This traditional, mews-style cottage offers light and airy accommodation in a quiet cul-de-sac on the very edge of Buxton town centre. Adjacent to the owner’s home, it lies just 5 minutes’ walk from the town’s cultural quarter with its restaurants (Indian, French, Italian, Thai and Swiss), quirky bars and cafes, and bijou boutiques in the Cavendish Arcade just round the corner. For architectural enthusiasts, a variety of fascinating buildings are within easy walking distance including the Devonshire Dome (which can also be seen from the main bedroom window), The Crescent, Buxton Opera House, Pavilion Gardens and England’s oldest continuously operating hotel, The Old Hall.
Aspiring to offer all-year round cultural events at its historic opera house, Pavilion Arts Centre and Victorian Pavilion Gardens complex, Buxton has become a global magnet for literary, opera, folk music and comedy aficionados. Being surrounded on three sides by the Peak District National Park, it also makes an ideal base for walking, cycling and other outdoor pursuits. Beautiful walks can be enjoyed at Rushup Moor, and cyclists can take advantage of the traffic-free Tissington Trail. Bakewell, home to the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall, can be reached in around half an hour, as can Castleton with is caverns, and the National Trust’s Lyme Park. The Monsal Trail, one of the most spectacular leisure routes in Britain for cycling, walking and horse riding, provides a traffic-free route from just outside Buxton straight through to Bakewell, and for thrill seekers, the UK’s premier theme park, Alton Towers, can be reached in around a 45-minute drive. Shop 700 yards, pub 175 yards and restaurant 550 yards.
