Kinder Path Cottage proved to be absolutely brilliant accommodation: it had everything, in addition to glorious views of the Kinder Scout area of the Peak District. The cottage was comprehensively and thoughtfully equipped, spotlessly clean and all in tip-top condition. It was a credit to its owner, who proved hugely welcoming and very helpful. The "cottage book" of helpful information was the best I have come across. We highly recommend this accommodation - not least because, in addition to everything else, it was barely two minutes' walk from the friendly shops and pubs in this charming village of Hayfield. Ten out of ten!
We have just returned from a wonderful valentines weekend in kinder path cottage.
The cottage is a lovely size, cozy and well presented. I especially loved the log fire. The cottage is well stocked an maintained with all the essentials you need for a short break or holiday.
The cottage is in walking distance of hayfield village.Which has 3 lovely pubs and a village shop.
For a short and enjoyable walk i recommend walking from hayfield upto hayfield reservoir and across snakes path and down to hayfield village.
If your feeling energetic. The walk from edale upto kinder scout was amazing but defiantly challenging at times. We started from edale following the pennies way. Upto Jacobs ladder which was the most challenging part, But rewarding once you have reached the top. The views are incredible. Throughout the walk the climates were forever changing from a cold sunny winters day to high winds and we even experienced a heavy snow shower across the top.
I would defo recommend allowing atleast 4/5 hrs for this walk with walking boots a rucksack, water , warm clothes, waterproofs and a hat and gloves. A map and even a compass If you have one. Preparation is key.
What a fantastic, well stocked cozy little cottage, even though it was wet most of the week the location of this gem meant we still had a wonderful holiday. Superbly stocked for a self catering break and within 5-10 min walk of 4 pubs all providing excellent food and hospitality. Not forgetting the beautiful countryside and walks right on our doorstep. Only had to use the car once in a week to visit a supermarket,(there are small shops in the village for bits) our daughter was 7 and agree that it's not suitable for a child much younger due to the landing layout upstairs. The village play area was also 1st class. Perfect, we will return.

Excellent. Ideal for three weekend walkers. Very good bistro-pub 500 metres to left, good choice of pubs and cafes 500 metres down the hill into town. Several small shops to provide all your-self-catering needs. Thoroughly recommended.
The cottage is in an ideal location within the lovely village of Hayfield. Just take yourself,clothes and your walking shoes, everything else is provided.
