Ossett Guide


Ossett is a quaint little town located in the scenic Wakefield District of West Yorkshire. Although there are not very many sights within the town itself, it is close to some of Yorkshire’s more interesting places.

Ossett has recently made a name for itself due to its new brewery, which has been pumping out top-notch beers since 1998. Take a tour and sample some of the unique and award winning flavours.

Explore Ossett

Take a trip to the magnificant National Coal Mining Museum in nearby Wakefield. Tourists get the option to be lowered around 250 feet underground to get a feel for what conditions would have been like for coal miners during the coal mining period.

There are numerous restaurants and pubs to choose from in Ossett. If you’re a football fanatic, why not cheer on the Ossett Town Football Club at the local stadium.

The Wakefield District’s Country Parks offer opportunities for walking, bird watching, fishing and orienteering, particularly at Anglers Country Park with the Waterton Countryside Discovery Centre and Newmillerdam with its historic boathouse.

If you have the time, be sure to take a trip to the walled city of York, where you can wander through the medieval alleys, castle ruins, tucked-away churches, riverside gardens and topnotch museums. A short drive north of the city takes you to Castle Howard, one of the country's grandest stately homes. The colossal main house was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh in 1699 and took almost forty years to complete. Vanbrugh’s extravagant taste can be seen in the palatial Great Hall and throughout the estate’s thousand-acre grounds. Closer to Ossett is Bretton Hall, another beautiful country house to stroll around and enjoy its grounds.


There is no railway station in Ossett, but trains from nearby Leeds run every 40 minutes to London’s King Cross Station, taking approximately 2.5 hours. Leeds also has a modern international airport, making it that much easier to reach Ossett. Ossett can be reached by car from Highways A58 and A644.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
