  • "A wonderful cottage, full of character and for comfort, a home from home."

    I could only give four star for facilities simply because of the parking which could get tricky in high season.

    Hello Elaine. Thank you for the feedback. Our cottage is located on one of the oldest streets in Buxton - hence the road being a single track lane. We are glad you enjoyed the cottage, it’s such a shame we can’t do any thing about the parking. Hope to see you again in the future :) Property Owner

  • "What a lovely cottage, super clean and a fantastic location close to the town for shopping and brunching, and the park for little ones."

    Wonderfully spacious lounge with great quality, comfy sofa and huge TV. Very well equipped kitchen, sorry if you find all the sharp things moved higher up from our kid-proofing! Very thoughtful to leave a gift basket with bubbly, biscuits (eaten immediately lol!) and jam, plus milk and butter in the fridge, and cool packs in the freezer - what a great host! Would have preferred a washing machine to a dishwasher but that's just us with our one year old getting into all sorts of scrapes! Amazing king sized main bed, very comfy mattress and luxury sheets, and very nice to have very posh handwash in the excellent, super warm shower room (no bath, bring a little one for tiny ones). Thought the twin room would be better with bunk beds as quite small, but still a lovely room. We really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it. Thank you so much for a fantastic, relaxing stay.

    Hello Claire. Thank you so much for the feedback. We do try our best to ensure our guests have a lovely stay in Ardeevin Cottage. With regards to the dishwasher/washing machine, it was recommended to us from Sykes to have a dishwasher over a washing machine, as that is what majority of guests are looking for! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. All the best! :-) Property Owner

  • "Lovely immaculate cottage."

    Welcome hamper left which was a lovely surprise thank you. Positioned just off the high street so plenty of eateries only a short walk away. Only negative comment is about the parking which is very tight on a first come basis. We drove around for 15 mins or so one day as parking restrictions in surrounding streets and ended up having to leave the car in a residential street away from the property. However the positives definitely outweigh the negative! Lovely place to explore the surrounding area.

    Hello Anita, thank you for the great feedback. We understand it can be difficult with the parking situation- it’s the problem with being so central to town. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay, hopefully see you again soon! :-) Property Owner

  • "Our second time staying at Ardeevin cottage and have found it to be home from home on both occasions."

    Perfectly positioned to enjoy all that Buxton has to offer but also tucked away to ensure peace and quiet. Cottage was impeccably clean and tidy whilst retaining a homely feel. As the kitchen is so very well stocked with everything needed we cooked most evenings whilst enjoying a glass of red. Wonderful walking and cycling from the doorstep. Visits to Pooles Cavern, Solomons Temple, Monsal Trail and Buxton Museum or just a walk in the beautiful park well worth considering. Will be booking again for 2023. Thank ypu for making such a beautiful cottage available.

    The welcome pack was a lovely surprise when we arrived. The furnishings and decor was of a high standard. Only one thing missing is a washing machine which would have been useful as our stay was in February and the weather was wet windy and clothes got muddy. We will definitely be staying again.

    Hello Teresa, We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and you enjoyed the welcome hamper. Unfortunately we don’t have enough space to facilitate a washing machine. However, it does state that on the feature list. Hope to see you again soon! Xx Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely, clean, comfortable and beautifully presented."

    The hosts left a thoughtful welcome pack including a bottle of Prosecco and chocolates, which was very much appreciated. We managed to park in Church Street, but not always immediately outside the property, which for us wasn’t an issue as we were so central. There was quite a lot of noise as there is a public house adjacent to the cottage.

    The little extras are a lovely touch. Beds are very comfortable. We stayed in august and was able to park in the lane outside every day during our stay without a problem but there is parking available nearby and the lane is so quiet there would be no problem unloading outside if there was nowhere to park. The outside space is small but done lovely, we used it to store our bikes and the weather wasn’t really good enough to sit outside. The welcome pack was appreciated. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Accuracy of listing was a little ‘stretched’ - stating it has a garden / patio when it’s no more than an alleyway was a little disappointing."

    You either need to include photos or not mention it. No blinds over the velux windows in the main bedroom was a major inconvenience - being woken up at 4ish each morning by the sunlight was frustrating. We asked the owner as to whether we were missing a button / process for the blinds but we’re told it hadn’t been a problem for anyone in the past - we found that hard to believe and upon reading the guest book, people had flagged this over a year ago. Also, traffic noise is a consideration - if you’re wanting a very quiet place, perhaps this isn’t for you. Some noise from lorries / cars throughout the day (and we’re from central London). Apart from this, a very lovely, well appointed cottage and we enjoyed our stay.

    Hello Mr Rowland. You will be pleased to know that we have now installed blinds to the velux window. Since your visit, Sykes have returned to photograph the property again, and we now have a extensive album on the website. We can only apologise for the noise level you experienced- however with it being in the town centre, it does unfortunately have busy periods. We are so pleased you enjoyed the cottage. We hope to see you again soon! Property Owner

    A great place to stay and easy walking access to everything in Buxton. We enjoyed our stay at Ardeevin cottage, it contained all the home from home utensils, lovely quality bedding, comfortable bed and everything was very clean and tidy. We had some lovely walks around the Peak District and the views where breathtaking. Weather was perfect which made our Post Lockdown holiday even more special. The cottage is a real credit to the owners.

  • "Excellent cottage right in the centre of Buxton."

    It is very well equipped, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Only criticism is the parking - we had to ask the pub over the road to park overnight and the other two nights had to park two blocks away! It didn’t ruin our holiday but the advert for the cottage says parking which technically there is but residents use it so it’s at a premium. Fab place though

  • "We stayed at Ardeevin Cottage for a week and it was just lovely from start to finish."

    The cottage itself has been renovated to an excellent standard in every room. The only negative and that was only slightly was that the courtyard garden is very small and is mostly taken up with the 2 wheelie bins, you wouldn't want to sit out there. The owners have some lovely touches, providing handmade cakes, milk and prosecco for our arrival were top of the list. Towels, Linen and toiletries from The White Company did not go unnoticed. The kitchen equipment exceeded my expectations and all bases were covered. Including garlic press and a panini maker. I had packed dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and toilet cleaner and there was no need as everything was already there. If I was to make any comment it would be the lack of vacuum cleaner and mop and bucket. Myself and my daughter both have very long hair and I would have vacuumed upstairs had one been available. I would have also mopped downstairs during the week as 4 people and a dog for a week do tend to make mess however hard you try not to. The location of the cottage was perfect for us, we could eat out and go for drinks just moments away and were in the beautiful peaks within walking distance or a short drive. We would definitely come back to Ardeevin Cottage we loved it.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ardeevin Cottage in Buxton."

    It was definitely a home away from home! We were impressed with the cottage. It was modern, well appointed throughout, clean, cosy lounge, lovely separate kitchen and some nice touches throughout. Loved the main bedroom with the beautiful feature light and comfy bed. Great shower in the wet room! There was everything we needed. Close to the shops and pubs and a short walk down to Buxton Town centre. We can understand why Ardeevin cottage is so popular and would definitely stay there again! We enjoyed our holiday in Buxton and visited some places we have not been to before. The owners have left some useful information on places to visit if you are not familiar with the area. The Sykes website says off road parking. This is not correct and have mentioned this to Sykes, but they have not changed this at the time of review. The owners description says parking outside the cottage. This is on a first come first served basis. There were only two occasions where we were unable to park but found parking nearby, it was not a major issue for us. There is an information pack that the owners have provided and this shows alternative parking nearby if needed.

    Everything in the cottage was to a high standard including cleanliness. The one disappointment was the ability to park anywhere in the road leading to the cottage. We were unable to park when arriving and on several occasions during our stay. I think in the cottage information it should state that it is situated on a single track road with very limited parking. We found that at least two cars were parked outside the cottage and they never moved all week, there are only a further two spaces on the road available, these spaces were for a number of properties any seldomly free. In our information pack it states “roadside parking outside cottage” and this was never the case”

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.
