ntil the early 1900s Smithys Cottage had been the home of the local blacksmith for several hundred years - though now refurbished into comfortable accommodation it still retains much of its old period charm:

buxton opera house
The Opera House only a 5 min walk from cottage

the crescent
The Crescent, Buxton


  • 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 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 anywhere). 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 holiday cottage 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.


Around Buxton: is some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK. Whether you enjoy walking, rambling, cycling, rock climbing or just simply appreciate superb views. Buxton is located centrally within the Derbyshire Peak District making it easy to get to all these great facilities.
