“Beautiful house, garden and views for a large group”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Came for a work retreat with one family and 10 other adults. The separate family room above the office was a great place for the family to have some space, while still being part of the larger group. The house is fab but the garden is also great with several different areas and all very well maintained. The house is at the top of a large hill (hence the views) but that just made for races up Bank St. (the 8-year old made it up in 9 mins 30 sec). Booked a canoe trip via Acclimbatize in nearby Cromford which was great fun and the walk back via the High Tor was stunning.

Had driven through Matlock several times but now see it's a great location for exploring the Peaks. Will certainly be back.

“Awesome large group house which provides more than the photos might seem”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

It's a perfect house for a large group. We had a garden party for my brothers 40th and the kitchen, inside & outside dining facilities, BBQ and garden + views could not be faulted....was an ideal venue and full of homely decorative touches which made it so welcoming. The surrounding area has many pubs, walks and places to visit with or without kids so you could easily spend an extended stay here. Only minor limitations to note were that it's at the top of a large hill (but this is Derbyshire after all and that hill also gives you the amazing garden views + taxi's are not expensive) and that there are 5 bedrooms mostly sleeping 3 which isn't totally ideal for large groups of couples but if you can handle those minor logistical limitations it's very much worth a stay.

“Great, well equipped base for holiday with extended family”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very well equipped, clean and very comfortable accommodation for adults and children.
Good location for exploring the area and every facility for indoor and outdoor activities.
So nice to be able to eat outside or inside all together and ample games books and guides to keep everyone happy!
Wifi, computer, TV etc. all available although too busy generally to watch any of the TVs.
If needed, easy access to contact for any problems that may arise and for one small issue there was a very quick response.
In all an excellent choice for us and I'm sure many others with the age range and numbers of our group.

“Perfect House, Perfect Location”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Having stayed at Highfield for my 50th birthday with friends, and having had the most amazing time there, I couldn't wait to return, so when my dad had a very 'big' birthday I couldn't think of a better place to go with all our family for the weekend - and yet again it was amazing. The whole family loved it and all of them want to go back again. It has everything you could wish for and more - the snooker table in the garden room is an added bonus, and the views - well what can I say - just stunning, and so lovely to look out over the valley from the outside under cover eating area (with heater) whilst having a BBQ. The house is spotless and the little touches that the owner provides make it feel so home from home. I can't wait to return and 100% recommend Highfield.

“Wonderful house, fantastic views and great location”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have 4 grown up children and with wives, partners and Grandchildren we needed a big place to house us all. Highfield was perfect. The house is spectacular and suited our needs perfectly. I hired a hot tub and that made the holiday even more special. We especially enjoyed the covered outdoor eating area. Overall this is a special place and deserves all the accolades it receives.
