  • "This is an excellent property."

    We very much enjoyed our stay at The Loft. Well located beside Hollingworth Lake. Good access to Manchester via rail from nearby Smithy Bridge station. Littleborough nearby for supermarket supplies. Plenty of eateries, good coffee and plant based food options within walking distance. Matthew, our host, made sure that we had everything we needed. If the opportunity presents we will stay at The Loft again. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely clean and welcoming flat."

    However please note neither of the pictures showing the front of the property actually are of the property itself. In particular, you don't get the balcony with views over the lake.

  • "I stayed at the Loft for a total of 4 weeks having travelled back to the UK from Australia to visit family and friends."

    The location was great for my visit and to venture out from being a keen hiker! The property along with it's facilities and plenty of space was very good and hassle free throughout. Glad I came across this one when initially doing my research.

  • "Property was excellent!"

    If I had to nit pick, there were 2 things that I would say were a very, very minor inconveniences - 1. There was no 2-pin socket to recharge razors, electric toothbrushes, etc. (unless I was unable to find it). 2. I, at 5ft 2ins. was unable to use the mirror in the bathroom as it was fitted too high on the wall above the sink. However, there were numerous mirrors located around the apartment that I was able to use. As I said these 2 items were only very, very minor inconveniences and I would certainly come again, provided Matthew & Jane would have me back after the above comments! Overall a really enjoyable stay at a property provided by two ultra friendly people. Matthew & Jane every good luck for the future! Mary & Gerry Quinn

  • "Ideal spot for exploring the area, lovely setting overlooking the lake with lots of local restaurants especially the RIVA spotlessly clean restaurant fabulous food & wine every time."

    Mathew the owner of the loft over the lake was excellent & when I text him to ask if there was a Nespresso machine so I could bring my coffee pods he text me back to say that there will be one installed by the time we get there and yes it was there on arrival Excellent, The bed is so comfortable with your own dedicated parking space which is a must for this busy area.

A first-floor apartment situated at the centre of the action, The Loft at the Lake offers all you could need for a week-long escape with your loved one.

Park up in your private off-road parking space before taking the external steps up to the first floor where you will be greeted by your very own private terrace; a lovely spot to soak in the evening sun or indulge in a hearty breakfast.

Take the internal steps up to find your wonderful apartment, discovering a welcoming open-plan living space where you can spend your time unwinding when you're not out adventuring.

Take a seat before the Smart TV where you can indulge in some lighthearted entertainment while the keen cook of the two takes to the immaculate kitchen where you can find all the essentials for your stay such as an electric oven and gas hob, microwave and a fridge/freezer, while the utility even hosts a handy washing machine!

Soak in your superb views from the dining table, before washing away the day with a soak in the bath, with an overhead shower available too.

End your evening cosied up within the extremely spacious super-king-size bedroom, which can be made into two single beds on request if you're travelling with a friend, with a TV in here too so you can watch all your favourite films from the comfort of the covers.

Set off on foot and enjoy a leisurely stroll around the perimeter of Hollingworth Lake, soaking in the stunning scenery of the scenic waters, indulging in a spot of award-winning ice cream at The Pavilion en route, idyllically nestled on the edge of the lake.

Venture into the heart of Littleborough, home to a plethora of shops along with an exciting selection of eateries, including traditional country pubs and delicious takeaways, as well as a number of elegant bars, promising a fabulous night on the town.

About the location


  • Hebden Bridge 10 miles
  • Saddleworth 11 miles

Set beneath hills and wild moorland at the edge of the Pennines, the area around Littleborough is dissected by tranquil waterways and lakes where you can explore some of the North West’s finest countryside. Sweeping hillsides and rolling hills are right on the doorstep with the village also offering coffee shops, restaurants and unique independent retailers. Littleborough Farmers' Market and Craft Fair is worth a visit and is held on the second Sunday of every month. Hollingworth Lake and Country Park is just outside the village and visitors can enjoy many outdoor attractions and an excellent visitor centre. Spanning 118 acres with the dramatic backdrop of Blackstone Edge, the lake is one of the most popular days out in the area. With boating, a nature reserve, trails, events, guided walks, community arts, environmental exhibitions, play and picnic areas it is the perfect day out for all the family. The water activity centre caters for groups and individuals wanting instruction in windsurfing, dinghy sailing and other water-based sports, and also arranges training for groups in mountain biking and climbing. The lake is also a base for a sailing club and a rowing club. The Country Park has plenty of walking routes, from easy strolls around the lake shore to sturdier treks in the surrounding hills. Littleborough is ideally situated to visit the Yorkshire Dales and the northern Peak District as well as being within easy reach of the vibrant cities of Manchester and Leeds, both of which can be reached via the train station at Littleborough. With its beautiful preserved stone buildings, Littleborough and nearby Hollingworth Lake and Country Park are well worth a visit.
