“Excellent base with”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Yew tree was clean & pleasant & had everything we needed for a weeks stay in Manchester. Neighbours were nice, secure parking was a bonus as some of the surrounding streets looked quite busy.
Beds and bedding were of very good quality and much appreciated. Everything you could need in the kitchen and living room and amazing shower.
Cooker was really good (made a lovely roast dinner)
Took 15 minutes to get into Manchester by car every day which was great. All in all a fantastic place to stay, we will be back. Thanks Alastair.

“Modern facilities, nicely furnished, very handy and loved secure car park”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We came from New Zealand with our daughter and granddaughter to visit relatives and do some shopping and picked this place because it was handy to family and shops. We had a rental car and loved the secure car park only accessed by code. The house was nicely furnished, very clean with lovely shower with endless hot water,( so it seemed anyway). The kitchen had modern equipment and everything you could possibly need. Initially, the day before check in I had trouble reading the email giving us all the codes for car park and house keys, but the owner Alastair was extremely helpful once he realised my difficulty and fixed it instantly and check in was then a breeze. The Welcome package was yummy. Thank you.

Fantastic house, exactly as in the pictures. Clean, quiet, secure, private. We had a rental car so the secure parking was handy. Had a few issues with the shower, but Alastair's son promptly fixed it and issues after that. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Manchester.

Perfect for what we needed as daughter racing at Manchester velodrome all week. Communication with the owner Alistair was always responded to quickly.
Everything we needed was available.
Thanks!

“Very nice place”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The home is very suitable for four people. It is comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with all the needed items for us to make our own dinners when we wanted. We are walkers, so the 10 minute walk to the Oxford Road area was no problem for us, and we could leave the car in the nice, secure parking lot. The neighbors were friendly also, something we weren't expecting.

“Great for a short stay in Manchester”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were at the place for a short week with our 2-year-old son because my wife had a training near the airport. So we wanted to have the airport and the city center in reach. Both were reachable within ca. 30 min, the city center especially easy with the 111 bus every 10 minutes.

The house is equipped with modern furniture, has a dish washer, a washing machine and a dryer. The bathing rooms and especially the shower were modern and nice. There are two sleeping rooms, one with a double-bed and one with two singles. Our son was sleeping with us, so the bed was a little bit small with only about 4 feet and 7 inches (1.4m). But it worked.
The house is a little bit aside Yew Tree Road so the traffic doesn't disturb much at night if you like open windows. But if the wind comes from the east some of the planes from Manchester airport are turning over the place quite low during their start. It was ok for us, though.

If you want to go shopping you have to take the taxi or a 15min walk. There are two big supermarkets nigh that stay open long.

We loved to stay there.
