“Peaceful and cosy secret place”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Karen and Les are very welcoming whilst still giving you the space you need to relax. The cottage was spotless, cosy and warm and we had instant satisfaction from putting our bags down to leaving. We would absolutely recommend this place for those people wishing for a home away from home. Lovely log fire and a cute patio to sit out in. Nice and hot powerful showers and comfy bed. We hope to visit again soon! Stacy-Anne

Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We spent a relaxing few days at this beautiful accommodation. The cottage was well equipped and in a lovely location with great views over the countryside. The bed was really comfortable and an added plus was the Sky+ television. The cottage is in a good location for visits to Manchester or the Yorkshire moors.Our host, Les, was very welcoming and helpful. We would certainly recommend a stay here.

“Perfect getaway!!!!!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Ive recently stayed in standedge foot cottage and it was just what me and my partner where after some quiet and peaceful time away but close to local amenities for the days we wanted to explore. The cottage is exactly this! close to manchester Liverpool and chester and with easy access to the m62 you have plenty of choice of other days out. The cottage itself feels like a home away from home and has everything you need especially the chocolates and biscuits on arrival :) set in beautiful coutryside with Saddleworth surrounding you was a pleasure to open the curtain in the morning to take it all in! Les and his partner where extremely helpful and where right next door if you ever needed anything. Defiantly recommend this cottage and look forward to going back sometime in the future :) :) :).

“Superb Stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I am originally from the Saddeworth area and this was my first trip back, my daughters first visit to England. Les and Karen could not have made us feel more welcome, and the cottage provided a fantastic home away from home.

The cottage was clean and very nicely furnished. It featured everything we could want, a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room with a nice TV, full Sky package and even a PS3.

I have family down in the villages, so being local was something I really wanted in looking for a holiday home. The cottage is 5 minutes away from the Uppermill in the car, and meant we could get down to see everyone but still have our own space and have it feel like a holiday. Being so centrally located in the UK and with easy access to the motorways we managed to see Edinburgh, Stonehenge and York in our two weeks.

Karen and Les were the nicest of hosts, friendly and welcoming and we could not have wanted a more perfect home while on holiday. It's the first place we'll be trying to book when we return (hopefully next year)
