  • "The property is beautiful, and matches the description."

    Most people will be extremely comfortable there. However, the beds and lounge seating were too soft for us. Perhaps firmness or not of beds and sofas etc should be detailed in the description as for many people softness does not equal comfort. Also, I think small bath towels seem a bit mean in accommodation that is not ‘budget’.

  • "We were contacted by Nigel the owner before we arrived to check if we needed directions etc."

    Very friendly welcome and a tour of the properties. This house is beautiful with everything we needed , thermostats in each room and a huge bath in one en suite. Lane to get there needs attention but that won't stop us booking again. Thank you to the hosts for making our stay so lovely

  • "Cottage had everything needed, owners onsite helpful but never felt like was watched or noticed were around unless needed."

    Very warm cottage, relaxed location lovely views enjoyed our stay and felt relaxed when left. Has everything you could need clean tidy and spacious. Tram to Manchester nearby would certainly recommend if traveling into the city, ideal location for country views and walks but has all local amenities along with the views so not isolated would highly recommend

  • "A lovely place - quiet, spectacular views, dark at night so we could see the stars."

    The cottage was comfortable, very well equipped, light and airy, warm too. The drive down to the farm certainly deters joy riders - there’s no way anyone could race down there. Hollingworth Lake is virtually on the doorstep, wonderful for watersports, and there’s also horse riding nearby. Good walking routes start on the doorstep and there’s plenty of retail therapy and culture to be had in Rochdale. We got there using the Metrolink from the village of Milnrow - quick, easy and unbelievably cheap! All in all, this is a gem of a place and superb value for money.

  • "The views from Oak Cottage are enough to bring a tear to the eye."

    After the pandemic I am sure most people will appreciate the beauty of the moorland and woodland surrounding the property. For me and my family our short stay was full of laughter and we left full of memories and a hope that we will be able to return soon.

Sitting on the outskirts of Milnrow, Greater Manchester is this impressive, eco-built cottage, Oak Cottage.

With air source underfloor heating, oak detailing throughout, and set on a working farm, this family-friendly cottage provides a warm welcome to four guests holidaying in North West England.

Arrive to find off-road parking for three cars, unpack your luggage and get settled in with ease.

Inside the beautifully constructed property is a contemporary kitchen with excellent facilities to prepare your favourite dishes, including an electric oven, halogen hob and microwave.

Gather around the table for six in the dining room with rustic, oak beams and patio doors bringing in plenty of natural light.

After loading up the dishwasher, bring a cold glass of wine into the sitting room to sink into the cushioned seating and choose a family-favourite on the Smart TV.

Two outdoor spaces include a private patio with seating and a shared courtyard to savour the last of the evening sun in your gorgeous, rural surroundings!

Whether you explore local towns or trek through the Peak District National Park, find a ground-floor wet room at Oak Cottage to quickly freshen up before dinner.

Upstairs, you'll find two minimally decorated bedrooms with storage space and en-suites, suitable for couples, families, and friends; the super-king-size zip/link has an en-suite shower room, while the king-size hosts an en-suite bathroom with a stunning, tiled bath.

If you're seeking the great outdoors, Oak Cottage is in the perfect location with footpaths and bridleways close to Hollingworth Lake with all its water activities, Watergrove reservoir and Sustrans route 66.

While on-site you can try your hand at horse riding!

Head into the historic town of Milnrow with listed weavers' cottages, The Gallows pub serving British classics, and Bellavista Restaurant for countryside views with traditional pasta and pizzas; alternatively, stock up at the convenience store or supermarket if you'd prefer to stay in!

Bring your clubs for a game at Whittaker Golf Club, just outside the town of Littleborough, home to Hare Hill House heritage museum and park with far-reaching, rural views.

Be sure to visit Rochdale for plenty of local culture at Touchstones Rochdale and Rochdale Pioneers Museum, while Healey Dell Nature Reserve is a peaceful beauty spot for wildlife watching, walking, and fishing.

If you're looking for a livelier day out, the bustling city of Manchester is within easy reach for plenty of bars, restaurants, and pubs, as well as museums, art galleries, and plenty of shops to choose from.

Further afield lies the market town of Glossop to stop for lunch before embarking on an adventure in the Peak District National Park; there are plenty of hikes to choose from close by including Snake Woodland, Fairbrook Naze, and the memorial wreckage of Bleaklow Bomber, a US Air Force that crashed here in 1948.
