Looking out over The Peak District
Buxton is surrounded by hedgerows, streams, cliffs, outcrops and natural heritage literally teeming with birds and wildlife. From upland oak woodland and moorland to dipper, flowers, insects and ground nesting birds. Bluebells to wood warbler, pied flycatcher, wildflowers and butterflies, the area has it all!
Being located in the heart of the Peak District makes Buxton an ideal staging point for outdoor adventurers to take to the hills for some light walking or some serious hiking and climbing.
