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 "Dbl Room good access to city centre" and "Comfortable en-suite room, Didsbury".
The room you are viewing is our largest room, with generous wardrobe space and has a king-sized bed. There is also plenty of room for a cot. The large en-suite bathroom is equipped with a shower and has recently been decorated. Both the bedroom and the bathroom have large windows looking out to the front of the house. These are clearly seen in the photo of the house (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.
Christine was out when we arrived but Bob was very welcoming upon our arrival and very helpful at showing us areas to explore on the map. The house is beautiful and the room was spacious and comfortable. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Manchester!
I stayed just one night but I really enjoyed my stay, Bob and Christine made me feel very welcome and were great hosts! The house and the area are beautiful, there is also an easy access to the tram to Manchester.
I would highly recommend them.
Bob and Christine made me feel very welcome. The room is spacious and the bed is very comfortable which I really appreciated. The en-suite bathroom has a marvellous shower. The house is in a quiet road with no through traffic. Parking is on the street and it was easy to find a space. I would certainly recommend this bnb.
We had a very pleasant stay at Bob and Christine's place. It's a nice and quiet area with some great restaurants. The bus stops around the corner and takes you into the center within half an hour. The room and bathroom were beautiful and clean. Every morning there was a healthy and fresh breakfast, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal and some toast. It felt like a luxurious hotel room with the warmth of a family home. Thank you very much!

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.
