When most people visit England, London is on the top of their must-see list. While there are many great things to see and do in London, it’s also worth heading three hours north to explore what cities like Manchester have to offer.
Your trip is even more enjoyable with a rental vehicle. Hire a car from Manchester Airport and begin your journey north, and stay at one of these B&Bs when you arrive.
Set in the suburbs, this Edwardian style guesthouse is only a couple of miles from the Old Trafford Stadium and just a little bit further you’ll find the National Football Museum (a must-see for devout football fans!). Being close to such attractions is convenient, but equally important are things such as free on-site parking, wifi and a buffet breakfast. You’ll get all these things plus more when staying at Abbey Lodge.

The Villas Residence
Step back in time at this Victorian villa in Rochdale in Greater Manchester. It’s only a short drive from major motorways and railway routes.

Cosy is the word to describe your stay at this redbrick 18th century farmhouse.
