“Great house, location and family! We really recommend to exchange home with Jeanette and her family. Their house is very beautiful and comfortable, we enjoyed its location, in a quiet area, but with easy access to many interesting places. Communication was smooth and fast.”
Jeanette's reviewsAs a host (4)
“What could we say about our home exchange with Jeanette and her family? PERFECT! The house is sooo beautiful and comfortable, Jeanette and her family are sooo nice, Urmston has all facilities and very good connections to Liverpool, Manchester... Excellent to explore this area of England and the North of Wales. While keeping in contact for this exchange, we felt like old friends of Richard, Jeanette, Oscar and Ivan. Definitely, do not hesitate to accept if you are thinking about exchanging home with this family.”
“Notre 1er échange de maison, avec Jeanette et Richard à Manchester, s'est merveilleusement bien passé. L'organisation, la teneur des discussions, la communication durant le séjour ont été faciles et de qualité. La maison de Jeanette est grande, belle avec du caractère, et bien située pour visiter (Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool) ou faire du shopping ( dans le centre ville et le Trafford Center). Nous avons retrouvé notre maison aussi propre que nous leur avons laissé. Nous avons trouvé des attentions qui nous ont fait fort plaisir. ”
“Pasamos tres semanas en Agosto 2018 en casa de Jeanette en Manchester. Ha sido una experiencia muy positiva, la casa preciosa y la ubicación también, nosotros alquilamos un coche para poder movernos mejor: Chester, Liverpool, Norte de Gales... 100% recomendable”
Where is it?
We live in Urmston which is only 4 miles from Manchester city centre - buses and the local train station are only a few minutes walk away. Urmston is a small town/village with plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and a supermarket.
There is lots to do and see in Manchester with plentiful shops, cafes and restaurants and around such as:
Old Trafford - if you like football and Manchester United you have to visit here
Manchester art galleries
Imperial War Museum North
Urmston where our house is situated is a small town with bars, shops and restaurants and supermarket, library etc and plenty of parks and walks just a minute behind the house which follow the River Mersey. Other nice nearby areas to visit include Didsbury and Altrincham all easily reached.
We also live a 20 minute walk (or short bus/car ride) from the Trafford Centre - a huge shopping mall and around there is a indoor ski centre, trampoline park, golf driving range and the biggest children's indoor play area with slides in Europe! A local swimming pool is a short walk away and there is a fantastic aquatic centre in Manchester nearby.
Other areas to visit:
Country parks such as Lyme Park and Dunham Massey www.nationaltrust.org.uk
We also live a short train ride away from Liverpool which is the home of the Beatles and Roman city Chester. The famous seaside resort of Blackpool is around an hour and a half by car or train.
Central London is two hours away on the fast train from Manchester Piccadilly
If you have a car the Lake District, North Wales villages and beaches and the Peak District are all close by.
