This pet friendly, ground floor studio apartment on a working farm sleeps 2 people in the village of Cowdale just a couple of miles from the famous Roman spa town of Buxton in the Peak District National Park.

The Shavings occupies an excellent location on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Just over 2 miles from Buxton, this charming studio apartment is set on the ground floor of an old stone barn on a working farm in the hamlet of Cowdale. The Shavings’ welcoming and comfortable accommodation includes an open plan studio room with double bed, a well equipped fitted kitchen area with breakfast bar and a sitting area. There are numerous diverse and enjoyable walks that start from The Shavings’ doorstep, and wonderful market towns offering gorgeous local food and drink. This is a cosy and value for money holiday home for those who want to sample all that the Peak District has to offer.


Fantastic place to stay with lovely owners.

It was quiet and somewhere to take the dog walking. A lovely cottage with lovely owners.
