Our experience of buying a home via The Dwelling Place was truely exceptional. The staff are so polite and accommodating. Thoughtful consideration of our circumstances enabled us to sell our home and move into our wonderful new property with relative ease. Thank you especially to Gina who made it happen!

I've used The Dwelling Place to both purchase and rent property. Both services are second to none.  When purchasing they kept me up to date on everything and made the whole process as stress free as possible. They offered a professional and speedy service. When it comes to lettings I have used both the tenant find service and full management. The lettings team have always let my properties within a matter of days. When using the full management service the team took care of everything for me from collecting the rent to arranging tradesmen to carry out works. I cannot recommend them enough.

I just wanted to drop you an email to say what a great job the team are doing. Laura, who is my contact, is excellent and keeps me updated and helps resolves issues. Likewise Emma is very proactive re her side of things.

I wanted to let you know, as it's easy to point things out when things aren't going well and forget to when they are. So a big pat on the back to the team and thank you for your support.

I would just like to thank you for all your time and effort in showing me the property's. I was very happy with the service you provided and would not hesitate to recommend you.

Thanks again


I have used the Dwelling Place on a few occasions for a tenant find after switching from another local agent.  I find their service second to none.  They really work with you to find the perfect tenant.  They are extremely efficient with a smooth process from beginning to end.   If managing the property became too time consuming for me I would not hesitate to appoint them on a full management basis.  Highly recommended. Kay-Victoria Apartments

Anyone looking to sell their property we would highly recommend The Dwelling Place.We had personel attention and lots of viewings. We were on with a couple of other agents first but noticed a huge difference when we changed. Agents show interest initially but then seem to forget about you and you are just another one 'on the books' 

A big thankyou to The Dwelling Place

Mr and Mrs Cartwright


The Dwelling Place has been excellent regarding the recent purchase of our new home .  We could not have asked for a better estate agent. My girlfriend and I were treated brilliantly by Gina and the girls from our first viewing of the house right through to completion. Very friendly service and always willing to help us if we had any questions. I will definitely be using The Dwelling Place again in the future and also recommending them to other people. March 2014 Mr J Hargreaves


Many thanks to The Dwelling Place in Padiham.  From the initial contact we felt listened to and received good, sound advice. Our property was appropriately marketed, described to its full potential and was placed on-line within days of the initial meeting. They were originally recommended to us by our solicitor who had dealt with them many times over the years on a professional basis.  Even though our property was in the Pendle area, after meeting with them, we were happy to let them market our home for us. With The Dwelling Place, we were kept informed on a regular basis via email, phone calls and letters. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they struck exactly the right balance of friendly professionalism. Everything went very smoothly due to their fantastic communication skills and friendly advice. We would highly recommend The Dwelling Place to all our friends and would definitely use them again if need be. Carole and Paul Carlile March 2014


"I want to just say just how amazing this company is in the estate agent world...had so many problems with my previous agents that was bit doubting that I could or would sell my property in the current market, but totally felt at ease with the great team at The Dwelling Place and sold my house on second viewing. Top marks and keep up the good work." 26th March 2013, Anita Wiseman, 3 Bed Mews, Burnley


"I just wanted to say a 'HUGE' thank you to the team - we bought a property from Dwelling Place stress free - the process was so easy and the team extremely supportive I would definitely recommend your services and will look to use Dwelling Place again." Steve and Louise Whittaker, Purchasers, June 13
The Dwelling Place,
Well, what can I say?
When I needed things done,
They were on their way,
When I needed a job done,
They were the ones,
When I was stuck for a leccy,
They sorted that too,
A plumber, a roofer and a man to fix the loo.
Nothing was too much to ask,
Even though, often, an arduous task,
Staff who actually wanted to work,
Pro-active, approachable, not easily shirked,
A company who wanted to complete a sale,
Not just sat there, on mobiles, spinning a tale.
Many, many thanks for all you have done,
When I’m selling a house, I know where to come!
Sherry Barrass, Purchaser, May 13
