The SpaceWe would love to to welcome you to our home!
We live in a great apartment in Didsbury Village, on the first floor of a building formerly known as the 'Clock Tower'. Apart from the guest bedroom (equipped with an ensuite bathroom), there is also a huge open plan living space for you to enjoy. The apartment is usually flooded with light due to the 8 large bay windows in the main room, overlooking the village. Guest AccessYour 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 to keep you toast warm in the winter. There is also an additional mattress for you to use, should you wish to stay in separate beds.
We also have wireless fibre-optic internet, free for you to use. Interaction with GuestsWe 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. The NeighborhoodWe 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. Getting AroundWe 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 NoteIf you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester, and our home!
