“Wonderful 3 night stay”
Reviewed January 10, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

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

“Wow. Fantastic property, great location.”
Reviewed July 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The owner obviously takes great pride in this superb rental. The decor and furnishings are stunning. The location is close to various transport links including the tram and motorway network and walking distance to a wide range of great cafes, restaurants and individual shops. Just a shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Thanks David for all the extra touches including those basics such as milk, coffee, tea bags and washing powder!

“Everything we needed”
Reviewed February 24, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The apartment was just what we needed. As it was just before Christmas it was wonderful to arrive somewhere that looked festive, with a Christmas tree and wreath on the door! David, the host was also very welcoming. The apartment was well equipped and spotless.

“Perfect spot to stay in Manchester”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at 129 Didsbury as a base during the week of our daughter's wedding. The property was easily accessible and a wonderful, inviting space. On the morning of the wedding we had the bridal party assemble at the cottage. It was a perfect backdrop for photographs. David was so helpful and accommodating. Following the wedding it also proved. Perfect spot to relax in prior to returning home after the week-end. It us within walking distance of some great cafés, restaurants, bars and shops.

“Best place to stay in Manchester”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here on a 2 month trip through the UK. It is by far the nicest place we've stayed. Perfectly situated in a great neighborhood with lots of great restaurants, we thought the cottage itself was a treat. All the rooms are spacious and David served as the perfect host. We are traveling with children ages 4-10 and this was a great place to bring kids. The tram is close by which provides access to Manchester sites. The beds are extremely comfortable, and since we have been staying in many places on this long trip, we can say with confidence that David's place is the most comfortable. We also highly recommend the restaurant a few doors down called Thyme Out, which has a wonderful breakfast. We loved staying here and would love to come back!
