THOUGHT Airbnb was only for hen or stag weekends or a cheap city break in an apartment abroad?

You might have to think again when you see these amazing and quirky properties on their site around the Northwich area.

The online marketplace lets people rent out their properties or spare rooms to guests and is one of the world's fastest-growing holiday websites.

We had a look where visitors can stay when they come to Northwich during a weekend in July.
