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.
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.
Definitely some of the best views in the Peak District but not too far away from the village.
An absolutely lovely space to spend a few days away from it all. A beautifully renovated property containing everything we needed and more than enough information provided including maps of the surrounding area which were useful for a long walk out to Kinder Scout. The wood burning stove was perfect in the evening and the kitchen was well equipped for our needs. Michael provided us with all the information we needed prior to arrival and our stay went off without a hitch. Would thoroughly recommend.
Beautiful accommodation, stunning scenery. What a perfect holiday weve had,didnt know what to expect but loved it,wasnt small in any way and loved the windows.Bathrooms were stunning and wet room was ideal.Evenings were spent watching the sun and clouds on the peaks with a glass of wine,,we shall definitely be back
Just love the place. Love nothing more than locking the door, getting a fire going, and being able to have the rest of the world just bugger off for a couple of days. No phone, no internet, no email, no traffic .... lovely !!
You can always pop down to The Lamb or Sportsman if you're desperate for a human voice and don't want to cook.
Can't think of a better place ..... love it.
Ein schöner Ort um auszuspannen und Kraft zu tanken. Das Haus bietet einem fast alles was mir wichtig ist. Das einzige was ich vermisst habe war das Internet. Aber sonst war alles Perfect. Die Räume waren nicht zu klein und die Badezimmer sind modern und sauber. Auch in der Küche habe ich nichts vermisst. Es war für mich der perfekte Urlaub um mich vom Alltagsstress zu erholen. Dieses Haus hat 2 Schlafzimmer, wobei das eine eher für Kinder gedacht ist, in diesem Zimmer steht ein Etagenbett. Deshalb auch wunderbar für eine kleine Familie. Oder für ein Pärchen. Nicht zu empfehlen für Menschen die Probleme mit Treppen haben. Aber ansonsten top. Gerne wieder mal.
Superbe lieu, fidèle au descriptif, on se sent dans un cocon dans la chaleur du poêle, avec un match de cricket que l’on commente au pub du village devant une pinte et la campagne environnante qui invite aux ballades, on a qu’une idée y revenir pour un plus long séjour .
Superb place, true to description, you feel in a cocoon in the heat of the stove, with a cricket match we commented at the village pub over a pint and the surrounding countryside that invites ballads, was a idea to come back for a longer stay.
The 'Sheep Shack' is located on the lower slopes of Kinder Scout, approximately 1.5 miles from Hayfield village in the Peak District National Park. It is surrounded by a large area of open country and is excellent for walking, running and mountain biking. The local pub is approximately 0.5 mile away and Hayfield village is approximately 1.5 miles. Local attractions include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and the caverns of Castleton.
