Lancashire is surrounded by rolling valleys, rugged hills and coastal plains, along with busy urban centres and towns. Built on medieval and industrial heritage, Lancashire’s 1,189 square miles has plenty to offer its residents. When it comes to affordable homes and happy residents Ribble Valley in Lancashire, takes number two in the rankings, according to a recent collaborative survey by Hamptons International and The Telegraph. Even though it’s the largest area in the county, Ribble Valley is one of the UK’s least densely populated regions and – home to the Forest of Bowland – it boasts an area of outstanding beauty. Close to Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds, Lancashire also offers plenty of scope for commuters. It’s therefore a popular choice for those who want to combine city working with suburban or country dwelling, and access to plenty of beauty spots in leisure time. With 14 boroughs to choose from – including Blackburn, Blackpool, Chorley, Accrington, Ormskirk and the cities of Lancaster and Preston – Lancashire offers a location to suit every requirement when it comes to buying property.
