    We stayed for 2 nights on the 17th of June, What an amazing cottage, everything oozed quality and every little detail was thought off, the peace and quiet was what we wanted and it’s exactly what we got, Alan and Holly were so lovely, as was Nell (the dog) and tiger (the cat), we had a cpl of lovely conversations with them which was our choice they didn’t bother us at all but we’re always around Incase you needed anything, the hot tub was fab and the views were lovely, highly recommend and when we get the chance we will be back, thanks for a lovely stay

  • "We loved our stay at the cottage."

    It was a clean and well kept place and we received a welcome basket on arrival. The hot tub was a lovely addition which we utilised almost every night. It was a beautiful location with the fields in front. Only thing we didn't anticipate was the building works right outside the house but these were fairly quiet so it wasn't a disturbance. All the appliances were easy to use and we had a good range of apps on the TV. It was also nicely decorated. We loved our stay here and hope to return. Alan was also a great host when we saw him and was very welcoming.

    At the time it was for my husbands 70th birthday (he will be 72 next week). We had the most fabulous weather the whole time. The scenery is stunning and we felt that we had been away for ages. We will definitely return

    A real home from home with everything you need and more with lots of lovely small touches. Kitchen is great to cook in and the sonos is brilliant. We had the best week full of stunning hikes, fizz in the hot tub and relaxing with the log burner on. Thank you!

  • "Absolutely amazing stay, couldn't fault it!"

    Particularly loved the little additions like the basket with fresh eggs and bread, and all the crockery and utensils you could need. The under floor heating was an amazing luxury and we loved the log burner. The big bath was so relaxing and the hot tub was great after a long day walking. We'd love to return!

    The accommodation was superb with every last detail thought of. The hot tub was a bonus to completely relax after a day walking or just chilling. We will definitely be returning and hopefully hiring all of the cottages for the whole family.

    You really couldn't ask any more of the cottage, it's cleanliness, the facilities, the location, the owners and the communication. The welcome that we received really made this special. We didn't want to leave and would love to return.

    The location is perfect, remote enough to feel out of the way but everything you need either a small walk away or if you wanted to visit neighbouring towns they are only a short drive away. The hot tub was the perfect end to a day of walking , I didn’t want to come home!

    All facilities 5* with great attention to detail. Lovely views from the hot tub enhanced by stunning weather all week. We felt at home from the moment we unpacked. Bonus of 2 bathrooms and icing on the cake was the 2 pouffees to relieve my back issues when relaxing in the evenings. Lovely comfy bed and infinite light options throughout. Well done to owners Alan and Holly. Would love to return.. Peter and Donna.

    Such a relaxing place to stay. Great hosts too, friendly and with great recommendations for days out, walks and places to eat. Will be going back.

  • "The perfect holiday cottage."

    Everything is done to an exceptional standard with every touch and detail fully considered and the highest quality throughout. The garden is absolutely beautiful - we wanted to pack it all up and bring it home with us! Of course the hot tub was perfect for relaxing after a day of exploring with peaceful views across the fields. Would have been perfectly happy to spend a week just in the cottage/garden but we did do some exploring across the Peaks which was also wonderful. Really handy bus service just a 10 min stroll along the bridleway. Perfect hosts - on hand for anything you need but in no way overbearing. I’ve stayed in a lot of cottages in the uk and without doubt this was the best. If you’re wondering whether to book - just do it, you won’t regret it!

  • "Overlea Cottage is ideally located for all that the Peak District has to offer."

    Good access to local walks from the front door. Lantern Pike is the local hill for Hayfield with wonderful views or the more relaxing ‘flat’ walk along the Sett Valley Trail. The walks are worth the effort knowing that on your return to the cottage there is the welcoming hot tub to ease your aching limbs. Everything about Overlea Cottage is 5*, stylish decor, made for comfort and fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing staycation. All of this is enhanced by the warm welcome from Al and Holly who are a mine of useful information about their local area. Thanks for a great week!!!

    It's in a gorgeous location which feels super rural but is easy to get to. The cottage is immaculate inside- such a treat to stay somewhere so gorgeous.

About the location


Chapel-en-le-Frith 4 miles; Glossop 5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.

The delightful High Peak village of Hayfield is situated in a wonderful rural setting on the north western edge of the Peak National Park. It’s a peaceful little village, popular with walkers who are attracted by its close proximity to Kinder Scout. Serious walkers head east out of the village, up and over the green foothills to the russet expanse of the Kinder Plateau, Pennine Way and Snake Path, whilst families (and those who enjoy more gentle rambles) head west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills. Edale – an alternative start of the Pennine Way - is only a few miles away. The village caters well for tourists with pubs, cafes and restaurants. Other local attractions include the Goyt Valley, Castleton – with its famous caverns - and the popular spa town of Buxton.
