Great apartments for a great retirement – in Greater Manchester
There’s much more to living in Greater Manchester than the city centre itself. All around the outskirts, and out towards Cheshire, the Peak District and the Moors, there are attractive suburbs, towns and villages where life is peaceful and relaxing – and very well connected!
Many towns are popular with the well-off and local celebrities – and it’s easy to see why. They are superb locations, many with historic civic buildings and excellent local amenities, plus the advantages of good communications links to the artistic, cultural, entertainment and shopping highlights of Manchester itself.
Of course, there is more to this part of the country than just one city. The coast and mountains of North Wales, the splendours of the Lake District, the stunning landscapes of the Peaks and the Moors – are all within reach for a day out or a short break.
