Location, Location, Location - Leyland
Leyland, a traditional market town located in the South Ribble district, is becoming an ever-popular location for house hunters. Bustling yet retaining rural aspects, Leyland is only six miles away from the city of Preston.
For foodies, Leyland offers a whole host of eateries to try out a range of tempting cuisines. Charnock Farm’s restaurant is a stunning renovated farm house, with a high vaulted ceiling and exposed oak beams. Guests can tuck into European-inspired dishes, ranging from sharing platters brimming with quintessentially Lancashire nibbles such as Lancashire Cheese & Onion Bon Bons and Black Pudding Quail Scotch Egg, to exciting Sea Bream with Samphire and a Prosecco Cream Sauce! For those who love their pizza and pasta, head over to Antonellos who have every type of garlic bread imaginable!
For things to do when the weekend rolls around, why not take a stroll through Worden Park, Leyland’s very own secret garden! The largest park in South Ribble, Worden Park is an expanse of more than 60 acres of meadows, woodlands and playing fields, and boasts stunning historic walled gardens which date back to 1777. For the kids, there’s the largest playground in Leyland with 36 pieces of fun playing equipment, a hedge maze and a model railway. Leyland also has a great range of education establishments including several excellent primary, junior and senior schools.
There’s also plenty of sports to get stuck into such as, Fox Lane Sports & Social Club has a year round calendar of activities including cricket, crown green tennis, bowls, junior football, hockey, snooker and pool. Anyone can become a member, enjoy the outdoors and meet new friends through sport. There’s also the Leyland Sports Association for those looking to take up the classic British school sport: netball!
A great feature of Leyland is being able to have the quieter feel of a town, yet being so close the hustle and bustle of a city with Preston right on your doorstep. Only a six minute journey by train and just under 20 minutes by car, residents can get their shopping fix at either of Preston’s shopping centres, filled with high street brands. Those looking for some culture could visit one of Preston’s six museums or Guild Hall theatre, before grabbing a sophisticated cocktail at FORUM.
