Offering two bedroomed accommodation, with a double and twin room on the first floor, along with a family sized bathroom with a bath and "over the bath" Grohe shower.
Downstairs, there is living space with kitchen and dining areas and a seating area with a large sofa and a traditional wood burning stove. There is a large glazed window offering breathtaking views South down and across the valley, over open fields. Underfloor heating provides a comfortable environment in which to sit and relax; maybe watching the flat screen TV/DVD after a long day out exploring the area.
Adjacent to Jim's Barn is Nell's Cottage. This cottage is also two bedroom, but sleeps three in a King Size room and a single room. Refurbished to the same high standards, Nell's Cottage has fantastic South facing views down the valley across open fields and also has a small walled garden and it's own washing machine.

Diggle House Farm has been in the same family ownership for five generations. Two old barns and a Cottage have been developed to a very high standard (4*) for up to 9 self-catering guests. Offering great flexibility to accommodate larger families, grandparents or carers, the cottages can be rented as a whole with five bedrooms (Master King Size and en-suite) or the cottages can be split into completely separate one and two bedroom cottages, sleeping two, three and four respectively. Each cottage has it's own kitchen, bathroom, living and dining areas and the double adjoining doors connecting Jim's Barn and Jenny's Cottage are soundproofed offering complete separation.
Nell's Cottage is a separate self contained two bed cottage and has all the same facilities as Jim's Barn and Jenny's Cottage but in addition has it''s own South facing walled garden, (a real sun trap on a sunny day!)
The farm is located approximately one mile from the village of Diggle, which has two pubs, a newsagents, Post Office and village shop. There is a Band Club and a Children’s Activity Centre, along with three children’s parks, a country park, famous Canal Tunnel and acres and acres of green belt land with walks, cycling and bridleways.

My wife and I live in Diggle village, one mile away from our holiday cottages. The cottages are located on our farm, which has been in our family for five generations, and my sister and her family still live in the farmhouse and run a Riding School (www.saddleworthstables.co.uk).

In addition there are: Fantastic walks, cycling or horse rides, sailing, golf, canal festivals, industrial heritage, Pennine architecture, real ales, live music, great food, parks for the kids.
Last of the Summer Wine country is only 20 minutes away.
All this and only 45 minutes away are Manchester and Leeds, with all their cosmopolitan offerings of theatre, shopping and galleries.

Nigel Shaw purchased this cottage in 1933
Diggle House Farm is in a fantastic hilltop location, overlooking the valley and village of Diggle. It is approximately one mile from the village centre, making it a nice walk, or only a couple of minutes in the car.
The farm accesses bridlepaths and walks from the farm gate and, whichever way you set off in, you will enjoy absolutely fabulous views and plenty of fresh air!
Away from crowds and hustle and bustle, our farm offers a tranquil relaxing retreat.
We are close enough to join in all the fun though - there are so many local festivals and events (some quite quirky!)
There are plenty of places to eat out, with a vast selection of choices, whether it is traditional fayre, Chinese, Indian, Italian - something for every taste.
Eco Friendly: The cottages are very well insulated, are very snug and have a number of green technologies built into them:
A Ground Source Heat Pump takes the heat out of the ground to produce all the heating and hot water.
Rainwater is captured and recycled.
Underfloor heating creates an environment that is clean and pleasant. (It is especially good for asthmatics)
We have a number of solar PV arrays on the farm, generating up to 18.5kWh of "clean" electricity!
We have chosen LED lighting wherever possible, with "traditional" energy efficient bulbs as our second choice.
By staying at Diggle House Farm, you will be "doing your bit" for the environment!
We are also located with the local Horse Riding School - it couldn't be any more convenient to have a ride whilst staying here. From complete novice to experienced rider, everyone is catered for: www.saddleworthstables.co.uk.
We spent a week at Jim's Barn and Jenny's Cottage at Diggle House Farm. It was the ideal location for a 'Roots' tour of the area. We brought my parents, 87yrs and 77yrs to revisit their childhood haunts and meet relations. The cottages were perfect with interlocking doors so we could easily care for my parents. From start to finish we felt welcome and valued by Nigel and Abigail,with a welcome pack (including fresh farm eggs) for us after the long journey by boat from Ireland. The views from the cottages were a joy to wake up to each morning. We highly recommend the place.
