Perched 10 miles north of Preston, with great access via the M6 and the wonderful Forest of Bowland to the east, Garstang is one of the areas Dewhurst Homes has great knowledge of.
It’s a small Fairtrade market town with a population under 5,000 and has property for sale for every budget – though it is more expensive than many parts of Preston with prices typically ranging from £100,000 to in excess of £1.5 million.
Garstang is relatively built up given its rural feel. Lying on the River Wyre, River Calder and the Lancaster Canal, Garstang is situated close to the A6 road, the M6 motorway, and the West Coast Main Line, between Lancaster and Preston. It lies on the eastern edge of the Fylde, and the beautiful Forest of Bowland is not far to the east.
Great for families
If you’re looking for a place to settle with children, Garstang could be on your list of places to move to. It has a range of primary schools and two high schools, with sixth form provision in Lancaster, Blackpool or Preston itself.
