We loved the gardens, which were great for exploring and there were so many beautiful flowers. There is a small patio with table and chairs to enjoy the garden from and to sit out on sunny days. Each bedroom has a very comfy bed and fluffy pillows - we all had a very relaxing night's sleep. The master bedroom has lovely views of the garden from the skylight. The bathrooms are beautifully finished and the showers are powerful with plenty of hot water. The kitchen has every appliance you could hope for and is super modern. The only downside we found was that there is no dining table in the cottage. The breakfast bar and stools were a bit cramped for six adults but it was possible. Jill and Malcolm are excellent hosts and were extremely welcoming to us during our family reunion. Lea is a lovely village and we also enjoyed a wonderful Sunday lunch at the local pub. We had a great holiday at Lea View Cottage and would love to visit again one day.
This cottage is quite simply superb. The quality of the accommodation surpasses any expectation of holiday accommodation. Set on the most magnificent gardens with breathtakingly views it would have been tempting to spend our whole time in the cottage. Owners so friendly and helpful. Gold standard all round!
I don't even need to post any of our photos as the cottage and gardens look exactly the same as the photos on the website and you can't often say that!
The cottage has been converted to a very high standard throughout and had every amenity you could think of. A fully equipped kitchen with every mod con and a fabulous gas BBQ on the patio made self catering a breeze. We loved the bright sitting area upstairs which was perfect for some family board games. Super comfy beds with top quality pillows and duvets and fabulous modern bathrooms with thick fluffy towels made the whole stay feel very luxurious.
The crowning glory at Lea View Cottage has to be the gardens though - it's such a peaceful location with just the sound of birds so it was delightful to sit and relax on the patio just enjoying the view. The gardens also proved ideal for lots of games of hide and seek for children and adults alike!
Jill and Malcolm were very friendly and helpful hosts and thoroughly deserve the five star reviews.
I cannot speak highly enough about Lea View cottage. From the minute we pulled into the private grounds we knew we had picked a lovely spot for a long weekend break. The cottage is immaculately presented, finished to a very high standard and ideally situated for a peaceful and relaxing break. Inside was breathtaking, with all the facilities you would possibly need from a fully equipped kitchen/dining space, Sky Tv, free wifi, 3 spacious bedrooms, 2 modern bathrooms with underfloor heating, topped off with spectacular views over the gardens.
The cottage is in a wonderful location for walking in the Peak District, with a lovely country pub just down the road (excellent Sunday roasts!).
Jill and Malcolm were a pleasure to meet and made us feel very welcome. They even gave us a little bit of information about the history of the cottage and grounds on our arrival.
We would not hesitate to book this cottage again in 2017.
