Although it looks small, the house has 4 floors and is over 135 years old. The space for guests is the whole of the top floor. It's a large room with two double beds and a huge bathroom with a large walk in shower.

With 2 double beds, it's suitable for 4 normal size adults, or 2 adults and 3 small children. Not suitable for babies though.

We stopped providing breakfast as there are cafes around here, if required. See list of 25 takeaways, cafes & restaurants, all within walking distance.

The space
The top floor is self-contained and is for singles, doubles or families. It has two double beds, fitted wardrobes, drawers and cupboards. Some of this storage space is available for guests. Spacious, en- suite bathroom with a large walk-in corner shower unit.

The bedroom and bathroom are the complete top floor of the house and we are in a very quiet area.

Please note that the TV has Digital Terrestrial Freeview TV, AND it has an Amazon Fire Stick that provides Netflix, Prime Video, Catch Up TV and much more.

Where you’ll be

Whitefield, England, United Kingdom

The house is in a quiet neighbourhood, even though the main road is a few hundred metres away. This road provides a very regular bus service into the city, as well as other towns in the area. There are two tram stops each only a half a mile (0.8 km) away in each direction. There are many local shops and takeaways close by too, on the main road. The main Supermarket (Morrisons) is also 0.8 km away and a smaller one (Aldi) is about 0.4 km away. There are about 12 good restaurants within walking distance, plus 3 pubs, along with some takeaways.

Hi there, My name is John and my partner for over 27 years is Chris. We both lived in Spain for over 8 years near Valencia and in China for over 2 years in Shenzhen. We both like travelling but have now settled down in Whitefield near Bury, Greater Manchester and lived here since 2013. We live near a major bus stop for buses every 10 minutes into Manchester City Centre or Bury, our local town. It's only a 10 minute walk to either tram stop (Metrolink) where a tram will get you to Central Manchester in 20 minutes, or Bury in 10 minutes. There are at least 12 good restaurants and several pubs within walking distance. Within a one mile walk on side roads is the entrance to our beautiful countryside where you can go off in all manner of Directions and always be totally in the countryside. These walks are by rivers, canals, several parks and a disused railway track. You can walk or cycle on these, all the way into Manchester or Bury and beyond. John walks these with Chris and also cycles them on his own. There is some beautiful countryside so close to us. If you have a car, then we can direct you to beauty spots further afield. We enjoy meeting people and a speciality, as an additional part of our business is to show guests Historic Manchester on a 3 hour tour. See Experiences or ask about this additional service. Chris is a fully qualified IELTs and ESOL teacher and would love to host students who also have a requirement for English Lessons during their stay. Chris also used to speak fluent Spanish, but is a little rusty now. We hope you will give us the opportunity of meeting you and making your visit to Manchester enjoyable and memorable too. All the best, John & Chris
