Smithy's Cottage in Buxton

Smithy's Cottage is a warm and cosy cottage on a quiet "access only" street near the centre of Buxton with large private parking area with BBQ and seating next to the cottage.

It is a 4 star holiday cottage located in Buxton. It sleeps 3 with private parking and an open log coal fire. BBQ & outside seating. It also has free WIFI.

Home of the local blacksmith for several hundred years - the forge was next door and is also converted to a house - the cottage still retains much of its old period charm:

  • large oak beam fireplace with a cast iron open fire.
  • thick limestone walls with deep recessed windows
  • walls that slope outwards downstairs and inwards upstairs
  • hardly a "right angle" in the house to be found!

    During the day: walk the peaks and dales, moors and the beautiful rambling countryside. The Derbyshire Peak District is ideal for walking, cycling or just driving and sight seeing any time of year.

    In the evening: explore Buxton's parks and gardens and visit the local pubs and restaurants or even the Buxton Opera House (without having to drive). You can help yourself to the famous Buxton Spring Water at St.Annes Well (it's free to collect it from the spring near the town centre ......... but you need to take your own bottles).

    Or simply just relax: in our c350 year old 4 star Buxton holiday cottage which was once the home of the local blacksmith and his family located in a quiet (access only)street close to the main market square of Buxton - in the summer just sit outside and enjoy a BBQ.
