Interaction with guestsWaters reach is a pretty country cottage situated just yards from an historic canal basin and country pub. A haven for walkers, bird lovers, cyclists, and lovers of the outdoors. On the edge of the Peak District National Park, Kinder Scout is easily accessible and there are wonderful walks all around and Stately home close by. There is a supermarket not far away and the historic spa town of Buxton is our closest market town. Lots to do and see, but if you want to just relax, Waters Reach is the perfect break away.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Idyllic location
A lovely little cottage with everything we needed for the week and a half we stayed there. Very clean, quiet and just up the road from a good pub, serving pretty tasty food. But the best part is that the cottage is a stones throw from a wonderful canal area of barges, house boats and tow paths. There is also a big Tesco supermarket a shortish walk away, along the tow path.

Beautiful setting and comfortable accommodation with everything you need.
The cottage is well equipped, clean and pleasant. The beds are comfortable and the views from the windows at the back look at fields in the distance. It was a quiet and restful place to stay. There are no shops close by but Tesco is only a short drive away or a 45 minute pleasant walk along the canal tow path. There is a pub two minutes walk away with really tasty meals and pleasant atmosphere. The owner is very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The area is very pretty with lots of walking options. We loved our stay and would gladly be back if lucky enough to visit again from Australia.

Lovely cottage
My wife and I stayed at Waters Reach and I can say Kathryn meet us and showed us around, it is a lovely place in a lovely location ideal for the high peak area not far from the canal or the rail way, plus the local pub beside the canal did good food and only 50 yds away, all in all we had a wonderful holiday at Waters Reach.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Buxworth is a pretty village famed for the historic Bugsworth Canal basin. It is on the edge of the Peak District National park and close to the lovely Cheshire towns and villages. Manchester and Buxton have theatres, and a good range of shops. Buxworth has many places to walk and cycle, you can hire a boat to explore the canal which is just a few yards from the cottage, and Edale and the Pennine Way are just 20 minutes drive away.
Getting around
Although a car is not necessary, as there is a local bus service and a station in the next village, it is certainly much more convenient to have your own transport if you wish to explore further afield. If you have a bicycle, you can cycle the country lanes and towpaths alongside the Peak Forest Canal where cycling is safe and easy.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Leaving Stockport and Manchester follow the A6 towards Buxton. Having passed through Furness Vale, the road bends to the left and goes under a bridge. Turn left immediately after the railway bridge (sharp turn), and head to Buxworth. On entering the village, pass the church on the left and take the road to the right signed to the canal basin (The village school is at the top of the road). Waters Reach is the second cottage from the bottom of the row on the left. There is roadside parking.
