Are you looking for a new home in Bradford? If you don't like the idea of privately renting, and can't afford to buy your own home, then renting an affordable home from Accent Housing in Bradford could be ideal for you.
Accent offers a range of affordable homes in Bradford and surrounding areas. In this blog, we explain why Bradford is such a good place to live and share our thoughts on some of the best places to call home.
Is Bradford A Good Place To Live
Bradford is an excellent place to live. It is affordable and there is always a wide range of decent properties available. It is close to the key destinations of Leeds and Huddersfield and it has great transport links to Sheffield and Manchester.
If you are working in Leeds, but need an affordable place to live, Bradford is ideal. Or if you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life whilst simultaneously enjoying the great outdoors, you will love Bradford.
For example, Lister Park and Peel Park are lovely outdoor areas in Bradford and the amazing landscape of Ilkley Moors is just 30 minutes down the road. The city is also well equipped for cyclists and has plenty of cycle paths and walking paths.
There are several “outstanding” schools in the area, as well as an abundance of things to do. The National Science And Media Museum makes for an excellent day out. And the Alhambra Theatre, St George's Hall, The Studio and King's Hall and Winter Garden offer an array of comedy shows, musicals and more.
If you love Asian cuisine, you’re in luck – Bradford has been named the “Curry Capital” of Britain SIX times! Bradford boasts a range of restaurants, cafes, microbreweries and bars.
Best Places To Live In Bradford: For Over 55’s
Accent Housing offers a wide range of sheltered accommodation schemes (also often referred to as Independent Living Schemes) for the over 55’s in Bradford. This includes Aprilia Court, Aurelia House, The Folly Hall Gardens, Hazelhurst Court, Morrell Court and Thornfield Hall.
Our sheltered housing schemes provide a safe, private and quiet place to call home. They feature a number of cosy one-bedroom flats and apartments, suitable for individuals and couples. Plus, they boast communal gardens, onsite parking and a 24/7 emergency repairs service.
Most of these schemes benefit from a Friendly Scheme Manager as well as a Lifetime Tenancy. The residents love the neighbourly atmosphere and the excellent locations, which situates them close to key amenities including shops and transport links.

Best Place To Live In Bradford: For Families And Couples
Affordable family housing is not easy to come by, especially in large cities. Thankfully, Accent Housing is always working hard to provide affordable, quality homes for families and couples in Bradford.
For example, 48 brand new Accent Housing homes are currently being developed in Eccleshill, Bradford. Eccleshill is an excellent area to live. It is nestled between Bradford and Leeds yet is close to the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales. It features great schools and a fantastic range of amenities including shops and leisure activities.
The 48 homes, which will provide affordable housing for rent and sale, are part of a huge development project being carried out by Keepmoat Homes. In total, there will 600 homes built on the development, which promises to be a real up and coming vibrant community.
