As we continue our blog series highlighting some of the most sought after places to live in the UK, it’s time to pay a visit to Longridge, eight miles from the centre of Preston.
Located on the southern edge of the small Victorian town, our new Roman’s Crossing development has recently opened its doors and is already proving a popular location with discerning house hunters seeking the best of both worlds.
Although located in a peaceful semi-rural setting near to the outstandingly beautiful Forest of Bowland, the development offers excellent access to the bustling centre of Preston with direct rail links to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Manchester.  With the M6 also less than five miles away, there’s little surprise that the Roman’s Crossing development is quickly becoming one of the region’s most popular locations.
With a beautiful range of quality three, four and five bedroom homes, Roman’s Crossing offers an opportunity to enjoy contemporary, energy efficient living in a traditional village setting.  The development has also been cleverly designed to foster a sense of community, a popular feature with families, young professionals and retired couples alike.
Those with young children have easy access to three highly regarded primary schools (Longridge C of E Primary, Barnacre Road Primary and St Wilfrid’s RC Primary) all within easy walking distance as well as two secondary schools in the town.  In addition, there are excellent medical and dental facilities within close proximity, offering reassuring support when needed.
For those looking to enjoy a more active social life, Roman’s Crossing is also conveniently located near the centre of town where there is a selection of everyday shops as well as a wide variety of places to eat, drink and socialise including restaurants, delis and traditional pubs.  The Palace cinema is also a popular movie and live entertainment venue.  
In addition to the shopping and a regular farmers’ market, the area has easy access to leisure facilities including the beautiful Longridge Gold Club.  For those seeking some solitude or peace and quiet, there are a number of local heritage trails providing an excellent way for walkers and cyclists to get to know the area.
Whether looking to work, rest or play Roman’s Crossing is popular with prospective house buyers for simply offering the best of both worlds.
