FAR is usually used in questions and negative sentences:
London isn’t far from Coventry.
Is your job far from your house?
However, in affirmative sentences people usually say “a long way”:
Los Angeles is a long way from New York.
FAR is used in affirmative sentences only when it appears in phrases such as: too far, far away…
The house is too far from any settlements.
The Moon is far away from the Earth.
