The property

Buxton 4 miles.

Resting in the quiet hamlet of Smalldale near Buxton on the fringes of the Peak District National Park is 16 Smalldale Cottages, a charming mid-terrace cottage, ideal for a small family or couple wanting to enjoy a peaceful countryside getaway within easy reach of the rugged peaks and rolling countryside of the Peak District National Park.

The property enjoys roadside parking, while the owners offer additional parking on their driveway just opposite, and once you have parked up, make your way up a small set of steps to the front entrance, where you can hang up your coats in the porch, before making your way into the main living area.

The sitting room boasts an inviting leather sofa with matching armchairs, the ideal place to relax and unwind during an evening in front of the fire, with a great book from the bookcase or with a film on the TV.

The kitchen/diner is well-equipped with all the appliances you could wish for during your self-catered stay, with a dishwasher to take care of any washing up and a washer/dryer, should you need to clean clothes after a day exploring the national park.

Head upstairs to catch up on rest in one of two spacious bedrooms; a master double and a twin both offer plenty of storage space for your belongings and share use of the ground-floor shower room, where you can prepare for each day with a refreshing rinse.

Make your way to the rear of the property and along a short lane to the enclosed rear garden, accessed up three steps and through a gate, where your children and four-legged friends can run freely as you sit out on the patio with a glass of wine and enjoy the best of the late afternoon sun, while the summerhouse offers additional seating and a gas fire, making it an ideal cosy spot on a cooler evening.

Venture into the spa town of Buxton to pick up any essentials from the shops, as well as perusing the galleries and enjoying a coffee and cake break at one of its many cafés.

Buxton boasts many attractions that make it a wonderful day out, from the Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, the Edwardian opera house, which hosts theatre and musical performances year-round, and for those seeking adventure, be sure to discover the limestone cave network of Poole's Cavern and try the treetop zip wire course at Go Ape Buxton.

Pay a visit to St Anne’s Well and sample Buxton's well-known water, take an afternoon stroll around The Pavilion Gardens and admire an array of fine Georgian architecture that lines the town.

Take advantage of your proximity to the Peak District National Park, enjoying walking and cycling trails through spectacular countryside, encompassing attractions like the limestone show caves at Blue John Cavern and the peak of Mam Tor, where hikers are rewarded with panoramic valley views from its peak.

The charming villages of Castleton and Matlock Bath are in easy reach, along with the town of Bakewell, known for its iconic pudding, and the stunning estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

With so much adventure available from your doorstep, make 16 Smalldale Cottages the base for your next Derbyshire getaway.

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.
