“We so enjoyed our short break. We ...”
We so enjoyed our short break. We did come back home a day earlier than planned as the weather forecast was so dreadful. And very glad that we did as there was a real problem on the A34 just north of where we live on our originally planned travel day. Our hosts had advised us that it might be best to cut short our stay and we were very appreciative of this sound local advice. ...

The cottage was gorgeous and we hope to go back again at a different time of year to further enjoy the beauty of the barn and its location.

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 and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
