Living in Lancashire

Something for everyone

Lancashire is diverse in terms of communities, amenities and landscapes. It's a county made up of unspoilt hillsides, colourful cities and coastal beaches, providing an array of scenery for homebuyers to choose from. You only need to take a few steps out of your new home to see some of the North’s stunning settings.

Sparkling Blackpool is one of its top spots, with the famous Pleasure Beach and three Victorian piers that stretch over the sea. Experience the magic of the Illuminations and take family and friends on a day trip through the city when they visit your new house - less than 10 minutes on the train from Lytham St Annes and Poulton-le-Fyde.

Lancaster itself is nothing to frown about, either. Situated on the River Lune, the leading city boasts a top-15 UK university, a majestic castle, and two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also surrounded by smaller, quaint market towns such as Chorley. The stark contrasts you find throughout the North are mirrored within this county itself, meaning that you’re sure to find a new build in an area that you’ll love.
