    “A really cosy, comfortable and well-appointed apartment in a quiet neighbourhood on the edge of the lovely Peak District town of Buxton.”

    . Kerry was easy to deal with, responsive and friendly and we were sad to leave.

The property

Resting at the base of a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of the historic town of Buxton, is this contemporary-styled apartment, Doves Nest.

Resting all on the first floor and boasting a stylish interior, this beautiful base offers a couple or family of three a desirable location from which to explore the surrounding Peak District and wider Derbyshire.

Park up under the archway of the property before entering up the stairs to discover your home from home; take your pick from one of the two well-presented bedrooms, with both offering plenty of storage space to house you personal belongings, consisting of a master double bedroom and a single, the perfect set up for those travelling with a little one.

Refresh from a day of rambling within the family bathroom, with neutral hues creating a calming aura where you can unwind beneath the bubbles of a luxurious bath.

Step into the living/dining room, where you can sink into the plush seating arrangement before the television to watch a family film, or sit together at the sleek glass-top dining table where you can enjoy a tasty home-made meal, the modest but well-equipped kitchen hosting all the essentials to prepare your favourite meals.

The property benefits from sitting within an idyllic position, with all of the amenities of Buxton just a short stroll away; take a walk to the local shop to pick up some ingredients for an evening snack, or indulge in a traditional pub lunch with plenty to choose from just a stone's throw away.

Spend an afternoon at the nearby Buxton & High Peak Golf Club, the oldest golf course in Buxton and one of the oldest in Derbyshire, it makes the perfect way to unwind, or venture into the centre of Buxton to find the charming Pavilion Gardens, dating back to 1871, here you can find a botanical conservatory, events and fairs, live bands and an arts centre.

Other historic wonders within the town include The Opera House where you can watch a wonderful show, as well as the semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank and The Square; you'll never tire of history while in Buxton.

Visit the Buxton Museum & Art Gallery to learn more about the history, geology and archaeology of the area, or visit the geological delight of the two million year-old natural limestone cave of Poole's Cavern & Buxton Country Park for an adventure like no other.

Venture out to Bakewell to try out its famous tasty pudding of a Bakewell Tart, where you will also find the heritage museum of The Old House, quaint tea rooms and cafés, and easy access to both the attractions of Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House holding their own unique wonders, while exploring the beauty of the Peak District National Park is a must while in the area to experience spectacular scenery along a plethora of walking and cycling routes in every direction.

Close to Macclesfield, Chesterfield, Sheffield and beyond, Doves Nest is a truly fantastic base for exploring this scenic area.

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.
