Description

Originally owned by the Duke of Devonshire, this Grade II listed barn conversion is one of the oldest buildings in Buxton, dating back to the 16th-century. Full of character with exposed beams and stone, the fabulous open plan living area can be found upstairs, leaving space for 3 comfortable bedrooms all benefiting from en-suite arrangements.
Located on the site of the owners, family run bed and breakfast, the centre of Buxton is less than 1 mile from the property, which provides ample entertainment and a programme full of events. There is also a wide variety of shops, boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as the famous Opera House and Pavilion Gardens.
Buxton and High Peak Golf Club is just a stone’s throw from the property, and being surrounded by the Peak District National Park means outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy endless amounts of walking and cycling. Both Rushup Moor and the Tissington Trail are close by, and the ever popular Bakewell and beautiful honeypot village of Castleton are around 20 minutes’ drive. The stunning Hope Valley, Goyt Valley and Roman Lakes are around 30 minutes away, as are the magnificent historic houses of Lyme Park, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House.

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.
