Very Good

“A lovely holiday home in a beautiful area”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2017

We looked for a place from which we could explore the Peak District and also visit Manchester easily. The Sheep Shack is a very nice holiday home, located outside the village Hayfield, on a beautiful and rural, quiet location. It has all equipment you need for the kitchen and bathroom, and also a tv-set with bluray/dvd+movies and a high quality audio-set. The furniture (eating table+chairs, the sofa, garden-bench) could use a replacement. The Sheep Shack is a place we would love to come back to in the future!

“Perfect accommodation and location”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2013

Warm, clean and modern. Well equipped . Good communication with owner and dates changed with ease. Setting provides wonderful views and perfect for walking to kinder scout.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2013

We spent a weekend at the Sheep Shack in early September and will definitely be back. It is warm and cosy whilst being light and spacious with lots of lovely touches. The cottage has been decorated and supplied to a high standard that felt more like a home than a holiday let. Being able to walk up to Kinder Scout (or in any direction) from the front door is great, and being set apart from the nearby town of Hayfield makes it feel like a real escape. I can't wait for the next visit.

“Perfect !”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2011

I stayed in this cottage with my 2 young daughters in late august so we could explore Kinder Scout. The Cottage exceeded our expectations on all counts ; the quality and finish to the accommodation is exceptional and the layout works really well, it had the feel of a small "bijou" hotel especially with the magnificent wet room and modern wood burner in the lounge area ; the views are wonderful and the local pub is just a stroll away ; I would highly recommend this place and intend to return with my wife and children later this year.

“A beautiful retreat in an idyllic setting”

Reviewed 6 May 2011

My partner and I had a 3 night stay in the Sheep Shack recently and have already booked our second visit! It's hard to put into words how beautiful the local scenery is and how perfectly this holiday home fits into it. The Sheep Shack is fitted out with modern and sleek furnishings which compliment the well balanced mix of the old farm building with new design. We arrived after a busy week at work and were instantly filled with a sense of relaxation and luxurious living. We ate in 'The Sportsman' pub which is just 10mins walk from the property. The meal was pleasant with no real fault to note, however we will be trying 'The Pack Horse' on our next visit. The local village (Hayfield) does not have a cash point but most places accept cards. I cannot recommend this property enough - if you are looking for a relaxing getaway with beautiful scenery and a very high standard of accommodation, look no further!

“Perfect Retreat”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2010

Just home from a fantastic weekend staying in the Sheep Shack. The accommodation was clean, well thought out, comfortable and stylish, a superb renovation with nice touches such as the windows in original and quirky places. Nice touches included a wide selection of movies and music on the quality entertainment systems, basics in the fridge, well appointed kitchen, warm on arrival [the under floor heating was greatness], safe storage shed to lock bikes in, good local information [and a friendly farmer next door] and a generally high level of comfort all around. The location of the Sheep Shack is perfect for mountain biking, trail running, hiking and simply chilling out in the beautiful countryside. In the village we visited 2 pubs, one was quiet, had a good menu and quiet ambiance, the other was more of a wine bar, fancier menu and music, several other pubs we didn't have time to visit [on this trip] so something for everyone. This weekend it was just the two of us, the accommodation wasn't 'too big' for a romantic weekend, but we plan to come back with the children [2 in bunk beds and room for a third in a pull out bed] or with a few friends for a fun weekend break. There is lots to do in the area to suit all tastes and desires. The Sheep Shack is a perfect base from which to explore or simply enjoy a tranquil and peaceful break. We highly recommend it.

“Fantastic getaway Break”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2010

We arrived Saturday afternoon to the Sheep Shack, the sun was out and the skies were Blue which straight away gave us the most fantastic sights of the landscape. We were privileged to be the first guests into this grade 2 listed barn conversion. The layout of the barn is excellent and the interior compliments the barn. The log burner was a huge bonus to which we lit in 30 minutes not that we needed it as the underground heating was ample enough to warm the building. We bought food supplies with us however Hayfield has all the facilities once would expect, including 5 pubs. We had a meal in the packhorse which was nice however suggest you book. We walked from the barn which took about 25 minutes to Hayfield suggest you take a torch for on the way back as there is no lighting for the last half a mile or so. The barn has all the mod cons one would need and also a outside shed for bikes and walking kit etc.. Although we only spent 48 hours at the Sheepshack We could quite happily live there. I have recommended this retreat to my friends and family so I suggest you get booking soonest. Thank you for a great weekend.
