  • Relax in the elevated garden with views over the countryside
  • A walkers’ paradise with many paths up Kinder Scout, accessible from the doorstep
Property code: 57871

Enjoy a stay at this cosy cottage in the popular village of Hayfield with its local amenities, being located at the foot of Kinder Scout, the highest peak in the District, this is a walkers’ paradise.

A cosy cottage in a village position with fantastic access to Kinder Scout. Hayfield is located at the north-eastern edge of the Peak District National Park, making it off the beaten track compared to some regions. The north of the Peak District is emptier, starkly beautiful, and attractive to those that shun the crowds. There are some great day trips to be had in the area, so make sure Blue John Cavern, Chatsworth House, Buxton Spring, Lyme Park and the Pennine Way are on your radar. The Peaks have a strong literary connection to Jane Austen, so there are numerous pilgrimages to add to your list of day trips too.

Step into the cottage through the front door into the handy porch area, leave your muddy boots and coats here and step into the lounge which is decorated with neutral tones and provides comfortable seating to relax after a day of exploring. Put your feet up and listen to the sounds of the crackling open fire, a real country retreat. There is a small dining table which provides the perfect place for breakfast. Leading on into the kitchen which has a small breakfast bar, electric oven and hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The first floor is accessed by a steep staircase from the kitchen. Heading up the stairs you will find the super-king-size zip-and-link bedroom (which can be made up as a twin on request) located at the front of the house with views over the village. There is a single bedroom which benefits from views over the fields behind. Completing the accommodation is the bright and airy bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Heading outside, there is a small garden area which is accessed via steps leading to an elevated patch overlooking the famous ‘Twenty Trees’ a local landmark when climbing Kinder Scout. There is roadside parking to the front of the cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request) and 1 single

Let me start by saying that this is a lovely cottage in a great location and we really enjoyed our stay. However: 1) we felt the cottage wasn't as clean as you would expect from holiday accommodation, particularly during a pandemic; and 2) just to stress that the garden is not secure and is up a flight of very steep steps that are very slippery in Read morethe rain - we had to put our dog on his lead and carry him up and down the steps to the toilet every morning Hide

A lovely cottage which is much bigger on the inside than appears from outside. Very clean and everything you would need. Plenty of walks from the door so don't need to take out the car everyday. We had a couple of meals, with a glass of wine, sitting in the little terrace garden watching the sun go down. Would recommend.
