Ramsbottom is a hive of culture, tucked away among rolling hills and stunning landscapes, so there’s something for everyone. A bustling, traditional market town, packed with independent retailers and award-winning bars, restaurants and cafes, including one of the UK’s top 100 restaurants, Levanter. Sitting in the middle of the historic East Lancashire Railway, a 12 ½ heritage railway line that runs through the stunning Lancashire countryside, from Heywood to Rawtenstall, Ramsbottom has all the ease of town living, combined with the countryside right on your doorstep.
The local community in Ramsbottom is perfect for individuals, couples and families, because of its tight-knit community spirit, friendly locals and thriving town centre. With outstanding schools, easy access to the M60 and M66 motorways and excellent local shops and supermarkets, Ramsbottom has everything you need on your doorstep, while the countless rural countryside trails add a scenic touch to your daily exercise. Personally, we love walking along the river Irwell, through the Redisher Woods. Walks in the Burrs Country Park, and up Holcombe Hill to see the historic Peel Tower are also great for beautiful country views.
The wide variety of events and festivals going on in Ramsbottom the whole year round mean you won’t ever be short of something to do. From weekly farmer’s markets, the Ramsbottom music festival in September and Christmas markets every December, to the more unusual, like the Chocolate Festival every April, the 1940s War Weekend in May and the World Black Pudding Throwing Championships every September, there’s always something going on! We always go to the Chocolate Festival as a company as a sweet little treat, and let us tell you, we absolutely love it.
