    Loved our stay at Lees cottage, great location up on a hill with awesome views, so peaceful! The half a mile bumpy track is something to consider, all 3 of us managed in and out most days with only one with a little damage to underside (was still drive-able), all part of the charm of staying in beautiful rural location! Our daughter thought it was hilarious and learned the word ‘bumpy’. The big kitchen was well equipped for big meals together, electric oven took a bit of getting used too and high chair needed a good clean on arrival (just little things). The box of jigsaws and games in the utility room was very handy, also the books and dvds in house. Bedlinen was lovely, duvets and pillows were so soft. Our four poster bed was a bit creaky but our 2year old slept happily for ten hours each night in the travel cot....glad we brought our own cot sheet and cellular blanket as not supplied. Perfect proximity to Bakewell and Matlock, lots to do for families (ladybower resevoir, Abraham heights cable car, pooles cavern, blue John cave in Crich, Matlock farm, tram museum...some of the group went in bike rides and long treks) loved the antique shop in Matlock and little boutique clothes shops. Lovely having Fresian cows peering over the garden wall whilst the sun sets...Would definitely stay here again. Glad we took advice from another review booking a Tesco online shop to arrive on the day we arrived as nearest shop for pasta (forgot this on list) was 40 mins round trip, just put Sat Nav in brackets in address. Highly recommend this cosy place!

About the location


Bakewell 7 miles.

Priestcliffe is a small hamlet of farms and dwellings, sited between Taddington, the River Wye and Monsal Head. This is the scenic heart of the Peak District, with high limestone hills offering fantastic walks. Monsal Head is a famous beauty spot, with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye Valley. The position is at a spot where the Wye, on its passage eastwards to meet the Derwent, encounters a band of harder rock and is forced to make a sharp turn southwards and carve its way through a high ridge of limestone. The view is spectacular, with the river far below, winding through a steep-sided and often rocky valley. The route of the former Midland Railway makes its way along Monsal Dale and was carried by a viaduct over the river and into a tunnel which goes right beneath Monsal Head. This is now part of the Monsal Trail, a popular route with walkers. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just 7 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. An ideal location for exploring the Peak District National Park.
