Living in Rossendale

Discover a quality of work-life balance in the South Pennines

One of the striking things about living in the charming Rossendale Valley is the invaluable work-life balance that can be offered. It is the perfect location to take in a natural country scene and enjoy the ambience in the coffee shops, markets and microbreweries in the friendly town centres.

You can head for a stroll straight after work, cycle along the trails or horse ride along bridleways which overlook the dramatic landscapes. Embrace the adrenaline attractions at the Water-ski Academy, Grip & Go and the Ski & Snowboard Centre or simply hop on the heritage railway with a pleasant steam train experience through the countryside, stopping at the picturesque village of Irwell Vale.
