    The property was immaculately clean including the outdoor area and hot tub. The owners were very friendly and helpful (we even had fresh strawberries from their allotment), advising of where to go and eat. We had our 2 year old daughter with us to which the owners put up stair gates for our arrival. I have to say that the cottage of perfect for our little one, offering a cot, highchair and the blinds in the bedrooms are black out which is vital for our daughter to sleep at the moment. Personal highlights were relaxing each evening in the hot tub and a glass of wine, log burner and mechanical reclining sofa in the living room for a nice film (smart TV so easy access to Netflix, Amazon prime etc). All rooms are very generous in size and comfort (all seems brand new) and the upstairs shower is very luxurious. The area is very peaceful as it overlooks a golf course and farm fields at the rear (our daughter loved seeing the cows in the field behind the garden). Easy walking distance to Buxton town centre (we did it with a pram in about 15 mins) and could always park directly outside the property. Thanks to the owners for a lovely stay. Would definitely recommend a stay for a relaxing trip to the Peaks.

The property

This two-bedroom, semi-detached, stone cottage is located on the outskirts of Buxton, a charming place to base your holiday, with historic sights to see, and characterful attractions.

Suited for couples, friends or families Shenton Cottage offers a peaceful getaway, your little escape from the hustle and bustle any time of the year.

The interior comprises a sitting room with comfortable recliner chair and a three seater sofa with USB connections, a TV and a multi-fuel stove setting you up for those cosy nights in, should you wish to spend an evening snuggling up in the warmth.

A whitewashed kitchen rests nearby, styled in an almost country fashion, with a dining table ideal for those home cooked meals with views of the garden and beyond.

Follow the stairs up to the next floor and you will be welcomed by two fabulous bedrooms each presented with zip/link options for flexibility, and a homely feel which creates a relaxing sleeping environment.

With views stretching out over the golf course, you can simply wake up to the refreshing scenery, a pleasant backdrop as you ready yourself for the adventures ahead.

Once you have enjoyed everything the interior has to offer, wander outside where you can spend some time on the private patio, a truly beautiful setting to enjoy a bite to eat, a drink or a chill in the hot tub.

Visitors to this precious location can enjoy the magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts.

Less than a minutes walk away is the Buxton & High Peak Golf Club which is open to the public and approximately 10-15 minute walk away is Peak Practice Golf Driving Range.

Buxton is also host to a cinema, a museum and many organised events suitable for all ages as well as hosting Buxton Fringe Festival each year.

A wide range of great local pubs and restaurants are within walking distance or a short drive.

There is also 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.

All you need for a charm-filled getaway.

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.
