At Derbyshire Self Catering we welcome you to Buxton, a spa town in the heart of the Peak District National Park.
The Derbyshire town of Buxton has been described as many things: the 'Jewel of All Spa Towns' and the 'Heart of The Peak District' to name but two. Derbyshire Self Catering offer two properties within this idyllic town, so you can explore Buxton and all it has to offer for yourself. 

The spa town of Buxton was developed by the Dukes of Devonshire as a genteel health resort in the 18th century; now the largest town in the Peak District, it has an opera house with a theatre, museum and art gallery.


Buxton is Britain's highest market town, standing at over 1000ft above sea level, and is one of only two towns in England which the Romans prefixed with the term 'Aquae' - the Latin for 'waters' - Aquae Arnemetiae (the other was Aquae Sulis, which we now know as the city of Bath).


The Peak District provides opportunities for many types of outdoor activity. An extensive network of public footpaths and numerous long-distance trails, over 1,800 miles (2,900 km) in total, as well as large open-access areas, are available for hillwalking and hiking, mountain biking, climbing, caving


Buxton's Opera House enjoys a full programme of drama, dance, concerts, and comedy as well as staging some renowned festivals and events.
