Glossop is an old market town set in the beautiful semi-rural area of the peak district. Walkers and cyclists regularly enjoy the rural, hilly views and superb scenery. A beautiful part of the UK countryside, yet the town is just 15 miles from Manchester city centre. There is easy access to Manchester Piccadilly and the town is a further 20 miles from Sheffield.

In and around Glossop there are a wealth of grade two listed buildings and conservation areas which prove an attractive draw for those wanting to escape from the busy nearby cities of Manchester and Sheffield. Recently there has been an increase in new developments, which means choice between old and new is expanding. So, whether you prefer a bijoux cottage or a large 5 bedroom executive family home, Glossop really does cater for all.

If you are new to the area and have children to consider, Glossop has a plethora of excellent primary and secondary schools to choose from. Such as St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy on Sunlaws Street and the brand new Glossopdale School on Newshaw Lane.

In terms of socialising, being just 35 minutes from Manchester on the train means you can take advantage of the fantastic nightlife the city has to offer. Alternatively, if you prefer not to venture as far, the town has some great independent eateries. The Bulls Head on Old Road is great for traditional home cooked food and a warm friendly atmosphere, or to tickle those taste buds why not try some Sri Lanken cuisine at Ayubowan Restaurant on High Street West.
