About Yvonne

I am an English lady who loves travelling to different parts of the world. I like to meet different people and find out about their different cultures. I am very much into architecture, the oldest the better.

These days I travel mainly with my daughter, who lives with me, along with a cat called Alfie, who is the nosiest cat around. I love going on walks to the nearby countryside and river. My son lives and works in London, but still likes to come to visit us.

Why Yvonne chose Greater Manchester

Situated in a back water of Manchester in a quiet beautiful and restful Edwardian Square which is tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but within walking distance of Manchester centre, or alternatively an easy stroll away from the frequent direct busses or trains to the centre.

In spring you have the cherry blossom trees and in winter the snow. It is an old fire station which moved many years ago. Our immaculately maintained property, offers free parking on the cobbled drive, as it is traffic warden controlled elsewhere and a very fast broadband included in the price.

Breaks here are aimed at families or couples. The setting is not suited to hen, stag or any other type of party.

The kitchen is well equipped and includes basic essentials like tea, coffee and a few food supplies. Provided is a coffee machine, which uses Nescafe Dolcé Gusto pods and available from any large supermarket.

Large bi-fold doors extend across the rear, looking out onto a terrace with a round glass table, wooden chairs, with padded seat covers, along with pot plants and a well-stocked garden.

All fresh bedding is provided, along with abundance of soft fresh towels, a couple of robes and two hair-dryers are available.

Old Trafford football club, Etihad stadium, the Chill Factore, and the Trafford Centre which is the famous shopping centre, are all close by.

The house is less than a mile away to the M602 which links to the motorway networks.

What makes this house unique

Positioned behind the square overlooking Salford University and Museum and Art Gallery.

Salford Cathedral just down the road.

Peel park to walk round is just next to the river over the road.

Fast Broadband.

Free parking, but close Close proximity to Manchester centre by either walking or jumping onto a frequent bus which can be caught within a short stroll.

Salford Crescent train station is just across the main road on the other side of the square.

Quiet garden with use of table, chairs and padded seat covers.

Cosy base to explore Manchester

  • 5 of 5

I really felt like it was my home away from home to explore Manchester. It had everything I needed in a neat comfortable place when you're thousands of miles away from home like I was.

The house is situated in a square tucked away from the main road, so there is a pleasing sense of returning to a retreat after a long day out. Everything was clean and functional although the heating could have stayed on longer at night for me, and a few exposed floorboards on the ground level squeaked excessively. Part of the charm of the place!

Overall, I would have no hesitation in going back to stay if I revisit Manchester and commend Yvonne in providing a very well-run property that is good value for money.

We felt at home!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Everything was so nice and clean. It has everything you can possibly need. I love the fact that Yvonne decorated the house for Christmas for us. She also provided a cot for our little guy with blankets and sheets. The only negative thing to say is that we wish we could have stayed longer! We hope the house is available next time we visit Manchester!

A great location to explore central Manchester

  • 5 of 5

We have just left your beautiful house. We have thoroughly enjoyed staying there. It is in a great location and the house is

absolutely gorgeous, very homely and clean and we felt very relaxed staying there. In fact we all had a touch of house envy! We would most definitely stay again and will recommend your house to our friends.

A lovely house in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

It is well positioned, near to a bus stop to catch a bus to Salford Quays and Manchester. Yvonne, the owner, was a good communicator before we arrived with any questions we had. Everything and more was provided in the house.

We had a great time on our break and to stay in this lovely house was wonderful, would definitely recommend.

Impressive

  • 4 of 5

Just like the photographs, surrounded by trees. Wouldn't think you were so close to the City. House just like the web site name "Home away from home," very clean, well appointed, lovely kitchen and patio garden, we felt very relaxed and comfortable there had a slight problem with heating timer but wouldn't prevent us booking again on our next visit to Manchester.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure in having you stay and I wished you had contacted me during your stay re the heating. Although you only gave me 4 stars, I would be interested why, as I do try and maintain the property at a 5 star rating. I don't think that you needed for anything and I am generous in what is available. I do hope that you will come and stay again next time you are in the area.

A wonderful time in Salford

  • 5 of 5

Overall, staying at Yvonne's home was a delightful experience. The property is spotlessly clean, very well prepared and most inviting. There is a detailed house manual that includes pretty much everything that one might need to know about staying at the home. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is excellent, with a good shower and plenty of hot water. The kitchen has everything that one could need, including coffee machine, dishwasher, granite counter tops, and a great island for food preparation. Additionally, off-road parking is available right in front of the house.

The location is nigh on perfect as one has easy access to Salford Quays, Manchester city center, supermarkets, and the motorway network surrounding the area, from the M602, M60, M62 and M56. The drive from Manchester Airport takes only 20 minutes. Even the Lakes District, Chester and Snowdonia National Park are easy day trips. It is also within easy reach of Manchester United Football Club at Old Trafford but, being a City fan, I wouldn't recommend going.

Try and visit the Lowry at Salford Quays if you have time. We enjoyed an excellent guided tour while we were there. The tour starts at noon (check the website before you go) and lasts for about 45 minutes. The tour and the entrance are both free of charge, although a donation to the museum is suggested.

Yvonne was a great host, being attentive to questions and generous with her time.

The house is a little tricky to get to if arriving by car from the airport as it involves a little bit of navigation. However, the Garmin proved most accurate and, having navigated the route once, it was easy to follow subsequently. If you don't have GPS, Yvonne will provide detailed instructions for driving to the property.

The only downside to the entire experience is that we couldn't stay longer. Without a doubt, any return to the Manchester area will involve a stay at Yvonne's home. Being a Manchester lad who lived in the area for 50 years, I can't say better than that!

Map

Car: not necessary

Address is:- 17 Fire Station Square, Manchester, M5 4NZ

DRIVING DIRECTIONS:-The square is tucked away off Christchurch Avenue. There are three ways of approaching:-

1) Coming from Manchester along the A6 (The Crescent) pass the entrance of Salford university on the right and take the next left across a bus lane - University Road West. Then left again - Christchurch Ave - follow the road round into the square at the end.

2) Coming from the opposite direction along the A6 (Broad Street) - MacDonalds in on your right and Salford Crescent Train Station on you left, turn left immediately behind the station, - University Road - this road drops down to a roundabout. Take first exit and double back on yourself under the road. Turn first right onto Christchurch Ave and Fire Station Sq is at the end.

3) You could approach the traffic lights at the end of Albion Way which meets the A6, with MacDonalds on your left corner. Bear right and go sort of straight across and take the road immediately behind Salford Crescent Train Station, down to a roundabout. Take first exit and double back on yourself under the road. Turn first right onto Christchurch Ave and Fire Station Sq is at the end.

WALKING from train station or bus stop:-

From Piccadilly Train Station there is a direct train to Salford Crescent at regular times and takes 9 mins. It is a short stroll to my place.

Walk out of the station and turn left, walk down the road to the front of Salford University and Salford Museum and Art Gallery. Cross the road using the crossing and walk directly across Crescent square, which has a fountain (might not be working) and in the corner there is a large arch which is the pedestrian entrance into Fire Station Sq.

There are regular buses that stop outside the university (Crescent Square) so follow the instructions above.
