Buxton is a beautiful spa town in Derbyshire, on the outskirts of the Peak District. The town is nestled next to the River Wye and is renowned for its high elevation, the highest of any market town in England. Buxton is brimming with stunning ancient architecture and fascinating royal history, from the spa, crescent and spring gardens to the numerous shops, restaurants and tea rooms.
Elegant and full of allure, it’s not hard to see why Buxton has been attracting visitors since Roman times. Much of the draw comes in the form of the natural thermal springs which now provide the focal point for spa treatments in Grade I listed hotel and spa, The Crescent. The vestiges of the town’s popularity throughout history are apparent in the beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture, whose construction was fuelled by the 5th Duke of Devonshire’s desire to create a spa town to rival Bath. Architectural beauties such as the Devonshire Dome, Edwardian Opera House and landscaped Pavilion Gardens are among just some of those which can be admired during a holiday in Buxton.
While its past is revealed through its resplendent buildings, Buxton keeps its foot in the door of the 21st century, with a range of high street brands and independent retailers at its popular shopping centres, The Springs, Cavendish Arcade and The Old Court House. There’s also a grand choice of eateries, whether you’re pining for a hearty home-cooked roast or tempted by the thought of a refined afternoon tea.
When you’re not enjoying the delights of the beautiful town, you can head out into the scenery of the Peak District. The rugged romantic landscapes of the Dark Peak and the peaceful dales of the White Peak are both easily accessible, with numerous options for daytrips. Why not start locally with a visit to the show caves of Poole’s Cavern and the woodland trails of Buxton Country Park.
With so much to see and do, the one certainty is that you’ll need a relaxing base to recharge your batteries. Our holiday cottages in Buxton are perfectly positioned for making the most of your Peak District holiday, and with everything from dog-friendly cottages to large houses for group celebrations, we’re sure you’ll find your ideal home-from-home.
