Smithys Cottage is a quality self catering vacation rental located in the Derbyshire Peak District. If you require any more information about the cottage and the area or have any special requirements and you would like to make an availability enquiry - then please contact me (telephone no at top of page) for a personal friendly service - or if you prefer I respond quickly to any email enquiries or simply complete our enquiry form


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


Visit the peak district for a great holiday. some useful links
