Visited Lees a few times now and will be booking again next year. Lovely homely house, feels like home as soon as you walk in. Mrs Webb (November 2017)
Lees farm is in a remote location with absolutely stunning views across the Monsal Valley. The farmhouse is warm, cosy and well equipped - the underfloor heating in the main living room was wonderful. We stayed in November (during some strong winds) and despite being very exposed the property felt very safe. The drive up to the property was no problem at all in a 4-wheel drive - although it was narrow in places, and a local grocery company (Tesco) were able to deliver to the address without any problem. Mrs Wykes (November 2017)
We have had a fantastic stay at Lees Farm. The cottage was very well equipped and the views from the cottage were stunning. The location was the perfect place to unwind and everyone in our group enjoyed their stay adults, children and dogs. Mrs Cornforth (May 2017)
Location, views, cottage was comfy and cosy Mrs Ruddiman from Kirkcaldy (November 2016)
we all enjoyed our stay at lees farm . the cottage was really lovely and the views were fantastic as was the weather the area is really beautiful with thanks mrs Cuthbert Mrs Cuthbert from York (August 2016)
Lees Farm is in a wonderful location , high on a hill overlooking Miller's Dale. The area is a Nature Reserve and we loved the wild flowers and stunning views. Underfloor heating keeps you warm in the lounge and there is an easily lit wood burner in each sitting room. We were there to cycle the Monsal Trail, Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail which we did with great enthusiasm and enjoyment. Walkers can join the Monsal Trail by descending the hill below Lees Farm. A really great holiday! Mrs Yallop from Cambridge (July 2016)
Lees Farm is a beautiful property, with the most amazing views and a large enclosed garden for our dog. Everywhere was clean and we felt at home immediately, very cosy and warm. Will definitely return, a fantastic holiday home. Mrs Websdale from Lowestoft (April 2016)
The location was perfect for all walks and trails. Loved the isolation and the views were amazing from every view around Lees Farm. We were amazed at the size of the grounds which was great for the two dogs with us. Having the two lounges was great because we had a 'teen' lounge and a separate 'adult' area in the evenings. We thought the amount of heat downstairs and constant hot water was very generous and welcomed. Mrs Gray from Lincoln (February 2016)
Lees Farm is a fabulously comfortable house. Warm, cosy and welcoming with a lovely atmosphere. Fantastic log burning stoves which we needed as the weather was wild and windy! And there was gorgeous bed linen which we really appreciated. But above all the location the unique selling point of this property with unbeatable views. And although you're in a rural location, it's only a short drive to great pubs, busy market towns and interesting places to visit. And it's total heaven for dogs with lovely walks from the back door. Mrs Gilbert from Stroud (November 2015)
Just returned from a fantastic stay at Lee's Farm. The place was absolutely amazing; stunning panoramic views of the dales; huge rooms furnished beautifully with lots of extras there when we arrived! The garden was huge and enclosed so plenty of space for children to play safely and the only neighbours were cows and sheep which my youngest thought was awesome. There is a nature reserve which backs onto the property so walks literally in the doorstep too. We were a party of four adults and three children and this was just perfect for our needs. The proximity to places such as Buxton and Bakewell was great though we spent many of our days out in Matlock as there were great days out for younger children there. I can't recommend this property enough, if you like to be off the beaten track but with close access to civilisation then this property ticks all the boxes. We will definitely return as my kids loved it here! Amanda B (September 2015)
Incredible location, perfect for all types of groups. Had walking trails from the front door. The house is gorgeous and well equipped. It was just perfect and we will be returning. Ms Squires from Burntwood (March 2015)
The cottage was warm and cosy with excellent facilities. It was very isolated with howling winds which just added to the atmosphere and relaxation for a weekend in December. Excellent standard all round in wonderful Peak District location. Mrs Russell from Stafford (December 2014)
Absolutely fantastic location, the views were stunning. Very remote and peaceful, exactly what we were looking for. Mr Spencer from Sleaford (December 2014)
From the moment we got within a mile of Lees Farm the views were breathtaking! The property is situated in a beautiful secluded area up high on a hillside. Perfect for getting away from it all. Fantastic large enclosed garden for our golden retriever to run around happily without fear of him running off, of an evening we were regularly visited by the nearby friendly cows. Lees Farm is furnished wonderfully, lovely comfy beds - the best nights sleep in a long time. Sofas perfect for getting cosy in front of one of the two televisions provided and with free view if the weather wasn't permitting we could happily snuggle up in front of the log fire and watch television. The log fires made it perfect within the property, lovely and warm. We will definitely be returning again soon for a longer stay. Perfect for a lovely escape. Miss Leach from Nuneaton (December 2014)
We rented this house for a week in November while my family were visiting from Canada. It was good value being off season and provided everything we needed and more. Views are amazing, even on the wettest day the scenery is stunning. It's lovely being cozy and warm with the wind and rain raging outside... But this house feels rock solid, like it was forged from the stone itself! The bathroom upstairs is lovely and just what the doctor ordered considering I'd just had a baby less than a week before we arrived. Really pampering and relaxing with low lights and beautiful roll top bath. Beds are über comfy and we slept 7 people plus baby no problems. We had numerous family and friends come by to visit and directions were easy as the house is pretty well signposted. Kitchen was well equip for dealing with larger parties. All and all, this house was perfect for our stay. I would highly recommend Lees Farm! jannLondon (November 2014)
We loved everything about Lees Farm, we wanted a getaway where our two dogs would be welcome and this farm was perfect. It is a fairytale setting with views that will be forever etched in our minds and hearts. The enclosed very large garden meant our dogs were safe to run and have immense fun. The farm itself is so cosy and we have never felt so relaxed. It truely is the ultimate get away from it all. We cannot wait to return. Marie, Tony, Oscar & Skye :-) Mr Hicks from Leicester (September 2014)
We have stayed in some lovely cottages over the past 35 years and this one is by far the best; we cannot fault it at all. The view from the farmhouse is to die for! We have stayed here twice now and we all love it. Mrs Taylor from Sawbridgeworth (August 2014)
We used this as a business trip with 3 salesmen.Very spacious, and comfortable, with everything we needed during our stay provided for us. A FlipKey verified reviewer (August 2014)
Great location with fantastic scenery, a welcome every morning and evening from the local bovine community thrilled the children. Mr Lloyd from Salisbury (July 2014)
Lees Farm is in a superb location for exploring all areas of the Peak District and the views from the cottage are stunning. We all had a fabulous week here walking and cycling in glorious sunshine all week. Mrs Shayes from Dereham (July 2014)
Fantastic position of Lees Farm. Should have booked two weeks and not just the one! Mr Haigh from Horsham (July 2014)
Having two sitting rooms both with TV's made it great for those watching the tennis or the football. Wifi worked well throughout. The bedrooms were of a good size and very comfortable and 2 bathrooms made mornings much easier. Mrs Lay from Prescot (June 2014)
Good quality, clean accommodation in a brilliant, remote location. Superb views. Access to adjacent Nature reserve - particularly beautiful at this time of the year. Proximity to lovely walks/cycling on the trails/dales. Central location in the White Peaks area. Good post-booking support from Sykes. Mr Hart from Northampton (May 2014)
The location - isolated, wonderful scenery, easy access to other areas. Mrs Winterbourne from Penzance (April 2014)
Lovely location, isolated but within a short distance from Bakewell and surrounding areas. Stunning views in all directions! Mr Wright from Nottingham (March 2014)
Cosy accommodation in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed a great weekend. Mrs Fishburn from Yarm (November 2013)
Beautiful location with stunning views. Lovely house, warm, clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for a family of nine. Well equipped kitchen, everything catered for. Caretaker very helpful. Mrs Gregory from Hinckley (November 2013)
What can I say about this house, it is gorgeous, everything about it is lovely. The views from the house are to die for. I would happily move into the house tomorrow. Mrs Colyer from South Queensferry (October 2013)
We were lucky with the weather, and so the location was amazing! The views from the cottage were wonderful, and it was lovely to be able to sit outside for breakfast, when it was warm enough. There was plenty of room for everyone to do their 'own thing', but we could all be together when we wanted to be. Our two families could prepare/cook meals, as well as eat together. Being able to walk from the cottage was a bonus. Mrs Barnard from Portsmouth (August 2013)
A lovely place to get away from it all, fantastic scenery and back to nature peace and tranquillity. A good base to explore from and some great cycling and walks nearby. Mrs Marriott from Sudbury (August 2013)
My family and I stayed at this cottage in late July/August 2013 for a week. When we drove up the drive to the cottage we were a little worried as it was a long, bumpy track (as warned) although no match for my Quashqai. It was more nerve-racking for my brother-in-law in his low-suspension Honda Civic full of people and holiday packing. Still, we made it, with no harm to the vehicles and we were blown away by the location of the cottage right on top of the world! It had the most amazing views for miles in every direction. We could only stand and stare for the first half hour. The cottage itself was also beautiful. Low ceilings so beware if you are a tall family like ours! the kitchen had granite surfaces and was full of every utensil, pot, plate, cups and cutlery that you could possibly need. The hob was amazing - I want one now! The rooms were perfectly appointed. My 9 month old baby hasn't slept better than when she was staying here! It was nice to have a "snug" where the children played and a proper living room where the adults relaxed. The bathrooms were spotless and beautiful. The standalone bath made bathtime a lot of fun for the children and rather pleasant for me after a long horse ride at Ladybooth stables near Hope Valley. Other activities we enjoyed was bike riding the Monsal Trail - the start of which in the Wye Valley was only a 5 min drive up the main road from the cottage. We also went to Bakewell and enjoyed the famed Bakewell pudding. As well as walking the immediate surrounds (many walks straight from the cottage which was amazing!) we also ventured half an hour south to Dove Dale - so pretty! We managed to walk to a couple of pubs from the cottage - one down in Miller's Dale and the other on the A6 (The Waterloo). If you have babies, I recommend packing a sling/baby carrier not a buggy as the unmade roads don't work with buggies! This was one of the nicest holidays I've had in a long while - and this is mostly due to the stunning location of the cottage and how beautiful it was staying there. Everyone kept congratulating me on finding it, but I had no idea how lovely it was until we say it in person. The furnishings have been updated from the ones I can see in the photos in Trip Advisor. It looks nicer and they have a massive TV which connects to our laptop or plug a USB directly in which made my nerdy husband very happy. In summary, I highly recommend this cottage to any other families wanting to get away from it all. We will have to go again next year! SarahandCas (August 2013)

This is a beautifully secluded cottage with the most magnificent views I have ever seen. The cottage has a beautiful large garden. Inside, the cottage was very well appointed with a beautiful kitchen with granite surfaces and well stocked on utensils and crockery. It was perfect that we had some walks directly from the cottage, and we could cycle very leisurely to Bakewell for some much deserved Bakewell pudding. Mrs Cogan from London (July 2013)
The isolation of the cottage, amazing views. Comfortable cottage with great walks on the doorstep. Mr Ward from Hove (June 2013)
This is the second year we have been here and again we were not disappointed. Mr Harley from Dunfermline (May 2013)
Fantastic views from the house, nice and comfy and spacious. Really enjoyable stay. Mr Sumner from Gateshead (May 2013)
I stayed at Lees Farm over the May Bank holiday as part of a large group of friends. The property is very isolated, with beautiful views down the valley. There is a pub nearby although it is a very steep walk and might not be advisable in the dark! The house itself is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday, (except for a barbecue which might come in handy). The property is ideal for families with kids or big groups as it has a huge garden and is surrounded by fields and open space to play in. Contrary to earlier reviews, wifi has been installed at the property and you get a relatively good signal throughout the house. The surrounding area is beautiful - we hired bikes from Bakewell to cycle the Monsal trail, went kayaking, go carting and of course there are lots of walks you can do from right outside the house itself. Our cars did struggle getting up and down the track to the property, but unless you have a small sports car or low suspension vehicle then it's certainly not that bad. We even ordered an online supermarket delivery which found the house and delivered perfectly on time. All in all I would definitely recommend this property for groups or big families! xbackpackerx (May 2013)
We loved our stay here. The house is cosy and inviting with everything you could need. The provision of a dog crate and a baby gate was brilliant. Just what we needed after the dog got his paws walked off. The house sits up a gravel type road, its not horrific but if you have a low car take it nice and slow. Far away enough to be lovely and peaceful, close enough to have amenities within a short distance. Perfect. So much so we are returning in a few weeks. Jasper can't wait. Only thing I would change is there is no wifi access. Phone signal is very patchy. Judey-Judey (March 2013)
The owners provide you with everything you will need and more for your stay, it is beautifully situated, and the amenities are fantastic. We will definitely be staying here again! A FlipKey verified reviewer (February 2013)
This cottage was booked for my birthday celebration - what an amazing house! views were outstanding, cottage was gorgeous - we didn't want to leave! Our little boy loved running around in the gardens and neighbouring fields. We will definitely be returning for more! A FlipKey verified reviewer (January 2013)
Peace and quiet, beautiful panoramic views from the property. We appreciate out of the way locations and this was just up our street. Mr Redshaw from Romney Marsh (August 2012)
Great property in a wonderful location. Mrs Turner from Nottingham (April 2012)
The cottage was very welcoming, the garden was spacious and there were two sitting rooms so plenty of space for all six of us. Mrs Ferris from Bridgwater (March 2012)
Initially we thought we were well and truly lost whilst trying to find the secluded location, until the fabulous Lees Farm came into view. Driving into the spacious driveway, we were awestruck by the views all round. It took a few speechless moments between us to take it all in. This alone had won us over already, even before we had entered the house. When we did venture inside, we were greeted by a modernised house which still oozed with character and had everything we needed. There were 8 of us who stayed and we never felt short of space once. Once we had our bearings, we then had the wonderful countryside to explore, with the wonderful Anglers Rest a short walk away though the rolling hills of the Peaks. Returning to the cosy house was just as satisfying, especially with the under floor heating on, where we made the most of taking those views in. Overall I can honestly say I would love to revisit and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Excellent! Mr Goodwin from Leicester (March 2012)
Lees Farm didn't disappoint, the views were outstanding, especially when we had 2 days of snow. Our dog was in doggie heaven, we walked her feet off without ever having to take the car. The farm house was warm and cosy. Brilliant! Miss Chapman from Padstow (December 2011)
Stunning location looking over the valley and great walks. Lees Farm was a property that was easy to feel comfortable in. There was a lovely table that we spent several hours sitting and laughing around. Mr Abbott from Abertillery (November 2011)
We arrived during a shower and pulled up outside the property to cries of 'Ahhh' and 'Ohhh' as the magnificent view appeared before us and a brilliant rainbow rose up out of the valley below. A fantastic start to a memorable holiday. Ms Cash from Boston (September 2011)
The property was ideal for a peaceful getaway. The whole area is great. Mr Kryza from Bedford (August 2011)
The farmhouse was excellent.Very comfortable and warm.The beds were the most comfortable we have slept in having stayed at numerous holiday cottages.It was nice to have a soak in the roll top bath and the views from every window were fantastic.We enjoyed the isolated location. M.Batley (August 2011)
The house was very well equipped and comfortable with the most amazing views and fantastic walks. Mrs Softley from Norwich (July 2011)
We have stayed in many holiday cottages and this was one of the best. The overall standard was excellent and the beds were the most comfortable we have slept on for holiday accommodation.We would definitely book this property again as very clean and comfortable. Mr Batley from Taunton (June 2011)
Amazing location, beautiful and peaceful. The house was lovely, well equipped and a good size. A gem of a place Mathers (April 2011)
The location and views from the property were stunning. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The cottage layout makes it very cosy and perfect for splitting the party between quiet readers and telly/ games room. Mrs Basquill from London (December 2010)
The cottage was perfect for my plans. It was my 30th birthday and I wanted to celebrate it with family and a few friends. There were 7 of us and two dogs. Plenty of room for us all. The cottage was warm and cosy and in an ideal location for dogs, since it has a field for them to run around in. The pub however is down a steep climb which was not suitable for my mum who is disabled. All in all this was a great experience and I will be booking this cottage again. I also recommend it to my friends all the time. Donna (December 2009)
A beautiful house in a wonderful location. The house had everything we needed for our stay and it was wonderfully out of the way in order to get away from it all. The beautiful towns of Bakewell and Buxton are a short drive for the days when you actually want to go and do something. Highly recommended. A FlipKey verified reviewer (December 2009)
