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 High Peak District

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.

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

Lovely home, lovely spot!

  • 4 of 5

I Have just spent a week with 6 friends in this lovely family home and beautiful location in the High Peak District. None of our party was familiar with this area prior to our visit. The village of Hayfield is quite idyllic and the location of Spring Bank Cottage is just perfect. The house itself is spacious, clean and well equipped. Beds are very comfortable and we could imagine the basement room being great for a family with children. The outlook over Hayfield Cricket Field is an added bonus during the cricket season as we were able to watch one of their matches on a Saturday afternoon. The owners are quick to respond to any enquiry/query which is very helpful. Unfortunately we did have a problem with a chair breaking. Nevertheless, I and each one of our friends would, without hesitation, recommend Spring Bank Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet but interesting holiday destination. As members of the 'older community' those of us with bungalow legs did manage the stairs with the aid of the strong hand rails! We would definitely return except that we do like to find new places to go and to stay each year but you never know, the temptation to return here might be too strong to resist.

A charming house with impressive views.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house from the moment we walked in. The view from the back - over the cricket pitch, past sloping back gardens and up to the hills and the sky beyond - is restful and restorative. The kitchen is well equipped (we did lots of cooking and even baked bread). Reliable wi-fi was a boon, though the real pleasure of staying in Hayfield is the chance to get out and tramp the hills for hours. (There's a helpful booklet in the Welcome folder detailing five local walks.)

Other assets of the house: three toilets and two showers; the large screen TV in the living room; a radio (nice to have in the kitchen when you're cooking on your own!); a good collection of books; and a very good washing machine. There is easy access - via a path higher up Kinder Road - to the cricket pitch and a children's playground beyond the pitch.

The two local shops supply most basic needs and there is an excellent butcher's shop with local produce. New Mills has a Coop and Glossop has both a Tesco and a Coop. The George and the Royal are justly popular pubs.

Chris, the owner, was prompt in responding to queries. We would happily recommend Spring Bank Cottage to anyone, especially families.

Hayfield is a thriving village and gateway to the High Peak. It is popular with walkers and cyclists since it is at the foot of Kinder Scout and at the end of the Sett Valley Trail. Within a few miles of interesting villages such as Castleton, Edale, Eyam and small towns such as Buxton and Ashborn. Other local attractions are Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Lyme Park.
