Dining kitchen at Pots and Pans Holiday Cottage, Uppermill, Saddleworth

The Kitchen

The Kitchen at Pots & Pans Cottage is the heart of the cottage that hosts a cosy dining area and a fabulous six-hob gas-fired range with two electric ovens.

One of our recent Airbnb guests said we had an “excellent kitchen with the best oven you will ever find.” Another guest said, “the large kitchen area was great for chatting, cooking and playing games”. Both guests gave us a five-star rating!

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials including a large SMEG fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and DAB radio/ Bluetooth speaker. There is also everything else you could ever need from pots and pans and lemon squeezer to gingerbread men cutters and knife sharpener.

The kitchen has open beams and original feature walls. The unique floor tiles were hand-made in Cambodia by a family of artisanal terracotta makers. Each tile is individually crafted and then some are decorated with imprints of flowers and plants from the family garden, you can even spot tiles that the family dog and chickens have run across. They are beautifully made and fit wonderfully in the kitchen decorated with art and postcards from Myanmar.

We were approached in early 2018 by a company who’d seen pictures of our kitchen on Airbnb. They were impressed with what they saw and wanted to film a breakfast cereal advert in the kitchen at Pots & Pans Cottage! Sadly we were fully booked up during the dates when they wanted to shoot the advert so we couldn’t accommodate them at the time. Maybe next time… assuming we aren’t booked up that is!
