About this listing
Hello, thanks for reading this.
Our house is situated in Didsbury, one of Manchester's liveliest areas with lots of busy bars restaurants and cafes within a short walk. The house is very close to excellent 24 hour, high frequency bus services to the city centre, universities and hospitals. Didsbury has now been linked up to the city's tram system. We are 3 minutes walk from the West Didsbury tram stop, which connects with the city centre via Chorlton. Although close to local amenities, the street is quiet and does not suffer from traffic noise.
We have three rooms that are listed on Airbnb. Two are large en-suite rooms and there is a smaller room, which is not en-suite but which has an attractive adjacent bathroom. The other rooms are listed under "Large Room good access city centre" and "Comfortable en-suite room, Didsbury".
The room you are viewing is our smallest room. It is equipped with a small wardrobe and has a UK standard sized double bed and a small table. The bathroom that goes with this room is large and modern and has a bath with a shower over. We do not offer weekly rates on this room as we like to give longer stay guests the additional comfort of the larger en-suite rooms. If you are looking for a stay of one week or more please submit an enquiry for one of the larger rooms and we will offer a favourable weekly (website hidden) is available in the lounge and wireless broadband is also available. A buffet style breakfast is included consisting of home made breads, cereals, fruit and yoghurt but we are happy to provide a traditional cooked breakfast (£4.00 supplement), packed lunches and evening meals by prior arrangment.
You can see from our reviews that many of our guests have enjoyed our evening meals. We like to cook and we have a wide choice of meals that we can offer. All our meals are prepared from good quality fresh ingredients and all our sauces are home made. Ask us what is available if you are interested. Meals can be taken at the breakfast bar or in the dining room.
The house is well located for Manchester Airport, which can be reached by train or bus, and for the universities. Parking is on-street but safe and there is plenty of space.
We need to be advised in advance if guests wish to bring friends into the house.
Smoking is permitted in the garden.
Our kitchen is not available for guests to cook their own food as we prepare food every evening for guests and for ourselves.
I received a warm welcome and was very comfortable. Spotless bed and bathroom. Lovely relaxed place to stay. Excellent base in Manchester.
I was made to feel very welcome by Bob & Christine in their beautiful and comfortable home. The property description was absolutely spot on. What I found most surprising was how quiet and peaceful the area is - just what I needed after a very busy weekend! And it is in the perfect situation of just being off the main road and excellent if you are using public transport. Would definitley recommend this property and will stay there again.
I was made to feel very welcome and my stay was very comfortable. I was offered a cup of tea on arrival which was a lovely touch and although I didn't take Bob up on the offer, it was very nice to be offered a brew after a 5/6-hour drive. Bob knows his city and was able to advise me on the best way into Manchester. And I had an awesome cooked breakfast ready for me in the morning before heading out. I'd highly recommend Bob and Christine and look forward to another opportunity to stay in the future.
Helo, Bob and Christine were really good hostes. Helpfull and friendly, They really made me felt like home. It was a great experience been with them. King regards. Rodrigo
Bob and Christine are the dudes of Didsbury. Such a nice house, run by nice people. They are a wealth of info about the Manc area and gave me a top tip for getting to football without going into the city centre (which isn't far anyway) Breakfast was a lovely bonus with fine breads and proper coffee. Hooray! Stay here if you want a comfy bed, a chilled household and a chat about music, gigs, festivals and food. Brilliant. Thanks to both.
Bob and Christine were friendly and welcoming and my stay was very enjoyable. House was spotless, bed comfortable and great breakfast. I also had some evening meals with them which were delicious. Direct bus into Manchester Piccadilly goes from practically outside their door! Highly recommend.
Bob e Christine sono stati molto gentili e disponibili, la casa accogliente con bagno privato molto pulito. sono rimasto poco meno di una settimana per lavoro e spero di avere l'occasione di tornare, la fermata del bus dista 2 minuti a piedi.

About the Host, Bob And Christine
I retired early (4 years ago) from a professional role in order to spend more time with my camera. The camera bit didn't really work out as I spend most of my time keeping house and looking after our wonderful guests. Christine works in admin. We live in a largish Edwardian semi. We are a very sociable couple and we enjoy the social life in our community. When she is not out at work Christine is the nice one who makes cakes, bakes bread and makes our guests feel relaxed and welcome. I do most of the meeting and greeting, preparing our guest rooms, fixing breakfasts, researching local information and all the other little bits and pieces that help to make your stay memorable and enjoyable.
We both love cooking (and eating) and we enjoy preparing food for, and dining with, our guests. We try to remove processed foods from our diet as much as possible and we follow the same ethos when catering for our guests. Most of the foodstuffs we use for breakfast are home made. The meals that we provide in the evening are all cooked from fresh ingredients.
Guests seem to enjoy our house. Our house is clean but It is certainly not the tidiest house you will have seen. There are usually a few bits of clutter lying around. Books, newspapers and grandchildren's art work are often sprinkled around the place. I always tell Christine that a bit of clutter adds atmosphere to a home. She doesn't always agree.
