The property

Stepping Stones, a tastefully fitted, single-storey lodge in Uppermill, Saddleworth, overlooks the canal and the River Tame.

With elegant amenities, a serene location, and convenient access to the Peak District National Park, the lodge sleeps up to six guests and is a fantastic place to call home.

Stepping Stones and its neighbouring lodge, with cedar wood exteriors and sedum roofs for eco-friendly living, sit picture-perfect with gravelled off-road parking.

After a day of exploring, return to a sophisticated, open-plan living space where rustic meets contemporary; oak wooden floors lead to a well-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up home-cooked meals to be served at the spacious dining table for six.

Start the sleek woodburning stove to set the mood for a warm evening spent cuddled up on the leather sofa, catching up with loved ones or watching your favourite show on the Freeview TV.

On warm nights, slide open the patio doors for a great view from the treetop terrace; relax on the outdoor seating with a chilled glass of wine and admire Saddleworth Moor in the distance, while the canal sits below.

The shared patio is another great spot with a picnic bench and a fire pit to bring everyone together!

You'll also have access to a shared laundry room with a washer/dryer to clean any muddy clothes and get them ready for the next day.

Stepping Stones has a beautiful shower room to unwind in after the day's adventures; freshen up in the large walk-in shower while your fluffy towel toasts on the heated towel rail, as well as a demister mirror with lighting and a sensor light to get ready with ease.

White walls, a contemporary hanging unit for your possessions, and wooden bedside tables with industrial design lamps for late-night readers can be found in both the twin and double bedrooms; the sofa in the living area can be extended out to sleep two more visitors.

Book a stay at Stepping Stones and enjoy the best of country and contemporary.

About the location


Diggle 3 miles; Oldham 5 miles; Huddersfield 15 miles.

Uppermill is one of seven villages situated amongst the 18,0000 acres of moorland hills, open fields and scenic valleys that comprise the Saddlworth 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. Upper Mill is a thriving village popular with tourists with a good range of amenities including plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs, as well as a growing number of craft shops. Part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located close to the recently restored Standedge Canal Tunnel, Britain's longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel. The canal which runs through the town provides opportunities for traffic-free walks along the towpath, fishing and boating. There is one unique sport local to Uppermill called "cobbling". It involves a barrel of cobblestones, a closed road and a bag of cement - come and visit to find out more. 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’. 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.
