Top spots for a getaway near Manchester 

Do you need a break from the hustle and bustle of Manchester? The greater area is full of hidden gems, perfect for a weekend getaway or a relaxing staycation. With so many options to choose from, there’s something for everyone. 

Whether you prefer to marvel at historic sites or breathe in the fresh air while strolling the country, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for a Manchester getaway. We’ve put together a few of our favourites to kickstart your research. 

England’s Lake District 

England’s Lake District is a short 90-minute drive north of Manchester and boasts outstanding natural beauty. As one of the most picturesque areas in the nation, a trip to the area will leave you feeling inspired. While you’re there, make sure that you enjoy a cruise on Lake Windermere! 


Altrincham is a charming town whose history extends as far back as 1290 and includes various attractions such as Stamford Park and Dunham Massey Hall. The old market town is south of the River Mersey and a short trip from Manchester Central, making it a fantastic spot to enjoy a change of scenery. 


Hop onto the train and take an hour’s ride to the stunning area of York. The quaint city is filled with charming shops and galleries that mimic mediaeval times, taking you back in time. If you’re looking for a weekend break or an overnight getaway, then York is a great option! 


Travelling nine kilometres east of Manchester will find yourself in Ashton-Under-Lyne, a majestic old town with several attractions. From one of Midland’s oldest churches to the Museum of the Manchester Regiment, there are plenty of interesting activities to keep you entertained. 


The tiny village of Styal is located near Wilmslow and is home to Quarry Bank Mill, Europe’s largest working textile museum. The area is filled with many historic buildings and shops, with a choice of adorable cottages to spend the night in. 

With so many charming areas around Manchester to explore, we won’t be surprised if you choose to invest in a holiday home. At Storage World, we have three conveniently located self storage facilities to keep your household belongings and seasonal items as you move between locations.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
