Description

This beautifully presented 18th century, semi-detached cottage lies just a mile from the heart of Buxton, located on a quiet private lane next to the friendly owners’ home. Boasting an abundance of character and charm, you’ll find exposed timber beams, low doorways and steps between rooms, together with solid oak flooring, a roaring cast iron multi-fuel stove and farmhouse style kitchen, complete with granite work surface. The stunning family bathroom hosts a free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle, and in the cleverly hidden en-suite you’ll find a steam shower, complete with seat and massage jets. Outside in the spacious and beautifully maintained south-facing garden sits a hot tub, perfect for relaxing in after a long day in the great outdoors. You can also hire electric bikes from the owners who have a wealth of knowledge to help you with your visit.
Buxton is a thermal spa town, and one of the most popular tourist destinations within the Peak District. It’s well-known for both its Georgian and Victorian architecture together with its famous bottled water. You’ll find stunning ornamental gardens, a growing number of independent shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, plus a year-round programme of fairs, markets and festivals. You can take a guided tour of the town on the quirky and unique ‘Wonder of the Peak’ Tram, and visit parks and woodlands, including Buxton Country Park which leads up to Solomons Temple and the most magnificent far reaching views of the area.
Known as the ‘Gateway to the Peak District’ due to its location on the edge of the National Park, there’s a whole host of pretty towns and villages all within easy reach. Bakewell, Castleton, Eyam, and Edale are all within a half hour drive, as is the magnificent Chatsworth House. Manchester, Sheffield, Derby and Stoke are all within an hour’s drive, making Buxton easily accessible. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 1 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.
