Description

On the edge of the Peak District National Park this attractive converted former dairy can be found in the pretty Saddleworth village of Delph. Set within the courtyard of the owners’ farmhouse, the cottage has been converted retaining many original beams and is furnished and equipped to a good standard throughout.
Saddleworth lies in the West Riding of Yorkshire and covers over 18,000 acres, of which much is open land with breathtaking views. It’s made up of a collection of villages each with their own strong identity, fabulous real ale pubs and access to the moors. Delph village is around a 10 minute walk from the property and enjoys a range of local shops, pubs and restaurants; and just a mile from the property is the Pennine Way with 268 miles of the finest upland walking in England.
In around a 10-minute drive you can reach the wonderful Yorkshire village of Marsden home to a range of attractions including the National Trust Marsden Moor Estate and the Standedge Tunnel Visitors Centre. Within ½ hours drive you can reach Holmfirth, renowned as the home of ‘Last of the Summer Wine’, and within an hour you have the market towns of Halifax and Huddersfield, or the bright lights and attractions in the cities of Manchester and Leeds. Shops, pubs and restaurants ½ mile.

About the local area

Anne, Charlotte and Emily Bronte wrote some of the most famous novels in the English language. Today, the moors and hills that inspired The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights draw many seeking to explore the dramatic landscape of Bronte Country and the South Pennine hills.

This is perfect walking country, whether you prefer a planned route to see the sights or a slow wander in the hope of discovering unexpected treasures.

You can visit the ruined farmhouse of Top Withens, on which Emily based the Earnshaw home of Wuthering Heights and the Bronte Waterfalls, a place the sisters visited often for peace, reflection and creative inspiration.

The moors are also home to a number of fascinating towns and villages. Haworth is a favourite and the house in which the Bronte family lived is now the Bronte Parsonage Museum.

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway runs through Bronte country from bustling Keighley to the village of Oxenhope. There's a stop at Haworth and another at Oakworth, the station used for filming the classic movie, The Railway Children.

Bronte Country is much more than a day-trip and there's no better way to steep yourself in this ancient land of mystery and romance than to stay in a solid moorland cottage.

Whether you prefer a town location or a more remote and rural spot, it's great to know that a day on the moors is guaranteed to end in a hot meal, a relaxing bath and a comfy bed.
