Why invest in this property

The Pack Horse is located just off Bradshawgate, right in the heart of Bolton. Once known as the Pack Horse Hotel, the development retained its beautiful period building features whilst also displaying the modernity and luxury of a high-class hotel, meaning that The Pack Horse offers its residents the ultimate boutique student living experience.

It’s easy to see why The Pack Horse proved popular with Bolton’s influx of students, offering a superb range of on-site facilities including a fully-equipped gym and a modern common room with pool tables, pinball machines and video games for tenants to relax, unwind and socialise.

About Bolton

Formerly Nelson Square, The Pack Horse development is a bespoke student residence located in a fashionable square just off Bradshawgate in the heart of Bolton, a beautiful period building that was once the prestigious Pack Horse Hotel. Now a beautifully converted student accommodation development, The Pack Horse is still perfectly situated in an enviable location ringed with busy bars, restaurants and office space.

The University of Bolton has around 14,000 students, with over 8,000 living and travelling from areas outside the North West region. Unlike the close neighbours of Liverpool and Manchester, virtually no Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) exists in the immediate area, with a housing problem lagging some way behind the ambitious ongoing development plans of the University of Bolton
