About the neighbourhood
The Sheep Shack is in a great location on the lower slopes of Kinder Scout, just outside Hayfield village ('The Village' in the BBC drama) in the Peak District National Park. It is very close to the starting point of the famous mass trespass of Kinder Scout.
There are many paths and trails nearby. It is an ideal location for hiking, mountain biking and exploring the Peak District.
Nearest railway stations: New Mills (30 minutes by rail from Manchester City Centre).

How to get there
Airport: Manchester International: 32.0 km
Railway: New Mills Central and New Mills Newtown: 8.0 km
From Hayfield village take Kinder Road passing The Sportsman pub in your left after 1/2 mile. Then take the first right turn after further 1/4 mile over the bridge and stay left on tarmac road alongside the river. After 1/4 mile turn left into the lane signed ‘Hill Houses’ (it says walkers only but ignore that). The Sheep Shack is at the top of the lane on the right.
