    “Perfect Retreat”

    We are a little reluctant to write this review as we absolutely love Diggle House Farm and we don’t want word to get out as to how special it really is! We are repeat visitors to the cottage, staying as one of their first customers when it opened and again for two weeks in July 2018 ...

    We are a little reluctant to write this review as we absolutely love Diggle House Farm and we don’t want word to get out as to how special it really is! We are repeat visitors to the cottage, staying as one of their first customers when it opened and again for two weeks in July 2018. Jim's Barn is peaceful surroundings and stunning views and a very warm welcome basket with fresh eggs from the farm. Jim's Barn is a comfortable, cozy cottage with washing machine/dryer facilities across the yard and it really does have everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The beauty of the surroundings is breathtaking and yet it is a working farm and stables, perfect for animal lovers. It is close to wonderful pubs and local village (and Grandpa Green's Ice Cream), and there is a Tesco Superstore ten minutes drive away in Greenfield. Nigel and Abigail have done a wonderful job making the experience eco-friendly while providing all the mod cons anyone could desire. We cannot recommend Jim's Barn enough.

Diggle House Farm Cottages

These delightful, stone-built barn conversion cottages are located on a high promontory, in beautiful rolling countryside near the village of Diggle in the heart of Saddleworth, on the edge of the Peak District. These Saddleworth cottages have been thoughtfully converted to provide excellent eco-friendly facilities, yet they still retain the character and charm of the original dwellings and boast breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. This is a wonderful opportunity to stay in traditional accommodation on a working farm, but also enjoy the home comforts of underfloor heating, solar electricity, rainwater harvesting and hot water supplied from pipes laid within the ground. Modern styling and contemporary furnishings are evident throughout these Diggle cottages which feature open plan living areas with a modern kitchen and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Upstairs, the cottages feature a modern bathroom and bedrooms with lovely views of the nearby fells. Nearby, Diggle has two traditional pubs, a newsagent, Post Office and a popular chip shop. There is a network of excellent walks, bridleways and cycle routes along valleys or up to the moors that offer glorious views from the cottage, plus other picturesque Saddleworth villages are short drives away. A scenic journey across the moors will bring you to the tourist locations of Hebden Bridge, Haworth, Marsden, Meltham and Holmfirth. Saddleworth and the surrounding areas boast a wide selection of gastropubs and restaurants, plus there is a variety of individual food and farm shops and supermarkets all around. Two lovely Saddleworth cottages whatever the time of year.

About the location

DIGGLE

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.
