    “Fabulous Barn conversation although it started off a little rocky as we were arriving in the dark and kept driving past the entrance on the A62.”

    Would it be possible to give more detailed instructions. ...

    Would it be possible to give more detailed instructions. We had a fabulous time and the place was really comfy and well equipped. Lots of lovely walks around. I just have a couple of little niggles/suggestions :- A steamer set for cooking would be great - the pans are a little limited. There is no towel rail on the bathroom. The sink in the bathroom is very small and makes washing one's face quite difficult without splashing on the floor - and let's fave it there is lots of room in there for a bigger one. As I say theses are small things but would enhance the already great experience.

About the location


Uppermill 2 miles; Oldham 6 miles.

The picturesque village of Delph has barely changed from its 19th century hey-day, when it’s small mills were at the heart of a thriving community, and today remains an ideal start for walks up the Castleshaw Valley to the Roman Fort, one of a series built on the Roman military road from Chester to York. Delph boasts several village festivals including a charity beer walk and brass band contest! Nearby, the largest of the Saddleworth villages, Uppermill is situated in the valley below Saddleworth Church and is dominated by an impressive viaduct. The architecture of this attractive village is highlighted in the Local Interest Trail leaflets available from the Tourist Information Centre. Saddleworth Museum highlights the history of the area from Roman times and also has an art gallery with changing exhibitions. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the village and the canal boat trips and boat traffic attract many visitors. Other attractions include Brownhills Countryside Centre, numerous craft shops, art galleries, gift shops, restaurants, public houses and tea shops.
