There is a king-size double bedroom, a further double and a twin room. There is a family bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Downstairs, there is a kitchen with dining area, a sitting room and a reading room. Outside, there is off road parking for three cars and an enclosed garden with summer house and lovely country views. With all the amenities of Leek within easy reach, and the walks, cycle trails, villages and climbing of the National Park on the doorstep, Highfield Cottage makes a lovely welcoming family base.


The cottage was excellent. In a good location with many walks, and the scenery was fantastic.

We were staying with our daughter-in-law's parents for the birth of our third grandchild. The house is 100-odd years old and built for senior estate staff for a large country house, now gone. It's been extremely well modernised - all the work we saw was of top-class quality without a trace of pretension or fussiness. Nice big kitchen for family meals and get-togethers; superb showers; 2 comfortable lounges with big tellys and DVD player. We'll want to come back if we ever have occasion to stay up there as a group again.

A beautiful house in a very good location. Lots of extras were provided and there was plenty to do in the local area. Very welcoming hosts and the garden was lovely for the children to play in and also had plenty of seating for grown ups!
Mrs Scott

Booked this cottage for a week for 2 adults and 3 children and were not disappointed. Very warm welcome with fresh flowers and a homemade sponge cake waiting :) had everything we needed especially for my 16 month old daughter, large cot was built up for our arrival which was the main positive for me as I don't like using travel cots for more than 1 night , highchair and safety gate available also . Garden and summerhouse were amazing with kids safe and happy with outdoor toys provided . Washing machine and dryer made the holiday easier with the kids. Had 2 days at Alton towers only short drive away , 1 day at Drayton manor and waterworld in Stoke. Very peaceful location and second sitting room was great for my 2 sons aged 8 and 5 . Hope to book again next year for 2 weeks as there is loads to do and I will be recommending this cottage to all my friends and family. Best self catering I have stayed in with a very pleasant owner. Thank you for making our holiday a great experience.

Beautiful house with excellent facilities, lovely garden to relax in, in peaceful surroundings. It was a lovely touch that there were board games and garden games for a good age range, as well as a wide selection of books. Monica has provided all the comforts of home in the house and the welcome pack of essentials and some local treats was very much enjoyed. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with views of the surrounding countryside. The bathroom is beautifully decorated and has a large walk in shower as well as a bath. The owner is at present installing a downstairs shower room which I am sure will be as well appointed as the current family bathroom. We enjoyed visiting Matlock Bath, Chatsworth area and the Heights of Abraham but the highlight of our visit was Trentham Monkey Forest where you can wader with the 140 monkeys that roam free. We had a lovely fish and chip supper at "George's" in Belper very reasonably priced and included bread and butter and a drink a firm favourite will all of our party.
