Lovely peaceful and quiet place, well equipped.. Owners were very friendly.

We had a lovely week despite a lot of rain and wind.. I couldn't fault the cottage and the views. The only thing I would draw attention to is the parking between two muck heaps. I didn't bother us because we are used to the outdoors, but I think some people would not enjoy the smells.

We are a little reluctant to write this review as we absolutely love Diggle House Farm and we don’t want word to get out as to how special it really is! We are repeat visitors to the cottage, staying as one of their first customers when it opened and again for two weeks in July 2018. Jim's Barn is peaceful surroundings and stunning views and a very warm welcome basket with fresh eggs from the farm. Jim's Barn is a comfortable, cozy cottage with washing machine/dryer facilities across the yard and it really does have everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The beauty of the surroundings is breathtaking and yet it is a working farm and stables, perfect for animal lovers. It is close to wonderful pubs and local village (and Grandpa Green's Ice Cream), and there is a Tesco Superstore ten minutes drive away in Greenfield. Nigel and Abigail have done a wonderful job making the experience eco-friendly while providing all the mod cons anyone could desire. We cannot recommend Jim's Barn enough.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location.. The cottage is well equipped and restored to a really high standard. We had a really good nights sleep in the very comfortable beds.The owner was really helpful, even bringing more wood for the fire when the weather turned cold. Thanks very much would definitely visit again.

We try to get back to the Saddleworth area every three years and would love to stay at Jim's Barn again.. The narrow road to Jim's was not a problem for us because we had spent the previous six weeks driving around country areas of Scotland, Wales and Ireland, however some drivers might be put off by it. Because the farm also has stables and there is a shooting range further on up the road meant that there was more traffic on the track with limited passing areas. The view is magnificent, we love the farm environment, and have a special love for the Saddleworth area. Thank you.

The cottage was perfect for what I wanted on this trip.. I was met by the owner upon arrival and made to feel very welcome. All in all a fabulous week and I will seriously consider a return trip in the summer.

Jim's Barn was located in a stunning setting and the house had everything we needed. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. It was lovely to stay in such a nice environment.

The cottage was very professionally managed but what made it exceptional were the personal touches. Our stay felt personal, that we weren't just a source of income but that the owners were genuinely interested that we had a good experience. In addition to a brilliantly refurbished cottage the views were breath taking.

The views were beautiful and the peace was amazing. The family and staff were all friendly. The area has plenty to do and we would return. It was exceptionally wonderful as it was where I lived when I was 6. We brought my mother who has dementia and it brought back lots of memories.

Absolutely brilliant place - a home from home. All the little extras in the barn made it very special for the adults and children alike. Spotless, immaculate and very tasteful décor. Very, very well equipped dwelling. The owners were all very friendly. My little boy loved the toy tractor and the small farm yard. Will definitely visit again, can not fault it. Highly recommend to anyone. Lovely setting.
