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 us. Our contact details are supplied above.  Smithy's Cottage has been a holiday cottage located in Buxton since 2002 - there are many comments in the visitors book commending the cleanliness, the location and how well the cottage is equipped. We have now acquired land next to the cottage as dedicated private parking together with outside table and seating.

 

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 - that we now have many (also the cost of the grading scheme is very expensive).


We can accommodate groups up to 7 between 2 cottages located within 20m of each other see Buxton Holiday Cottages for more details.
