The property

Bear Pit Cottage is the perfect abode for your escape to the heart of the Peak District National Park, where you can experience the beauty of Hayfield with this charming two-bedroom cottage.

Nestled in the picturesque village, this delightful retreat is perfect for those seeking a peaceful getaway to Derbyshire.

Step inside and be welcomed by the warm and inviting atmosphere.

There are three levels to the cottage; enter through the main door into the ground floor, where you will find the well-equipped kitchen, which provides all the essentials for cooking up a storm, whether it be a hearty breakfast or a delicious dinner, with access to a small balcony giving an amazing view of the river and village church.

Descend the spiral staircase to the living/dining room, with its plush seating and wood burner, it’s the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the stunning surrounding countryside.

Take in the breathtaking views of the River Sett from the patio, accessed through the French doors from the living room, the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine.

Overlooking the river on the opposite bank is St Matthew’s Church, with its imposing clock tower.

There is a staircase to the top floor where the two bedrooms are a real treat, each with their own unique character.

The first bedroom features a well-presented double bed and overlooks the river, while the second is also a double, with a view of the village.

Both rooms provide the perfect place to rest and recharge. The cottage is positioned in the centre of Hayfield, opposite Hayfield Pharmacy, within a charming village with a range of amenities, including pubs, shops, restaurants, and a Post Office.

For those seeking an adventure-filled break, the Peak District offers a range of activities to suit all interests.

Take a scenic hike through the rolling hills or go rock climbing on the famous Stanage Edge.

Whether you’re an avid walker or just looking for a peaceful retreat, the Peak District has something to offer everyone. Highly recommended are the walks around Kinder Reservoir, or even trekking the heights of Kinder Scout, all accessed directly from Bear Pit Cottage with no need to drive.

If you are feeling even more adventurous, try the short drive to the caverns in picturesque Castleton, or the cable car at the ‘Heights of Abraham’.

The cottage is conveniently located, making it easy to explore the surrounding area by car.

With Manchester just a short drive away, you can experience the hustle and bustle of a city, before returning to the tranquility of your rural retreat.

For a closer excursion, try New Mills with its Millenium Walkway.

Explore Derbyshire and the Peak District with a stay at the lovely Bear Pit Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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:
