At the heart of the Peak District National Park, our Buxton
cottages promise an unforgettable holiday for all the family.
Let's start with a tour of the town, once a Roman spa town
and brimming with architectural delights. There's the splendid
Crescent and Dome from the Georgian period, the elegant Palace
Hotel from Victorian times, many fine examples from Northern Arts
and Crafts, and the Old Hall Hotel where Mary Queen of Scots once
stayed to take Buxton's healing waters.
Opera, pop, literature - whatever takes your fancy when you book a Buxton cottage!
The Buxton Opera House has been beautifully restored and offers
a huge variety of entertainment - musicals, pantomimes, drama,
comedy and festivals including puppets, opera and literature,
Gilbert & Sullivan and the fun-filled Fringe.
Another wonderful structure is Cavendish Arcarde, original site
of the hot baths and today home to exclusive shops housed in the
old treatment rooms. There are lots of other shops too, as well as
a traditional market on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Stroll around the Pavilion Gardens, with its manicured grounds
and serpentine paths. Look out for local fairs and exhibitions, the
monthly farmers' market or tap those toes at an afternoon tea
dance. Step inside the Great Dome, once a magnificent stable block
and now the local university centre-piece - it's the largest
unsupported dome in the UK, with forty-four pillars!
What else? The Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, Buxton Country
Park featuring Go Ape and Poole's Cavern, Buxton Mineral Water
and, of course wonderful walking in every direction - everything
you could wish for on a Buxton cottage holiday!
