The cottage was very welcoming and very homely and comfortable.. The owner made us very welcome and explained everything they had put in place because of the present situation. The little welcome touches such as tea coffee milk were a lovely thought. The garden was peaceful. The area was beautiful and we would love to visit again.

Dr Haslam, August 2020
This was a most comfortable cottage with all the provisions that a family would need.. The garden is beautiful and the property was cleaned to the highest possible standards. We would definitely recommend!
Mrs Chadwick, August 2020

The cottage was spotless & exactly as described, a really lovely place to holiday
2nd visit ,great place v clean will return again..
The house was of a high standard and met our needs very well.. The weather was very good so we were able to enjoy relaxing in the garden listening to the birds which was a delight. We had an elderly relative with us who walks with a stick and the straight run of stairs (13 steps) had a rail on both sides. So although steeper than at his home he managed them well. There were mats along the landing which we rolled up during our stay so not a trip hazard for him during the night. Milk, tea, coffee and biscuits awaiting our arrival was a kind and welcome thought.
Beautiful house, warm, well equipped and very comfortable.. Loads of room. Had a great week in a lovely area of the country.
Lovely setting, beautiful house, everything we needed provided..
A rare home from home cottage .. Will be going back
I've stayed here three times now and will keep coming back.. Highfield Cottage is lovely, it's peaceful and perfect for my needs.
Wonderful warm welcome from Monica.. So many little extras - so many helpful and useful resources - a lovely garden for the grandchildren - a perfect break!
We felt utterly at home and totally relaxed.. Monica spares no effort to make the cottage exactly right for us. Leek area is a hidden treasure of a location.
The cottage was excellent. In a good location with many walks, and the scenery was fantastic.
We were staying with our daughter-in-law's parents for the birth of our third grandchild. The house is 100-odd years old and built for senior estate staff for a large country house, now gone. It's been extremely well modernised - all the work we saw was of top-class quality without a trace of pretension or fussiness. Nice big kitchen for family meals and get-togethers; superb showers; 2 comfortable lounges with big tellys and DVD player. We'll want to come back if we ever have occasion to stay up there as a group again.

Booked this cottage for a week for 2 adults and 3 children and were not disappointed. Very warm welcome with fresh flowers and a homemade sponge cake waiting :) had everything we needed especially for my 16 month old daughter, large cot was built up for our arrival which was the main positive for me as I don't like using travel cots for more than 1 night , highchair and safety gate available also . Garden and summerhouse were amazing with kids safe and happy with outdoor toys provided . Washing machine and dryer made the holiday easier with the kids. Had 2 days at Alton towers only short drive away , 1 day at Drayton manor and waterworld in Stoke. Very peaceful location and second sitting room was great for my 2 sons aged 8 and 5 . Hope to book again next year for 2 weeks as there is loads to do and I will be recommending this cottage to all my friends and family. Best self catering I have stayed in with a very pleasant owner. Thank you for making our holiday a great experience.

It was a clean well maintained property.. The owner was at hand to welcome us. This was much appreciated.
Beautiful house with excellent facilities, lovely garden to relax in, in peaceful surroundings.
It was a lovely touch that there were board games and garden games for a good age range, as well as a wide selection of books.
Monica has provided all the comforts of home in the house and the welcome pack of essentials and some local treats was very much enjoyed.
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with views of the surrounding countryside.
The bathroom is beautifully decorated and has a large walk in shower as well as a bath.
The owner is at present installing a downstairs shower room which I am sure will be as well appointed as the current family bathroom.
We enjoyed visiting Matlock Bath, Chatsworth area and the Heights of Abraham but the highlight of our visit was Trentham Monkey Forest where you can wader with the 140 monkeys that roam free.
We had a lovely fish and chip supper at "George's" in Belper very reasonably priced and included bread and butter and a drink a firm favourite will all of our party.

Our stay at Highfield Cottage has been fabulous. One of the best holiday rentals I've experienced. The smallest details have been seen to, all needs anticipated. There is no WiFi at the cottage but coverage is available so not really an issue. I hope to return and will recommend Highfield to anyone visiting the area.

Absolutely fabulous stay at this cottage. From the warm welcome we received, to the wonderful homely feel of the cottage. Every comfort catered for. The garden was used everyday as the weather was fantastic. Great to have the benefits of 2 tv's and a washing machine, especially when travelling with 3 teenagers. It was well situated for all the attractions. We will definitely be back.

The cottage had a lovely family home feel to it and our two young children immediately felt at home. It was warm and welcoming with a well equipped large kitchen that was perfect for us. The garden was lovely and a good lawn for the children to play and crawl around on. We would definitely consider staying there again.
