About Family Reeve

We've lived on and off in Hayfield since the 1980s, although now for some time living abroad we make frequent visits back. On arriving, we always feel instantly at home. There is something about the place. Our 3 children, now teenagers, spent their early years in Hayfield, and we all retain very strong ties.

Family Reeve purchased this house in 1994

Why Family Reeve chose Hayfield

We had been looking for a family home, and were lucky to find SBC which combined a great location with the possibility to create a home for a growing family. We did a lot of work from top to bottom before it was ready. Our aim was to maximise the space and views whilst retaining its character. We continue to love coming back to the house and have made ongoing improvements a priority. Most recently, we have refitted 2 bathrooms and added an en suite on the top floor.

What makes this house unique

You can't get more central than Spring Bank Cottage, literally a short step from the shops, the restaurants and the pubs This, combined with the exceptional views make it really one of very few large houses which offer both easy access and a spectacular setting.

With 3 new bathrooms and superfast wifi Spring Bank Cottage combines location, space and supreme comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely weekend with all the family. The weather was wet and windy for most of the time, but it cleared for part of Sunday so we managed a late morning walk (one of our favourites up to the reservoir, turn left and then back into Hayfield from the moor). The house was nice and warm so we turned the radiator settings down. The grandchildren loved the downstairs playroom.

Fabulous house in a great village

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week here. We were a party of six adults and one baby. The house is spacious and very comfortable. The garden room was well used by the boys who wanted to carry on talking after us oldies and the baby were tucked up in bed. It is a great space and far enough away from the bedrooms to not disturb those early to bed or late to get up! The lounge was cozy, comfortable and practical with amazing views. We found the dining arrangement easily manageable. The kitchen was very usable and sociable as it was close to the living area. The double room overlooking the cricket green on the first floor was ideal for my daughter with plenty of space for a travel cot and still room to move around. The other bedrooms were also a good size. The loft bedroom was very light, spacious and modern. The en suite was beautiful, and I loved the transluscent shower wall. However, a door between the bedroom and en suite would be a welcome addition. The garden and garden furniture were great and we had a fantastic sunny Sunday afternoon out there drinking Pimms and watching the cricket.

There are a lot of stairs (it does state it is over four floors ) but, as it is the Peak District, and we were there to go walking, that was not a problem. There are plenty of walking routes straight from the front door, some of which are pushchair friendly although we mostly used the baby carrier. There is a travel cot and stair gate and the accomodation was suitable for our 8 month old grandaughter. Toddlers would need to be closely supervised as the stairs are steep. The availability of a washing machine was very appreciated too.

The local shops and pubs were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely meal at the Pack Horse Pub and would recommend it.

We would happily return here again and feel it is ideal for a family or group of friends.

Thank you, Christine and Neville, for letting us use your lovely house.

Good property that would be even better with a few small changes

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderfully situated within Hayfield. The location gives great access to the Peak District, as well as the city of Manchester.

The property has 4 floors with rooms that are quite spacious and comfortable. It can easily meet the needs of a larger group (we were with 4 adults and 3 small children), although to be perfect for such a larger group, a few small changes should be made, most importantly a larger refrigerator in the kitchen, or at least an additional one in the basement, as the current (only) one in the kitchen fits under the kitchen worktop and won't hold enough to last a party of 8 adults much more than a single day, although there is a freezer in the basement. The kitchen itself is spacious and allows for some good social cooking!

If staying with 8, however, getting everyone around the dining table will be a bit of a challenge again; it will comfortably seat 6, but not 8 adults.

The living room on the lowest floor is a great playing area for children, but is a bit dank unless heated so can be a bit unpleasant to sit in for longer periods of time. All of the bedrooms and beds are fine; no complaints there. We did find it a bit odd that the en-suite bathroom on the top floor had no door at all, so the toilet is visible at all times. The shower also has no door/curtain, so you have to be a bit careful not to flood the bedroom.

What definitely could improve is the cleaning; all visible surfaces were mostly clean, although not spotless, but in the living room on the lowest floor we found half bags of crisps half buried in the sofas. I have no problems with some areas getting a bit less attention, but this could attract unwanted visitors if left unattended.

Throughout our stay, we had a few minor issues, and the owner was absolutely wonderful in trying to arrange a solution for us, even though she was on holiday herself at the time; she is clearly dedicated to her guests, responds quickly and is very friendly.

All in all we had a great time here and would gladly stay in Spring Bank Cottage again, even more so if the few minor issues above are addressed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and for your feedback. We are pleased you liked the house and the location, and will follow up on your suggestions. We wanted to mention that we advertise the house for 7 + cot, but were able to accept your booking for the 8 guests since 3 of you were under 3 years old!. We think the house comfortably accommodates 7, but we'll certainly look into changing or adding another fridge. Based on feedback, we purposely keep the heating turned down in the garden room, we it leave it to guests to adjust as necessary, it very quickly warms up when needed. We're actually very proud of the new en suite in the top bedroom, it is designed as a contemporary wet room, and we have encountered similar configurations in boutique hotels. However, we'll note your comments and take stock. We would be very happy to welcome you back to Spring Bank Cottage. Christine and Neville Reeve

Very comfortable and an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Spring Bank Cottage is a spacious comfortable cottage that made a great base for our annual college girls reunion! We did a couple of great walks from the door and it is only a two minute walk to the welcoming pubs in the village. Many thanks Christine.

Excellent properly well located in a fantastic village

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us had an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. It is perfectly located in the most fabulous village with several excellent places to eat and explore nearby - our favorite was the Pack Horse but enjoyed them all.

We would all happily return and stay at this property again
