About this listing
Beautifully decorated, self contained, first floor studio which sleeps 2 in bijou luxury, with contemporary kitchenette area & stylish shower room. Compact room but well designed with all necessary amenities. Situated 5 mins walk from vibrant, friendly West Didsbury, full of restaurants and cafes. 15 mins taxi from the city & airport. 2 mins walk to "Burton Road" Metro stop. Free parking, free unlimited wifi.
The Pad has been designed (by us!) with luxury, comfort and elegant touches for the overnight guest or guests (2 max). With a palette of greys and pops of colour, the room is warm and welcoming as well as super stylish.
The bed is wonderfully comfy, the furnishings unique and bespoke, and the kitchen well equipped for an overnight stay or longer.
The images reflect the high standards of the accommodation, which also benefits from a beautiful garden area downstairs.
Lots of drawer and clothes hanging has been included, surface areas for your bits and bobs, plus there is a freeview TV and wireless internet.
And the most gorgeous rocking chair this side of heaven ;)
Tea and coffee making facilities are available, as well as a fridge and microwave, sink and cupboard space for longer stays.
No amenities are shared with other guests.
There is a caretaker on site and food / refreshments can be arranged on arrival.
Strictly no smoking / pets.
Free off road car parking available, plus free on street parking available.
Interaction with guests
We can welcome guests between 2pm and 7pm, outside these times by request.
Bags can be stored if needed before this time and if the Pad is free the night before the booking, access is possible before 2pm. Later access than 7pm is available via the on site caretaker for the building, with prior notice, up to 11pm.
West Didsbury is an amazing, indie trader filled suburb of South Manchester with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants to enjoy, plus we know most of the owners so can arrange meals etc for you if help is required. We offer 10% discounts at Thyme Out (breakfasts to die for 5min walk away) and at Taste Of Honey (stunning cheeses, meats and platters). You could come for a weekend in West Didsbury and not have to leave, it's that great but Manchester is only a short bus / tram ride away.
The Pad is literally two minutes walk from the Burton Road Manchester Metro tram stop, plus on a very handy bus route. Manchester Airport is a 15min drive away, as is the city itself.
Other things to note
We can help arrange meals, taxis, etc, just ask :)
There are other full time house tenants so we expect guests to be respectful late at night and not play loud music / tv etc.
Absolutely no smoking or a cleaning fine of £75 will be imposed.
No in-room curries or red wine (past accidents have resulted in this rule!)
Please contact us before vacating the room should there be any accidental damage or breakages which require discussion.
This is a beautiful apartment and we'd love it to stay that way for future guests, we just ask that guests love it & treat it as we do :)
