    Beautiful view from the sitting room and plenty of space for all of us. House was clean and well equipped. Lots of walking available from the door and well placed for visiting further afield. Hayfield was a lovely village and the pub nearby a bonus. We all said we'd love to come back.

    One of the few we've visited that is properly equipped in all aspects. Lovely outlook over the cricket field and the village is stunning. So nice to see residents respecting their village's appearance. The cafe, Rosie Lee, just a few doors down was excellent. Lovely people.

    It was more spacious than I expected - more like a townhouse disguised as a cottage! Great amenities (we even found a colander eventually!) including games and lego, and everything we needed for the week. Thank you!

    Thank you, glad you found the house spacious and had everything you needed. Property Owner

    A lovely comfortable cottage for 8 people & a dog, very homely & had everything. Lovely touch to leave good quality tea, coffee & biscuits. Just one little thing, you do need one extra blackout blind in the top bedroom over the bed.

  • "Property was very homely."

    Had everything you needed and had beautiful views from the main sitting room. A real home from home. Plenty of room for the 7 of us that stayed there. Although the stairs between the levels of the house are very steep. So would be mindful of this if anyone with mobility issues or small children are considering stopping here. The only downside was parking outside of the property. It was quite a busy thin street. But we always managed to get our 2 cars parked within walking distance of the property. There were a few lovely pubs and convenience stores within easy walking distance. The property is a good base for lots of lovely walks. The mattresses were very comfortable and would love to know what kind of mattress is on the bed in the top bedroom. As my sister in law would love to purchase one as she has had the best weeks sleep she's ever had. Although don't leave the velux windows open on a night as the church bells ring through the night. Overall a lovely week

  • "The cottage was a perfect size for our staycation."

    8 of us had plenty of room to be together in the main living room/dining area, as well as having enough room to spread out when we needed to. It was very clean, warm and fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Good location to nearby shops and a lovely view at the rear of the property. We did encounter a problem with the wifi connection but l emailed the owner and her response was quick and apologetic, which was much appreciated. She let us know it was caused by a problem in the area and it was then resolved the next day. I would recommend a stay at the cottage and would definitely stay there again.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We’d be very happy to welcome you again. Property Owner

  • "A lovely house."

    Comfortable beds, a good amount of space for everyone. Wonderful views from the windows, beautiful walks from the door. Great communication from the owner. We will definitely come again as it was perfect for our needs. I would tell others that the stairs are quite steep and an old dog/ less able person might struggle. Our 9 year old dog did limit his visits to the basement garden because of this. Also the garden would not have been secure for a more adventurous/able dog than ours!

  • "Fabulous location looking out over the cricket pitch and close to the lovely village play area which includes a skate park and pump track, as well as swings and equipment for both toddlers and older children."

    Our children were small when we first stayed here but still like to join us when we stay even though they are now grown up. Wonderful walking in beautiful and varied scenery. Bridleways for mountain biking too if you're good on rocky tracks! The house has everything you need for a family holiday. Comfy beds, good hot showers, big utility area for sorting wet/muddy gear. Well equipped kitchen for full self catering. Toys, games and books. Good cafes and pubs in walking distance, well stocked village stores but also supermarkets a short drive away.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Spring Bank Cottage in November 2021 - which coincided with a storm and snow!"

    The heating was great and the house was cosy - we were not cold despite the frigid temperatures outside, and the living space was perfect for 5 adults. Plenty of space for walking boots in the hallway, and the 2 bathrooms had plenty of hot water for showers after freezing hikes in the hills. We didn't use the room on the lower ground floor, but can see how that would be wonderful in the summer or if you have kids. The parking wasn't a problem - we had 2 cars and always found a space on the road, even if it wasn't right outside the doors. We'd definitely book again for a friend's hiking trip. It was the perfect location.

  • "The tv aerial has blown over , so no bbc , the oven was very poor , didn’t heat up probably, so made it difficult cooking ."

    It was suppose to have a deep clean but there was dust on lamp shades , the stairs were really dusty and dirty leading to top bedroom , and cobwebs in bedroom. The hairdryer was missing form master bedroom But was a lovely location, beautiful garden we really enjoyed ourselves

    We're delighted you really enjoyed your stay, and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. Pending a more thorough investigation of the TV reception, it has been re-tuned and is now receiving BBC. The oven is checked regularly, but may be different from the one you have at home. We'll look into these points, most especially the dust on the lampshades and staircase which should not have been there. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very nicely presented."

    The children especially loved playing in the downstairs basement room that opened out into the garden. The village is very picturesque with a stream running through and plenty of hungry ducks to feed and there's a good children's playground within easy walking distance. We had some nice days out and some of our group had a good walk up Kinder Scout. We found that the area catered for children and adults and the cottage had plenty of space for ourselves, and our son's family. A perfect family get- together

  • "Well equipped cottage in village with lots of facilities."

    Lovely to sit on the balcony or garden and watch the cricket. Appreciated the toys, books and generous provision of cleaning materials etc. One warning, as there are four floors there are three quite steep staircases - we didn’t feel it safe to let the 2-year old go up and down on her own. One stair gate is provided and we took another, so managed ok, but do bear this in mind if you have more young children than adults

  • "The cottage is in a great location."

    There are lots of lovely walks you can do direct from the front door, including to Kinder Scout and Reservoir. It's also a good base for other walks in the area, including to Mam Tor and Castleton and cycling around Derwent Water. Hayfield is a great base - some lovely pubs, a butcher, post office and a fish and ship shop! All you need on your doorstep. The house itself is within easy walking distancce of the all the above. It overlooks the village cricket ground at the back, which provides an additional sense of space. It is nicely furbished with all modcons. The owners were very helpful. We visited in April. We'd highly recommend it.

    The rest of the party chilled, watched the cricket and soaked up the atmosphere of a very nice village. There is a brilliant pub less than five minutes walk away so I didn't even have to cook! We were given the wrong key code to the safe, but this was very easily and quickly sorted out so it was not really a problem. Overall, it was a perfect break for a stressed out family and we will definitely look to book again next year.

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.
