This side of town and next door to Didsbury, Chorlton is possibly the hottest spot outside the city centre right now. A short journey into town as well as the easy motorway links out have contributed to the high demand here. Chorlton has long been known for its chilled, hippy vibe and there is a huge choice of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants in the village.


The Unicorn Grocery cooperative attracts people from far and wide (don’t even bother trying to get in the car park at the weekend) for it’s fresh goods and Chorlton Ees Nature Reserve makes you feel further than a few miles away from the city centre. Love Thy Neighbour, The Laundrette and The Lead Station are just a couple of the most popular places to eat/drink.


Chorlton has the perfect mix of suburban and city centre living without the crazy prices or commute.
