Take A Break From City Life In A Tiny Cabin Near Manchester With Incredible Views

Nothing beats a staycation when the city gets too much…

Especially when it’s close by to town with incredible views. Us worker bees never hit the stop button, so once in a while, it’s a nice treat to dial it down and pamper ourselves – and we’ve found the perfect spot!

Pretty enough to be plastered on a postcard, this tiny, secluded cabin is nestled high in the Saddleworth Hills in the Oldham village of Diggle. It’s the perfect bolthole for city dwellers looking to avoid the rest of civilisation, with just enough space to cosy up with your favourite person. The cabin features glass panelling the whole way round, giving 360 views of the 30-acre private woodland area and sights of the picturesque Pennine Hills.

The cosy hideaway has all the essentials you need to survive for your woodland staycation, including a bed that converts into a sofa, a small kitchenette area with cooking appliances, and a small bathroom suite with a modern shower. The inside decor has a cosy woodland feel to it, with homely finishes and touches of faux fur to help keep you warm in the winter.

Elsewhere outside, guests can take in the views of the Saddleworth Hills and valley while relaxing with a glass of vino on the decking, which is kitted out with a chiminea and a BBQ. Wildlife fans can also enjoy a visit from Tarquin the Cock who frequents the area, as well as horses, ducks and sheep who reside nearby. How very wholesome.

The cabin is nearby to idyllic villages such as Uppermill, Diggle, Dobcross and Delph where visitors can head out to explore, with the Peak District close by to uncover. With a ton of walking trails to discover, it makes for a truly relaxing, country getaway. The property is owned by a nearby farming family, who provide guests with a continental breakfast as part of their stay, with fresh milk from their local dairy farm, eggs from their very own flock of chickens and hot beverages to start the day with.
