  • "Highfield House is an amazing place to stay."

    It is beautifully furnished and decorated and has everything you could need. We didn’t want to leave! The accommodation made our special family birthday celebration magical. Karen and Andy are fantastic hosts, checking to see that we were settling in ok and Andy very kindly came to ‘dig us out’ after the snowfall we had. Many thanks for the extra treats left for us too. We will certainly be returning and will recommend Highfield House to family and friends. Angela and Kevin

  • "We really loved staying at Highfield House - it's the perfect home for a get away."

    Located at the edge of the Peak District we had access to Leek and lovely walks. Despite the weather we enjoyed our stay around the fireplace and the entertainment facilities. The kitchen was very well equipped and we could cater easily for the whole family. Everything was very clean and had a lovely and homely finish. And to find a welcome pack (biscuits for the kids, prosecco for the grwon ups) was a nice touch too. Thank you again for everything!

    Thank you Christian for the great feedback, so glad you all had a lovely time. Hope to welcome you back another time. Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Highfield House far exceeded our expectations."

    The house is stunning ... a really beautiful, family home. The decor and furnishings are very high end, as are the many facilities, gadgets and appliances the house has to offer. The attention to detail is amazing, and nothing has been overlooked. We literally had everything we needed during our time there ... except perhaps the weather! But the house was so snug, cozy and well equipped, even that didn't matter. We loved the nearby town of Leek, along with many other different places to visit within very easy reach. I would not hesitate to recommend Highfield House to any prospective visitor. When our stay was over, we didn’t want to leave! And we simply can't wait to go back!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review! So happy you enjoyed Highfield House and the surrounding area. Hoping to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "We spent a wonderful week at Highfield House with the family."

    We all immediately fell in love with this magnificent house. It is magnificently restored, tastefully, generously and comfortably furnished. The mix of country style and modern furnishings is lovely and absolutely stylish. The garden and the outdoor area are also magnificent. In addition, it is nestled in a fantastically beautiful landscape and not far from attractive shopping facilities. We can recommend it wholeheartedly!

    Thank you so much Florian for your lovely feedback. So happy you chose Highfield House for your visit to the UK and that you had such a great time here. Welcome back any time. Property Owner

The property

Leek 2.6 miles.

Resting rurally in Longsdon, a Staffordshire village near the bustling town of Leek is Highfield House, a fabulous four-bedroom dwelling.

Enveloped by breath-taking countryside and a short journey away from the Peak District National Park and Tittesworth reservoir which offers a range of water sports and walking trails.

Highfield House offers eight guests flexible sleeping arrangements, a gated garden, and a charming interior, the property provides the ideal base for a group celebration.

Park up on the private driveway before entering Highfield House, firstly reaching the homely snug, complete with a rustling woodburning stove, plush seating, and a Smart TV.

Further relaxation can take place in the sitting room, featuring a large corner sofa, Smart TV, and PlayStation, before locating the well-equipped kitchen/dining, housing a range of appliances to ease your self-catered stay; you'll also find a washing machine in the utility, helping you keep on top of your holiday clothes, and a formal dining room to enjoy meals from.

Watch the sun set over the Staffordshire hills from the enclosed patio, before catching some rest in one of four bedrooms, all well-presented and offering ample storage; select between a king-size with en-suite, a further 2 doubles, and a twin with 3"4 bed in the same room, all serviced by a spacious bathroom.

Come morning, begin your exploration in the local area, where you'll find a host of pubs and eateries, dotted across the canal, ahead of touring some of the surrounding beauty spots, including Ladderedge Country Park, Rudyard Lake, Cheddleton Flint Mill, and RSPB Coombes Valley.

Travelling towards the popular attraction of Alton Towers, stop off at both the Peak Wildlife Park and Kingsley Bird & Falconry Centre, offering immersive experiences, perfect for animal lovers.

Heading through the national park, discover an abundance of breath-taking vistas, possible to enjoy from The Roaches and Thor's Cave, before continuing to Buxton and its array of attractions, including Poole's Cavern, Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, The Pavilion Gardens, a hub of botanical blooms, and the Buxton Visitor Centre & The Buxton Crescent Experience.

Experience all of this by booking Highfield House.
