  The Detail...

Nestled in the delightful, fashionable and vibrant Manchester suburb of Didsbury, sits this charming and utterly unique holiday home offering both style and comfort. York stone entrance hall and rugged, pretty wooden floor combine ensuring this beautiful cottage has a rustic and stylish quality. Designed by the owner, an architect, this boutique self-catering cottage, has many touches of brilliance, from artistic flourishes to great storage spaces and fantastic, chic furniture. In winter thermostatically controlled underfloor heating keeps a constant temperature for you to cosy up on the couch with a good book. Come summer, sit out front in the sunshine with your morning coffee before heading out to explore the city.

Every inch of this astounding cottage has been thought through. The kitchen is kitted out wonderfully and features a gorgeous giant 18th Century wooden workbench as a dining table, as well as some stunning pre-1914 French encaustic cement tiles on the floor. The open plan living space, which includes the stylish kitchen, is long and filled with natural light thanks to bright white walls, high vaulted ceiling and big skylight windows.

Climb the bespoke metal spiral staircase, itself is a work of art set amidst exposed brick walls and York stone flooring, to the next level with a wonderful bedroom. This pop art inspired master bedroom is luxurious with a king size bed, relyon mattress, its own TV with DVD player and large window letting in plenty of light. The second bedroom is directly below and a nice twin, with charming Peter Pan wallpaper that children will adore. Theres also a delightful bathroom, with a big deep Philippe Starck bathtub, the perfect place for deep relaxation and reflection at the end of the day.

This inspiring cottage has been hand designed from start to finish, with so many wonderful touches and additions. Youll be forgiven for not wanting to leave. However, if you decide to venture out you have plenty to see and do in both Didsbury and the rest of Manchester. If you hop on the tram youre only 15 minutes from the centre of the city, and thanks to the extensive road networks nearby, youre also not too far from the Lake District, North Wales, the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and the lovely city of Liverpool. Spend your days wandering the streets of Manchester, however, and youre presented with cracking restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as plenty of other things to see and do. Sports fans can visit the National Football Museum, or go and watch City, United or the Lancashire County Cricket team. The city centre, Trafford Centre and Salford Quays also offer cracking shopping opportunities.
