A charming Grade II-listed former gatehouse, ornately designed and beautifully positioned within the grounds of Manchester's vast, historic Heaton Park.
Conveniently set on the outskirts of Manchester city centre, Heaton Park is listed on the English Heritage Register, and is one of Europe's largest municipal parks.
A distinctive, eight-sided building that dates back to 1806, the Grade II-listed Smithy Lodge was once the park's gatehouse, now mesmerisingly transformed into a charming retreat for up to four guests.
There's an instantly welcoming atmosphere as you step inside, to be greeted by a sumptuous, high-ceilinged lounge with soft lamp lighting, and a spacious kitchen and dining area.
Meanwhile, just up the original steep stairs await a family bathroom and two elegant bedrooms: a superking and a twin.
Once you've settled in, you can explore your historic surroundings with ease. Amongst many other delights, Heaton Park is home to several cafés, a farm, a tram museum, a boating lake, and a championship-quality golf course...truly offering something for everyone.
