In the recent Sunday Times’ best places to live in the UK 2017 survey, Manchester has been ranked as England most exciting and liveable big city. The survey is broken into regions and the north west has fared particularly well. Areas such as Ancoats, Chorlton, Ramsbottom, Saddleworth, Knutsworth and Lymm all feature prominently in the list.
Here are some of the comments that the Sunday Times has made about these areas:
Ramsbottom – increasingly desirable market town with fantastic places to eat
Saddleworth – full of old fashioned Yorkshire charm
Lymm – properly pretty and worth living in for the duck race alone
Ancoats – a surprisingly smart residential district
