The Heart of England/Peak District
The varied landscape of the Peak District makes it ideal for the walker, the cyclist or for those seeking more adventurous pursuits. There are opportunities for climbing, caving, watersports, hang-gliding, mountain biking etc.
Numerous footpaths and bridle ways are on our doorstep and offer unrivalled walking in the best part of the White Peak - this is the area of the Peak District of rolling hills, dry stone walls, villages and dales, the Dark Peak being mainly moorland.
The highly popular Tissington Trail, which runs for 17 miles, is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and the start is less than 1 mile from the apartment.
Two further trails, the High Peak Trail and the Manifold Valley Trail (both almost as long), are within a few miles. These three tracks are ideal for family cycling as is the network of quiet minor roads leading off at various places from the trails.
Buxton restaurants provide a cosmopolitan choice of cuisine from snack bars and coffee shops to wine bars and high quality restaurants offering gastronomic delights. The apartment enjoys a prime position overlooking the popular Buxton Pavilion Gardens and just a few minutes' walk from the centre of town and the Buxton Opera House.
It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual Festival of Music and Arts. Buxton restaurants provide a cosmopolitan choice of cuisine from snack bars and coffee shops to wine bars and high quality restaurants offering gastronomic delights.
Around the centre of Buxton there are shopping arcades and high street stores, with an outdoor market held regularly in Market Square to make Buxton shopping an interesting venture of retail therapy.
There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
