About the property

Surrounded by open countryside and idyllic landscapes, Millie’s Cottage is nestled in the rural village of Greenfield, in the parish of Saddleworth.

On the doorstep of the Peak District National Park, and within easy reach of the bustling city of Manchester, this charming abode provides the perfect base for couples, friends or family looking for a country escape, close enough to also explore the city. Kick off your muddy walking boots as you step over the threshold and enter a convenient hallway space, offering handy storage to house your outdoor gear away from the main living areas. The adjoining kitchen/diner is well equipped to prepare a heart-warming meal; gather your loved ones around the intimate dining table to indulge in your culinary delights as you plan your exciting holiday itinerary. In the warmer months, step outside for a leisurely seat on the patio, directly overlooking the Huddersfield Narrow canal, enveloped in the greenery of the well-maintained gardens.

Relax in the tranquillity of the perpetual sound of water flowing through the adjacent canal lock, as you toast a glass of fizz to a fantastic holiday. As the day draws to a close, retreat upstairs, dim the bathroom lights and end each day in style with a seat amongst the bubbles in the elegant jacuzzi bath before retiring for the evening to rest your head in one of the two double bedrooms. Step outside and enjoy a canal side walk into the picturesque villages of Greenfield or Uppermill, where you'll be spoilt for choice with the selection of eateries on offer.

From quaint cafes, traditional country pubs and delicious takeaways.

Stock up at the artisan and gift shops, visit Saddleworth Museum & Gallery or play a round at the Saddleworth Golf Club, there's something to please everyone! There's a host of walking, cycling and hiking routes on your doorstep, including the picturesque spot of Dove Stone Reservoir and sailing club, with an easy access footpath surrounding the water, suitable for a range of abilities, and the nearby open moorland of Saddleworth Moor. Get the train from the nearby Greenfield station, and in just 20 minutes you’ll be spending a fun-filled day out visiting the bustling city of Manchester, boasting a fabulous selection of sights and attractions, including the fascinating Science and Industry Museum, the Arndale shopping centre, and a host of vibrant bars and clubs tucked away in the Northern Quarter. For a relaxing break in picturesque villages, surrounded by stunning scenery, choose Millie’s Cottage as your base for an exciting trip with your loved ones.

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.
