Hayfield is an attractive stone-built village on the River Sett. It lies close to Kinder Scout, a moorland plateau that includes the highest point in Derbyshire (636m). Hill-walking, fell-running and mountain-biking are probably the most popular activities for visitors.

Hayfield is surrounded by the Peak District National Park and was the site of the Mass Trespass of Kinder Scout in 1932, a key moment in the history of rights of way in the United Kingdom.

Hayfield was the filming location for many of the village scenes in the BBC TV series The Village (other scenes were filmed in or near Edale, Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith).
