There are plenty of reasons to love Lancashire; we could go on all day about why we love the area and what it has to offer, but the thing is… we’re already here!
For many people, Lancashire provides the perfect home away from home when it comes to holidays, and because of its vast size and variety of places, it’s pretty much ideal for a getaway at any time of year!
Here at Holgates Ribble Valley, we’ve got a range of holiday homes for sale in this incredible county – and here are our reasons why we think you should join us here!
The Lancashire countryside is quite something; with vast open spaces, wildlife-rich woodlands, coastal regions and an incredible view of the Lakeland fells along the west coast, there’s an area for everyone to enjoy.
While there are a few major towns and cities around, Lancashire still stays true to its rural roots, and many attractions and places of interest are out in the country where visitors can enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of city and town life.
Lancashire’s diverse surroundings are both striking and beautiful – and a welcome change from the dull, dreary monotony of urban life. If you’re looking for a true home-away-from-home which reignites your love for nature and the outdoors, we guarantee that Lancashire’s beautiful surrounding landscape will do just that.
Situated in the North West, Lancashire is actually in the perfect location for those looking to see more of the UK.
To the north, there’s the Lake District, right on Lancashire’s doorstep. This area is not to be missed, especially for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as fell walking and kayaking. There’s plenty to see and do in the Lakes, and it’s all within a few hours drive, making it a great day out opportunity for those basing themselves in Lancashire.
To the south, there’s Manchester, the northern powerhouse and main city in the north. Great for shopping, partying, socialising – Manchester is a great social hub in the north, and is easily accessible from Lancashire by car or by train.
To the east, you’ve got the Forest of Bowland and the start of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Much like the Lake District, these areas are a haven for those looking to get out and enjoy the natural countryside vibe. Leeds isn’t too far away and easily accessible by train or by car from pretty much anywhere within Lancashire.
Lancashire has a great rail network, with connections to many of the major cities in the UK, making it ideal for those wanting to get away for a bit, but always be able to get back home within a few hours when needed.
One of the main reasons we love Lancashire is the local communities – you’ll find it hard to meet friendlier people anywhere in the UK!
Proud of their northern heritage and excited to show off their county to visitors, you’ll always find a warm welcome when you visit Lancashire. Whether you need help finding somewhere to eat, need advice or are simply looking for some good conversation, Lancashire locals are usually more than happy to help.
