A beautifully calm space for couples or families with a perfect balance of contemporary and antique art. A mere tram’s hop from Manchester

Read guest comments

A step aside from the vibrant buzz of West Didsbury (restaurants, cafés, enticing independent shops), is a harbour of calm where beautiful and obscure pieces from abroad combine with original local art, stylishly and tranquilly. There's free parking and the tram stops just down the road to take you into the heart of Manchester. Pop from the airport, or walk easily to the river and parks from these transformed farm outbuildings. Spacious with high ceilings, modern with a heart of antiquity, and little ones fall in love with the Peter Pan wallpaper and games. Exposed brick work, wooden floors, antique tiles from the Ardèche prettying the kitchen floor, classical pop art wallpapers designed by artists, air sourced heating – every detail has been cleverly thought out. A spiral staircase takes you upstairs; the twin bedroom is on the ground floor. Cook in the open plan kitchen, order in, eat out – all the options of a city at your own pace. Close the French antique shutters, order delicious organic treats from the deli next door – and rejuvenate. Easy peasy.

  • Some of Manchester's top restaurants are nearby & there is an eclectic mix of bars & independent shops. Combined with lovely parks and waterways makes this the ideal location for walk, run or even canoe trip!
  • West Didsbury is a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport & only 4 miles from the city centre, we have a local tram stop so from the front door you can be there in 20 minutes via the tram. The network also gives easy access to Salford Quays & Media City.
  • Manchester is steeped in history being the birthplace of the industrial revolution & has Britain's first Urban Heritage Park. We are also very fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful country houses & have a wealth of art galleries & museums.
  • Manchester is home to two world famous football teams, the national football museum, Lancashire County Cricket, Sale Sharks Rugby Union, the aquatics centre with an olympic size pool & the Velodrome with world class cycling facilities.
  • Manchester's family attractions cover all areas: art; sport; science & industry; social & natural history; transport; war; media (CBBC tour); lego; sealife; indoor sky diving; snow skiing; jump nation; rock climbing; or see the deer at Tatton or Lyme Park.
  • An extensive road network, puts all of Manchester & the North West easily within your grasp for day trips to: Lake District, North Wales, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Liverpool, Chester, Leeds, York & Blackpool are all less than two hours away by car.

"We loved staying at 129Didsbury. The house was very nice, Didsbury was 'gezellig', and there was a lot to see in Manchester. Thank you David for your kind reception."

"A wonderful 3 night stay- this cottage is beautiful. It has been cleverly designed and furnished. Everything is to a very high standard. Yet it also feels very cosy and comfortable. On top of the quality of the accommodation is the warm welcome and friendly attention given by David, the owner. Its location is great in a quiet spot but close to the lovely restaurants and shops of West Didsbury. It all adds up to the perfect package and for us a really wonderful stay."

"My sister and I (Kiwis) stayed here for 9 nights in June on a recent trip to the UK. We had a wonderful time in Manchester much due to this amazing accommodation. David has designed and furbished a beautiful little mews cottage, perfectly equipped for self catering in every possible way. It has both modern and traditional elements, urban and rural touches in synch with its ancient origins and the most lovely atmosphere of relaxation and comfort. It is situated in a quiet, leafy area of interesting shops and restaurants. We found our host always charming, helpful, friendly and non intrusive."

"This is a lovely house, perfect for anyone who appreciates good design. It was a delight to stay in, there are loads of great places to eat locally, AND it's perfectly placed for visiting Manchester. Highly recommended."

"Just back from a 3 night stay. We'd always wanted to visit Manchester, and how lucky to choose the perfect base for getting to know such a large and varied city. It's just enough out of town to be relaxed and the cottage itself is a joy. Clever and comfortable without being pretentious. The setting in West Didsbury, makes eating in or out easy, and the tram service into Manchester is excellent. The spiral staircase might be a problem to anyone who has a problem with stairs, but the downstairs bedroom is extremely comfortable. Definitely a 'Special Place'"

"Superb design, comfortable and quiet, yet located in a vibrant urban village adjacent to all that Manchester can offer."

"Superb design, efficient facilities and comfortable and attractive interior ensure that this well located mews cottage will appeal to those looking for a base to explore Manchester. "

"We stayed 4 nights. The whole experience of 129 Didsbury is a delight; the blend of old and new,plenty of daylight from all sides whilst preserving privacy, the attention to detail in all respects. The bedroom was very comfortable, quirkily furnished and decorated. The bathroom beautifully laid out and equipped. The spiral stair well engineered and fun to use, ideal for a shortish stay; long term use might be less convenient! Location could not be better. Barton Road is just round the corner and has a wide range of ethnic eateries. The Thyme Out deli, even closer,is ideal for breakfasts."

"We stayed 4 nights in this cosy and comfortable house. We wanted to stay longer and hope to have a reason to go back to Manchester and stay at 129 Didsbury. The location is excellent, easy access to the tram system, interesting independent shops just around the corner and off road parking. 129 is beautifully designed with very high spec furnishings and fittings. It feels homely, it is easy to settle in - everything works. There is a comprehensive range of cooking equipment, and spacious working surfaces. The owner lives nearby and is extremely helpful and concerned that guests are happy. "

"There is an independent feel to West Didsbury. Burton Road contains a vast selection of cafes, delis and restaurants; only a few minutes away on foot from Nell Lane – a self-catering house, stylish, modern and bold in its difference. David uses a long tool bench as his kitchen table and despite its awkwardness, works very well because the house wants to be different! A spiral staircase takes you up to the double bed-room. The house is well insulated. There are DVDs, books and games for loan. No expanse is spared. This is a great location for a cultural holiday with plenty of museums to visit"
