  • “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.

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.

Discover vibrant days out at Huddersfield or Manchester city centre, both with amazing shopping facilities, fine dining, lively bars, culture, museums, theatres and history to explore!

Choose Clock Cottage as your base for an exciting trip with your loved ones.

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.
