Farlands Cottage is at the end of a long and beautiful lane, up from the pretty village of Hayfield, and it sits right at the foot of Kinder Scout, near the Kinder reservoir. Now, we are not Walkers (with a capital W) but have been utterly beguiled by the on-the-doorstep nature of the hill walks you can do from this property. It is so lovely not to have to get into a car, but wander out and up, and the next thing you know you can't see any sign of human habitation, just the wildness and beauty of the northern Peaks. James, the owner, was hugely helpful in suggesting routes for our wanderings. The cottage itself, one end of James' impressive house, is set in an amphitheatre of mixed woodland, so the birdsong is just lovely in the mornings. It is comfortably furnished, nothing fancy, but all that you need. It can be a bit dark inside, so we loved having a wood fire burning (yes, in August!) and James supplies you amply with fuel. The nearby pub is great for food too. All in all, a really nice place to stay, and the location is pretty unbeatable.
