Visit the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District staying in our popular 17th century holiday cottage located in the Victorian spa town of Buxton. Apart from Buxton being the highest town in England - it is a Market Town in the centre of the Derbyshire Peak District - a great place to use as a base for walking, cycling or simply taking in the views and visiting the local villages and towns.
Visitors from across the world have been attracted to the warm Buxton spring waters since pre Roman times and Buxton is still just as popular today..

An old cottage with modern facilities and an open fire
ntil the early 1900s Smithys Cottage on Church Street in Buxton was the home of the local blacksmith for about a hundred years - now refurbished into comfortable living accommodation it still retains a lot of its old period charm:

Garden and Parking

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

the crescent
The Crescent, Buxton

Dovedale ... just a 30min drive


  • a large oak beam fireplace with cast iron open fire.
  • about 20" thick limestone walls with deep recessed windows
  • walls that slope inwards upstairs and outwards downstairs
  • hardly a "90 degree angle" in the house to be found!

During the day: you can walk the peaks and dales, the moors and the beautiful rambling countryside. The whole of the Peak District is great for walking, cycling or just driving and sight seeing all through the year.


In the evening: explore Buxton's old parks and victorian gardens and visit the local restaurants and pubs and the Buxton Opera House (without having to drive anywhere). 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 c17th century holiday cottage located in Church Street which is a quiet (access only) street but close to the main market square of Buxton - in the summer sit outside in the garden area and enjoy a BBQ.


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


Location of Smithys Cottage

Smithy's Cottage has been attracting guests (many returning again and again) for nearly 20 years. It is located on the quiet "access only" Church Street just a short easy walking distance to the centre of Buxton. It has a large private parking area (with lighting), space for a BBQ and seating next to the cottage. The outside area is a bit of a suntrap (weather permitting!) where you can relax with a coffee or a glass of wine in the garden room. The cottage is in easy walking distance of some the great pubs and restaurants and the local amenities which includes the famous Buxton Opera House, Pavilion Gardens, Devonshire Dome, Poole Cavern, Grin Low Country Park and the The Crescent which is under re development.

Smithy's Cottage has been a holiday cottage located on Church Street in Buxton since 2002 - there are many comments in the visitors book commending the cleanliness, the location and how well the cottage is equipped. In 2009 we acquired land next to the cottage to use as dedicated private parking and an outside sitting area. Up to April 2016 Smithys Cottage was graded 4 star accommodation - like many other cottages we have decided not to continue with the grading scheme as most visitors now tell us that they base their decision on pictures and reviews on TripAdvisor - that we now have many (also the cost of the grading scheme is very expensive).


Full address of Smithys Cottage is 18, Church Street, Buxton, Derbyshire, SK176HD
