This beautiful historic house from 1876 is a true Manchester gem - close to the centre, it’s a quiet oasis set beside a babbling forest brook. Free parking - and just 15 minutes by bus or train from the Northern Quarter, Piccadilly and all that Manchester has to offer, you’re only five minutes walk from four traditional pubs, a huge supermarket, and more. Stay connected with fibre-optic broadband and Apple TV & Netflix - then get comfortable with the spacious bath and brand-new premium mattress.

The space
My house is a labor of love - I fell head over heels when I saw it for the first time. It’s been wonderful making this a tranquil space to rest and recharge - I hope you will love it as much as I do when you visit Manchester.

Much more spacious than small flats in the center - my house gives you old-time English charm with modern amenities. Spread over three floors, you’ll have a winding staircase, forest views, and best of all - peace and quiet.

As a photographer and big travel addict, my house has a bit of an eclectic vibe. I've scattered an assortment of my favorite pictures and trip mementos around the house.

I know how important caffeine and good coffee is - so you're welcome to use my Nespresso machine and free capsules during your stay is. :)

Transportation: You can take the train, hop on multiple buses to get into town, or take a 10 minute Uber ride. The Etihad Stadium is an easy Uber trip for Manchester City games and concerts, as are the buzzing suburbs of Chorlton and Didsbury. Bringing your car? There's loads of free parking right out the front door.

You’ll enjoy a clean and cosy house with super-fast broadband, Netflix & Apple TV, as well as range of DVDs. Make yourself comfortable with free coffee, tea, and snacks - my house is your house during your stay!

Guest access
You'll have the full run of the house - set over three floors including a brick cellar. (Alas, that's still a work in progress - it'll be a movie room in the future.) There's also a small flagstoned front and back yard - where you'll hear the birds and stream.

Other things to note
My house has a wood-fired stove - but alas it is not currently operational, as the chimney needs repairs.

Oh, and there's lots of free street parking right in front of the house.

I think that’s all there is to it - but please just give me a shout if I can answer any questions or make your stay better in any way. :)

I love it here... Far Lane is a historic conservation district set beside a forest park. Our row of charming houses from the late 1800's seem like another world - more like a traditional British village than smack in the middle of modern Manchester. With authentic local pubs like the Vale Cottage and the Waggon & Horses, you're not far from a proper pint - yet it's just an easy ride into town for a posh brunch or meal.

Hi - I'm an American who's been living in Europe for going on 15 years, easy-going and polite. I love Airbnb both because it's a great deal, but even more because it's a much more genuine experience than staying in a bland and boring hotel :) Look forward to meeting you!
