A gorgeous little cottage at the centre of some great Peak District walking country.
Hayfield Derbyshire SK22 2HS 01865 594 349
Sett Cottage is a cosy little hideaway on the edge of the village
of Hayfield in the High Peak area of Derbyshire. The cottage is lovely and snug and has a log burner in
the living room. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and an
impressive free-standing copper bath, and there's a smaller bedroom with
a smaller bed – couples will love the cottage, and good friends will
find it nice and cosy for four (though you'll have to fight for the
master bedroom...). It is an old quarry worker's home so beware – the
steps up to the front door and stairs inside are quite steep…mind your
Cottage is pet friendly – who knows, maybe you'll take your dog along to
the local sheepdog trials, held every year in autumn.
This is great walking country – in fact, in April 1932, Hayfield was the location of the famous mass trespass onto Kinder Scout by The Ramblers Association, to get walkers' more rights of way, so it's got something of an historic hiking pedigree. You might also recognise it as the location for the second series of the BBC's The Village. Walks and trails nearby include the Pennine Way, Kinder Scout and the Reservoir, the Sett Valley Trail (a two-mile greenway route for cyclists) and the Pennine Bridleway. For those who don’t want to roam too far, there are some interesting galleries to wander around in this popular village, a lovely riverside stroll, and plenty of restaurants and pubs. The cultural pursuits of Buxton – which hosts annual opera, cinema and literature festivals – are just a short drive away.
