Furnished like a bed sit. Everything was dirty, even an old sock was down the side of the bed. Switches were sticky, back gate does not close so doesn't feel very safe either. My daughters socks were filthy within a few seconds of removing her shoes. Apparently their cleaner let them down but that was clearly a lie as it was clearly not cleaned properly for a long time. We booked through sykes having used them several times before and not having any problems with any of the other properties.

Fantastic cosy comfortable cottage.. My wife and I and our 3 young children had a lovely holiday. Location is perfect as can walk into Leek in a few minutes, lots of pubs and great restaurants to choose from. Great location to explore the Peak District as just 3 miles away your in the depths of winding country lanes and sheep. We visited Chattesworth House its about an hours drive from the cottage.

No BBQ as stated on listing.. Only 2 chairs outside not 4 as in photo. Bunk beds very uncomfortable and creak very loudly when the occupant moves, bearing in mind we only had a 7 and 10 year old in them. Road outside very noisy, wagons etc travelling through night no double glazing. Church bells ring every 15 mins. We all struggled to sleep for all of these reasons. Wouldn’t visit again. Leek itself is nice, very central location. Some people might like the fact it is central but it was too noisy for us. Basic inside, a wall had wet paint on it which my daughter managed to touch and get paint on her new coat. It cleaned off but a text or a note to say wet paint would have been nice. Strong smell of paint for a couple of days too. I’ve stayed in worse places but another cottage you advertise in the lakes was amazing when we stayed there. This one was nowhere near as nice. Was okay for the price, just didn’t suit our family.

Great location.. Could walk straight into town. Great value. Cosy cottage, full of character. WiFi would be a good addition plus some intstructions about the house (eg how to boost he beating, where to put the rubbish)

The cottage was cute and the location was very good.. Lots of useful things provided, loo rolls , washing up liquid, tea, coffee etc. Which we were pleased about. However it was a bit scruffy, carpets, mats were very old. The radiator in the bathroom did not work . The radiators in the bedrooms needed "bleeding" as only hot halfway up. Could not get the tv in the bedroom to work. There were lots of dvds in the cottage but no player.

Rather poor value for money on a number of counts, although reasonable for a few days only.. Several things did not work very well and the hot water was at a dangerous scalding temperature. The shower was impossible to use and could only be hand held anyway. The furniture, especially the sofas were not comfortable and my wife also found the bed mattress hard. We had chosen self catering as my wife has chronic back pain, with the view of it being more comfortable to sit in the evenings. Generally the furniture and fittings were poor, though the kitchen was new. We were also very careful on the steep, twisty stairs, as they had no bannister. However, the owner was kind to allow us to put stuff in the fridge in the morning before we took up residence as we had a tight schedule. Although the property was old, it was clean. We didn't think however that it was Sykes standards or should have been advertised with the difficulties such as the steep stairs and the small unmarked step out of the kitchen highlighted.

Visited this cottage weekend of the 16th September 2017. It is in a great location.We found it not as described on the adverts, dirty bathroom, dust on window sills and lampshades.The cottage felt generally stuffy. The rail by the staircase was very wobbly, compromising health and safety for guests especially kids.

Cottage was lovely and cosy and very comfortable.. Only downside is the lack of a proper shower but I knew that from the listing and can see there isn't really room for one.

We really enjoyed our stay at Overton Bank. It's a delightful cottage suitable for a family. Clearly it is a small property but that is part of its charm and it has been cleverly fitted out to make maximum use of the space. Five of us stayed here (two adults, one teenager and two younger children) but the size of the cottage certainly wasn't an issue and we all loved the experience of staying in such an old and interesting cottage. Car parking was no problem and we were always able to park close to the cottage. It was very nice being able to walk everywhere and not having to use the car. We would definitely stay here again and are hoping to do so next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in such an old and interesting building.. Although the cottage is small the space has been adapted thoughtfully and creatively, with the décor in keeping with this lovely old cottage. The owners have provided a selection of local history books that give a good background to Overton Bank and Leek as a whole. The cottage is ideally situated right in the centre of town, we really appreciated having shops, places to eat and walks in the park just a short distance away. We would definitely stay here again and hope to do so in the future.

A great little cottage in a lovely market town location - right on the door step of all the shops and restaurants. Very convenient, stayed with our two year old and was really cosy and fun. The owner was really nice and super helpful. Well equipped kitchen that has everything you need. It is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail and lots of lovely local books and information guides to help you enjoy your stay.

Very cosy cottage that is beautifully decorated and right in the centre of Leek. The owner went out of her way to take care of us and was very friendly. Lovely courtyard area, comfortable and cosy lounge and great for our little girl with lots of children's books.

Stayed for a week mid-March 2014, three adults. Cottage is in centre of the town with arts centre and market square < 200m away. We found footpaths North and west into the hills and ideal for cycling base. Excellent Wifi and Leek had at least 5 nice places to eat. 50 Mins from Manchester airport, 60 Minutes from Sheffield, 60 Minutes to Derby train station, so we were able to gather from all over the UK. Excellent base for a week in the Peaks.

This cosy cottage was ideal for our needs, being centrally located in Leek on the edge of the Peak District. It was central yet quiet with a bijou garden ideal for a glass of wine in the late afternoon/early evening sun. It was very well centrally heated and with good all round facilities. Mind your head if you are over 5'6" though as the door heights are quite low! The only thing that we would have liked is a proper shower rather than the hand held one in the bathroom. Overall, it was excellent value for the price and we will definitely consider returning, despite generally usually choosing to stay in different places.

We had an excellent stay. There were shortbread biscuits, assorted teas, coffee, a pint of fresh milk...every comfort arranged for our arrival. It's a very quaint, fairly comfortable conversion - a tiny house but converted with taste and had everything we required for a comfortable week's stay. Access through the car park was really convenient, located extremely conveniently in beautiful Leek. Could do with more comfortable seats for family of four (with teens) and a frying pan, otherwise no complaints, it was a lovely base and we'd definitely consider staying there again if visiting. Not too far from alton Towers - beautiful drives both directions, perfect proximity for The Roaches...wonderful holiday, with property high on the list for it's success.
