The Ribble Valley in Lancashire is perhaps one of the most underrated beauty spots in the whole of the UK. Its wild countryside is unspoilt by tourists, and its towns and villages have much to offer to families and those looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Nevertheless, a move to the Ribble Valley is not a move away from civilisation, as the region contains everything you might want or need: shopping, community, good schools, beautiful scenery, and houses to suit all tastes and budgets. Here are some of the best houses for sale Ribble Valley has to offer.
There are two large and thriving market towns in the Ribble Valley; Clitheroe and Longridge. They boast attractive stone and red-brick detached houses and terraces, as well as a range of comfortable new-builds. Clitheroe, the county seat, is slightly more remote, while Longridge has excellent road and rail links with the rest of the area. However, both towns are good options for commuters working in Preston, Blackburn, Skipton, and even slightly further afield in Manchester. Both towns have a range of amenities and good schools at both primary and secondary level. These include Longridge Primary, Ribblesdale High, and Clitheroe Royal Grammar, which was founded in 1554.
There are a number of beautiful and well-connected villages with attractive properties for sale in the Ribble Valley, such as Whalley, Wiswell, Sawley, and Hurst Green. Those looking to buy in the area can take their pick of whitewashed and stone cottages, or take advantage of the variety of new builds in these areas. There are many good schools in and near the Ribble valley villages. Hurst Green, situated close to the independent Day and Boarding school Stonyhurst College, is somewhat of a hotspot for parents. Whalley is home to another good school; Oakhill College.
Delving further still into the stunning Lancashire countryside there are many hidden gems to be discovered, in the form of picturesque farms and cottages, period properties, and stunning barn conversions.
Whether you’re looking for a place to start a family, a place to retire, or just somewhere that combines good amenities and community with a slower pace of life, then the Ribble Valley is the ideal place for your next move.
