Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage was a good base for exploring The Peak District. It is a fabulous and comfortable cottage to relax in.”

    Mrs Barton, Bognor Regis, June 2015

    • “Very good accommodation, a very short walk into the town centre, it was lovely not to have to take the car every time we went out. Had excellent transport from Buxton to Manchester etc. There were plenty of restaurants and some lovely old buildings, lots of wonderful walks and interesting places to visit nearby.”

    Mr Burge, Worcester, May 2015

    • “Great accommodation for two people, everything you needed to make you feel at home.”

    Mr Simpson, Chelmsford, March 2015

    • “This property was extremely clean and comfortable. The owners made a real effort to make us feel welcome (e.g. nice welcome bundle) and the location is great for an easy 5-10 minute walk into Buxton. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.”

    Mr Mclaughlin, Lincoln, February 2015

    • “The standard of the property was 1st class. The owners left a superb welcome hamper which was much appreciated. Very nice area for touring Buxton itself which is a lovely town. We would definitely return.”

    Mrs Ludlow, Wisbech, November 2014

    Mrs Seed, Daventry, September 2014

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
