Knutsford named one of the UK’s Best Places to Live 2024

The Gascoigne Halman team were delighted to see Knutsford recognised in The Sunday Times’ ‘Best Places to Live’ 2024.  

We work regularly with the national press sharing our property expertise and local insights and were thrilled to see our championing of Knutsford recognised by this esteemed annual publication. 

So why did The Sunday Times rank this Cheshire town so highly this year?  Because Knutsford is a thriving market town with access to all areas whether that be on foot, by bike or car. The greenery and culture of Knutsford, presents lots of charm and breathtaking landscapes; Tatton Park is a firm favourite for many residents boasting a 1,000-acre estate which is open all year round.

The town is renowned for its charming pubs, cafes, and restaurants, many of which are dog-friendly and don't mind muddy shoes! Situated just a short half-hour drive from the stunning Peak District and surrounded by beautiful countryside, it's easy to find a breath of fresh air here.

Knutsford also offers a variety of shops, supermarkets, a leisure centre, cinema, good schools, a health centre and the bustling Makers Market. With a calendar packed with annual town events and traditions, Knutsford’s strong sense of community makes it a fantastic place to live.

“Knutsford is one of our most popular locations across Cheshire and the amenities it offers appeal to buyers of all ages", commented Dev Coiley, Sales Negotiator at our Knutsford office. “By day this is a town ideal for those who are outdoorsy; muddy boots, dogs and kids are welcome pretty much everywhere.  It’s a great place to start or end a long walk or outdoor pursuit and enjoy a well-earned treat somewhere warm and welcoming. By night, Knutsford is equally popular, brimming with sophisticated restaurant and bar choices alongside the classy Curzon cinema experience.  

“Our branch in the town centre has waiting lists for people looking to move here and enjoy the very best of town and country living.”
