However, don't use 'far' when you are stating a distance. Don't say, for example, that something is 10 kilometres 'far' from a place. You say that it is 10 kilometres from the place or 10 kilometres away from it.

The hotel is just fifty metres from the ocean.

You use far in questions and negative sentences to mean 'a long distance'. For example, if you say that it is not far to a place, you mean that the place is not a long distance from where you are.

That's up in the Cairngorms, which is quite a long way away.

In modern English, 'far' is not used in front of a noun. Don't, for example, talk about 'far hills'. Instead you use distant, faraway, or far-off.

The bedroom has views of the distant mountains.

You also use far in questions and negative sentences to talk about the degree or extent to which something happens.

None of us would trust them very far.
3. used as an intensifier

You use far in front of comparatives to say that something has very much more of a quality than something else. For example, if you say that one thing is far bigger than another, you mean that it is very much bigger than the other thing.

Far more in front of a noun means 'very much more' or 'very many more'.
