    Everything has been perfect each time. Its the perfect place to relax and by far the nicest accommodation we have stayed in. Everything you need is taken care of and alot of thought has gone in to making this such a wonderful place to be. We will definitely be visiting again.

  • "We had a lovely, relaxing week at the Cow Shed."

    The hot tub is such a treat after a day of walking in the surrounding area. The kitchen has everything you need and the cosy living room area is perfect for unwinding with a book or watching the latest series on the Fire stick provided by the owner. We would love to return.

    Such a comfortable stay in a great location. The hot tub was a godsend after some amazing walks. Such a well equipped cottage with everything you needed and more. A basket filled with eggs, bread and biscuits, milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and sugar in cupboards. You really don't need to take anything but your self and luggage of course. Will definitely return xx

  • "Overlea Cowshed is perfect."

    Lovely, clean and tasteful inside but still homely with a wonderful log burner and everything you need for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Peaceful and tranquil outside with a great hot tub right outside your back door. Location gives great access to the rest of the beautiful Peak District. What more could you ask for? Very happy with our choice and would return without hesitation.

    As there is no window in the bathroom there was a stagnant water smell but it was not so bad after being used and if aired out by having the bedroom window open. Overall it was a very comfortable and well maintained place.

    Thanks for your feedback, I have cleaned out the basin trap and replaced the shower trap to eliminate any unpleasant smells for future guests. Property Owner

  • "Stayed at Overlea Cowshed from 22-29 December."

    1st time this far into the peaks; normally stay around Monsal/Bakewell. What a revelation!! Property first. We parked in the designated space and located the Cowshed. This is no Cowshed!! On opening the door, we were met with relaxed Jazz coming through the Sonos. In front of us was a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and in the kitchen area we found a basket containing Bread, Milk and other staples. All rooms are tastefully decorated and all appliances and fittings are high end. There is a comprehensive set of info and instructions as well as a tablet containing local information like bus timings, places to eat etc. There is a fully working central heating system, which is a doddle to operate and control, as well as a huge log burner. Whilst this is essentially a one bedroom cottage, in no way does it feel small. Overlea farm also benefits from being on the edge of a Public Bridleway. For us this was fantastic, as we didn't need to drive anywhere in order to get some great walks in. And walk we did. I remember coming back from our first walk; 6.5 hours. We were in clip order!! What a bonus it was then to sink into the huge hot tub and be bombarded with bubbles whilst drinking bucks fizz!! Bliss. The area itself is beautiful. If you haven't been before, take a walk up to Lantern Pike (2 hours door to door) The views are well worth it. Also; I don't know if it's something in the water, but the other thing we noted was that everyone we came into contact with, be it fellow walkers or folks in New Mills, was absolutely lovely. That has not always been our experience in other places. This break has left us feeling recharged and wanting to return. Well done and thank you to Holly and Alan for having a vision and achieving it.

    Finished to a very high specification with everything you could need and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and in front of the log fire. Walks directly from the door and loads to do in the local area. Would highly recommend and can’t wait to come back again next year.

  • "Excellent property and stay."

    We entered the property in the evening to be greeted by a Sonos sound system playing jazz music and the lights dimmed. It was an excellent arrival. From that the property did not dissapoint. A beautiful kitchen with quartz worktops, dish washer, coffee machine, and a few essentials of bread, milk, butter, eggs, tea and coffee. The bedroom is huge with stunning views over the countryside. The bathroom has a large shower and the whole property is is great condition feeling like it has just been re furbished. The only small, and I mean very small things I noticed is the bathroom door didn't fully latch so on one windy night we could hear the extractor fan and there is no place to put a washbag next to the sink, a small ledge/shelf is all that's required. I stress that these 2 things are very minor and we left feeling very pleased with the stay and will be visiting again.

  • "Nice cottage but quite run down, several damp patches throughout."

    Lots of scuffs on the walls and around the doors etc. Some areas not cleaned before we checked-in; there was a thick layer of dust on the tv stand, cobwebs in every room, and specks/smears on each of the mirrors. Some plaster cracks on the walls and around the windows, plus the blind in the lounge wasn't functioning properly. We used the hot tub twice during our stay and both times there was someone watching us in the distance which was very disconcerting. We expected better for the price we paid.

    Thank you for your feedback which we gratefully take on board. We were sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your stay, and that you did not feel it was value for money. We were surprised to read your feedback as I clean every property before guests arrival and I know some of the points you outlined are not true to fact - it's a great shame you did not mention any of the points you outline above whilst you were here, or when you saw Alan on your departure. Just to clarify the person who wasn't watching you in the hot tub was Alan and the dog in the field!!. Best wishes Alan & Holly Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in the perfect location."

    Thanks Alan. I loved the small details that you’d thought about like the fresh milk in the fridge and the loaf of bread on arrival. Also, providing tea bags, kitchen roll, aluminium foil etc. Not many properties bother with those. I loved having access to Netflix too. I’m an Amazon Prime subscriber, so it was great to watch some different content. The hot tub was amazing after a day of hiking. My only suggestion would be to perhaps provide a chest of drawers in the bedroom as the one drawer in the wardrobe wasn’t sufficient for my things. However, that’s only a very minor thing! I expect I’ll be coming back another year.

About the location

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.
