About this location

The Greater Manchester region

Saddleworth is a unique area comprising a variety of picturesque villages dating back over many centuries. Many properties are hundreds of years old. Standedge Foot Farm itself dating back to the 1600s. The area is located on the edge of the Peak district National Park and the Lake District, Yorkshire dales and Snowdonia National Parks are all within an hour or twos drive. The large cultural an sporting centres of Manchester Huddersfield and Leeds are easily accessible using the excellent road and rail services. The Moors around Saddleworth are massive and represent one of the very few uncultivated areas let in the country. There are endless walks from challenging strides across the moor land to quiet meanders through the lowland villages. The scenery is ever changing and the light fabulous particularly spring an autumn. There are far too many local attractions to mention.


Location: Delph Village, Saddleworth

Uppermill 2 miles; Marsden 6 miles; Oldham 6 miles.

The picturesque village of Delph is located on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border

and has barely changed from its 19th century hey-day, when its small mills were

at the heart of a thriving community. Today it remains an ideal start for walks

up the Castleshaw Valley to the Roman Fort, one of a series built on the Roman

military road from Chester to York. Delph boasts several village festivals

including a charity beer walk blues weekend and brass band contest! Nearby, the

largest of the Saddleworth villages, Uppermill is situated in the valley below

Saddleworth Church and is dominated by an impressive viaduct. The architecture

of this attractive village is highlighted in the Local Interest Trail leaflets

available from the Tourist Information Centre. Saddleworth Museum highlights the

history of the area from Roman times and also has an art gallery with changing

exhibitions. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the village and the

canal boat trips and boat traffic attract many visitors. Other attractions

include Brownhills Countryside Centre, numerous craft shops, art galleries, gift

shops, restaurants, public houses and tea shops

"Amazing views"

Arrived after heavy snow. On arrival the fire was burning and the driveway had been cleared of snow. A really warm welcome. The cottage was cosy and offered great views over the snow covered valley. A… More

"Excellent accommodation and location..."

Standedge Foot Cottage provided warm, very comfortable, and convenient accommodation. Our hosts, Les and Karen were welcoming and hospitable. We spent eleven nights at the cottage. In the mornings we enjoyed the fabulous views of the landscape and surrounding area. Standedge is the perfect base from which to explore the countryside, and is extremely convenient for the train stations at Greenfield and Marsden. Manchester is a thirty minute (approx.) train journey away. The delightful villages of Saddleworth and Delph are within easy reach (by car of course). Highly recommended!

Great location, lovely setting. Very practical and well equipped. We squeezed two children into the second bedroom, which worked brilliantly for us with a little furniture juggling. Could have benefit… More

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to review our holiday cottage. In fairness however, we would like to respond to some of your observations. You will perhaps recall our concern when you arrived with two adults and two children having made an original booking for three people. Should you have made the booking for four people we would have advised you that the cottage can only accomodate three people as is made clear on the site. You gave us your assurance on arrival that you were happy to accept that space would be consequently restricted particularly in the bedrooms. To now make negative remarks on lack of space in the bedrooms would seem a little unreasonable. As for internet access we agree with you. However, the cottage is some six miles from the nearest BT exchange and as with many rural locations broadband reception is very poor. For this reason we are regretably unable to offer this facility and do not advertise it as available. We have reviewed your other less than five star ratings and have as a result renewed both the mattress and bedding on the single bed. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope that the changes we have made will ensure that we continue to maintain the comprehensive five star reviews we have enjoyed upto this point.

"Cozy, well equiped, perfect location and very comfortable"

We (myself, husband and 2 kids) stayed for a week in the cottage. The location was perfect to travel to Manchester, Stockport, Conwy, Castleton etc. The beds are comfy, the heating works brilliantly and there was an endless supply of firewood. The property is extremely well equiped with everything you could need to cook up a storm. The hosts Les and Karen are such lovely people who could not do enough to make sure we were comfortable and checked in on us without overcrowding us. The rolling hills are spectacular in any weather and local villages are so friendly and welcoming with great pubs to choose from. We would love to come back and stay again one day. Thank you for everything Les and Karen.
