The SpaceDownstairs, conveniently located just off the living room, this room has its original tiled Victorian fireplace and solid hardwood floor - a lovely spacious room with a comfy small double bed and sitting area with a small sofa. Comfy duck and goose down duvet, pillows, cotton linen - and towels - are provided, along with a TV, chest of drawers and ample storage space for your luggage.
With this room, a simple breakfast: juice; cereal, bread and jam, is included in the price. If you'd prefer my cooked breakfast (the basics as above plus pastries, fruit, eggs, sausage, etc and toast, tea or coffee) the cost is £2.50 extra per person. Also, if you're on a tight budget or here for work and don't feel like going out for food in the evening I can also provide simple, wholesome supper: stew or hearty soup made from fresh, seasonal ingredients and bread or rolls for £4.50 per person. I provide mineral water, kettle, milk, teabags and coffee, along with an essentials to save you bringing basics with you such as shampoo or shower gel. Guest AccessWe have a cosy living room with what our visitors have described as a Heavenly sofa, and a little dining table; a fully-equipped kitchen and a lovely sun-trap of a patio garden. We also have a great hybrid bike (including lock and lights) for hire on a daily or weekly basis - just ask for details. Interaction with GuestsEvery visitor is different: some want peace and quiet; and others want to be more sociable and have a chat. Whatever your preference, I'm on hand before you arrive and once you get here to provide information, advice on local restaurants, transport or anything else you need to know. The NeighborhoodWe're a short walk from the centre of Chorlton village. It's a special place: a village within a city - a friendly, lively, still-a-little-earthy community of determined independence and individuality. Tiny bars, pubs and tea-shops offering delicious homemade meals and cakes, locally-brewed ales and beers; and award-winning fishmongers, deli's, butchers and bakeries abound here. I moved here from London four years ago and just love it. I really enjoy welcoming visitors to our lovely, friendly city and am happy to provide advice on the best places to visit, eat and relax in the city centre as well as the many lovely local spots. Getting AroundWe are a one-minute walk to the bus stop for routes into the city centre and universities (about 15 mins off-peak, a bit longer during busy periods) as well as Salford, etc. We're a five-minute walk to the Metro station (tram) for routes into the city (about 8mins to Deansgate, 12mins to the centre) west to Didsbury, or south to Altrincham, and connections for Salford Quays, north Manchester, etc. Few local people drive into town as public transport is so cheap and convenient and also avoids parking charges - however, there is easy on-street parking in our cul-de-sac; and it's about a 10- to 15-minute drive to town, depending on traffic/the time of day. Other Things to NoteGina - a small, intelligent, friendly and very well-behaved terrier, and sometimes Gus - her jolly and sweet-natured little brother - are part of our home. They are not noisy, dirty or pesky and have even won over some of the most determined animal-haters. However we are quite strict, they won’t be in your bedroom!
