Weekend escapes – under 2 hours from Manchester

It's Friday, work's officially over, and that means your weekend getaway has arrived! Manchester is pretty handy for the countryside in any case, with the Peak District on your doorstep and the Lake District not much further, but we've put together a handy guide to some weekend escapes from the city that you might not have thought of. Give yourself 2 hours at most from Manchester, by car or train, and we'll have you inside a cosy boutique hotel, country pub, relaxing B&B or chilled-out glamping spot in time for Friday night dinner. Lakeside, seaside, countryside, or even York or Birmingham city break – you can do it all from Manchester in an easy weekend. That's the Cool Place taken care of – the rest of the weekend is all yours!
