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
