Ann and George have now retired but thank all our guests for their support over the years
A warm welcome
Wayfarers, a traditional stone cottage some 150 years old, is set in the village of Buxworth within a conservation area adjacent to the Bugsworth Canal Basin. The Basin is the only inland port on Britain's narrow canal system to have survived intact, and therefore remains an important local landmark.
Buxworth is an ideal jump off point for experiencing the breathtaking beauty of both the Dark and White Peaks. The village is surrounded by the Peak District National Park and on a National Cycle Network route, making the cottage the perfect hub from which to enjoy all kinds of walking, riding and cycling activities.
So why not come and spend some time soaking up the beauty of the Peak District.
Be our guests at Wayfarers.
∼ George and Ann
The cottage has steep stairs but with handrails on both sides.
The courtyard is accessed via six stone steps with a handrail; caution is required in wet or icy conditions.
