TWO AND THREE BED HOMES IN THE HEART OF SALFORD, ON MANCHESTER’S DOORSTEP
Welcome to Poets, an attractive collection of two and three bedroom homes in Swinton, a popular residential area of Salford, located close to Manchester city centre. The town is renowned for its strong sense of community, making it the ideal location for your new home.
The spacious, contemporary homes have been stylishly designed with integrated appliances in the kitchen, Porcelanosa tiling in the bathrooms plus off-street parking for two cars and turfed garden areas.
The distinctive name of the development was selected due to the surrounding streets being named after famous wordsmiths. These include Shakespeare Road, Wordsworth Road and Tennyson Road, so the name was selected to represent the heritage of the local area.
Families will appreciate the several well-regarded schools nearby, including St Marks RC Primary and The Deans, both of which have been graded “Outstanding” in recent Ofsted reports. For those who like to get active, the stunning Moorside Park backs on to the development and is home to the local football and cricket clubs.

Our Poets development benefits from an enviable location, with a wealth of public transport options and access to several nearby motorway networks, ideal for those who commute across the North West on a daily basis.
Poets is ideally situated for those who work in Salford Quays and Media CityUK or Manchester city centre. Moorside and Swinton train stations are both a short walk away and frequent bus routes are available into the centre of Manchester and across Salford. For those travelling further afield, junctions for both the M60 and M61 motorways are just minutes away plus the nearby the East Lancashire Road provides a direct route to Warrington and Liverpool.
Residents at Poets will be able to take advantage of some fantastic retail opportunities nearby, with the Trafford Centre, one of the UK's largest shopping centres just over three miles away. There are also brilliant shopping experiences to be had at the The Lowry Shopping Outlet in nearby Salford Quays, plus the range of stylish stores at The Arndale and other popular high street brands that line the streets in Manchester city centre. For those wanting to shop closer to home, there are also a wide range of retail outlets at Swinton Square, just a ten minute walk from Poets.
Located just three and a half miles from Poets, The Trafford Centre is a retail mecca with a staggering 280 stores of all descriptions. The second biggest shopping centre in the country, the complex also contains Europe’s biggest food court with 31 restaurants, cafes and bars plus a cinema, bowling alley, miniature golf, Lazer Quest Arena and Sea Life Centre. There really is something to do for all the family!
One of the highlights of the city of Salford, Media CityUK is fast becoming the central hub of media and television for the UK. Home to the headquarters of the BBC, ITV and hundreds of smaller digital and media companies, MediaCityUK is a hive of activity. Filled with many dining and leisure facilities, you can also visit the famous Lowry Theatre and Lowry Shopping Outlet with 80+ stores offering designer labels at discount prices. Poets is situated just three miles away, ideal for those commuting to MediaCityUK for work.
There are two train stations within a mile of our Poets development. Moorside Station is situated under half a mile from Poets on Moorside Road and operates hourly services during the day to Manchester city centre, Wigan and Kirkby. Also within a 10 minute walk from Poets is Swinton Station, providing two trains an hour to Manchester and Wigan, plus an hourly service to Southport.
The development is close to the town centre of Swinton, which has a lot to offer. The popular Swinton Square shopping centre contains a wide range of popular retail outlets, with The Gateway- a new state-of-the-art community hub is home to the town's health and children's services. The town boasts three large supermarkets and our new development is within walking distance of the local leisure centre, which contains a swimming pool and an 86 station gym, set over two floors. In addition, Poets backs directly onto Moorside Park (pictured), one of several beautiful green spaces in and around Swinton, which is extremely popular with the locals- especially during the summer months.
Residents at Poets are just a 15 minute train ride from the bright lights of the centre of Manchester, one of the most exciting and trendiest cities in the country. Filled to the brim with a vast array of retail and leisure facilities, fantastic culture, museums and architecture throughout and boasting a thriving nightlife, the city really does have something to cater for everyone. We highly recommend visiting the famous Christmas markets during the winter months, when the city centre is taken over by hundreds of stalls offering yuletide food, drink, crafts and much more.
Manchester has its own MetroLink tram service and has three train stations which provide routes all over the country. This includes a direct route to Manchester Airport, ideal when you fancy jetting off for break in the sun!
