Horwich, Bolton

If you're looking for houses for sale in Horwich, this guide will give you an idea on the area and what to expect by us, your local Estate Agent

Horwich is becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons and as Estate Agents living on the border of Horwich & Lostock, we know exactly why. It is great for commuters, situated just off the M61 Junction 6, it provides excellent links to Manchester City Centre, Trafford Centre (which on a clear run can take 15 minutes), The Lakes, Preston....the list is endless. And not only that, there is Horwich Parkway Train Station which travels directly into Manchester and takes approximately 20-25 minutes. The trains run frequently, great for a last minute trip into Manchester! 

It hosts the largest retail/leisure park in the UK, Middlebrook Retail Park, which is also home to Bolton Wanderers F.C. You can find an array of shops to suit everyone, this map is current as of March 2021.

Further into Horwich, there is the main high street, Winter Hey Lane & Lee Lane, where you will find local shops, such as the butchers, card shops, opticians, delicatessen, boutiques & plenty of cafes, bars & restaurants. It really does cater for everyone day & night and is a firm favourite of ours to shop & socialise. 

For those that love to explore, you also have plenty of beautiful walks on your doorstep, such as Rivington, which we have visited for many years and still each time come across a new path & walk. There is also the top barn, lower barn & the bowling club to stop for a refreshment on your walk and they are all equally charming in their own way and offer a perfect pit stop. 

High Rid Reservoir is also a firm favourite of ours, situated on the outskirts of Horwich. It's a great place for a walk, we often walk our dogs round the reservoir and take a picnic in the summer months, it's so tranquil and you honestly can't believe that within minutes, you're in the hustle and bustle of Horwich.
