Hi Margaret and John

Just a wee note to say how much we enjoyed our stay with you at Highfield. You have a great house and a wonderful garden. It was so nice to have fresh flowers in our room, and fresh fruit at breakfast each morning. You made us feel very welcome, and we are grateful to you both for the help and information you gave us during our stay. After a hectic week with our grandchildren, the peace and quiet at your place was exactly what we needed.

Wishing you continued success – you deserve it !

During the last couple of weeks we have had people from different parts of the world and this has made for some very interesting conversations with guests and between guestDSCF0022s.

Europeans are finding the value of their euro against sterling greatly to their advantage and many are coming here this summer.  A couple from Belgium included a visit to Lyme Park National Trust property into their itinery because of its Pride and Prejudice connections.  Others come especially to visit Chatsworth House for the same reason.  We have a to thank Mr. Darcy for a lot of our business!

The Chinese and Americans particularly enjoy the garden.    A family from Hong Kong visited for their son’s graduation.  Having no garden at home, because many people there live in tightly packed apartment blocks, they were constantly taking photos and loved the sunflowers.

We are currently entertaining people from London visiting for the Buxton Festival and Americans for some energetic walking.  Last weekend some Indian guests were nearly blown off their feet on Stanage Edge and sought shelter down Speedwell Cavern.

So you see whatever your hobbies and interests you can find something to please here in the Peak District.
