  • “Fantastic Cottage.”

    We've been doing these getaways for about 8 years now. This was the one we were a little apprehensive about as it wasn't far from where we live and didn't feel "exotic" and If you look at the pictures in comparison to other cottages - you wouldn't be as enthused as you would with other cottages that are on Sykes (or other websites) However, the pictures honestly don't do it justice - it's like a reverse catfish. The main lounge dining area is huge. The bedrooms were large and some bathrooms ...

    We've been doing these getaways for about 8 years now. This was the one we were a little apprehensive about as it wasn't far from where we live and didn't feel "exotic" and If you look at the pictures in comparison to other cottages - you wouldn't be as enthused as you would with other cottages that are on Sykes (or other websites) However, the pictures honestly don't do it justice - it's like a reverse catfish. The main lounge dining area is huge. The bedrooms were large and some bathrooms were large too. I'm a bit of a snob about showers and this one is probably 2nd best shower I've had in a cottage/lodge/villa. The beds are insanely comfy. Then there's the outside - again - miles bigger than the pictures make it look. But also much more picturesque. The BBQ hut is a good size too and a real cool place to hang out. Hot Tub isn't massive but was decent size. The views are tip top and there's the allure of sheep and cattle in the neighbouring fields. The pub down the road is also a decent gaff. Nice staff and good Scampi - the chips are good too. The only slightly negative things - one was the Aga - it was on all the time and the first day was pretty hot so it added to that. The glasses were also plastic and a bit random (not a massive issue for us really) But I'm nit picking - all in all top cottage - 10 on 10! Oh and we also met 1/2 of the owners who was a top bloke - sometimes you worry they're going to be a bit snooty but he showed us round on first day and sorted the hot tub chemicals on the 2nd day and was a good craic!

The property

Enveloped by the rural countryside of Greater Manchester is Rough Bank Barn, offering an outstanding self-catering experience to this peaceful part of the county, which lies on the edges on the Peak District National Park.

This superb barn conversion is an exceptional find for large groups of families, friends, avid ramblers and those alike to use as a base to explore the surrounding countryside, as well as for paying a visit to the exciting city of Manchester.

After travelling up the single-track road, find plenty of space to park your car and admire the endless open countryside views, before pushing open the front door of the stone-built property to reveal the large open-plan living room.

In here, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings frame this perfectly portioned room; the huge floor-to-ceiling windows are a striking element, as is the woodburning stove set within a traditional surround.

Cosy up after a bracing day walking on the plush sofas to tune into the TV, with the fire setting the ambiance and filling the room with a gentle warmth or gather at the dining table to relish in the company of your loved ones over a home-cooked meal and an accompanying tipple.

Discover the well-equipped kitchen to the opposite end of the room, where contemporary tiles lie beneath a traditional AGA, which takes centre stage before all of the other quality appliances that are on hand for catering your own meals and snacks.

Working in synergy with the kitchen is the handy utility room, housing a freezer and laundry equipment, as well as plenty of preparation space to keep the kitchen clutter free for the chef of the group, whilst they are cooking up a storm.

At this end of the property, a staircase takes you to a super king-size double bedroom, which boasts large wardrobe storage, whilst back on the ground floor are a further three bedrooms, comprising of two super king-size bedrooms, and a king-size double bedroom, each one boasting windows out to the garden and an elegant décor to complement.

Concluding the ground floor is a sleek shower room and a deluxe bathroom, featuring a Jacuzzi bath.

The master suite can be found on the first floor, where quality linens drape across the sumptuous double bed and it has a private en-suite bathroom, containing a wall-mounted TV, a luxurious Jacuzzi bath and a separate walk-in shower, whilst the final bedroom of the property boasts an impressive king-size bed, where sleep is sure to come easy.

At Rough Bank Barn, the garden has been designed as an extension of the house itself, with lush green lawn areas for children to play and your canine companion to meander, whilst you kick back on the sun loungers to soak up the sunshine or dine alfresco on the patio area.

Continuing to impress, within the garden there is a barbecue hut, where you can light up the fire and huddle inside to relish in this unique experience before savouring a moment of relaxation by dipping into the bubbling hot tub, where the countryside views continue to captivate.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful retreat, venture into the nearby village of Newhey, where you will find a plethora of amenities, ranging from supermarkets, pubs and an array of eateries to suit all palates and pockets!

Alternatively, travel slightly further afield to the large town of Rochdale, home to more amenities or to the city of Manchester, which is just 16.5 miles away and is easily accessible with a tram stop in the village to get you there, where you will find more places to eat and drink, as well as the magnificent Manchester Art Gallery, the People's History Museum and the imposing 13th century Manchester Cathedral.

Avid ramblers and birdwatchers can visit the nearby Crompton Moor to catch glimpses of the interesting wildlife or take on the challenge of a hike through Fairbrook Naze, boasting unrivalled views of the luscious green landscapes.

Within immediate walking distance and with accessible paths takes you to a selection of reservoirs to enjoy including Ogden, Kitcliffe, Rooden, Norman Hill, Piethorn and Hanging Lees.

Further walking opportunities can be found within the nearby Peak District National Park, whilst the local attractions of the Hollingworth Lake Visitor Centre and the National Trust owned Marsden Moor Estate, will delight a family of all ages.

Bring your loved ones to Rough Bank Barn to share an exceptional holiday.
