Would highly recommend a stay in this lovely house, very comfortable, everything you needed was provided. Easy parking, free WiFi, house manual explaining everything and advice on what to see.

Explored Peel park which is being renovated with children's play area, Northern Quarter, city centre, Science Museum, Imperial War Museum, The Lowry and outside Media City is the Blue Peter garden and shops, cafes and restaurants. Thank you.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A very good couple of days of Christmas shopping with this little gem as our base. Quietly located off the beaten track and with all home comforts you could need. Ideally located for good public transport links (train or bus).

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is so nicely decorated, clean and luxury. The location is excellent. I suggest getting to know the history of Salford - it is very interesting!

I also suggest hiking on Peak District. Many beautiful paths can be reached by car or train.

I can warmly recommend this house!

Fantastic property.Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here. Great quiet square with parking. The house is wonderful well epuipped and well renovated. The garden is lovely. Yvonne easy to contact and helpful. The property is close to public transport especially the train and buses.

The only negative for us was that we found the bed too firm although some people might like a firm mattress.

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.

Owner's Response: Hi Chenyi, Glad you had a good overall stay. I will ask the joiner to check the floorboards. There is heating instructions in the manual, which you could operate yourself, maybe you could not find them.

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 Salford

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.


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.
