Diggle House Farm Cottages
These delightful, stone-built barn conversion cottages are located on a high promontory, in beautiful rolling countryside near the village of Diggle in the heart of Saddleworth, on the edge of the Peak District. These Saddleworth cottages have been thoughtfully converted to provide excellent facilities, yet they still retain the character and charm of the original dwellings and boast breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. With green technology, this is a wonderful opportunity to stay in traditional accommodation on a working farm and riding school, but also enjoy the home comforts of underfloor heating, solar electricity, rainwater harvesting and hot water supplied from pipes laid within the ground. Modern styling and contemporary furnishings are evident throughout these Diggle cottages which feature open plan living areas with a modern kitchen and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Upstairs, the cottages feature a modern bathroom and bedrooms with lovely views of the nearby fells. Nearby, Diggle has two traditional pubs, a newsagent, Post Office and a popular chip shop. There is a network of excellent walks, bridleways and cycle routes along valleys or up to the moors that offer glorious views from the cottage, plus other picturesque Saddleworth villages are short drives away. A scenic journey across the moors will bring you to the tourist locations of Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Marsden, Meltham and Holmfirth. Saddleworth and the surrounding areas boast a wide selection of gastropubs and restaurants, plus there is a variety of individual food and farm shops and supermarkets all around.

About the location
Uppermill 3 miles; Oldham 9 miles; Huddersfield 17 miles.
Diggle is one of seven villages nestling amongst the 18,000 acres of moorland hills, open fields and scenic valleys that comprise the Saddleworth area. These Pennine villages have a wool spinning and agricultural heritage dating back to the Industrial Revolution, but today Saddleworth has evolved into an attractive South Pennine and Peak District National Park area with breathtaking views and glorious stone built buildings. Diggle is a thriving little village with a good range of amenities and is well placed to explore the South Pennine region. Part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located at one end of the recently restored Standedge Canal Tunnel, Britain's longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel. In the heart of the village are the Hanging Gate pub, the Diggle Hotel pub, a newsagent, a post office/off licence and a children’s indoor Activity Centre. There is a brass band club called the Diggle Band Club which regularly hosts band contests and concerts and The Diggle Blues Festival is an annual event that takes place in June and Diggle is one of the villages that hosts the Whit Friday Band Contests. Saddleworth is home to a wide range of festivals and community events, the most famous of which is the Whit Friday Band contest, which attracts the UK’s and Europe’s top brass bands and was the backdrop to the film ‘Brassed Off’. Nearby attractions include Dovestones Reservoir for boating and walks, and the Castleshaw Valley with an interpretation trail for a Roman fort, the highest of a series built on the Roman military road from Chester to York.
