Enjoying a prime location just moments away from the stunning surroundings of the Peak District National Park, and easy access the local amenities, Harpur Cottage is a superb choice for a group or family of fives next getaway.

Be greeted by a small front courtyard with bistro table for two, a perfect spot for enjoying your morning coffee as you watch the world go by.

Step into the sitting room, where you can look forward to evenings spent relaxing on the plush sofas in front of the inviting electric fire, as your favourite show plays out on the TV.

Impress your loved ones with delicious meals, whipped up in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a washing machine, ready to enjoy at the dining table for five over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

There is a delightful chalk board feature wall behind the dining table where the little ones can show off their creative side!

Just off the kitchen you will find a cupboard housing a tumble dryer for your convenience.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day with a well-deserved soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower.

When sleep calls, choose from three well-appointed bedrooms to catch your rest in, two doubles and a single, all with hanging space for your belongings.

Explore your local surroundings, where you will find the popular attractions of Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, The Pavillion Gardens and Solomon’s Temple just a short walk away!

Those feeling a little more adventurous can explore the depths of Poole’s Cavern & Buxton Country Park, or if that isn’t your thing, why not test out your swing at the excellent Cavendish Golf Club or enjoy a truly unique evening at the Buxton Opera House?

The town has well-stocked for convenience stores and the welcoming eateries of The Parks Inn, The Hoffman Bar and The Old Sunn Inn, along with the Buxton Brewery where you can sample the local ales.

Take advantage of the Peak District National Park being a short drive away, where you can enjoy scenic walks, the historic sites of Pilsbury Castle and the Ruin of Errwood Hall, or the fascinating caverns of Blue John, Speedwell and Peak at the popular destination of Castleton.

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.
