  • "This was out third stay at Beas Cottage and we couldn't wait to get back there."

    Its the perfect location for exploring the Peak District, you can walk to the summit of Kinder Scout across Middle Moor located just behind Beas Cottage,1.5 hours of hiking after leaving Beas cottage and we were on top of the Kinder Plateau enjoying the stunning views across the Peak District. We also took the short 20 minute drive to the pretty village of Castleton and explored Mamtor ,Lose Hill and Cave Dale, well worth a visit. After a full day walking in the hills its lovely to come back to the comfy, clean Beas cottage with its lovely views of the Lantern pike hill, its a very relaxing place to stay and unwind, with very friendly helpful neighbours and only a short walk into Hayfield for a great selection of pubs and cafes selling fantastic food. Cant wait for our next stay at Beas!!!

  • "The holiday cottage was compact and homely and had beautiful views over the hills surrounding it ."

    It felt like an escape from our other pressures and some of the neighbours were very helpful about the surrounding areas and lots of leaflets in cottage too . Parking at the cottage was reasonable, and we were shown by a helpful neighbour how to access property behind ,as to the front is a pretty busy road, so difficult with shopping and dogs . It would have been useful to have some basic pointers about useful info, as to how to work the boiler, use hob and recycling or bin facilities.The manuals were in a drawer, but I for one struggled with the convector hob , gave up one night but eventually got it to work . For dog owners ,they need to be prepared to lock front door and take dogs out on lead to garden that is set up high at the back..up 2 sets of steps ,this was not an issue for us,but could be if less active . The bonus was the rural setting was really lovely . The beds were comfortable enough and towels and linen provided.. Possibly the sofa and chairs needed to be a bit bigger or something for sprawling, but yet again the cottage is quite small for larger furniture .Many thanks, we enjoyed our stay and the purple heather on the hill behind was in full glory ..

  • "A characterful little cottage outside Hayfield."

    lovely views of Lantern Pike, and an ideal location for getting out onto the moord and hills. THe cottage was comfortable if a bit basic, but decent value for money. It's on a main road, and the off-road parking is 30 yards or so down the road, which made entering the cottage with bags etc on arrival a bit more difficult than usual, but easy to get used to. We had an issue with the TV and BT Internet but owner very helpful. We had a great week. It's a perfect place to stay for keen walkers!

  • "When we arrived the house had not been cleaned or laundry changed for the new occupancy and it took some while to contact either the owner or Sykes about this."

    we were than (at 7pm) asked to 'go to the pub or for a meal' until 10 oclock to let someone attend to clean. this was not acceptatble . we remained in the house and managed the sheets. We did receive compensation but of course this did upset the initial feel of our holiday. There are limited kitchen provisions eg no baking trays, if there had been 4 people there would not be enough matching crockery for them and the neighbour had to deliver initial toilet roll and washing up liquid. Visitors should note that although dogs are accepted the garden is not secure and therefore it is difficult to let the dog out and notices in the garden are discouraging of dogs.

  • "The cottage wasn’t that clean, the floor needed work and it was bare floorboard which were polished but there was quite big gaps and in them and were uneven especially in the bathroom."

    The front garden wasn’t well maintained at all and very overgrown and you kept getting pricked by the sharp plant which had overgrown so you brushed past it every time you went in and out of the front door. The location is nice but due to it being on a busy road it would be good to look at better sound insulation

  • "Beas Cottage is in the perfect location for exploring the beautiful village of Hayfield and the surrounding stunning countryside."

    It's a lovely, beautifully decorated comfy cottage, we felt at home as soon as we walked through the front door, the neighbours were really friendly and offered us advise on places to eat and where to go hiking . The path that takes you across Middle Moor, Kinder Reservoir, William Clough and up Kinder Scout begins just a short walk from the cottage. Highley recommended, we have already booked a return trip for later this year to Beas Cottage, cant wait!!!

  • "Beas cottage was in a lovely location for exploring, we had everything we needed for our stay."

    The cottage was very clean and tidy, we were sad to leave. My only suggestion would be comfier seating in the lounge, not that this is a huge deal as we were out enjoying the high peak all week. The neighbours were friendly and welcoming too. Will definitely use here again when we make the trip up to visit family and friends. Would definitely recommend.

    Great for walking and exploring peak district. Cottage nice and cosy, although not the cleanest. Other than that overall experience was great. Thank you.

  • "We needed a cottage because we were having building work done at home."

    So it met this need. However we did not find the cottage dog friendly. The front garden is ungated and leads on to a very busy road (lots of traffic noise and no pavement). The back has a very small yard which you exit via steep stone steps. One of our dogs has a ligament problem and had to be carried out. We also got quickly informed by neighbors that dogs are not encouraged at the back of the property and that dogs are not permitted on the little piece of grass at the rear. Suggesting that this is a dog friendly property is a gross exaggeration and need to be removed from the listing. Also no bedside lamps were available and the shower room was not well finished. We only paid £372 for the week so it was cheap and cheerful and got the job done. Had we paid the normal full price you'd be hearing from our solicitors.

  • "Great location with very friendly neighbours."

    Great access into the Peak District. The cottage could do with sprucing up, and it wasn’t the cleanest place we’ve stayed in, the settee has seen better days. We took our dog and would have appreciated a vacuum cleaner being available, so that his hair etc didn’t build up.

  • "Positives Good location, beautiful views from windows, very comfortable bed & seats in lounge."

    Good selection of crockery, cutlery & glassware. Loads of towels. Negatives No Welcome Pack (Visitors Book, Local Information [e.g. Contact Numbers - Doctors, Restaurants, Vets, etc]). No drawers in either bedroom for socks, underclothes etc. No trouser hangers in wardrobes. Old used washing up sponge (untidy under sink), no idea where to put waste, except glass. Lounge was quite cold, either needs a larger radiator or extra heating (convector heater). Ideal for a couple or small family, particularly if the second bedroom had bunk beds instead of a double bed.

  • "A lovely cottage, warm and welcoming."

    We recieved a lovely welcome from the neighbours who gave us some advice on walking routes around the area and recommended the local pub, the lantern pike, for a meal. The cottage was fully equipped with everything you could need and also has a washer for when you go and get muddy. We've already recommended to friends and wouldn't hesitate in going back.

  • "The cottage is lovely and well equipped in terms of bedding, towels, kitchenware etc."

    It is on a busy main road with no pavement (as stated in the description of the cottage) but there is access from the back of the property to the car parking space so this was not an issue at all. The cottage has amazing views and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. There are places to walk dogs without needing to drive anywhere and dog friendly pubs within walking distance.

  • "We have used Sykes for our last four holidays and the other cottages were fine, this one however was poorly equipped and tatty."

    There we no finishing touches, no welcome pack or instructions and not even any soap in the bathroom. Access was not easy as the cottage has steep stairs at the rear and a busy main road down steep stairs at the front, both not ideal with a dog on a lead. The wifi was really good however but apart from that it certainly was not a comfortable cottage.

  • "The cottage was as described and was clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    It was also well located for the surrounding countryside and walks and close to amenities. The only negative is the cottage is located on a busy road making it noisy from the traffic. Otherwise it's a great, dog friendly cosy retreat. The neighbour at number 14 was very friendly and accommodating and allowed us to park 2 cars outside his property (the agreement is only for 1) and was also generally helpful.

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.
