  • “This is a wonderful cottage.”

    The kitchen is very well supplied with virtually everything you'd need - rolling pin, grater etc, as well as an array of pots and pans. Full sets of dinnerware, glasses and cutlery - there's little you could need that's not there. ...

    The kitchen is very well supplied with virtually everything you'd need - rolling pin, grater etc, as well as an array of pots and pans. Full sets of dinnerware, glasses and cutlery - there's little you could need that's not there. The layout is fab, with a downstairs utility/boot room area, with loo off, and the living area is splendid too. Spacious enough not to feel cramped, but not too large so as to feel impersonal. Outside is lovely, but the weather was pants so we didn't try out the firepit/bbq. The beds are really comfy, the bathroom is lovely, the towels super-fluffy, and everything has been thought through with guests' comfort in mind. The walls are feet thick, literally, and the windows double glazed and the property higher than the road, so there was no issue with the road whatsoever, even with the windows open. The view is very lovely, the countryside is stunning, everyone we met was so friendly, it's very easy to get to (check it out on streetview first to make sure you know just where you are going ......follow the postvan!!) - there really is nothing bad to say about Upper House Cottage - would go again in a hearbeat. The farm shop down the road is fantastic - really worth a visit. We didn't get chance to lunch in the cafe, but would have loved to.

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.
