    “The cottage was lovely and comfortable and quiet the only thing I would say is that the stairs are very steep for children and elderly and also the small climb up from the main road and I hadn’t seen that in the details.”

The property

This charming, stone terraced cottage rests in the village of Greenfield, part of the Saddleworth parish in Greater Manchester, and resting just a stone's throw from the Peak District National Park.

10 West Cottages is a traditional dwelling brought into the 21st century with thoughtful refurbishments and fresh décor, sleeping four guests, it's perfect for a break with family or friends to the Peaks.

Be welcomed into the delightful sitting room, hosting a sofa and two armchairs for you to unwind on as you enjoy watching TV and relish the warmth from the woodburning stove.

Step across the traditional stone flooring and pale green painted wall of the sitting room and continue through to the kitchen; here you can sit together at the breakfast bar for four and tuck into a tasty breakfast to set you up for the day, with a range of excellent appliances for your self-catered stay found here, including a large fridge/freezer and a handy washing machine.

Travel upstairs to the first floor and come to the first bedroom, a lovely double bedroom complete with plenty of hanging space and storage, before finding the second sleeping spot, a twin bedroom, both decorated with crisp, white linens and decoration for a fresh feel.

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.
