Beautiful views

General

  • Peaceful, clean and friendly park among stunning countryside views
  • Pubs within walking distance; Manchester and Leeds within 45 minutes
  • A few hundred metres from the Pennine Way; five miles from Saddleworth

Settle down for spectacular Pennine views at Moorlands Caravan Park, a friendly and family-owned site on the edge of the Lancashire village of Denshaw.

There are fab vistas of the surrounding countryside and the nearby reservoir from this popular and well-maintained park (see pics), and although it's peacefully rural there's easy access to city sightseeing and shopping: Liverpool, Manchester, Bradford, Leeds, York and Blackpool are all within an hour and a half's drive. Closer to home, the events and shops of lively Saddeworth are five miles away, pubs are within walking distance and the famed Pennine Way is a few hundred metres from Moorlands on its 267-mile run from Edale to the Scottish Borders.

Moorlands is run by Sue and Steve, who make it their mission to ensure that guests have such a splendid stay that they return year after year. The excellent amenities include spotless showers and toilets, a launderette, a washing-up area and a parent and baby washroom; there's also access to fresh water and a chemical disposal area.

The closest pub serving food is just down the road in Denshaw; a supermarket is 10 minutes' drive away in Oldham.

Directions


If arriving by car from the M62, Junctions 22 or 21 can both be used to access the site. Head towards Saddleworth from the motorway and once one the A627 (Ripponden Road) you will see the park located in front of Dowry Reservoir on this road.

Local attractions

There’s scenic walking, mountain biking and horse riding along the Pennine Bridleway, which passes through the park, or you can strap on your boots to ramble along a section of the parallel Pennine Way. This spectacular route runs from Edale in the northern Peak District to the village of Kirk Yetholm just over the Scottish border, via the lush landscapes (and often tough hiking conditions) of the Yorkshire Dales and the Northumberland National Park.

This is top terrain for city day trips too: Manchester and Leeds are a 45-minute drive from your peaceful countryside base, Bradford 40 minutes and Liverpool and York within an hour and 20 minutes. A stick (or more) of rock as well as heady rollercoaster rides are an hour and five minutes away at Blackpool.

More hiking, biking and horse riding can be had around the Peak District, accessible 55 minutes away, and the Lake District within an hour and 25 minutes. Or stay close to base for the many events of local town Saddleworth: depending on when you're here, you could find yourself taking in the duck races, vintage cars and craft fair at the summer show, on a charity beer walk, humming along with a brass band, celebrating Yorkshire Day, taking part in a wartime reenactment, watching the Saddleworth Morris Men’s famous Rushcart procession, or sampling the region’s finest at a beer festival.

  • Eureka! The National Children's Museum (11.1 miles)
  • Halifax Ski & Snowboard Centre (11.9 miles)
