Switch Off: Take a dip in Manchester’s infinity pool

Nothing beats an evening swim, unless it’s accompanied by views across a city skyline.

Perched on the seventh floor of the King Street Townhouse Hotel, a small south-facing infinity spa pool overlooks Manchester’s town hall and clock tower, whose views are made even better by the orangey-pink hues of the sun setting over the rooftops. The hotel spa area also includes a steam room and relaxation area (with panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows), and you can even book in a massage or facial, if you really want to unwind.

Collect eggs from the hen coop, check on the goats and sheep, chow down on a homemade egg sandwich and have cuddles with the resident sheepdogs – all in a morning’s work on Rossendale’s Cronkshaw Fold Farm.
