Billington is a delightful rural Lancashire village between Whalley and Langho where you and your family can enjoy a whole new quality of life. Within easy reach of a number of Lancashire towns, as well as the cities of Preston and Manchester, yet a world away in terms of lifestyle, Billington offers an oasis of calm and charm.
While Billington enjoys a wonderful location, this is no rural outpost. The A59 is a couple of minutes drive from the development linking to Preston in just over 13 miles, while Blackburn, Accrington and Clitheroe are all even closer at around 7 miles each.
The M65 can also be accessed easily, connecting you with the extensive North West motorway network and Manchester just 30 miles away. Trains from nearby Whalley Station connect to Manchester in just over an hour, Preston in 45 minutes and Blackburn in just 15 minutes across the 7 million bricks of the impressive 48 arch Whalley Viaduct. A small car park at the station allows you to drive in from Billington.
You’ll find a friendly local store in the village for all your day to day needs, while adjoining Whalley village has a great selection of mostly independent shops and also a Spar store and a post office. There are plenty of restaurants including Breda Murphy’s award winning restaurant and lots of bars and coffee shops. For your weekly shop, Great Harwood has Tesco and Clitheroe has Booths, Sainsbury's and Tesco stores.
When it comes to a well earned shopping spree, you’ll be spoiled for choice with major shopping centres in Blackburn, Preston, Accrington and Burnley all within easy reach.
For GP services, register with Sabden and Whalley Medical Group on King Street in Whalley, while dentists can also be found on King Street at McFarlane Dental Practice.
For your younger children you can choose between a number of excellent local primary schools, including Whalley CofE Primary, or St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary and St Leonards CofE Primary in nearby Langho. Older pupils can choose between nearby St Augustine’s Roman Catholic High or Ribblesdale School in Clitheroe. This part of Lancashire is also lucky to play host to a number of nationally renowned independent schools including Oakhill College in Whalley and the magnificent Stonyhurst College.
The active amongst you will find plenty of opportunities for sport and leisure in the local area with a leisure centre at Mercer Hall in Great Harwood and Oakhill fitness club, gym and spa in Whalley. You’ll also enjoy a choice of challenging golf courses with Whalley, Mytton and Clitheroe all teeing off within a short drive.
With the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales National Park right on your doorstep there are endless miles of rolling hills to explore by car, on foot, by mountain bike or even climbing. If you’d prefer a day beside the seaside, then head for the Fylde Coast with its miles of golden sands.
For evening entertainment, Blackburn and Accrington both have multi-screen cinemas, or if you prefer live shows, check out the local theatres in Burnley, Pendle and Blackburn. You’ll also find countless charming country inns to discover in the surrounding countryside, most of which do great food to complement their real ales and of course plenty of variety on your doorstep in Billington and Whalley.
