Best Buxton hostels

Top tips for finding the perfect Buxton hostel

  • Buxton hostels mostly come in the form of cost-effective cottages and bungalows owned and run by local residents. They’re wonderful places to stay, not least because you’ll get to experience the authentic lifestyle of the Peak District rather than have a more anodyne hotel stay. Families on holiday can book at Hawthorne Farm Guest House, which is tailored to providing plenty of activities for kids, so you can relax yourself. Rooms are family sized, and there’s a kid-friendly buffet in addition to the complimentary daily breakfast. From here, you can go hiking, horse riding and cycling, and if you want some time to yourself, child care and babysitting services are available. There’s a large outdoor relaxation area, with a BBQ for outdoor dining in the picnic area provided.
  • To be within easy reach of the main tourist attractions in and around the town, you can book Buxton hostels and budget homestays like Foxlow Coach House. It’s a charming, rustic B&B in the town itself, and from here, you can drive or walk to Poole’s Cavern Park, Buxton Opera House and Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, all of which are within 2 miles of your accommodation. There’s a bar and lounge on the premises and a shared lounge and TV area. There’s a highly rated breakfast menu, cooked and served to you by your hosts.
  • Book at Greystones R1 Smallholding in Peak Park to take full advantage of the natural attractions of the Peak District region. It’s on the outskirts of Buxton near Poole’s Cavern. It provides access to activities like hiking, pony trekking and paragliding for the more adventurous. You can also go on more sedate walks down the many Monsal trails in the area. These wind past tiny hamlets where you can sample local tavern fare. Go Ape Buxton is nearby, and there’s a donkey sanctuary next door. Rare breed chickens and a couple of peacocks live on the property, too. Buxton hostels and similar accommodation like this offer a unique holiday experience, even if you’re on a budget.
