Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a lovely, safe neighbourhood, close to shops, pubs and restaurants. There is very easy access into Central Manchester but also into the Peak District, Cheshire countryside and further afield to Wales and the Lake District. You can drive to Wales in an hour and a half to visit stunning castles, villages, beaches and a whole different country! The Lake District is famous for connections to the Romantic poets such as Wordsworth and has beautiful scenery and villages. Liverpool is 50 minutes drive and is a wonderful vibrant city, the birthplace of the Beatles. It has great museums and galleries. You can also easily get to York, originally a Viking city, with wonderful medieval walls and Minster. London is a very easy two hours 2 by train, close enough to visit in a day, or better still you could then stay overnight easily to see more. Edinburgh is 3 hours by train, the capital of Scotland and a wonderful city in its own right. Manchester is a lovely cosmopolitan city, with theatres, art galleries, restaurants and excellent shopping. It is a very pleasant and very safe city with many music and art venues. There are also a number is smaller districts close to our home,such as Didsbury, with great shopping and restaurants, that are also well worth popping into and visiting . Didsbury has a number of excellent pubs if you would like to sit and sample British ale or have a traditional pub lunch.
We are an easy 15 minutes from Manchester Airport by car/taxi. If you have an interest in history or in visiting stately homes and history, there are a large number of interesting National Trust properties very close by.
