  • "Quirky, comfy cottage with good views and a peaceful location."

    The hot tub is welcome after long days walking. The beds are very comfortable and luxurious as is the deep roll top bath.

  • "We had a fantastic time in this wonderful cottage ."

    It was clean and tidy with the luxury of a bath in the bedroom. Extremely comfortable beds too. The hot tub was an added bonus which we loved , It was an excellent week with fabulous weather to see the beautiful scenery in the Peak District .

  • "Beautiful property in a perfect location."

    The balance of having a large city and a national park nearby is amazing for us, we like to stay in tranquil locations and explore the countryside but also like the convenience of being near a large town (in this case of course, the massive Manchester) so location was perfect for us. The cottage itself also has a perfect balance of cozy and modern, there was nothing we felt we needed but didn't have, hot tub was lovely. Will definitely be coming back!

  • "We had a lovely stay in Clock Cottage."

    Fab location for exploring the Pennines. Slightly disappointed that we couldn’t see the Clock from the outside but enjoyed the inside view of it nevertheless. Hot tub is wonderful!

  • "Lovely clean, cosy, well furnished property."

    Very comfortable beds & good shower. Welcome gift of Prosecco & biscuits was a lovely gesture. The hot tub was a fab addition too. Lots to do in the area, some lovely walks from the property and nearby. Uppermill & the canal and Dovestone reservoir being especially worth a visit.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage."

    Very tastefully decorated and comfortable and so warm with the underfloor heating. The bed is amazingly comfortable and the hot tub is wonderful and very private. Wonderful views all around. Lovely and kind touch from the owners with a bottle of prosecco and chocolate biscuits on arrival. Would definitely recommend Clock Cottage.

  • "Great property, very welcoming and clean."

    The hot tub was a great addition and we used this both nights to relax. The only downside was the electric gates breaking meaning we had to leave the car where it was and climb over the wall however despite only being back from holiday a few hours before, the owner came through that night and sorted this for us for which we were very grateful. We would definitely recommend to friends/family and we will definitely be staying again

  • "Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location."

    The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the lounge area could have had another comfortable chair as there were 4 adults so not able to all completely relax at the same time.

    This was a girls holiday but perfect for families or couples too. Would definitely recommend clock cottage.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage home from home."

    Clean and comfortable everything that you would need while you are away. It rained every day but we still used the hot tub and enjoyed every minute of the holiday. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to relax and enjoy. Plenty of places to eat and shopping at nearby villages is great. Also Manchester not far away so the choice is yours. Plenty of beautiful scenery and walks if it's not pouring down. Really enjoyed our stay would go again thank you for a lovely break

  • "We had a enjoyable stay at Clock Cottage, the owner was welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area."

    The hot tub was amazing, perhaps one of the best we’ve been in!!! The beds were very comfortable and it was a good base to explore the Peak District and surrounding areas of Manchester. It was extremely easy to get a tram from Oldham to Manchester and cheap too (£7.50 return for a travel card for a family of 4) . We visited 2 National trust properties Lyme and Dunham Massey which were both incredible. The cottage would be even better if it had comfortable seating for 4 people as one of us had to sit on a hard chair in the evening!!!!

    It is well presented and well equipped. We went as a family of four and the kids and we all had a brilliant stay. The kids loved the hot tub. The owner is friendly and even put some banners up for me that I sent in advance for my wifes birthday. We will be back!

  • "We had a lovely time at Clock Cottage."

    The weather was not good to us that week but the cottage is so welcoming and homely we still enjoyed our holiday. The double bed is extremely comfortable. Loved having a bath especially in our room. So many places are taking baths out and just having showers. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to cook. We watched plenty of films on Netflix iPlayer and Itvhub. You need your own sign ins. The hot tub is great and secluded from sight. The cottage was decorated lovely and was beautifully clean. We visited Dovestone reservoir which is really great. Climbed to the top of the hills and the views were spectacular.

    The only thing that I would recommend would be for there to be more towels as these are used alot with the fabulous hot tub. We had a great time, thanks, Sara.

The property

Make your way through private electric gates, surrounded by open countryside and idyllic landscapes at Clock Cottage, a gorgeous abode found on the owner's grounds, perfect for a family of four to rest their heads, or potentially five if making use of the additional pull out bed.

Make your way down several stone steps to the entrance patio, benefiting from seating and a chimenea, with a wrap around pathway to a private garden boasting AstroTurf and a luxurious hot tub for relaxing evenings.

Step into the open-plan living area and onto the flagstone flooring with sumptuous underfloor heating, equipped with a fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and oven with hob.

Rustle up a delicious meal and set the table for an intimate dinner over your home-cooking, before relaxing on the plush sofa for a film night.

The ground floor is also home to a handy cloakroom, and accompanied by a tremendous character feature which can be seen from the outside - the unique circular stone window was originally from the clock face of the village church, giving the cottage it's name.

Retreat upstairs to one of two stunning bedrooms, comprising a master king-size with its very own lavish freestanding bath, or a twin room which can be made into a king-size if needed, benefiting from its very own terraced balcony with seating, a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet glass of wine looking out to exceptional views.

Prepare for a day ahead in the sleek shower room, waking up with a refreshing soak in the large walk-in shower before being welcomed by a toasty towel from the heated rail.

Stroll over to the welcoming village pub, The White Hart Inn, and enjoy a refreshing pint accompanied by some hearty pub grub before heading out for a walk next to scenes of serene landscapes as the sun sets at the end of far-reaching greenery.

Enjoy a canal side walk and visit the cafes, pubs and award winning ice cream parlour in picturesque Uppermill, and stock up on essentials for your self-catered stay at one of the stores in the local surrounding villages at Grotton, Greenfield, Mossley or Lees to name a few.

Break away for a day of adventure at one of the nearby attractions on the way to the stunning Peak District National Park, taking a challenging hike up Tandle Hill View Point or over to Holmfirth for a peaceful walk along Kirklees Way.

Alternatively, enjoy a wander along the Peak Hidden Trails, offering a range of guided walks among woodland, rugged hills and moorlands, whilst ramblers can tackle a steep ascent up Bleaklow.

Visit the historic town of Radcliffe, home to Radcliffe Tower, Tythe Barn and Outwood Country Park, whilst Bury Castle and the Holy Trinity Church are to be explored at Bury market town, as well as attractions such as Lancaster Park and Animal Farm, Heaton Park and the Tramway Transport Museum.

About the location


Huddersfield 13.8 miles; Manchester 13.9 miles; Buxton 26.9 miles.

Resting in between the bustling market town of Huddersfield and the thriving city of Manchester, is the civil parish of Saddleworth, comprising of several villages and hamlets, covering a northern area of the Peak District National Park. Historically, Saddleworth has its roots in the textile industry, becoming a centre for cotton spinning and weaving after the Industrial Revolution, with one of its most notable structures, the Saddleworth Viaduct, built to help the transport of goods to major cities. Nowadays, you can enjoy the lovely villages which are scattered amongst rural countryside, with ten reservoirs to its name and an excellent 18-hole golf course at Saddleworth Golf Club. Delight in walks around Dovestone Reservoir, where an easy access path guides you along the waters, stopping on the way at Chew Brook to explore the rocks and dip your toes in the running stream, with two further reservoirs, Greenfield and Yeoman Hay, to explore you can extend your walk however much you like. As well as wildlife spotting, horse riding, climbing and its own sailing club here too, you are sure to find something for every taste. Head into the heart of the Peaks and incorporate Howden Dam into a ramble, or get to know the luscious landscape of Snake Woodland. Take a day trip into Manchester, home of the Palace Theatre, the National Football Museum, and the Manchester Art Gallery, just some of the wonderful places you can enjoy while you visit, amidst the wide array of astounding restaurants and cafés here too. From quaint villages, to vast countryside, to lively towns, you are within reach of it all when enjoying a fabulous stay in Saddleworth.
