Saddleworth Attractions

Where to Go and What to Do

Things to do in and around the beautiful district of Saddleworth

Well-i-Hole Farm is situated in Greenfield, Saddleworth, to the north-east of Oldham. Nestled in the rugged picturesque beauty that forms the Saddleworth Moors and district, there are plenty of wonderful and interesting places to explore.

Villages with Character

There are great walks to the beautiful vibrant town of Uppermill, which has some excellent cafés, bars and independent local shops. The nearby Dove Stone Reservoir is a National Park with picturesque walks, sailing, horse riding and more.

Clustered nearby are the quaint Saddleworth villages of Greenfield, Delph, Diggle and Dobcross, each worth exploring in its own right.

Closer to home there is fly fishing in our very own river, running right along the edge of the campsite.

Festivals and Shows

Saddleworth is famous for its band contests, festivals and shows, including the Whit Friday Brass Band Contests in late May or June and the Rushcart Festival weekend at the end of August. These are a great attraction and people come from far and wide to take part.

Expand your Horizons

Once you've taken a few short walks to the local pubs and enjoyed their gastronomic delights, you can explore further afield from Greenfield Railway Station. Trains run west directly into Manchester with all its shops, museums and libraries and much more! Follow the east line to encounter some of the great towns of West Yorkshire: Halifax, York and Leeds, to mention just three.
