The interior is very simple, with white paintwork throughout, stripped or painted floors. I am an artist, I work here, and the house kinda reflects around that fact. People tell me that my home is artistic and comfortable. Guests seem to like the artworks and blobs of dried paint as adds to the "artsy" atmosphere of the place. There is a strong feeling of space, light, and calm in the house: just imagine an artist's garret/studio (spread over 3 floors) with a sizable pinch of zen!
I enjoy having fun with the decor: like painting murals on walls, or removing doors to be replaced by drapery gauzy material, giving a more open-plan feel. Hanging from one of the guest rooms ceiling are delicate balls of white tissue paper 'magically' suspended mid-air on invisible gossamer threads creating a playful fairy grotto effect, just for the hell of it. It's theatrical and fun.
I have this sweet, calm and atmospheric TWIN ATTIC ROOM with shared shower/bathroom facilities. I supply towels and shower necessities as well as a radio, hair dryer, a kettle, tea, coffee and milk ( just let me know if you need soya milk). Wi-Fi throughout, and a television is available on request.
You have full use of the large kitchen at all times. You would, however be required to wash up after yourself. You also have the use of any communal space of course.
The house is situated right in the heart of 'old' Chorlton, less than a minute's walk from the famous 'Beech Road' area with its galleries, bars/restaurants, cafés and alternative shops. Chorlton, once jokingly called 'the Left Bank' of Manchester, is simply brimming over with Musicians, Artists, Actors, Media People, etc. which all makes for a very vibrant, bohemian atmosphere.
I'm blessed with having Chorlton Ees less than 3 minutes walk from the door. Alternatively called 'The Meadows' it is a vast and varied cycling and dog-walking wild-life habitat. It includes the River Mersey, and is part of the Trans-Pennine Way. It holds TWO Water Parks within easy walking distance! The Ees is just perfect for an early morning walk.
My house is approximately 4 miles from the centre of Manchester. The buses are frequent, and the newly arrived tram service only takes 12 minutes into the City. It's also well situated for the motorway (under 3 miles away) and Manchester Airport (15 to 20 minutes drive).
I provide a variety of cereals for breakfast, which you'll find in the kitchen, just help yourself. If you require soya, just let me know.
I lead a blissfully quiet existence. I need a lot of mental space and time for my work, but having a bit of life and bustle around the place from time to time is great too.I endeavor to keep a 'low profile' so that guests may feel at ease and comfortable. I love Manchester, and am keen to help you enjoy your visit here so that YOU WILL LOVE IT TOO!
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you so much Gwyn, I will never forget these days and I will come back, for sure.

Gwyn welcomed us warmly, waving to us in the middle of the street, and even with a welcome board. She offers much more than we would have expected. A beautiful house, spacious ensuite room with the best products you can imagine and with lots of little extra attentions that make your stay an absolute wonderful experience. Gwyn is a very sweet, interesting and lovable person. I would warmly recommend everyone goong to Manchester to stay with here.
I stayed with my girlfriend for 3 nights in the room. It was a very pleasant stay.. The house is really really nice, tidy, clean and artistic. Gwyn was really helpful and a nice person to meet.. Really pleasant to meet her. We would definitely stay at the same place in case we are going to Manchester again...))))
I had a wonderful weekend at Gwyn's house which was located in a beautiful area of Manchester. Everything from metro to shops and busses is within reach and a short walk takes you everywhere.
The room I stayed in was clean and gorgeous, I had everything I needed. Gwyn itself is a really nice and chatty woman, I enjoyed talking to her.
I can definitely recommend her house/ room for any kind of trip, the location is great, the facilities are there and the price is perfect, so keep it up Gwyn and I hope to see you soon!
