  • "Thank you for a very enjoyable stay."

    Couple of minor points. The radiator valves were mostly closed when we arrived, and therefore despite setting the thermostat up (from the 10c when we arrived) the rooms did not heat up. It took a while to figure this out. Also, the floor in 'boot locker' room at the back gets wet when it rains. Not really a big deal but you should probably look to address it. Otherwise was very nice.

Buxton 4 miles.

Quarry Cottage is a delightful, terraced cottage nestled into the quaint hamlet of Smalldale, near Buxton, ideal for a family or two couples looking to escape to the stunning countryside of Derbyshire.

Upon entry, discover an EV charging port, as well as a tap ideal for washing muddy dogs after hiking through the local scenery.

This is the ideal spot to cosy up for a movie marathon with a hot beverage in hand.

The kitchen/diner encourages guests to cook up a storm, sporting contemporary furniture and ample amenities to cater to your culinary needs, as well as a table which can be folded out of the way to allow guests more space to cook together.

Outside, dine alfresco on the gravelled area, making the most of the evening sunshine and toasting to your getaway with a glass of fizz.

When the day draws to a close, freshen up in the stylish ground-floor bathroom, taking a relaxing soak in the tub, or a warm shower.

Snuggle up in one of the two well-presented bedrooms, able to be configured to fit your requirements, choosing between a king-size and a zip/link twin.

Smalldale is a rural location resting on the outskirts of Buxton.

Obtain any necessities from the shops in the spa town of Buxton, and browse the independent stores, before taking a break for coffee and cake at one of the numerous cafés, and there are also a great many restaurants and pubs available.

Visit the Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, the Edwardian Opera House, which presents theatrical and musical productions all year long, and for those looking for adventure, the limestone cave network of Poole's Cavern and the treetop zip wire course at Go Ape Buxton are just a few of the attractions that make Buxton a great day trip.

Stop by St Anne's Well to try Buxton's famed water, then wander around The Pavilion Gardens in the late afternoon to take in the town's beautiful Georgian architecture.

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.
