Overview

About the property

Double bedroom en-suite plus small bedroom and separate wet room bathroom

The Sheep Shack is a former farm stable building sympathetically converted to provide luxurious accommodation with contemporary style and flare. The property combines modern sustainable technologies such as ground source underfloor heating and high levels of insulation with traditional English oak fitting throughout. The main bedroom has en-suite facilities whilst there is the further luxury of a separate wet room bathroom. A stylish contemporary wood burning stove creates extra warmth in the main living area. The Shack is ideal for a romantic break but there is also a small bedroom with bunk beds suitable for children. Visitors can enjoy peace and privacy whilst still being within easy reach of Hayfield village. The Sheep Shack is situated within the Peak Park itself rather than in the village and is ideal for walking, trail or fell running and mountain biking. Many walks are accessible from right outside the front door. Amble down the lane to the local pub or just kick back in front of the fire and relax.

We can arrange mountain bike hire, fell running and hiking routes if needed.

Why Michael Whyatt chose Hayfield

I grew up in this area and bought the farm many years ago. It was a sheep farm run by Harold and Dorothy, brother and sister whose family moved there in the 1920s. They retired and the surrounding land is now farmed by the National Trust. The Sheep Shack was created in 2010 and the farmhouse was restored in 2013.

What makes this cottage unique

Definitely some of the best views in the Peak District but not too far away from the village.

Beautiful, quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely time here. Quiet and uninterrupted other than by the sheep and cows chatting outside! The accomodation has everything you need and was clean and comfortable. Managed some fantastic hill walks without needing the car. Would highly recommend - will return!

We had a wonderful time at the sheepshack and would like to return. Hayfield is a short walk and is a very charming village. There are many walks from the doorstep and the nearest pub. a 5 min walk.

A little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a 3 night break at the Sheep Shack and it was bliss. If you want a quiet, rural retreat this is the place. The house is perfect, has everything you need, comfortable, cosy....i could go on, but you get the message.

Thank you, Michael, for letting us stay at the Sheep Shack. We will return!

Lovely cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short break in the Sheep Shack. The barn conversion is lovely and the location is fantastic - we sat out several times to take in the view. The owner was really helpful in responding to queries ahead of our stay. We'd definitely go again.
