A well-located, stylish cottage ideal for those who want to spend the day in open country but seek the facilities of a town centre location in the evenings, within an easy stroll of a quiet night’s rest.
Buxton is a festival town and the cottage’s central location puts you at the heart of its summer carnivals and many musical and theatrical events. Situated within very easy walking distance of all the Buxton International Festival and Fringe venues, it is just 15 minutes’ walk from Buxton Opera House.

Visit Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, and the National Trust’s Hardwick Hall, all of which have starred in the BBC period dramas and historical films. And if ever you do get a yearning for the big city, there’s always Manchester, just an hour away on the train.
