Rochdale town centre is compact and easy to explore, and is an area of regeneration and continued investment. It lies at the foothills of the South Pennines on the River Roche and includes the municipal boroughs of Heywood, Littleborough, Middleton, Milnrow, Newhey, and Wardle.

High density urban areas and semi-rural locations ensure there’s a property available for families, singles, or couples looking to get away from it all while remaining in close proximity to all modern amenities. Multiple public parks provide entertainment for the young ones, and over 40 schools rated from good to outstanding provide excellent educational opportunities.

For people that enjoy shopping there are a two main shopping centres in Rochdale – The Rochdale Exchange and the Wheatsheaf shopping centre, both offering major retailers and smaller independent shops.

The M62 motorway provides fast access to Oldham, and trains regularly run to Manchester Victoria, Halifax, Dewsbury, Bradford, Leeds, Burnley, and Accrington. Trains on the Oldham and Rochdale line operate every 12 minutes, and bus services are also frequent.

Fine dining restaurants are all within close proximity, and there are also plenty of socialising opportunities at any one of Littleborough’s multiple pubs and bars.

If you enjoy rustic charm and simple country life, then you’ll love Milnrow or Middleton, as they provide that type of lifestyle in spades without sacrificing any of your modern comforts.

Rochdale is ideal for investors in property for two main reasons. One, the property prices are currently well below average in comparison to other areas in Greater Manchester. And two, due to increasing investment in transport and leisure facilities the area will slowly begin to flourish. Commuter links to Manchester and Leeds are fantastic, and being situated on the outskirts of the Pennines there are boundless country walks on the doorstep.
