“Rudy and Charlotte's home was absolutely fantastic. Would highly recommend - ourselves and our 2 children (4 and 2) had a fab time. The swap was extremely easy to organise and communication with Rudy was brilliant coming up to and during our stay. The house is beautiful and just perfectly located with easy access to the local area. Would love to go back if I was in the area and would not hesitate to recommend others to go. Thanks Rudy and Charlotte for such a lovely stay :)”
Where is it?
Long heralded as the go-to destination for anybody with a proclivity for chickpeas and hessian, Chorlton has become a byword for all things hipster and hippy. This ex-village turned middle-class arts graduate’s suburban utopia is often touted as being one of the best places to live in the UK.
Chorlton is the liberal heart of Manchester, awash with organic delis, independent bars and restaurants. To one side of the area you find charity shops and vegan supermarkets; on the other is Beech Road, often cited as "the trendiest road in Manchester" because of its abundance of boutiques and restaurants.
Much of the area is taken up by green space, with Chorlton Park leading over towards Didsbury, Longford Park heading towards Stretford and Chorlton Ees (encompassing waterways, a lake, lush meadows and a golf course) bordering Sale.
It is well-loved by couples with young families - one of the most frequent sights of the area is a new father driving a pushchair - and the festival-going professional set. Perhaps because the residents tend to be so similar, there is a very strong community feel in Chorlton. This is never as obvious as during one of the small festivals that stud the annual calendar.
