Cottages in Littleborough, Nr. Rochdale, Lancashire, England - Peaceful And Secluded Location
The cottages were converted from an original barn/shippon and our first cottage which sleeps 2 guests was opened in September 2010. The second, larger cottage was completed in March 2011. The cottages both benefit from underfloor heating throughout provided by renewable Groundsource Heating making them highly energy efficient. For those who enjoy outdoor activities this is the perfect location, with many walking routes from short strolls to full day hikes leading straight from the door. The Pennine Way and the Pennine Bridleway are close by and we overlook Hollingworth Lake with its Watersport Activity Centre and Whittaker Golf Club.

About the Owner
I am a 50 something part time farmer and odd job around the place person.
I live in the farmhouse along with my husband and sons; my mum lives next door. We are usually around the farm have a very good local knowledge and are happy to offer advice if required.
The farm is a working farm, with a small flock of sheep and two sheepdogs. It is still very much a family affair; my mum likes to take the dogs out in the morning for a little walk, my husband is involved with the farm and the cottages (he does the tractor driving/fixing and technical stuff). My sons are around from time to time..
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely cosy cottage with all its comfort and excellent quality. Thanks a lot for your hospitality and for being so helpful. We don't regret a single moment of our stay - the walks in the countryside, the trips to nearby villages and places of interest, the pubs.... Just a superb start to our holidays in England. (Guests from Germany)
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cottage 1. Fantastic walks with amazing views, we would definitely recommend. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. We will come back as 5 days was not enough. (Guests from Somerset)
