If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of city centre living without having to live right out in the sticks, this next property’s for you!

This three-bedroom stone cottage has a lovely village location in Mossley. This Tameside town is surrounded by green open spaces, perfect for those long Sunday morning walks.

Inside, there’s a lounge, dining kitchen and two large cellars downstairs. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, a large loft room and a shower room – so you actually get quite a lot of space for your money.

It’s a great opportunity to get your DIY on and make your first home your own.

In terms of location, it’s positioned just a stone’s throw from the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

The canal boasts picturesque walks along its towpaths through Wigan’s numerous flashes (such as Scotman’s Flash & Horrock’s Flash) which lie just 1.5 – 2 miles away.
