The location is excellent for buxton and the peak district. You have your own parking space which is nice. cottage stayed nice and cool in the hot weather. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed.
We found ‘Smithy’s Cottage’ to be a perfect holiday let.
Unlike so may other lets we have stayed in it was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and with no sign of the damp mustiness we have so often encounter. The accommodation is more like someone’s cosy home than a rental property.
Pam (the owner) kept in touch via text / email giving us much useful local information on local events, etc.
Excellent quiet location, with LITERALLY a two minute walk to local shops, pubs, etc. and a very short drive or walk to the dales.
We would not hesitate in re-booking should we revisit the Peak District.
Second time I've stayed here. Really close to the market square which has a few convenience stores on it, and a short walk from Buxton Park, Opera house etc.
It's a nice home away from home.
What a beautiful cottage, so much character, very central and providing all we could need for our stay. There wasn't anything we found that could have improved this property, the owners had thought of everything. We had unseasonably cold weather for the end of April but what a welcome home at the end of the day to light a fire in the cosy lounge. Having parking available was great as Buxton provided so much to do that we could leave the car safely secured when not being used. Pavilion Park is a great place to visit, The Discover Buxton Tram Co. starts from there which a brilliant way to see the town and know where to re-visit at leisure. As our weather didn't allow much walking, we would definitely come back to Smithy's Cottage when we next have want to see the beautiful countryside of the Peak District
Arrived here the week when heavy snow was forecast and came here hoping for the best, but eventually had to give in to the weather and went home after four days. But this was no slight on the cottage which was wonderful and will definitely be going back again to get the full benefit. Pam made our booking so easy by phone and going back to her cottage is a no brainer.
An unspoilt cottage with some history in a secluded street with no through-traffic. Cosy inside with plenty of character. All conveniences provided and ready on arrival, good clear communication in advance from owner. Excellent in every respect.
This is a delightful cottage in Buxton with excellent amenities, well appointed, with good broad band and off street private parking.
Great coms with the owner Pam Livesley.
