The iconic Winter Hill is the highest point in the West Pennines and offers fantastic views towards Greater Manchester, Blackpool Tower, the Lake District and even the Isle of Man! Good news if you’re into the supernatural, as there have even been alleged UFO sightings here!

  1. Wards Reservoir

Known locally as the Blue Lagoon, the reservoir was built to supply water to the local mills in the early 19th century. It makes a lovely day out for all the family and in the summer the Instagram -worthy waterfall is framed by pink wildflowers.

  1. The Parish Church of St Peter

The church was built in 1849 in a neo-gothical style using stone from a nearby ancient farm. Belmont has a strong sense of community and St Peters Church holds lots of events for all ages to enjoy and come together. It’s by Wards Reservoir and provides a lovely day out if you want to appreciate its impressive architecture.

  1. Fishing

Avid anglers rejoice! There are a number of fisheries, lakes and reservoirs in the surrounding area where you can expect to find brown and rainbow trout, silver fish, perch and salmon. Just imagine cooking up freshly caught fish for dinner in your brand new kitchen!


  1. Bolton Sailing Club

Calling all Salty Seadogs! Bolton Sailing Club is over 60 years old and one of the longest established sailing clubs in the North West. Situated alongside a picturesque 40-hectare reservoir in the shadow of Winter Hill, it’s ideal for experienced sailors and beginners too. The reservoir is also home to a range of different wildfowl – great news if you’re a bird lover.

Moving home is the chance for a fresh start, so why not take up a new hobby like sailing!
