          Hi, I'm Eliza Alex, and I will be travelling to Manchester next month. We plan to visit Lake District on 15th and hope to stay on till the 18th of August. I was wondering if you have accomodation, and if you could indicate the price per night as well. I would be travelling with my husband and infant. We do not require a baby cot.
