Description

Offering two super kingsize bedrooms, both with en-suite facilities, this first floor holiday apartment can be found just a short walk from the centre of the spa town of Buxton. As part of a former period detached residence, the apartment is spacious, beautifully and tastefully furnished throughout, and benefits from off road parking for one car.
Buxton is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Peak District, most renowned for impressive architecture, magnificent buildings and of course, its spring water which you can try direct from the source itself at St. Ann’s Well. Home to a wonderful array of shops, restaurants, wine bars and even its own brewery, the spa town holds a full calendar of events including the Opera House, Pavilion Gardens and the Buxton Festival Fringe, which is a vibrant open arts festival, held annually every July. As this is the gateway to the Peak District National Park there’s good walking close by, including up to Solomon’s Temple which offers some spectacular views across the High Peak. This is a great base for exploring a number of pretty towns and villages within easy reach including Bakewell, 12½ miles away, which is home to the stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, the beautiful honeypot village of Castleton, 11 miles away, the fascinating plague village of Eyam, 13¾ miles and the start/end of the Pennine Way at Edale is 13 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
