Searching for affordable housing to rent in Lancashire? You're in the right place. Here at Accent Housing, we provide quality, affordable housing to rent in Lancashire and the surrounding areas.
Many residents don’t trust the lack of security that comes with private renting. Plus, it is notoriously expensive. But Accent Housing is a housing association you can trust and benefit from.
Our aim is not to just provide you with a quality home, we also promise to improve your quality of life.
Lancashire is an excellent place to call home, whether you're single, a couple, family, or elderly. In this article, we are discussing what it is like to live in Lancashire, and the choices you have when renting through a Housing Association.
Is Lancashire A Nice Place To Live?
Yes! Lancashire is an excellent place to live. You could say it has everything, from thriving cities and towns to cosy villages, seaside beauty spots and to top it off an abundance of the countryside.
80% of Lancashire is rural, meaning the county has some spectacular countryside on offer. We would say this is the counties best feature. Outdoor sports, including mountain biking, quad biking, hiking, outdoor swimming, and golf, are available in Lancashire.
With an array of cultures, Lancashire has a packed schedule of events throughout the year. This includes food and drink festivals, family-centred events, railways attractions and more!
You will be happy to know that Lancashire is one of the safest places to live, with a survey finding 87% of respondents claiming their local area to be a safe place to live.
In fact, the South Ribble Valley area was actually named one of the safest places to live in the North West!
Affordable Homes In Lancashire
When searching for a home, affordability is a very important factor when considering where to live. And Lancashire offers you plenty of affordability.
According to a survey from The Gazette, several locations within Lancashire are amongst the top ten most affordable places to live in the country – ranked off price-to-earnings ratio.
Accent Housing has properties spread across various locations in Lancashire. This includes apartments, flats, bungalows and sheltered housing (adapted to accommodate the needs of people 55 and over).
Here’s a list of the locations we provide affordable housing in Lancashire:
If you’re looking to move to the heart of Cumbria, then look no further than Barrow-In-Furness. Barrow-In-Furness is one of the most beautiful places to live in Lancashire, it has spectacular views of the whole coastline at Piel island, a wealth of wildlife and stunning walks. Plus, it’s affordable!
It is a town on the rise, with a surplus of 100m already being spent to regenerate and develop it is a place we would recommend calling home.
If you would prefer a location more inland, with the same affordability, then Burnley is the place for you. With the best college in the UK and a university full of courses, you have plenty of opportunities to grow.
Burnley isn’t short of culture, with the football club being at the heart of the people. In the centre of town, you have an ever-growing shopping facility, flourishing cafés and a fantastic choice of restaurants.
