If you are looking for an affordable home to rent in Lancashire, you have come to the right place. Accent Housing is a housing association providing quality, affordable homes to a diverse range of people throughout England.
We currently have more than 20,000 homes spread across the North, East and South of the country, including many in Lancashire and surrounding areas.
Many of our residents need affordable, quality housing but cannot afford to buy a home and (understandably) don’t trust the insecurity of private renting. At Accent, we offer reasonably priced housing along with a promise to improve the lives of our residents.
Is Lancashire A Nice Place To Live?
Yes! Lancashire is an excellent place to live. It is home to a combination of thriving market towns steeped in history, cosy villages with friendly communities and bustling cities that are always on the up.
It boasts a selection of colleges and universities, including the University of Central Lancashire, Lancaster University and Edge Hill University. It also has a wide range of nurseries, primary and secondary schools, many of which have been deemed “Outstanding” by Ofsted. There is a fantastic choice of job opportunities and the larger cities of Manchester and Leeds are within commuting distance.
But the best feature of Lancashire has to be the abundance of gorgeous countryside. A whopping 80% of Lancashire is rural, meaning the county has some spectacular countryside on offer.
Whether you are an outdoor explorer or adrenaline seeker, you will find something to do on your weekends in Lancashire. Walking, rambling, cycling, climbing, sailing and even skiing (really!) can be enjoyed in Lancashire.
Thanks to its array of towns, cities and villages, Lancashire is home to a large calendar of events throughout the year. This includes food and drink festivals, agricultural shows, comedy events, music gigs and family events designed for the little ones.
The diverse county of Lancashire makes for an excellent place to call home, whether you’re a couple, family or elderly person.
