Location Of The Day: Rossendale, Lancashire

Posted 22 November 2022 by Helen Christie

The district of Rossendale in Lancashire could tick all the boxes as a place to buy a brand new home...

Location will always be an important factor in the house-hunting process, and the WhatHouse.com team is on the lookout around Britain for some of the best locations to consider purchasing a new build home...

Situated about 19 miles north of Manchester city centre, Rossendale is a district between Blackburn and Rochdale, comprising a number of towns and villages and boasting a scenic valley around the River Irwell. The countryside, combined with good road links in the A56 and M65 nearby, make it a popular way to combine a rural feel with great connectivity to major towns and cities. For families in the area, there are a number of secondary schools, including All Saints’ Catholic High School, Haslingden High School and Alder Grange School. 

If Rossendale sounds like it could be the location for you, there are two new build developments in the district with a range of homes currently available.

Newchurch Meadows was built by Hurstwood Homes in the popular town of Rawtenstall in the scenic Rossendale Valley. The development is less than a mile from Rawtenstall’s centre, and offers a collection of three-, four- and five-bedroom homes built in traditional stone, in eight different styles. The location is ideal for commuters, Rawstenstall is less than 20 miles from Manchester, and the M66, M60 and M62 are easily accessible with connections to Bradford and Leeds. 

Known for being one of the most attractive towns in the Rossendale Valley, Rawtenstall has plenty to offer residents, with contemporary restaurants, independent boutiques, pubs and cafes.

Prices at Newchurch Meadows start from £525,000.

From Hollins Homes comes The Foothills, a beautiful collection of 80 three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, each designed to compliment the local heritage and breathtaking scenery. This impressive location offers rural living with impressive landscapes and plenty of outdoor space on the doorstep, perfect for hiking, walking and biking. The development is professionally landscaped, and each home is beautifully styled inside and out, with high-specification and finish. 

The Foothills (Hollins Homes)

The development is in the village of Loveclough, just 10 minutes drive from Rossendale town centre. Ideal for commuters, Burnley and Accrington are a short drive away, and Blackburn, Preston and Manchester are easily accessible. 

Prices at The Foothills start from £289,995.
