We would love to to welcome you into our home!
We live in a great apartment in Didsbury Village, on the first floor of a building formerly known as the 'Clock Tower'. The apartment is made up of two bedrooms (both with ensuites), and one huge living space/kitchen - the apartment is usually flooded with light due to the 8 large bay windows in the main room, overlooking the Village.
Your bedroom is at the other end of the flat, and is completely soundproof, should you wish to retreat. Along with an newly renovated ensuite, there is a comfy double bed, and underfloor heating for you to enjoy. There is also an additional mattress for you to use, should you wish to stay with three people.
We also have wireless fibre-optic internet, free for you to use. It's very fast :)
Interaction with Guests
We are both musicians, so there is generally music of some description playing - the living room is equipped with some pretty great speakers, as well as a plethora of books, and two vintage red chesterfield couches on which to enjoy them.
When we are not playing music, chances are someone is probably cooking - we like to eat well, and you are welcome to join us for any meals that we get happening. Breakfast is included every day, and usually consists of sourdough toast, eggs, muesli with fruit and yoghurt, fresh baked goods, or porridge. Please let us know if you have any specific requests, or a preference for a particular type of milk - we will always do our best to accommodate these requests.
We are super close to a number of great galleries, bars, restaurants, and museums, including the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, and Manchester Museum.
In addition to this, we have loads of personal recommendations, so ask away and we will do our best to help you out! Soph and I are both freelance musicians, working with the BBC Phil, Hallé, and Royal Liverpool Phil amongst others, so we also have a pretty good handle on the music scene.
We are about 20 minutes out of the CBD, which means that the area is quiet, but close enough to commute easily should you want to see the sights. The 142 and 42 buses into town stop directly outside the apartment, so transport is a cinch. Didsbury Village Tram stop is just over the road, so that also opens up a gamut of travel options. We also have buses nearby that take you straight to the Trafford Centre, should you be in the mood for a monster shopping trip! Finally, there is a cab company just down the road that will take you to Manchester Airport for £12, and pick you up whenever is convenient. The trip takes about 15 mins.
Other Things to Note
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester, and our home!
1. No smoking anywhere in the flat.
2. No unexpected guests please! We love to have people over, but only those we have organised through the listing.
3. This is our home and we love it. Please treat it with the respect that you would show your own place!
4. Have a lovely time in Manchester :)
Adam and Sophie are very kind and welcoming. I really felt home and the flat is very good.
It is located in a lovely village very close to the tram station heading to Manchester downtown. A very good experience!
Adam and Sophie are a great pair. They have a super flat. Their guest room is warm and cheerful. It contains a very nice ensuite. The location is a further plus. A village at your doorstep and only a short walk to the trams - and downtown Manchester.
A very welcoming host with a great apartment in an ideal location. Quick communication and easy instructions / direction.
Thank you Adam!
We spent a delightful 3 nights in Didsbury Village. Adam and Sophie were the perfect hosts, making us feel very welcome and giving us information on the locality. The apartment was spacious and located right in the heart of the village, giving easy access to the great and varied selection of local restaurants and shops, and was only a short walk to the tram into Central Manchester, not to mention close to the motorway network and NW England. Great spot for exploring the area.
Many thanks Adam and Sophie
We were staying in in Adams and Sophies apartment over Easter. They were very friendly and caring hosts, providing us a very nice and clean room as well as breakfast every morning. They were very helpful in giving us information to get around town and recomended very nice restaurants to us. We highly recommend them as hosts!
It is a wonderful experience. The households are very kind and friendly. The house is clean and cosy. The room is big and warm with clean bathroom. Good location (15 min. Taxi from centre). Reasonable price. Really recommended.
Het apartement van Adam is ons prima bevallen. Handig is dat het tramstation op 100 meter afstand ligt. Een mooie kamer, fijne bedden, prima sanitair en een gastvrije Adam. Het ontbijt stond klaar. Als we weer naar Manchester gaan weten we waar we moeten zijn.

I used to play cello with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and run a chamber group called the Fitzroy Ensemble; for the last two years I have been freelancing in Manchester, playing with the Hallé Orchestra, Opera North, and RLPO (amongst other bits and bobs)...
Together with my girlfriend, Sophie, we live in a lovely apartment in Didsbury Village. Our place is big, filled with light, and there is generally music playing and something cooking. It's a good place.
