Description

The Space

MY HOUSE:
My home is in a rural area but less than 15 minutes from the M6.
I am offering the use of a light and airy, double-bedded room with adequate storage and hanging space for 2 people.
There is a modern kitchen and bathroom: walk in shower (no bath) - towels are provided.

A 'help-yourself-breakfast' is included in the price (cereals or toast-tea/coffee etc). Let me know if you have special dietary requirements. I usually ask what type of beverage, milk, cereal, bread you prefer as I don't always buy them for myself so won't necessarily have them in the cupboard/'fridge, so please state your preferences (although I often have soy milk & green tea & I always have filter coffee).

'The Den' is 5 minutes from the M58 (15 minutes from the M6, junction 26). Located in a small, quiet cul-de-sac, set in rural surroundings.

Two miles from Edge Hill University - accessible by bus.

The historic market town of Ormskirk is 3 miles away, where you can take trains to Liverpool, Manchester, Preston & the coastal resort of Southport which offers many tourist attractions including the Air Show, Woodvale Rally, Flower Show, Firework Competition, Jazz festival, Comedy Festival, golf competitions and more .

If you're driving north, I am only one hour's drive from the South Lakes (Fell Foot, Newby Bridge, Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside etc) exit on M6 - you could be walking in the beautiful Lake District within 2 hours.

Please note: I am 45m ins drive away from the centre of Manchester ( I have had a lot of enquiries from people who seem to think I live close to CENTRAL Manchester, this is NOT the case, sorry).

AIRPORTS:
Manchester is less than an hour away.
Liverpool is about 35 - 40 minutes away. All traffic dependent. I am happy to collect you from either airport, as long as I'm not working and you cover my petrol costs!

SPORTING EVENTS:
There are MANY sporting events in the area.I have only listed a few that may be of interest.
Race go-ers: if you're interested in the horse racing, both Haydock and Aintree are only 20 minutes drive Why not come for the Grand National? You could get there by train in 10 minutes (train station is 5 minutes drive away from my place) or drive there in 15 mins (traffic dependent, of course!)

Footy, rugby & cricket Fans: Everton, Liverpool, Man U, Man City, Blackburn and Wigan football grounds are all within a 30 - 40 minute drive as is the Old Trafford Cricket (website hidden) Helen's, Wigan, Widnes and Warrington Rugby grounds are all close by too!

Golfers: Royal Birkdale is only a 20 -25 minute drive away.

Dinghy sailors, the National 24 hour and National Junior 12 hour races are just up the road in Southport (I help out at both).

Guest Access

Access to driveway parking, back garden & patio, communal kitchen bathroom & lounge.
Note that there is a charge of only £10 currently for an extra guest sharing the same room.

Interaction with Guests

I am always on-hand to welcome guests & usually around in the evening to offer advice about the local area, amenities, directions etc.
I speak fairly fluent French & Spanish. My Italian is rusty, but my understanding is probably reasonable.

The Neighborhood

Close to Edge Hill University with easy access to major road networks, yet in the heart of rural West Lancashire. 3m from the historic market town of Ormskirk, 20 minutes from sunny Southport by the sea, 30 mins from Liverpool & 45 mins from Manchester.
'The Den' is 3 minutes from the M58 (less than 15 minutes form the M6), in a small, quiet cul-de-sac, in rural surroundings.

Two miles from Edge Hill University - accessible by bus.

Two local pubs (serving food) within walking distance, a great Italian less than 5 minutes drive away and an Indian restaurant close to that. Alternatively you could drive into Ormskirk for a more comprehensive selection of eateries and pubs/bars etc or central Liverpool in less than 30 mins by car or train.

Getting Around

Close to major road networks, yet in the heart of rural Lancashire, but only 3m from the historic market town of Ormskirk, 20 minutes from sunny Southport by the sea, 30 mins from Liverpool & 45 mins from Manchester. Ideally located for major road networks (m6, M57 & M58) in the north west of England, however public transport is limited, with buses only once or twice a day, but the train station (the mainline to Liverpool) is only a 5 minute taxi ride away.

Other Things to Note

Edge Hill University is 2m away.
Plenty of local routes for short walks in the countryside. There is a newly opened bike track in some local woods. The first weekend in August is 'Bickerstock' - Bickerstaffe's free, local music festival - everyone welcome!
It is close to the Leeds - Liverpool canal, near to both Southport & Formby pinewoods & beaches & only one hour away from the South Lakes. Rufford Old Hall is a National Trust property close by. Speke Hall is around 30 minutes away.
