a. It was a few yards too many away.
b. It was a few too many yards away.


Are both sentences grammatically correct?

Are they both natural?

Many thanks

Yes and yes, as far as I'm concerned.

I like "b." If I was using t "a", I'd probably say "a few yards too far away" rather than "a few yards too many away". Not sure if that's correct, but it's just how it works...in my head.
