  • "We were looking for a quiet, characterful, comfortable place to take time out and that is what we got: fabulous bed, loads of hot water, powerful shower, well-equipped kitchen, a log burner, great view from the bedroom window over coffee, lots of walks within a short distance and great communication from the owners, Nigel and Abigail."

    Very much recommended.

    Thank you for your review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay in Jenny's Cottage and that you had everything that you needed. It was lovely to meet you both and we do hope you will come back and visit us again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Jenny’s cottage was delightful, cosy, clean and comfortable, it had everything one would need including a welcome pack of milk, eggs etc."

    The views were stunning and being part of a working farm was an added bonus. There are lots of hill walks on your doorstep and places to visit. A very relaxing holiday. We will return.

  • "I was shocked to see how little the cottage was."

    It was quite underwhelming downstairs as it was dark cold and basement like with non of the promised views I read about. TV was VERY small and only a two seater couch to relax on when been out all day walking. The bath was nice n big and relaxing and the bed was very comfy although very soft too. The cleanliness was not up to standard. Lots of hairs dust and spiders around the cottage. And almost all the crockery was dirty. Although a nice cottage it was definitely not worth the price we paid for it as I stay in at least 2-3 cottages per year and have much better quality and standards for the same price.

    I am terribly sorry that you feel our property was not up to your standards. The wall mounted TV/DVD is of an appropriate size for the dimensions of the room - anything larger just wouldn't be in keeping. As the cottage is only for two people, there is a good sized two seater (reclining) settee -anything larger would be overpowering. The cottage is cleaned, aired and disinfected thoroughly between guests changeover and I would like to add that prior to your stay we have always received 100% positive feedback. With reference to the spiders being present in the property, there were none when we had carried out the changeover in time for your arrival, however, it is currently within the season to be expected. Had any concerns been made to us during your stay, we would have endeavored to put them right. Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. Property Owner

    I would highly recommend. Maybe a bit more information as regards to other services the farm offers as in horse riding etc. Most probably we would re- visit.

    "Unfortunately, the Riding School that used to operate at the farm ceased trading in January. The farm is still, however, a Livery Yard and the Riding for Disabled use our facilities twice a week." Property Owner

    The accommodation was beautiful: an adorable two-storey cottage with all the mod cons and extremely helpful and friendly owner. There were also cats, dogs, horses and lambs wandering about which I particularly loved.

  • "There were wonderful views from the upstairs windows."

    It was good to have two entrances, one into the kitchen/living area, and the other directly to the bedroom/bathroom. It meant that as older people we didn't need to walk down a slope. There was a good fridge and everything you need to cook. If you like to be in the country, then this place will not disappoint you. There were stables on site, too. There is a good wood burning stove, as well as other heating.

About the location


Uppermill 3 miles; Oldham 9 miles; Huddersfield 17 miles.

Diggle 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. Diggle is a thriving little village with a good range of amenities and is well placed to explore the South Pennine region. Part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located at one end of the recently restored Standedge Canal Tunnel, Britain's longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel. In the heart of the village are the Hanging Gate pub, the Diggle Hotel pub, a newsagent, a post office/off licence and a children’s indoor Activity Centre. There is a brass band club called the Diggle Band Club which regularly hosts band contests and concerts and The Diggle Blues Festival is an annual event that takes place in June and Diggle is one of the villages that hosts the Whit Friday Band Contests. 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.
