Make a holiday cottage in Hayfield your home away from home

There is nothing like some time spent in rolling green countryside, breathing in the fresh air, to recharge the batteries. If visitors are looking to get active in the great outdoors, a Hayfield holiday cottage will make the perfect base for a rural getaway. Hayfield is a small village in Derbyshire, located on the edge of the Peak District National Park and in the Sett Valley. Long ago, this area consisted mainly of woodland and was a popular hunting spot for rulers in the Norman era. Today, most of the forest has been cleared but there is still plenty of woodland, especially along the banks of the River Sett. The area is therefore a paradise for active travellers, with a wide variety of outdoor pursuits to offer.

HomeAway accommodation ranges from cosy cottages and apartments ideal for couples to large properties that sleep as many as 18, perfect for a family reunion or a teambuilding weekend. Most holiday cottages in Hayfield also welcome children, so it's a great option if visitors want to get some time away with the kids.

Things to do

-Outdoor pursuits: Hayfield is a popular destination for walking, horse-riding and mountain-biking, with several trails in the area. The Sett Valley Trail, for instance, stretches over 2.5 miles from Hayfield to New Mills and is an easy, pleasant walk along a disused railway route. As there's no car traffic, it’s a wonderful place to teach the kids how to ride a bicycle. Guests can also book a pet-friendly Hayfield holiday home; four-legged friends will love this trail too.

- Fell running: If walking or cycling is just not physically demanding enough, be sure to try out some fell running. Hayfield and the surrounding area host several fell races throughout the year. They vary in distance and degree of difficulty and ten of them make up the Hayfield Championship, in which competitors earn points based on results in each race. If all ten are completed, visitors may even be awarded the Hayfield Grand Slam.

-Nature: The fact that so much of the countryside around Hayfield can be roamed is thanks to a 1932 event known as the mass trespass of Kinder Scout, which set in motion changes in legislation. Hayfield is often called the gateway to the moorland plateau of Kinder Scout, which lies about two miles to the east. Apart from the great walking and wildlife-spotting to be had here, travellers can also go rock climbing on the cliffs. In winter, Kinder Downfall, a waterfall with a drop of just under 100 feet, sometimes freezes and provides the perfect spot for ice climbing.

-Entertainment: With pubs dating back centuries, charming restaurants and little shops, the village itself is well worth exploring too. It was one of the locations for the acclaimed TV series The Village, which might explain why some of the streets and buildings look so familiar. If a Hayfield holiday apartment is rented around the second Saturday in May, guests can check out the annual May Queen event. It’s the oldest-running event of its kind in the country, and the festivities include a parade, a fair, shows and the perfect excuse to dress up in a colourful costume.

Weather in Hayfield

Hayfield is quite humid throughout the year, with between 11 and 14 rainy days per month and most rain falling in winter. Summer days can be pleasantly warm, with average highs of 19°C in July and August. In winter, the area is cold, with daytime temperatures of around 7°C, which drop to around 1 °C at night. Snow and frost are not uncommon in winter.

Travel to Hayfield

Hayfield is situated a little less than 20 miles east of Manchester Airport, from which it’s easy to hire a car and make the drive of about 40 minutes. Visitors can also travel in by bus or take a train to nearby New Mills, three miles to the west, or Glossop, 4.5 miles to the north, and then take a bus or taxi to a holiday cottage in Hayfield.

Cottage had everything we needed. particularly liked the log fire. We are happy to recommend this property and will stay here again in the future.

This cottage is an excellent base for towns - Sheffield, Huddersfield, Bradford etc. BUT! More enticingly a base for the Peak District and West Yorkshire for a variety of walks. The owners seem to have thought of just about everything. Very comfortable, the master bedroom being particularly large and attractive wi en suite. The owners Derek and Angela live next door and could not be more welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended.
