Visit the Moorcock
We are nestled snugly in the South Pennines, on the road to Blackstone Edge. If you're looking for places to stay in the Rochdale, Oldham, Manchester or Middleton, you'll get a warm reception at the Moorcock Inn. We're also just the other side of the hill from Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, Todmorden and Hebden Bridge.
