  • "We absolutely love Shenton cottage."

    It felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. It is obvious a lot of time and love has gone into this family cottage and we wish to say thankyou to Jane, Steve and Johnny (the dog) for allowing us to use your lovely property. The cottage is well furnished, comfortable and has everything you should need. It is very clean, as is the amazing hot tub too. I will definitely recommend and hope to return for a little longer next time.

  • "Absolutely stunning interior and spotlessly clean."

    Located high above Buxton, it has great views of countryside (back) and golf course (front). Lovely information about the history to the property in the Guest Book. Delicious tea-cream awaits you on arrival, all beautifully presented in a bone china tea-set. (We naughtily had ours for breakfast the following morning, and why not?!) A welcome bottle of wine too (we didn't have that for breakfast though!!!) The decor and furnishings are perfect, are the bathrooms. Icing on the cake, a well-maintianed hot-tub, set at a perfect temperature. We only stayed 3-nights but could've easily moved in!!! Jane was great too at communicating information as well as scone-baker. Highly recommend a stay at Shenton Cottage *****

  • "Yet another wonderful week in Shenton Cottage."

    The weather was against us but because of the excellent location of Shenton we still had a lovely week which included trips to Bakewell, Chartwell House and the Monsal Trail. We also took the short walk into Buxton town centre for some lovely meals (Pizza Express, Simply Thai and St Moritz are our favourites). Back at the cottage, we had the relaxing hot-tub (all ready for you on arrival and for the duration of our stay) and the log-burner fire (again, already laid with more wood available) to help us relax outside or inside the cottage. We also agree that the beds are wonderful, very large with warm duvets. There are also lots of lovely little touches which makes this cottage so well equipped. We have already booked again for June 2024. Keith & Elaine

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback Keith & Elaine. It was lovely having you back at the cottage and look forward to seeing you again soon. Take care Thanks Jane & Steve Property Owner

    Jane and Steve are the perfect hosts; they have thought of everything that might contribute to a memorable and restful stay. Nothing is overlooked. You can take advantage of the hot tub the minute you arrive as it is already heated up for you. Similarly, if you fancy settling down in front of a snug fire courtesy of the wood-burning stove, it is already laid for your convenience; you simply need to light it. We are really looking forward to our next stay in September. Keith & Elaine

    . everything we needed and more .. lovely scones and wine upon arrival .. only suggestion would be if more than one car stating next door that they didn’t park outside number 15 where we were staying as we ended up parking in lay-by down the road and the rain was quiet bad so when leaving / loading car to go out we got wetter than would have done if parked outside .. I know if it was me and had two cars I would respect the neighbours and one would have parked down the road

  • "Waited for 2 years for this cottage holiday, due to covid unfortunately it wasn't worth the wait or the money."

    The cottage was very clean and fairly well presented and well equipped, a little dated in areas but generally good. The owners left a cream tea for us on arrival and treats for my dogs which was lovely. However, that is where the good points end sadly. The 'enclosed ' garden was a very low wall around a tiny courtyard, so low at the bottom, even our Pomeranians could jump out! The hotub was overlooked by all the neighbouring gardens and not private at all, we didn't even attempt to use it, the owner says it's private once you are in but you still have to get in and out! The cottage is located next to a busy road which was very noisy all day and night, it kept us awake at night and was not mentioned in the property description which we feel is misleading. The beds were unbearably hard and uncomfortable but I appreciate this is a personal preference thing, just thought something in the middle would suit more people. The owners dog unfortunately barked and howled everytime they went out, the owner said they were moving soon, so might be ok for the future but didn't help my stay. The owners kept walking past the kitchen window to use the shed in the garden, move bins and collect a ball, we found this an unacceptable level of privacy and quite intrusive. Overall we were very disappointed and found the property nothing like it's description and quite misleading, we left and went home 3 days early as we found it not to be the relaxing, stress free holiday we were hoping for. I did complain to the owner who was very sorry but had an answer to everything I complained about, no offer of compensation for the 3 days. The most annoying part is having had the holiday cancelled twice due to covid, we were then charged an extra £91 for the same holiday as prices had gone up! I appreciate this is not anyone's fault, no one saw the pandemic coming but quite rude to expect guests to pay more for the same week, overall unhappy and out of pocket!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment in relation to your recent stay. We have discussed your points at length with the owner, who has advised had they have known of your upset during your stay, they would have done all they could to assist. Beds are incredibly subjective, and one unfortunately doesn't always fit all. We advise that all dogs are supervised during a stay, however we will review the wording to ensure it's correct. As for going to the shed, the owner has confirmed that this is to get cleaning chemicals for checking the hot tub daily which you were informed of. We feel that the photographs and description show a full representation of the property, however we will of course take your comments on board. Lastly, the price increase following your change of dates would have been explained to you at the time of making the change, as this is what our Covid-19 policy offered at the time. Thank you again. Property Owner

    We used the hot tub a couple of times which was a real treat. There were a few things that spoilt it for us but overall a fab place to stay. There was building work going on next door which started at 8am each morning so we weren't able to have a lie in. (Obviously not owner's fault) Pillows were very soft. I think they may have been feather pillows but they didn't give much support. Having said that the mattress itself was very firm and comfortable. Cottage is very well located for travelling in to the Peak District and we would recommend Bakewell if you're looking for somewhere to go.

    We have just spent a wonderful walking holiday in the Peak District and Shenton Cottage was ideal as our base. We highly recommend it. The cottage is very clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped. On arrival, there was a lovely cream tea awaiting us, the log burner was already laid in the very comfortable lounge and the hot tub was up and running. The beds are large and very comfortable. The hosts live next door and while they were very friendly and available if we needed local advice, we hardly saw them. The cottage garden has a very nice water feature and at the end of the day it is lovely looking across the fields and listening to the birdsong. The cottage is in a quiet road opposite Buxton golf course and it’s just a 15-minute walk to the centre of Buxton. We highly recommend the Simply Thai and St Moritz (Italian) restaurants but it’s advisable to book in advance for both. The No. 6 Café (opposite the Opera House) serves a delicious full English breakfast. The cottage is also about 15 minutes by car from some amazing scenic walks. We especially like the walks around the Fernilee and Errwood reservoirs in the Goyt Valley off the road to Whaley Bridge and the Monsal Trail to the east of Buxton. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked our return holiday for next year on the same day we came home; we are really looking forward to rediscovering the delights of Shenton Cottage.

  • "What a way to get rid of the January blues!"

    We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Shenton Cottage. We loved using the fire on the cold evenings, and the kitchen was fully equipped for all our needs and more. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and there was lots of space generally for four adults. The hot tub was the highlight - it was great to relax in after a walk up to Solomon’s Temple. We really appreciated added touches, like the bathrobes and slippers. We would definitely come again.

  • "A very warm welcome from the owners (just next door) including homemade scones on arrival."

    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.

    It was spotlessly clean and with a lovely welcome surprise. There were lots of thoughtful little extra things, which made it special. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, knives, etc. The girls loved the reclining sofa, seems that maybe on my shopping list now. The house was warm and comfortable, and we all very much enjoyed staying. The hot-tub was definitely a hit too. It was lovely that Jane & Steve are next door, and we enjoyed a little natter across the wall, and of course a fuss with Johnny. I would mention that there is some road noise in the front bedroom at night time, but the view across the golf course is very nice when you open the blinds. We had a great time in the lovely Peak District, made even better by having such a lovely home to go back to and use as our base. Thanks Jane!

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.
