Offering everything from sanguine hillside lodges to gleaming metropolitan penthouses, Airbnbs across Greater Manchester cater to every staycation desire imaginable.

Here are some of our favourites:

1-bed Loft Apartment | Fallowfield

Three miles south of the city centre, this sumptuous loft apartment sits on the top floor of Spring House, a restored Victorian villa, and boasts a mezzanine living space, king-sized bed and copper bath.

Sleeps 4, £109 per night during August.

3-bed Penthouse | City Centre

Perched atop the eighteen-storey Skyline II building, this luxury penthouse sleeps six and offers breathtaking cityscape views, a 24-hour concierge service and complimentary entry to the gym, sauna, hot tub and rooftop pool.

£220 per night, no under-21s.

Victorian Boutique | City Centre

Two minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Station, this gorgeous flat features two king beds, three smart TVs, a Nespresso machine and even an original Chesterfield chair. Situated in a listed building completed in 1877, the decor draws inspiration from the Victorian era during the peak of the Industrial Revolution.

£218 per night.

Boutique Penthouse | City Centre

Featuring a spiral staircase, wall-width windows and hotel-quality bed linen, this central penthouse includes one king bed and one double, with a secure bike storage area for any avid cyclists.

£203-225 per night.

Maple Cove | Rossendale Valley

45 minutes’ drive north of town, this brand new countryside idyll forms part of a three-lodge site, each house with its own hot tub, log burner and luxury bathroom. Boasting miles of walking paths and some of the North West’s best views while maintaining good access to the shops and restaurants of a newly regenerated Rawtenstall, Maple Cove is the perfect rural escape with home visible on the horizon.

£204 per night.

High-Spec Townhouse | Deansgate

Sleeping nine, not including the floor-sized hammock which doubles as a ceiling, this bleeding-edge Deansgate townhouse features an opulent yet contemporary master bedroom, a ‘social’ bedroom which fits four, a quieter downstairs room, two fully-equipped living areas, two roof terraces overlooking the John Rylands Library, a hot tub and, somehow, much more.

£540 per night.

Boutique Penthouse | Northern Quarter

Featured in Conde Nast Traveller as ‘the best Airbnb in Manchester’, this achingly tasteful Northern Quarter loft offers a large open-plan living space, a 4k TV with every streaming platform available, Phillips Hue lighting, a dedicated workspace and a spacious balcony.
