About the neighbourhood
The house is located a short walk from all amenities. Within ten minutes there are numerous traditional pubs (CAMRA listed),Italian and Indian restaurants, takeaways,a supermarket,post office and other independent shops. The train station serves Buxton and Manchester late into the evening. Short walks can be taken from the house into the surrounding countryside, with beautiful views over the town, the Goyt Valley, Taxal Edge. The local cricket pitch must have the best views in Derbyshire! The Goyt Valley,its reservoirs and surrounding hills offer fantastic walks of varying lengths, from level graded paths to full-day hikes over the high moorland, perhaps to the famous Cat and Fiddle Pub. A short distance by car is the best of the Peak District's scenery,with Kinder Scout,Mam Tor and the...
