Pots & Pans Cottage is a two-bedroomed traditional 18th Century Weavers cottage located in a peaceful and private hamlet a few minutes walk from the centre of Uppermill, in the heart of beautiful Saddleworth. The cottage is big enough to accommodate four adults, although as we are situated in a quiet and close-knit community we don’t accept bookings for parties. Dogs are more than welcome to come and stay, and Saddleworth is the perfect place to bring your dog on holiday. The minimum number of nights that can be booked is two, and discounts are offered for longer-term stays. Links to information about the cottage, Uppermill, Saddleworth, and the surrounding area can be found in the menu bar at the top of the page.

COVID Update (20th October 2020)

Saddleworth is within Greater Manchester and from 12.01am on Friday 23rd October it will be under Tier 3 (Very High Level) restrictions as classified by the Government’s new rules.

  • The new rules state that you should try to avoid travelling outside the very high alert level area you are in or entering a very high alert level area…
  • You should avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK if you are resident in a very high alert level area, or avoid staying overnight in a very high alert level area if you are resident elsewhere.

These restrictions mean that unless you are already living in the Greater Manchester area, you cannot stay at Pots & Pans Cottage in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. With this in mind we have closed the bookings diary for the rest of the year or at least until the situation changes.

Any bookings that have to be cancelled (either by us or by guests) due to the move into Tier Three or otherwise will get a full refund, regardless of the notice given.

If you are living in Greater Manchester and desperate for a Tier 3 holiday in Saddleworth please get in touch to discuss if we can accomodate you within the rules of the restrictions.

If you would like to book for a specific date in 2021 please get in touch to discuss availability, assuming some form of ‘normality’ has been resumed by then. We are fully booked for December 2020, and we are already fully booked for YANKS, Whit Friday and Rushcart weekends in 2021.
