We stayed at Lees Farm for Easter, but arrived following heavy snow the previous week. The owner had been in touch with concerns that the farm track, 3/4mile, was impassable. He managed to organise for a snow plough, but the drive was still banked up with 5-8ft drifts. After a non-too-humourous couple of hours stuck on the track, we eventually reached the house. It is totally isolated, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and ideal for keen walkers. The house has been tastefully furnished and has modern, very well equipped, kitchen and bathrooms. The two main bedrooms have comfortable king size beds and offer dual aspect views accross the countryside. The groundfloor bedroom has comfortable bunk beds and a single bed, plus built in wardrobe, but has no drawers or shelving, so with three teenagers, this soon became very messy and hard to keep organised. This room, along with the third first floor room, only have a velux window. The third first floor room was very disapointing. It offers a single bed+trundle, that really is inadaquate for two adults. There is no room to move around the beds, meaning climbing over whoever is on the trundle, which is also most uncomfortable! I would say that this house only comfortably accomodates 8 people, including children. There is also only seating at the dining table for 8, meaning every meal was compromised.
There are some very creaky and unstable floorboards on the first floor, that would disturb even the heaviest sleeper, should anyone move around during the night.
Although the snow caused problems at the begining of our stay, the local fields provided excelent sledging opportunities, providing hopurs of fun for both the adults and children alike.
The farm track is very high in the middle and could easily damage your car. Do not even attempt to tackle it in a low-bodied car.
The house is well placed for several local attractions and close to main routes to Sheffield/Chesterfield.
