Holiday cottages to rent in Buxton
Did you know that Buxton is Englands highest market town? That’s right, and its been welcoming visitors to enjoy its natural thermal springs and wonderful settings 300 metres above sea level since Roman times. You can come and enjoy the town for yourself and discover all the things to do whilst staying in one of our self-catering cottages which act as the perfect base to explore Derbyshire from. Take the kids away and stay in a family-friendly town house or plan a mini-break in one of our cosy cottages for two. Whatever the occasion, we will have something to suit you.
Buxton’s heyday as a Georgian spa town has a large number of impressive buildings, including the Grand Crescent (not as big as the one at Bath, but similar in style). The attraction of warm springs which emerge at a constant 28 degrees is undoubtedly a factor in Buxton’s history. Visitors still come to ‘take the waters’ – either drinking or bathing in it for the good of their health and to socialise. The Opera House (designed by Frank Matcham in the early 1900s) and the Pavilion Gardens play host to the highly acclaimed Buxton Festival throughout July.
The town, with its high street shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants serves the surrounding Peak District and makes a good base for exploring the area, such as the nearby village of Combs or the intriguing Macclesfield Forest, not to mention nearby Great Longstone and Quarnford. It is also close to the pretty villages of Chapel-en-le-Frith and Taddington making cultural day trips really easy.
