“Excellent accommodation with fantastic views”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This place is perfect for us - 5 couples with kids ranging from 2-7yrs, so much so we came back for a 2nd time and are booking up for a third.

The annex is a lovely room which is bagged by our child-free couple as a welcome escape from the melee the kids could create in the main house in the early mornings.

The main highlight is the garden room, which is truly huge and became the central point of our weekend from kids activities, big meals (at the same table) and late night pool games.

The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed and plenty we didn't. The secure garden is also a big plus with great views and plenty for the kids to explore.

The location is great as we are spread out in the a different corners of the UK and there was plenty locally to do with the kids - last year was Heights of Abraham and this year Gulliver's Kingdom - both within a couple of miles which is a relief after travelling from far & wide.

So a hearty recommendation from us - just be warned games of hide and seek can go on a while...

We had a fabulous fortnight in this excellent and spacious house. The facilities were first class. This was a great base for touring the Peak District.

“Fantastic long weekend at Highfield!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Have just spent a long weekend at Highfield celebrating a bunch of big O family birthdays - 80 / 70 / 50 / 50.

There were 14 of us and the accommodation proved to be ideal for that size of party - plenty of space, various rooms, immaculate condition, lots of character, great setting with stunning views.

“Great house”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I stayed here with 11 friends for a stag do. The house is amazing - 6 bedrooms, 5 of which can sleep 3+, a large garden with covered table that seats about 16, barbecue, PC with WIFI, and the best bit - a massive room with a glass wall (overlooking the garden) which houses a snooker/pool table and big dining table.

There is a pub and a park within short walking distance.

“Wonderful house & perfect for family get-togethers .....”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A family get-together. 15 of us aged 5 to 70. Highfield was perfect. Spacious, comfortable, lovely views & easy to stroll down the hill to town. The snooker table was a big hit as was the open fire. We all enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this characterful house.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at Highfields for our annual girlie get together and couldn't have wished for anything better! The house is perfectly equipped with everything you need! The garden room is perfect for dining and partying the night away and the lounge and snug are ideal for relaxing to recover from the night before! The views from the house and gardens are amazing, thankfully we were lucky enough to enjoy both in the sunshine! Tracey was extremely accommodating and helpful both before and during our stay. We hired a jacuzzi from a very lovely gentleman at bubbly tubs on the recommendation of Tracey and Lovely Buffet Catering Company came and prepared us a fabulous meal, both of which topped our weekend off perfectly!
Every one of the 16 girls absolutely loved it! We go away every year and we all said "It's the best yet!" Would highly recommend for all occasions!

“Lovely house, didn't want to leave!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Rented this house on a bank holiday weekend for my Hen party, couldn't have chose a better house and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a similar event. The views over Matlock are really stunning, and the house is just beautiful - all of my hens fell in love with the place and were very sad to leave!
The decor and furnishing is to a very high standard and the house is fully equipped with everything you might need. It's also in a great location with only a short drive into Matlock - I'm sure it'd make a nice walk if we didn't all drink so much champagne!
Was a fantastic weekend and I'll be sure to return in the near future!
