Sale Named as the Fourth Most Desirable Place to Live in England

March 9, 2017, By Slater Heelis

Sale, home of Slater Heelis, has been named as the fourth most desirable place to live in England in a study undertaken by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) and Royal Mail. We can’t say we’re surprised, it is great here.

The research was taken from a range of different data sources, including the 2011 Census, Department for Communities and Local Government’s Indices of Multiple Deprivation, General land Use database and a wide array of data from the Office of National Statistics. Riding high in fourth place, Sale was also the only place from Greater Manchester to make their list.

What makes Sale so great?

Amazing schools






Almost every school in Sale is rated ‘Outstanding’, making it the perfect place for a young family looking to give their children the best possible start in life. Alongside this, we’re also within an easily commutable distance of Altrincham and the highly-rated schools there.

Green spaces

Sale Water Park







Sale is absolutely brimming with large areas of green space and woodland with places such as Sale Water Park, Walton Park and Worthington Park being just a short distance away. The canal running through Sale also makes for a great place to take a peaceful stroll, giving you that countryside feel whilst being just 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Manchester city centre.

Affordable housing

House for sale









Unlike many other areas of the UK, Sale offers a huge variety of housing suitable for people of all incomes. With homes for sale in a great area from £150,000 it’s the perfect place for first-time buyers and young families to purchase their first home. And if you make a lot of money and want to upgrade? You can purchase bigger, fancier houses for every price range up to £900,000, guaranteeing your position as the envy of all of your friends.

Never running out of things to do

Sale Waterside





Living in Sale means you’ll never be short of ways to entertain yourself, with everything from art exhibitions and theatres if you’re looking to take in a bit of culture, to golf courses for the more sport-inclined person and great restaurants for the foodies, Sale has a bit of everything.

Alongside that, you can be right in the heart of Manchester city centre for a spot of shopping in just 20 minutes or take in a football match or the cricket at Old Trafford in 10 minutes thanks to the brilliant Metrolink (which has three tram stops in the Sale area!).
