Wayfarers Cottage is a pretty little cottage situated just a stroll away from Bugsworth Basin, near Whaley Bridge, and superbly located on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District and can sleep four people. The cottage has a zip/link king-size double bedroom, a double bedroom, a shower room, a kitchen with dining area and access to the rear courtyard and a sitting room with an open fire. Outside there is roadside parking, a rear patio with furniture and a shed for boots/bike storage. Wayfarers Cottage is an ideal touring location.


I feel that this cottage is more for young people, as at 60+ climbing on a chair to open high windows was not good, also the shower was quite dangerous with 6" step in out out with no hand rail, the separate wc was very small indeed, impossible to even sit properly on the wc. The bedrooms were ok, very comfortable beds. The kitchen was adequate, everything in it you would need, table for 4 to eat at. Lounge was quite a drab dark room, with 2 two seater sofa's, one was a sofa bed which was extremely uncomfortable. The courtyard garden was in fact a shared courtyard with 2 other cottages, very unhappy with that as we had our dog with us, and was unable to let him out there in case other people left gate onto road open. Other people had left comments in visitors book, but obviously they don't seem to think this important enough to change description. Cottage was also not cleaned very well, dust everywhere in lounge, kitchen sink had an old dishcloth tucked in drainer. Luckily the location was excellent so we still enjoyed our holiday, but wouldn't return to this property.

Wayfarers Cottage is a really cosy, comfortable cottage in a lovely location, with amenities close by.

We had a very happy week in this lovely cottage in Buxworth. The warm welcome on our arrival set the tine for the week. Everything was perfect - bar the locality's very slow internet connection!

Wayfarers Cottage was just what we expected and was a comfortable retreat for us over Christmas. It would be great to come back and be able to enjoy more of the surrounding countryside.
Mr Perks
