Roundhill Farm



Roundhill Farm is well served with local amenities, schools, recreational facilities and shops. Oldham (2 miles away) offers a range of stores, including all the major supermarkets which also deliver to this area (Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Iceland). Manchester and Leeds, with the cities' amazing selection of stores, are both within easy reach for a day's shopping, as is the Trafford Centre, 30 minutes away by road.  There is an excellent choice of state and independent primary and secondary schools within the area, with public transport links from Waterhead, half a mile from Roundhill Farm.

Roundhill Farm is a short distance from the picturesque and historic Saddleworth villages of Delph, Denshaw, Dobcross, Diggle, Grasscroft, Greenfield and Uppermill, and these offer a wide range of recreational opportunities including museums, band contests, music and sports facilities as well as parks and miles of unspoilt countryside walks and outriding on quiet lanes.

The area also boasts the recently renovated Huddersfield Narrow Canal, which runs from Manchester through the Ashton Basin and on to Huddersfield through dramatic and spectacular scenery.

Strinesdale Country Park - a spectacular, 50-acre countryside area - borders on the property and is within easy and safe walking distance of the farm and, again, offers miles of walking and riding. The area is rich in wildlife (a protected Wildlife Area has been set aside within the Country Park), and Roundhill’s garden alone is home to at least 20 species of bird, many of which nest in the garden and woodland within Roundhill's grounds (including the swallows, which nest in the stables every year).  Roe deer are frequent visitors to our fields, but you need to be up early to spot them!

Roundhill Farm is well served by an excellent choice of both primary and secondary state and independent schools. In September 2012 the Waterhead Academy for 11-16 year-olds will open its doors not only to pupils but to the wider community in terms of adult education, out-of-hours courses and sports facilities - a real benefit to the local community, and within easy walking distance from Roundhill Farm.
Mains electricity, mains water and a private septic tank. BT telephone and broadband services and excellent mobile phone reception.
The house is fully central heated via a Rayburn oil-fired range cooker, which also supplies hot water and cooking. The house is fully cavity wall insulated, double glazing is installed throughout and the property is loft and underfloor insulated.

As at 29 September 2008.  Full details are available from our agents, Rural Scene. Further energy-saving measures have been put in place since the Energy Performance Rating was carried out.


The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all wayleaves, easements and rights of way, declared and undeclared. There are two rights of way on the property, but these are distant from the curtilage. Following the decommissioning of Strinesdale reservoirs to make way for Strinesdale Country Park, which has created miles of public rights of way, these have fallen into disuse (although still legally in effect) and pose no inconvenience to the property.
All measurements given are approximate and for guidance only, with a six-inch tolerance allowed. Prospective purchasers are advised to take their own measurements, especially when ordering furnishings or furniture or other equipment.
Roundhill Farm is freehold, with vacant possession on completion, by arrangement.
