  • "Bank Cottage is the perfect home from home."

    Great location for everything Buxton has to offer. House, is comfortable with everything you need.

  • "Wonderful cottage in Buxton, close to everything we needed."

    Lots of steps in property, even from room to room, which made it awkward for someone like me being cautious with new hip.Perhaps this should have been in description. Some doors did not shut tight which made it awkward keeping dog from going upstairs given the chance. Would have been nice if garden was more secure for dog too. Cottage clean and tidy and equipped with all we needed. Thanks

  • "House requires desperate TLC and a SERIOUS deep clean."

    Thank you for coming to visit Buxton. We're incredibly proud to have brought one of the oldest buildings in the town back to life, nominated by Sykes for best renovation in 2018. We are glad to receive so much positive feedback but take any concerns seriously. The cottage is always expertly cleaned to meet our very high standards. We love our little piece of history and are glad to have the opportunity to share it. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and well-equipped cottage."

    It was brilliant being in the centre of Buxton. Plenty to do locally - we barely used the car during our weekend break. Would definitely recommend.

    Thanks for the kind words. Bank Cottage is in a great location with plenty right on the doorstep at the same time as being in a little world of its own! We're glad you had a good time in Buxton and hope to see you again. Property Owner

    Well situated in Buxton with everything in easy access. My only small quibble is the water was never hot enough for a bath and the tv is a little small for old eyes! However I would highly recommend Bank cottage.

    Thanks for lovely feedback. Buxton is a great town and we're glad you enjoyed it as much as we do. We'll mention the bath water temperature to our plumber. Hopefully Buxton's medicinal qualities still put a spring in your step! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Bank Cottage."

    Unlike other holiday homes set up for families, this was plenty big enough for 6 adults. Great to have 2 good showers, 2 fridges, king sized beds and plenty of plates, cutlery and kitchen bits. We squeezed 2 small cars on the small strip of private parking round the back of the cottage and used the on-street parking permit for a third car. Really central location with lots to do in Buxton and the surrounding area.

    Thank you! Bank Cottage does seem like the Tardis sometimes with more space than you expect every time you open a door! We're glad you enjoyed your holiday and it would be lovely to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage with the best of Buxton right on the door step."

    The property itself is warm, inviting spacious and comfortable. Absolutely adored the log burner which kept us warm and dried us off during some not so pleasant weather. The kitchen is also well appointed with everything you would need. There are a few places around the property that could do with a little TLC but takes absolutely nothing away from the charm. The back room off the utility also kept our beers at the perfect temperature! The garden is ideal for dogs with it (mostly) fenced off, although our spaniel still managed to chase a bird through the trees into a neighboring garden! We have been making the visit up to Buxton every few years and will check the availability here before anywhere else.

    Thank you! We're afraid that there would be no Buxton water without the Buxton weather so sometimes we just have to stick up an umbrella. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and it would be nice to welcome you and the spaniel back again soon. Property Owner

    Great having a separate utility area for muddy paws! Area behind the cottage isn’t as pretty as the front as it has restaurants/business access area there but it didn’t intrude on our holiday. Great central location for exploring Buxton and surrounding area. Would definitely book again if visiting the area.

  • "Bank Cottage is one of the most comfortable self-catering properties I have stayed in."

    The modern interior is tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The beds were really comfortable with clean duvets and bed linen. There is a superb heating system. We did not need to light the log fire in the sitting-room. When we first arrived, we switched on the electric ‘log burner’ in the kitchen but turned if off almost immediately as it heated the room so quickly. We did not use it again as the central heating system was so efficient. There is a pretty little lawned garden to the front of the cottage with picnic table and chairs, ideal if you have a dog. The garden catches the sun until early evening. The views of the Dome and the Palace Hotel from the upstairs windows are wonderful. The tiny courtyard at the back is nowhere you would want to sit but could presumably store bikes. Bear in mind that this is a property in one of the old parts of Buxton and close to the centre of town. It backs onto the rear of the ‘Ithaca’ restaurant so there are some comings and goings to the rear of the house; however, we heard no noise at all. All windows on the rear of the house have louvred blinds so you don’t have to overlook the less attractive side unless you want to. Considering its proximity to the centre of Buxton, I could not believe how quiet the area is. A steep cobbled slope leads from the front of the house straight down to the Pavilion Gardens and town centre so everything is within easy reach. Unfortunately, we were there just before 17th May so couldn’t eat inside restaurants and cafes but enjoyed coffee and cake outside several times and had takeaways on a couple of evenings. If you want to be within walking distance of cafes, pubs and a wide variety of restaurants and takeaways (French, Italian, Greek, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese), this is the property for you. There is a small but well-stocked Sainsbury’s a couple of minutes walk down the road. A Morrison’s and Aldi are a few minutes drive away and there is a Waitrose in The Springs Shopping Centre in town. A splendid base for all that Buxton and the High Peaks have to offer.

  • "A beautiful cottage, very clean, modern and large accommodation and loved the view from the garden of the Domed Spa Hotel."

    It is only a minutes walk from the stunning park and fine buildings of Buxton, which we walked round every day and never grew tied of. Otherwise it is extremely close to the park which is beautiful and the other surrounding buildings are attractive. The only downside is to the rear of the property which is the back of a restaurant which is not attractive and we had to keep all blinds to the rear of the property down all week and the restaurants air conditioning unit is also extremely loud, there are also rather ugly flats to the side, also fairly loud neighbouring pub. Once we got used to it, it wasn't too bad, but think people ought to be made aware of the surroundings.

  • "Bank Cottage is great."

    It’s a hop skip and a jump from so many great bars and restaurants but it is also tucked away so very quiet. It’s clean, spacious, warm and everything feels a like high standard. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms / kitchen are great. The owners are a phone call away if needed but are not intrusive. They have given thought throughout the house. The area is lovely with so much to discover including Bakewell and Chatsworth House. I would highly recommend this house.

  • "The cottage is so central to Buxton it makes everything that much more accessible."

    Location to pubs, eating establishments, sites and local life meant our stay was that more pleasurable. Our hosts more than made us welcome by having the small things in life close to hand upon arrival. Straightforward instructions to everything from wifi access to stoking up the fire were accurately recorded in the welcome booklet, we even had a visitors permit for the second car we arrived in. The most minor of cristicism could be levelled at small areas of paintwork requiring a quick touch up but that was the smallest distraction from a beautifully arrayed dwelling. Will seek a future visit when occasion arises, for now thank you Bank Cottage and thank you for allowing us access.

    It is the details that make the difference eg at least 12 sets of cutlery so you don't run out. It is also the unseen which has been taken care of - for example, probably the most comfortable mattresses I've experienced in a rental home. 2 min walk from Sainsbury's local, 5 mins from the theatre, cinema and other sights. Perfect location. The visitor's street parking permit worked a treat. Thoroughly recommend.

    We had a very enjoyable stay, only to be ruined by the harsh weather that made us depart early by a couple of days in the hope of getting home before we got snowed in! The cottage was absolutely beautiful, couldn't fault it at all. Infact, we have booked to return in September of next year when hopefully the weather will be much better! It has all of the mod cons, very clean and situated in a perfect location for places to be reached by foot. The couple that owned the cottage were very friendly and approachable, even walked from where they lived to deliver us some wood and an electric fire to keep us warm due to a frozen pipe which made the heating system fail. If it wasn't for the harsh weather it would of been perfect. I would highly recommend this cottage.

    The interior is relaxing and warm which is perfect for a calming week in the Peaks. We took our three young children and they loved the space playing happily in the front room and on the table in the dining room with their toys. The front garden is a good size and gated so the kids were safe in there. They had a travel cot and highchair ready for us which made packing much easier for us. The cottage is also really well equipped and practical. The location is superb being just moments away for the amenities of upper buxton and just a short walk to the pavilion gardens. The gardens were brilliant for the kids with a fantastic playground, a duck pond and a miniature train to ride on. The pavilion cafe was fantastic and very reasonably priced. They dealt well with my awkward diet (no dairy or soya) and the soft play area kept the children entertained so we could have a coffee in peace. The art in the pavilion is great too. We ordered Thai takeaway one evening (the one next to the fish and chip shop in upper buxton) and we were really impressed with the quality.

About the location

BUXTON

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.
