  • "This property is a basic 2-up, 2-down house with a back garden."

    It is quite cosy in some ways, especially at night with the curtains drawn and the telly on. Unfortunately there are some issues with the property. The most significant of these is that the property is currently located on a very noisy building site! Sadly I was not notified of this before booking and I would not have booked it if I had known. If you are considering booking a stay at this property, I would strongly urge you to confirm - in writing - that the building works going on directly behind the property have been completed before you book. It is worth noting too that the property is on a main road which gets quite a lot of traffic, including large trucks and lorries. The noise from the traffic can be considerable and the property physically shakes when a lorry or a truck goes past - this is particularly noticeable in the front bedroom (when trying to sleep!). There are some other issues which are easier to address. Communication about the property and with the property owner is poor. There is no information in the cottage for guests about the heating, WiFi, facilities, etc. The house is also poorly equipped. Though it is a 2- (double) bed property, there is only one pint glass (no other water glasses/tumblers) and only 3 large (dinner) plates. No handwash was provided in the bathroom. The television is quite old, and there is no access to Netflix or other internet streaming services. These are issues which can be more easily remedied and doing so would make the property better value for money. As it stands, it is overpriced and extremely disappointing.

  • "The cottage was quirky, and quite, very comfortable, the lady had gone above and beyond our expectations, Only thing that let it down was the building site at the back."

    And we had gone for restbite.

The property

Offering a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Peak District, The Willows is a charming semi-detached cottage nestled in the village of Greenfield.

Boasting a large enclosed garden and just across the road from a scenic wooded area, The Willows is ideal for two couples or a small family seeking a retreat to the Peaks.

Be welcomed into this traditional cottage following a day of walking and find a snug spot in the sitting room on the sofa or armchair, with a TV to flick on for some evening entertainment, surrounded by the light, neutral décor.

From here, head into the kitchen/diner when you're feeling hungry to rustle up some home-cooked meals with all the essential appliances amidst the fitted units, and a delightful round dining table to gather at.

Enjoy the wonderful enclosed garden when the sun in shining, with a large patio space with outdoor furniture for alfresco dining, plenty of lawn space to relax on and a pretty summerhouse for enjoying peaceful moments, perhaps with a good book or puzzle.

Make your way to the first floor once the evening draws in and discover two double bedrooms to choose from, each decorated in a lovely style with pretty bedding and plenty of storage, served by the bathroom, home to a bath with an overhead shower.

Enjoy walks from your doorstep in the nearby wooded area with a bridleway, perfect for stretching your legs first thing before walking into the village to pick up any essentials for breakfast from the shops.

The village of Greenfield is on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, in the Saddleworth district of Greater Manchester, so is surrounded by lush landscapes to explore.

Begin your adventures with a walk around Dovestone Reservoir, maybe catching sight of the local sailing club practice, before heading to Dovestones Quarry to soak up some lovely views over the water.

The Pennine Way is a great to explore and passed by some of the peaks in the area including Black Hill, Black Chew Head and Bleaklow, the latter home to an aircraft wreckage memorial.

Saddleworth Golf Club is close by and is perfect for any keen golfers seeking to practice their swing, whilst keen anglers can look forward to some quality fishing in the rivers Derwent, Wye and Dove, known for their rainbow trout, wild brown trout and grayling.

For a much-needed break with your loved ones to the Peaks, choose The Willows.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
