  • "The owners were a lovely helpful family and the cottage itself was beautifully presented, though they were aware it was missing a few key items."

    The views from the back of the cottage were stunning, overlooking the valley, and the Roaches just a stones throw away. The property is in the owner's rear garden along with another rental, and the three properties overlook each other quite a bit which we weren't expecting. Most of the outdoor areas seemed to be shared between the families, with no dog gates so other dogs came in and around our cottage, though they seemed quite well behaved. Luckily our cottage had a gravelled seating area around the side just out of view of the other buildings facing the valley, so we had a little bit of privacy. Agree with previous reviewer the ice box was frozen solid and the toilet and hot tap in bathroom need a little work, minor things. The listing could do with updating to reflect the shared spaces and immediate location a bit better, but the barn itself was lovely and cosy.

  • "Lovely cottage, very clean and well equipped, we felt the shower let the cottage down, very weak stream difficult to rinse hair adequately."

    We would have liked a bit more information in the cottage, like how to find the wifi password, and some local info re local pubs, tearoom would be useful. But generally we had a lovely stay and would recommend the cottage and would definitely come back

  • "It was a very relaxing and enjoyable weeks break and experience even though we were snowed in for a couple of days and lost power for a day and a half due to storm Arwen!"

    Fortunately we had the lovely log burner for heat and even managed to cook on it. It was a lovely touch when Adam the owner got in touch to check on us and to offer help with extra logs for the fire and help if we needed to get the car out. It was much appreciated. Tiny issues which that which marred the overall stay was the ice box needed defrosting before we could use it. The hot water tap in the bathroom needs attention as you can hardly turn it on. The shower cubicle looked very tired and in need of refurbishment, it wasn't in keeping with the rest of the beautifully finished property. This is just one of a handful of properties we would love to stay at again but maybe in the spring/summer time to take real advantage of the many walks.

    Thank you for your feedback! It's important to us and we will make improvements where we can. We hope to you receive you again in the summer/springtime, kind regards The owners Property Owner

About the location

LEEK

Buxton 12 miles; Ashbourne 15 miles.

The hillside market town of Leek, known as “The Queen of the Moorlands” is situated on the western side of The Peaks and is surrounded by lovely Moorland countryside. The town has a charming cobbled market place and there are many examples of fine Victorian architecture influenced by William Morris - a reminder of the town’s prosperity when it was renowned as a silk manufacturing centre. Today Leek offers a wide selection of shops including vast antique emporiums, a good selection of restaurants, a local park and leisure facilities and real ale pubs. Situated close to Three Shires Head, the meeting point of the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire, Leek is near to Chatsworth House, Buxton Opera House and Gawsworth Hall, plus Alton Towers is within driving distance.
