The space
My sweet little home 'Felicity' is a traditional 1920s house and has a very special history. With its original solid wood floors and stained glass bay windows it's sunny, warm and full of the charm of its era while being contemporary and very cosy.

This is my medium guest-room: deliciously sunny and directly overlooking the lovely patio garden. Drift away to sleep in a wonderfully comfortable small double bed with dreamy duck down bedding and soft yarn sheets and covers. There's plus plenty of storage space for your clothes and luggage, a kettle and teas, coffee and drinking chocolate. You'll find a jug of fresh water and complimentary juice waiting for you on arrival.


As you may have read on my profile and reviews, cooking is both my great passion and also a core part of what I offer my guests to order: healthy, wholesome and filling, home-made breakfasts and brunches; lunches to go; and suppers. I come from a cooking, food-loving family, and I started cooking and baking when I was eight years old. I cook pretty much everything from scratch, including my bread, stock, chutneys and preserves. I use local, seasonal ingredients as much as possible, and make full use of our wonderful local organic co-op, butchers and fishmongers. Full details below:

BREAKFASTS
Since I began hosting full-time two-and-a-half years ago I've had the pleasure of planning and cooking all manner of breakfasts to match the appetites, diets, and lifestyles of hundreds of guests from around the world. Based on what I've learned, and feedback from my lovely guests about the brekkie menus they've loved most; how best they've enjoyed eating them; and their differing needs while they're staying in our city, I'm delighted to introduce my new range of breakfasts to order from December 2016. To help make things easy, each option now has a name (inspired by the people and places we love most, or know personally from working or living there) and there are two categories to choose from, depending on whether you prefer to have your brekkie delivered to your room to eat in bed at your leisure for a lazy start to your weekend (or, by total contrast, while you get ready for a busy day's work) - or at the other end of the spectrum: you'd prefer to come downstairs and start your day at our kitchen table, looking out onto our little garden, chatting with us and (or!) our friendly doggie, and seeing and smelling your food being prepared.

SUPPERS:

If you would like to book breakfasts, packed lunches or suppers on any of the days of your stay, please let me know when you book, or at least two days before you check in, along with any special dietary requirements or preferences (for example, vegetarian or vegan, Halal, a food allergy - or simply a hatred of something in particular, like tomatoes or mushrooms)

I absolutely love having guests. My mission is to provide the happiest, most welcoming and comfortable bnb experience in Manchester. Since I started hosting five years ago I've welcomed over 1000 guests from 64 countries into our home - the most enriching, illuminating and exciting adventure! I do everything I can to ensure that every guest has the same warm, happy and restful stay here. But I couldn't do it all without the wonderful support and help of my wife Jules - and also my grown-up sons when they are home visiting us. I'm a friendly, happy person with a positive outlook on life and an impish sense of humour. I'm curious and love to learn. Travelling, meeting new people and learning about other cultures and traditions excite me. I've lived and worked on three continents; and my friends come from all over the world, many philosophies and walks of life. I'm a passionate and inventive cook. I love having a full house and feeding my family, friends and guests. I grew up in a place where many people don't have enough to eat, or roofs over their heads, so I am very grateful for these things.

Here are some other things that make me joyful: my sons; music; reading; the sounds of the African night; beautiful old churches; laughing; star-gazing; hearing my Dad whistling in his garden; sushi; writing; my silly dog; mountains; dancing; macadamia nuts; the sea; going to gigs and festivals; making things; arthouse cinema; playing Scrabble; passion fruit; animals small and large; stained glass windows; falling snow; riding very fast on horseback with the wind in my face; camping in the middle of nowhere; the sound of birds singing and little children laughing.

During your stay

My aim is to tailor each guest's experience in my home based on their needs and preferences - whether they're visiting the city on their own for a break and need lots of engagement and support; in town for work and want to chat over dinner in the evenings; or a guest who just wants to enjoy the peace and quiet of their own room.
