    “We loved the cottage, however it would have been useful to have better descriptions in accessing the keys as there were 2 key safes and code only worked with one.”

    The instructions to find the property could be improved as it was difficult to locate in the dark.

    The instructions to find the property could be improved as it was difficult to locate in the dark. In terms of the cottage it was lovely, beds were really comfortable however, I would recommend a measuring jug, large bowl and perhaps some scales be added to kitchen items. I would also recommend some sort of clothes dryer for days when the washing line cannot be used

About the property

A superb, Grade II listed, semi-detached cottage, located outside the village of Lees, just fifteen minutes from the Peak District National Park.

Originally workers’ cottages built in the 1600s, this well-presented holiday home retains traditional features such as exposed beams.

Perfect for a family or group of friends, Knolls Farm Cottage has a large sitting room with a welcoming woodburning stove, perfect for cosy evenings in front of the smart TV.

The dining room has enough seating for the whole group to enjoy hearty meals together, and afterwards the PlayStation will keep the children entertained.

When it comes to preparing meals, you are spoilt for choice with two excellent kitchens, a cosy kitchen to the rear of the dining room and a larger kitchen with a range cooker accessed via the sitting room.

From the sitting room, a set of stairs take you upstairs to two of the cottage’s bedrooms, a double and a twin, and a modern family bathroom.

A second set of stairs from the dining room lead to the second family bathroom and the last two bedrooms, a king-size double and a double.

To the outside of Knolls Farm Cottage you have an enclosed lawned garden to the front with a patio and seating area for you to enjoy alfresco dining in the summer evenings.

The village of Lees has a selection of amenities including a local shop, pub and eateries.

From the cottage you can access a path leading 12 miles to the Pennine Way, or take a shorter 3-mile walk to the Folly.

The picturesque Peak District is just a short drive away, offering spectacular views and a variety of outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling and horse riding.

Children will love the nearby petting zoo, whilst a day trip to Manchester is a must.

Park and ride the tram into the city centre and discover museums, galleries, theatre, shopping and excellent eateries.

Knolls Farm Cottage is an excellent choice for a group holiday.

About the location


Uppermill 1 mile; Oldham 7 miles; Huddersfield 15.5 miles.

Greenfield 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. Greenfield is a thriving little village with a good range of amenities, and well placed to explore the South Pennine region. Greenfield has Saddleworth’s largest park in Churchill Playing Fields, which includes a skateboard park and tennis courts. It also has the canal marina and Saddleworth’s train station, which is an extremely popular stopping off point on the ‘Real Ale Rail Trail’ and offers easy access into Manchester for a city visit. Live entertainment at local pubs includes folk, rock, jazz and classical guitar concerts, and the ‘Off the Rails’ comedy club.
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’. Another well loved film ‘Yanks’ was set in Saddleworth and is also commemorated by a major weekend festival.
Almost every weekend features a visitor attraction, be it a canal festival, vintage car rally, the Saddleworth Rushcart procession, real ale festival, morris dancing competition or the well regarded Farmer’s Market. 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.
