A guide to our carer-assisted walks and places of interest – Hayfield

Hayfield is a picturesque Derbyshire village situated in the ‘Dark Peak’ area of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by beautiful countryside and offering a variety of walks to suit walkers of different abilities. Although Hayfield is at the foot of the Peak District’s highest peak, Kinder Scout, and surrounded by hills, fairly easy walking can be enjoyed along the Sett Valley Trail, with a very good level path towards New Mills. Walking in the opposite direction takes you through the beautiful wooded valley of the River Kinder. Walking steeper paths from here lead past Kinder Reservoir and Kinder Scout or onto the Snake Path with stunning views across the heather moorlands and Kinder Scout. Hayfield is a great place to start a walk to enjoy the beautiful woodland and hills of the dramatic Dark Peak scenery or to enjoy a stroll around the village itself with its old stone cottages.
