Croftlands is a purpose built development of 27 one bedroom apartments, set in attractive landscaped gardens. Each home has been modernised to a high standard with modern fitted kitchens and level access shower rooms.

Ground floor apartments have patios and first floor apartments have Juliet balconies. The scheme benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.

As an extra care scheme, Croftlands is ideal for anyone who needs a little more help. Our Extra Care schemes provide you with safe, secure independent living and a busy social scene but also provide a daily three course lunch in the lounge and domestic assistants to help keep your home clean.

WDH’s Care Link emergency contact system is wired in to each home ensuring access to assistance 24 hours a day

Conveniently located close to Ossett town centre, Croftlands is just a short bus ride – from supermarkets, local shops, pubs, clubs, churches, hairdressers, a fish and chip shop, chemists, butcher and a variety of sandwich shops.

All apartments are linked to a fire alarm which is tested regularly.

Local amenities

There are local shops in Ossett town centre which is a short bus ride away from the bus stop outside the scheme.


Across all our schemes we like to help create a strong sense of community, and we do this by bringing together like-minded people through our programme of regular activities. Residents can enjoy bingo, attend coffee mornings, or take part in quiz nights or monthly social outings.


Croftlands has been designed to accommodate a wide range of people’s needs. As well as handrails and braille signage throughout, it also has a lift and disabled access.


At Croftlands support is available when you need it. With an experienced Extra Care scheme manager and our Care Link system installed in every home as standard, residents can live with the peace of mind that in the event of an emergency, support can be summoned immediately. Residents will receive the same service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round from WDH. Residents can also tailor the support they receive to suit them, just speak to your Extra Care scheme manager about what suits you and your lifestyle.


We know that your security is a priority, and that’s why entry to Croftlands is controlled through a secure fob system. We also operate security cameras around the scheme.
