  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Cottage."

    Location in the centre of Hayfield was really handy for the local amenities. The property was very clean with everything you could think to make our stay comfortable and easy. A nice size with space to move around Generous welcome pack with dog treats too. A secure paved garden space and it's own parking space. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable with good storage space for clothes. Shower was good. We liked it so much, we have booked again for later in the year.

    Thank you for your feedback, it's great to know you enjoyed the Peak District. I hope you enjoy your next stay as much as you did this one, each season brings it's own pleasures and challenges and and in the autumn you can sometimes see the Northern Lights in the dark sky. Pat Property Owner

  • "This cottage is a perfect place to stay."

    It was our second visit and we will certainly return. A great location with plenty of walks nearby, plenty of places to have a drink or some food. The cottage is very clean, cosy and comfortable. And everything works! We've been elsewhere where this is not the case, but The Cottage at Hayfield is so well appointed. It is highly recommended. 5 stars!.

    It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay again and it feels comfortable enough for a return visit. Thanks for the feedback Pat Property Owner

  • "The whole experience from booking a cottage to going to the cottage was really lovely and relaxing."

    The Cottage was very clean tidy and cosy. I was able to take my two dogs who was very happy as there are lots of little local walks or longer walks depending on your own ability. We will be booking again soon

    What lovely feedback even though the weather has been miserable. I hope you had a lovely Chirstmas and have a prosperous 2024. We look forward to you visiting again when you and your dogs can enjoy better weather! Property Owner

    The cottage has everything you need and was spotlessly clean. We’d love to visit again.

    We would love to see you again, hopefully when the weather is a bit better. The peaks are lovely in the sun or snow but not so good in the rain when the views are limited Property Owner

  • "A delightful warm and cosy cottage with everything you need for a lovely, relaxing holiday."

    It was certainly home from home. We enjoyed the Welcome Pack which included milk, bubbly and human and dog treats. There was also plenty of supplies in the store cupboards. This is the first holiday cottage that we have stayed in that has supplied all day-to-day essentials. Enclosed front and rear yard areas for our 2 terriers. Perfectly situated for all the local amenities and local walks. Enjoyed regular walks along the flat Sett Valley Trail with a lovely welcoming Cafe half way (1 mile). Slightly disappointed with local eateries, although enjoyed Sunday lunch and an evening meal at The Lamb Inn, which is a short drive away. Will hopefully be returning to The Cottage again. Thank you.

    Thanks you so much for your comments. I hope when you return you try The Sportsman which is a scenic walk away up Kinder Road. My late husband and I used to drive up, enjoy wine with our meal and walk back. Dogs are welcome there and our dogs liked the walk back and the walk the following morning to retrieve the car. I am told that The Sportsman can also offer pre-booked eat at home Sunday lunches! The Pack Horse, 2 minutes away is highly recommended but I understand that you have to book in advance as it is so popular. Property Owner

    Wonderful property in lovely location. Extremely well equipped - perfect for holiday with dog

    I'm really pleased that you (and your pets) enjoyed your holiday. Thank you for your kind comments. The nice thing about the location is that while it is so close to all the facilities it faces an unadopted road so that it is really safe for wayward dogs - I have a border collie so I should know.

    It’s an ideal base for visiting the beautiful Peak District, unfortunately not so much to do when the weather is bad.

    Clean, tidy and comfortable, we had a great week. An excellent base for several walks, the village had plenty of amenities - all within walking distance. Thoroughly recommended and we would like to thank the owners for the use of their cottage and the welcome back that greeted us.

    Thanks for all the little extras too - helpful for a few things that we forgot. Kitchen was well furnished with utensils and pots etc. We didn't manage to use the outside space but inside was spacious enough for our family of four (two girls under 7) and we enjoyed playing some of the games left in the house.

    i'm so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the Peak District, I know you had confirmed that the kitchen was fully equipped before your stay. You didn't mention who won at the games.... Kind regards Pat Property Owner

    The Cottage is quite spacious and has great outside space. The kitchen has everything you would need. TV is great, the wifi is strong. We opted for the two single beds as they had mattress toppers and were super comfortable. All in all a great stay in lovely Hayfield.

    I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The double bed is super comfortable but I can get a bed topper if you think it would make it even better. I would be grateful for your feedback on this kind regards Pat Property Owner

  • "This was a very nice property to stay in with all comforts, well equipped and in a lovely area as well."

    There was plenty of information about the local area and the owner went above and beyond providing luxuries we hadn't contemplated. We needed to make a late amendment to our booking which did not incur any additional charge and for that we are grateful and minded to come to Sykes again in the future.

    It's really nice to hear that you enjoyed your time at Hayfield, the conservation area is lovely although the parking is tight. Everyone works so hard to afford a break so it should be relaxing and interesting kind regards Pat Property Owner

  • "Excellent property in which the owner has thought of everything and provided more than you'd normally expect."

    The property is close to stunning countryside and walks, befitting the Peak District. The cottage is brilliantly situated but will test your parking skills if you have an estate like us. We would definitely return here if we were coming to this area again.

    Thnk you for your feedback, I'm glad you appreciated being in the centre of the conservation area. The parking is tight and if the weather is icy I park on the road! Very few of the cottages have a private area and the locals are all used to visitors and residents parking on the road. I hope you do visit again, the Peaks are very different depending on the season Kind regards Pat Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the heart of Hayfield and just outside of the Peak District National Park, is this historic cottage, The Cottage.

The dwelling dates back to the 17th Century and retains many of its original features, from mullian-style windows to exposed beams, with easy access to amenities and easy access to the many towns dotted throughout the Park; making for a fabulous home-from-home accommodating four people.

After marvelling at the beautiful, stone-built village of Hayfield, park your vehicle in the handy off-road parking space and stretch your legs in the quaint, enclosed front patio.

Enter the attractive property to be dazzled by a rustic sitting room that boasts a toasty gas stove (fuel paid by owner - not visitor) and Smart TV, along with ample seating for you to relax on.

Continue on to the charming kitchen/diner, a space featuring wooden furnishings and fittings, along with fantastic appliances for you to make your favourite meals with.

After the chef of the group has cooked up a tasty dinner, gather your group at the nearby dining table and catch up about your Peaks escapades over a glass of wine.

In the evening, make your way up to an appealing double bedroom with views out to the Pack Horse Gastro Pub, and the twin room overlooking the River Sett.

The first-floor bathroom consists of attractive blue tiling and all the essentials you need to prep for the day, including a bath with shower over; an additional cloakroom can be found downstairs, for extra convenience.

The rear patio is secure for pets, allowing your furry friends to stretch their legs while you enjoy a cold beverage with friends on the sunny patio.

Make the most of the property's fabulous location and enjoy delicious meals at the Pack Horse pub that is only across the road, embark on the Sett Valley trail and go birdwatching in the nearby Bluebell Wood Nature Reserve.

Make your way into the Peak District National Park and walk the beaten path to the mystical Mermaid's Pool, climb the peak of Kinder Scout and hike or cycle the extensive Jacob's Ladder trail.

Chapel-en-le-Firth is home to the renowned Hidden trails, waiting to be explored, along with the Memorial Park where you can enjoy a picnic, or visit the golf club for a game.

Buxton is a great day out, wander through the Pavillion Gardens, view the artwork at The Green Man Gallery and explore Poole's Cavern.

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.

Note: Weekly bookings are to be Saturday to Saturday only.
No personal parcels are to be delivered to the property.
