The England 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.

Manchester

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

“Delightful cottage in a lovely location.”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2016

Stayed here in late December and was pleasantly surprised to find the interior far superior to the photos - they really don't do it justice! Kitchen is well-equipped and has gas hob which was ideal. Lovely log fire and cosy living room with plenty of space and comfy sofas. Media facilities are excellent - large TV with Sky, DVD player and PS4 (which also plays Blu-Ray discs) and a bookshelf full of assorted CDs, DVDs and books. Upstairs has two bedrooms each with their own bathroom attached - both have good showers (powerful and plenty of hot water). Off-road parking is available on the driveway and you're a 10-minute drive from a supermarket and railway station in Greenfield (with services direct to Manchester) which was very useful and reasonably priced. Very friendly owners welcomed us in and were very accommodating. Highly recommended!

Many thanks for writing this review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay here and found the cottage comfortable and cosy.

“Excellent accommodation and location...”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2014

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!

“Cozy, well equiped, perfect location and very comfortable”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2013

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.

“Delightful, comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

A great place to stay - incredible views over the hills and a lovely rural location but close to amenities and only 10 minutes drive to Uppermill which is a great centre for pubs and cafe's. Easy links to Manchester, Leeds and everywhere in between. The cottage is very comfortable with excellent facilities and the unobtrusive owners are friendly, helpful and welcoming. We've stayed at Standedge Foot cottage twice now and we will definitely return.

“Fantastic!”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

My partner and I recently stayed in the cottage and we had such a lovely, relaxing time. The area is great for walks and enjoying the countryside. The cottage itself is like a home from home. The furnishings are modern and comfortable. The layout is excellent The hosts Les and Karen were very friendly and welcoming and super helpful. We would recommend the cottage to anyone and look forward to a return visit in the near future.

“We had a wonderful stay at Standedge Foot Cottage and the owners were warm, friendly, hospitable and very accommodating.”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

We were looking for a cottage in the area for just 5 nights. Many other cottages were not able to accommodate us as they were only taking bookings from Saturday to Saturday but the owners were more than accommodating. The cottage was very comfortable and was just what we needed. We originally booked for just 2 adults and a toddler, but we took my wife's Mum with us and there was plenty of room. We put our little boy in a carry cot which was provided by the owners. The cottage was in a picturesque location but very accessible. We couldn't have asked for more. We were made to feel very welcome and would definitely use the cottage again.
