A bright room in a quiet street, close to everything Manchester has to offer.

The space

You will be staying in a light airy private room with a very comfortable king-size bed, and have shared access to the bathroom, and the rest of the house.

I like to keep my home bright, cosy and relaxed - many people have commented on its welcoming atmosphere and fantastic location.

Guest access

You'll only be sharing with me (and my cat) and you may come and go as you please while you're here. In the summer, my little garden is a pleasant place to sit with a morning coffee, and the living room is cosy in the evenings.

I work from home, running a small catering business. I will provide breakfast, on a help-yourself basis, including home-made items like granola and marmalade, but since I work from home I generally need my kitchen to myself after breakfast time so it's not available to guests after that.

There is plenty of space to parking a car, or for an extra £20 I can pick you up from the airport - cheaper than a taxi and you won't have to worry about finding the address!

The house also has WiFi which you are welcome to use for no charge.

Please note that I am happy to accept bookings for just one night during the winter and on weekdays, but from March to November I don't accept one-night bookings for a Friday or a Saturday night.

Interaction with guests

I am a friendly person who enjoys entertaining and introducing people to Manchester. I have a busy social life but also like to curl up at home with a book, a film or my knitting. I love animals and have a very affectionate cat called Rhea.

I speak some French, and I also have lots of experience of explaining British ways to confused overseas visitors, so just ask me if you need directions or advice! I look forward to meeting you.

Other things to note

I am an experienced host, and have had guests stay here from all over the world, some wanting a quiet base for a work visit, some just wanting to relax and explore Manchester - get in touch and let me know how I can make your stay enjoyable!

I hope you'll have a great stay at my home. I want you to be comfortable here but please remember that this is my home and treat it the way you would want me to treat yours! I can provide lots of information about Manchester and the local area, just ask me if you have any questions to help make your stay enjoyable.

You are welcome to help yourself to unlimited coffee/tea at any time, and breakfast items will be available in the mornings.

It is however very important that you understand that I work from home running a small catering business, which means that my kitchen is my 'office' and due to health & hygiene regulations it is not available to guests while I am working.
There is a very wide choice of places to eat in the local neighbourhood, as well as in the city centre, to suit every budget, and I am very happy to give you recommendations!

No smoking is allowed in the house - but there is a bench in the garden you can use.

I will lend you a set of keys so that you are free to come and go at any time during your stay. Please don't bring any other people back to the house though, unless you have cleared it with me first.

I will carry on my life as normal, so sometimes I'll be at home and sometimes I'll be out, but I always have my mobile phone with me, so if you have any queries, just call me!

Great location and even better host. Helen was GREAT! Super easy to contact and very fast at replying. Her home was beautiful and very clean. 5 stars all the way. If I ever come back to Manchester, this is where I'm staying

Helen's place is a must stay! Perfectly clean, outstanding breakfast, easy walk to tram station, and I loved her little cat. She helped us arrange a taxi for the airport and was extremely responsive. Wish I could have stayed more than 1 night!

Helen is a great and welcoming host; the place was exactly as advertised - clean, hospitable, and very comfy. I would definitely recommend staying here. She accommodated my request for breakfast very readily and there was ample tea and coffee available whenever I wanted it.

Helen was wonderful, she always left out breakfast food to make cereal, toast and tea in the morning, had thorough binders full of information about the house and the neighborhood and had clean towels and keys ready right away. The neighborhood is really lovely and we want to come back again! Helen left many recommendations for places to visit in the neighborhood and the city center and Chorlton is really special. Lots of great cafés, tea houses and restaurants to explore - we needed more time there!

Helen is a fantastic host - her home is beautiful, located in a great neighborhood, and she is very kind and helpful! I particularly enjoyed the homemade marmalade and the restaurant recommendations. There are some great bars and pubs within walking distance and easy public transport to the heart of the city, universities, etc. I felt very safe in the neighborhood as well, which as a young woman traveling alone is important.

My friend and I stayed at Helen's house for two nights when we went to see a Manchester United game. Helen was very welcoming and helpful, and it was really nice staying at her place. The folder she prepared for her guests is nothing short of amazing and it just shows the high level of preparation and commitment. The room was great, with plenty of space, and Helen's home-made granola and marmalade made for a great breakfast. I'd definitely recommend it to everyone. And, even if you're not a huge cat lover, don't be afraid as Rhea is really calm and sociable.

The location was brilliant (only 10 minutes from the tram station) and £3.10 return to the city centre. The room and bathroom was very clean and very warm which was important as I was coming home quite late, wet and tired. Helen had provided some breakfast options which sadly I didn't have time to enjoy. Directions were great and a beautiful friendly cat too ;-)

Friendly 40-something, living in Manchester's coolest neighbourhood! I host in my own home in Chorlton. I came to Manchester for university and liked it so much I've stayed for over twenty years. I know a fair bit about the local history of Manchester, I enjoy cooking and ente…
