Whenever I’ve got a weekend free, and not too many plans, I typically tend to head down south, and end up in Cheshire. It’s a gorgeous part of the country, with beautiful countryside, postcard-perfect little villages, and surprisingly good shopping (one of my favourites is Selfridges at the Trafford Centre). A few weeks back, when were were heading up north from our stay in the Cotswolds, we figured we’d add a pitstop, and sped a night at the glorious Eleven Didsbury Park.
For all the times I’ve visited Cheshire, I don’t think I’ve ever been to Didsbury, but it’s a charming spot – very residential with beautiful Victorian houses. It’s also close to Manchester airport, as well as the Trafford Centre, so if you want a little mini-break prior to jetting off, or if you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, this is a perfect spot to visit.
We were staying in a gorgeous Eclectic Villa Room, which included a sumptuous super king sized bed, separate sitting area, bathtub and even a dressing room! We had been driving up from Oxfordshire on the day we arrived, so having such a gorgeous room to arrive to was an absolute dream.
We had enjoyed supper in Alderley Edge, so the first thing to do was draw a hot bubble bath and relax a bit. The bath is tucked into the corner of the room, and is the perfect spot to read a book and unwind.
The ensuite bathroom was equally luxurious, with a roomy rainfall shower, and it came fully stocked with lush Temple Spa toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels.
After an absolutely heavenly night’s sleep (seriously, the bed was insanely comfortable) we headed downstairs to enjoy breakfast. We kicked things off with a freshly squeezed orange juice and some fresh berry smoothies.
We couldn’t resist ordering a full English breakfast. With sausages, scrambled eggs, bacon, mushroom, tomato and black pudding, it was a perfect way to set ourselves up for the long drive up north.
I opted for the Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on an English Muffin. Light and fluffy eggs went perfectly with the salmon, and it was a delicious end to our little stay-cation!
Thank you so much to Eleven Didsbury Park for having us! You can find out more about the hotel here.
