  • "Lovely cottage."

    Just perfect for a few relaxing days away to switch off and unwind. Comfy bed. Great sofa. And the smart TVs were a plus.

  • "Stunning! Beautiful cottage and location."

    Clean, cosy, everything you could want for a few days away. Didn’t want to leave, already looking at dates to return. Host had gone the extra mile to make you feel welcome on arrival - thank you so much.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a great location."

    The cottage had everything we needed and we would definitely go back. Only but of advice would be to install a roof over the hot tub for when it’s raining! We ended up sitting in it in our wooly hats so our hair didn’t get wet when it was raining.

  • "We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Clock Cottage."

    The place itself had everything we needed from tea and coffee to the hot tub. The beds were really comfortable and we slept well. Richard the owner introduced himself in person to check we were ok as we had a small issue with the heating (easily fixed) and he brought us biscuits and Prosecco. We were four ladies celebrating two of us turning 50 and we had a good relaxing time. Thanks Richard for letting us stay in your beautiful place.

    The welcome gifts and card were a lovely touch too. The sitting room and kitchen were very cosy. However, my partner found the dips in the bed made his back uncomfortable when sleeping. When we showered water seemed to come through into the kitchen.

  • "We stayed for 4 days and was not happy at all."

    Cottage was clean but, very uncomfortable the settee was dirty and it was like sitting on the floor the underneath had no support. Had to double up cushions to get a bit of comfort. T.V reception was appalling not watchable. Complained to onsight owner and he wasn't, either willing or able to sort it until after we'd left he said. I could see the aerial on roof had moved round. He blamed it on weather and the reception, because of his trees, in the area. We have had wonderful holidays with Sykes for a number of years now and have never had cause for complaint. Most disappointed we wasted our money.

    I have checked the TV reception, it is fine, I'm sorry the weather was poor for your stay.All the TVs can be viewed via the internet.I am sorry you felt the settee was dirty I will get this cleaned, I am sorry you did not find the facilities and accuracy of listing to your standards when other guests do. Best wishes. Property Owner

  • "A lovely, warm and cosy cottage."

    Good location and a private hot tub to return to and relax in. Comfortable beds. Good pub nearby. Possibly could do with more than 2 plastic wine glasses for use in the tub (for a party of 4 adults) and more than 4 tea mugs since there was hardly any washing up liquid and 2 dishwasher tabs for 3 nights. But thanks for the arrival gift. Great joining instructions and would definitely recommend.

  • "A lovely stay in an interesting cottage (would be nice to have some information about the history of the cottage to read during the stay)."

    Generally very comfortable and the hot tub was really lovely with great views. Couple of minor niggles, firstly the two views of the outside of the cottage (showing the clock face) which are used as the main advertisements for the cottage, are views you will never see as there is no access to that side of the house which is the owners side (I believe you can make arrangements to access for a photo), I feel this is quite misleading. Views from the sitting room are of both your own car in the parking area and the owners cars and bins. Secondary the master bed is a memory foam mattress which unlike other visitors we found very uncomfortable and aggravated backache, if you suffer similarly I’d recommend sleeping in the second bedroom. Views from the hot tub and the master bedroom are beautiful and there are many lovely walks and visits to do in the area. Highly recommend Dovestone reservoir and we also enjoyed a trip to Jodrell Bank (a little further away) and the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. Kitchen was easy to use (couldn’t find cooker manual despite manuals for most other things) but could do with basic condiments in stock and the table was very small (uncomfortably so for more than two people). Overall a nice stay in a very peaceful pretty area.

    The balance of having a large city and a national park nearby is amazing for us, we like to stay in tranquil locations and explore the countryside but also like the convenience of being near a large town (in this case of course, the massive Manchester) so location was perfect for us. The cottage itself also has a perfect balance of cozy and modern, there was nothing we felt we needed but didn't have, hot tub was lovely. Will definitely be coming back!

    The hot tub was amazing, perhaps one of the best we’ve been in!!! The beds were very comfortable and it was a good base to explore the Peak District and surrounding areas of Manchester. It was extremely easy to get a tram from Oldham to Manchester and cheap too (£7.50 return for a travel card for a family of 4) . We visited 2 National trust properties Lyme and Dunham Massey which were both incredible. The cottage would be even better if it had comfortable seating for 4 people as one of us had to sit on a hard chair in the evening!!!!

    The weather was not good to us that week but the cottage is so welcoming and homely we still enjoyed our holiday. The double bed is extremely comfortable. Loved having a bath especially in our room. So many places are taking baths out and just having showers. The kitchen is perfectly equipped to cook. We watched plenty of films on Netflix iPlayer and Itvhub. You need your own sign ins. The hot tub is great and secluded from sight. The cottage was decorated lovely and was beautifully clean. We visited Dovestone reservoir which is really great. Climbed to the top of the hills and the views were spectacular.

Prepare for a day ahead in the sleek shower room, waking up with a refreshing soak in the large walk-in shower before being welcomed by a toasty towel from the heated rail.

Enjoy a canal side walk and visit the cafes, pubs and award winning ice cream parlour in picturesque Uppermill, and stock up on essentials for your self-catered stay at one of the stores in the local surrounding villages at Grotton, Greenfield, Mossley or Lees to name a few.

Break away for a day of adventure at one of the nearby attractions on the way to the stunning Peak District National Park, taking a challenging hike up Tandle Hill View Point or over to Holmfirth for a peaceful walk along Kirklees Way.

About the location


Huddersfield 13.8 miles; Manchester 13.9 miles; Buxton 26.9 miles.

Resting in between the bustling market town of Huddersfield and the thriving city of Manchester, is the civil parish of Saddleworth, comprising of several villages and hamlets, covering a northern area of the Peak District National Park. Historically, Saddleworth has its roots in the textile industry, becoming a centre for cotton spinning and weaving after the Industrial Revolution, with one of its most notable structures, the Saddleworth Viaduct, built to help the transport of goods to major cities. Nowadays, you can enjoy the lovely villages which are scattered amongst rural countryside, with ten reservoirs to its name and an excellent 18-hole golf course at Saddleworth Golf Club. Delight in walks around Dovestone Reservoir, where an easy access path guides you along the waters, stopping on the way at Chew Brook to explore the rocks and dip your toes in the running stream, with two further reservoirs, Greenfield and Yeoman Hay, to explore you can extend your walk however much you like. As well as wildlife spotting, horse riding, climbing and its own sailing club here too, you are sure to find something for every taste. Head into the heart of the Peaks and incorporate Howden Dam into a ramble, or get to know the luscious landscape of Snake Woodland. Take a day trip into Manchester, home of the Palace Theatre, the National Football Museum, and the Manchester Art Gallery, just some of the wonderful places you can enjoy while you visit, amidst the wide array of astounding restaurants and cafés here too. From quaint villages, to vast countryside, to lively towns, you are within reach of it all when enjoying a fabulous stay in Saddleworth.
