall.
Well served educationally by a number of primary and secondary schools, these include Hessle High School – which has some interesting history. The Upper School site is centred around a building donated to the Education Authority by Titanic survivor Algernon Barkworth.
In more modern times the town has been a centre for shipbuilding, and many of the local attractions in the Hessle, Humber and Hull areas are dedicated to, or recognise, its important history.
However, for those who enjoy a gentler pace – and are fans of the great outdoors, the very popular Humber Bridge Country Park is a 48- acre wood with open meadows and wildlife.
Perfectly positioned on the outskirts of Hessle, the park is THE place to take the children to let off steam or to simply enjoy the great outdoors. Experience its nature and wildlife trails and the many events held throughout the seasons.
Hessle is also the start of the The Yorkshire Wolds Way – one of the country’s most beautiful national trails. It runs 79 miles from Hessle to Filey around the Yorkshire Wolds and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007.
For something even more leisurely, Hessle Golf Club provides a superb course, offering hospitality days and social events.
Venture a little further afield into Hull itself, and there is the opportunity to delve into the history of this vibrant city, thanks to a wealth of modern day attractions charting the past. One of the most popular attractions is The Deep – which has put Hull in the major league of visitor destinations in the UK.
This iconic building, which boasts one of Europe’s deepest tanks containing a stunning collection of sharks and other exotic species and the deepest viewing tunnel in the world, was designed by world class architects Sir Terry Farrell and partners and towers over 30 metres high above the River Humber.
Vintage and open top bus tours over the Humber Bridge are a must in the summer months – with buses leaving every hour, calling at the northern Humber Bridge exhibition area, Hessle Foreshore and then over the bridge to Barton On Humber. You may also be lucky enough to take a ride on the 1949 bus which was used in the hit Yorkshire-based TV series, Heartbeat.
And if vintage vehicles are of interest, the Street Life Museum in Hull charts the 200- year history of transport in Hull. Moving back a little closer to home, and steeped in local history, is Wilberforce House - the birthplace of William Wilberforce, famous campaigner against the slave trade. Admission to Wilberforce House is free and the museum tells the story of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its abolition, as well as dealing with contemporary slavery. Galleries also offer a fascinating glimpse into West African culture.
