  • "This property was absolutely first class."

    Right in the centre of the lovely village of Hayfield. Plenty of pubs, shops etc on your doorstep. We had a wonderful stay despite the weather. Can't wait to return.

    Thank you - glad you had a nice time - look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

    We had 8 adults and the house was plenty big enough for us all ( although we did have to draw lots for the bedrooms!) stunning location and so nice to sit outside listening to the river. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you very much for your feedback Property Owner

  • "Fantastic and beautiful cottage in a perfect location!"

    The house is really well maintained and is immaculate (especially for a building by a river that no doubt must struggle with damp). The bedrooms are all a good size and all beds are very comfortable. The location is perfect right in the centre of the village with 2 shops, a butchers, a few takeaways, cafes and pubs (the Packhorse is spectacular!) within a 1-2 min walk! We were two families of 3 and really enjoyed our stay - would very happily recommend and come back any time we were in the area! Only “shortcoming” (if any had to be listed) is that there is no allocated parking but it’s really not an issue as there are car parking options on the street or nearby.

    Thank you for your feedback - I am glad you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

    The accommodation was even better than in the photos. Very spacious. We stayed with 5 adults and two little girls and would definately recommend this place. Plenty of things to do. We actually hiked the Hayfield to Kinder Scout Circular Walk. Very challenging but doable for two novices. Plenty of towns and cities to visit...... especially the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent

    The accommodation was fantastic as all the little extras such as tea, coffee milk and a bottle of fiz. There are dishwasher tabs and washing pods if you need them.The owners will help you with anything you need , lovely couple. The village is so friendly we enjoyed quiz night at the Pack horse and an amazing Sunday lunch at the Sportsman. There are so many places to visit and walks to do. We will be back next year absolutely love Riverside cottage.

  • "The property is lovely and the position next to the river is gorgeous."

    It was still large enough when fully occupied by 8 adults, however in the top floor twin the ceiling was too low for any of the men in our party. The location is great for all village amenities and is brilliant for local walks. It is worth pointing out that the church is very close. The bells ring 4 times an hour at night as well so I would not recommend this cottage to anyone who is a light sleeper.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location - well kitted, spotlessly clean and with great walks right on the doorstep."

    We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the patio area next to the river in the evenings. One of the village pubs (The Royal Hotel) is sadly closed at the moment but their car park is being used by the community and was very convenient for the cottage. We did lots of walking and the local pubs were always welcoming, despite our dirty hiking boots. We had lovely food at Colosseo and Sett Valley Cafe and enjoyed the pub quiz at The Pack Horse. Our group of six had a great week at River Cottage and would highly recommend it.

  • "We had a very special family time at River Cottage."

    We were blessed by the weather and enjoyed the sunshine on the patio area. The children enjoyed feeding the ducks and visiting the excellent nearby playground. It was useful to have nearby shops including the butchers and the cricket fans among us were very impressed with all the activity at the nearby cricket ground. We also enjoyed two excellent walks that were manageable with the two year olds in backpacks. The Sportsman and The Packhorse and the Italian all enjoyed our custom. The house was full of character and had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean. We had no issues with parking which had been a slight concern.

    -we didn't cook much but the kitchen was fully equipped and had a huge stove and oven.

The grandchildren had a great time feeding the ducks on the river and in the playground just a little further along upstream. We didn't do much hiking but it is the ideal place for those wanting to get in some serious walking and then relax back at the house.

  • "The cottage was lovely and clean and cosy, comfortable beds, lovely hot showers well equipped with everything you needed."

    Really disappointed with the village itself. Monday and Tuesday was like a ghost town nothing was open. The Royal Hotel had no chef so couldn't get anything to eat, the George Hotel was close for refurbishment, The Pack Horse Inn didn't open until Wednesday, most of the smaller shops were closed just the village store was open even the local chippy didn't open until Thursday, if this happens on a regular basis it would be useful to mention at the time of booking. I think it would be a good idea to provide a local map of the village and surrounding area letting guest know what amenities were close by and a bus time table would be good for those without a car so other areas could be visited. The cottage would be great for walkers and cyclist and those that love the outdoors. When booking the advert said the village had lots of pubs ,restaurants and cafes for tourist that's great if these facilities were open and to top it all it rained most of the week so we couldn't even sit outside next to the river as this was one of the main reasons we booked(not your fault you cant help the weather) lovely cottage unfortunately the village let us down hence we will not be returning.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you were very unfortunate that week as the George was in the process of changing management and the Royal had two chiefs off with Covid. The other four pubs do shut on Monday and Tuesday. Property Owner

    Hayfield (which we'd not even heard of before) is a terrific village with four decent pubs and an excellent Italian restaurant. It's a super base for a week in the Peak District. Parking adjacent to the cottage is a bit hit and miss, but we could always park within three minutes' walk. And for loading and unloading one could stop briefly on a yellow line just down from the cottage. There is a robust railing (kids wouldn't easily be able to squeeze through) separating the cottage terrace from the river below and we felt the property surprisingly safe and suitable for young children (we had a toddler with us). Unreservedly recommended.

The property

Boasting a superb position overlooking the River Sett, in the charming village of Hayfield, is this charming stone-built cottage.

River Cottage Hayfield has been designed to bring together family and friends, or group of walkers to the North Western edge of the Peak National Park, offering a vast array of walks and activities to suit a group of all ages and tastes.

After a long walk over the green foothills, be welcomed into a spacious hallway, where you and your loved ones can kick off your muddy walking boots before relaxing into your evening with the seamless blend of traditional and contemporary interior.

Step into the kitchen/diner, where the exposed beams and the stable door reflect the history of the property, whilst the quality appliances of the Range cooker, the dishwasher and the washer/dryer ensure that you have everything you could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing break.

The charm of the property is continued into the sitting room, where the woodburning stove takes centre stage before the plush sofas and the Smart TV.

From here, throw open the patio doors to discover your private garden area, where you and your loved ones can dine alfresco whilst soaking up the views of the river and the charming village.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find four well-presented bedrooms to choose from, each designed to ensure a tranquil setting to retire to each evening.

On the first-floor you will find a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower and a twin bedroom (zip/link beds), whilst the second floor houses a king-size bedroom which is accessed through a twin bedroom.

Within the village of Hayfield, you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of pubs and cafes that await you, as well as a village shop for picking up any essentials.

From the doorstep of the cottage you will find a number of walking and cycling routes to enjoy on the Peak National Park, with varied walks to suit all ages and tastes.

For those seeking a challenge there is Kinder Plateau, Pennine Way and Snake Path, while the Sett Valley Trail offers a gentle stroll for families.

Alternatively, a short drive will bring you to the villages and towns of Buxton, Castleton and Bakewell, as well as the historic houses of Chatsworth and Lyme Park to brush up on the local history.

River Cottage Hayfield is a superb base for bringing together a group to explore this picturesque location.

About the location


Chapel-en-le-Frith 4 miles; Glossop 5 miles; Buxton 8 miles.

The delightful High Peak village of Hayfield is situated in a wonderful rural setting on the north western edge of the Peak National Park. It’s a peaceful little village, popular with walkers who are attracted by its close proximity to Kinder Scout. Serious walkers head east out of the village, up and over the green foothills to the russet expanse of the Kinder Plateau, Pennine Way and Snake Path, whilst families (and those who enjoy more gentle rambles) head west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills. Edale – an alternative start of the Pennine Way - is only a few miles away. The village caters well for tourists with pubs, cafes and restaurants. Other local attractions include the Goyt Valley, Castleton – with its famous caverns - and the popular spa town of Buxton.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
