    “We have just returned from our stay at Lee's farm.”

    ...

    Overall we had a great stay, the location of the house is 10/10 couldn't be any more perfect. But for the price we paid we where expecting a higher standard in the house. The house was incredibly damp, one of the bedrooms the skirting was literally crumbling off & the smell throughout the whole upstairs was unbearable. The heating was ok. This was very tempermental, with plug in radiators in some rooms. due to raidiators not working. Drainage in all toilets, it needs 2/3 flushes to flush any paper down the toilet. Dishwasher does not work at all, it comes on & trips & turns off after 30 seconds, we tried chaining fuses etc but no luck, it wasn't that urgent for us to call anyone out. The whole upstairs carpets are DISGUSTING! no reflection on the cleaners i think years of stains on them without a proper clean, i understand the house allows dogs but this shouldn't be reflecting of the state of the carpets, we stay 3-4 different places a year with our dogs & have never seen anything quite like it. Things like the guest information is almost non existent. apart from a pack about what the house includes, a book on walks & a book for the appliances. local things to do how far the nearest shop is etc would of been very helpful. The house does have everything you need to stay comfortably & a good supply of logs to keep everything warm. Unfortunately the damp is the main thing that would stop us returning & it does bring down our expectations especially that we had our little baby in one of the rooms i understand this is an old house & damp is an occurrence but i feel it needs some major treatment. The driveway near the house is great , half way down the lane where there are some major homes in the road, any other car apart from a 4x4 which we had would of majorly struggled. how much does some hardcore cost to fill these major holes cost (There are about 10)

About the location

PRIESTCLIFFE

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.
