Alpine Lodge Guest House has been completely refurbished to create welcoming and luxurious bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodation.
A traditional full English breakfast is on the menu using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Lighter options available – delicious smoked salmon over scrambled eggs on a toasted muffin, eggs Florentine – gently steamed spinach with poached eggs and just a hint of fresh parmesan cheese. Freshly baked continental pastries.
Built in the late 19th Century, Alpine Lodge Guest House is situated in a tree-lined, residential road, less than 3 minutes walk to the town centre. The Frank Matcham designed Opera House and 23 acre Pavilion Gardens are within easy walking distance. A great selection of good restaurants and bars in both lower and higher Buxton are a gentle stroll away. All tastes and cuisines covered including English, French, Greek, Indian, Italian and Mexican!
Buxton is well known for its architecture. The Georgian Crescent and Thermal Spa is due to open in 2018 following a huge investment and renovation programme on the Grade 1 listed building. Visitors from all over the world are attracted by the many cultural events staged throughout the year – Buxton Festival of World Cinema in April; The Big Session (Folk Music) from 28th April – 1st May; Buxton International Festival of Operas, Music and Books from the 7th-23rd July; Buxton Fringe from the 5th-23rd July. A welcome return of the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company from the 25th to 29th July. Latest news from the Opera House is the announcement of the Buxton Comedy Festival starting on the 31st August through to 3rd September.
For the more adventurous, the location of Alpine Lodge Guest House makes it a superb base from which to enjoy a walking or cycling break in the Peak National Park taking in the Goyt Valley, Kinder Scout and the Manifold Valley. The Eroica Britannia Cycle Festival with bike rides for all abilities will take place over the weekend of the 16th-18th June based at Whitehaven on the outskirts of Buxton. Climbing and caving are very popular activities in the area – Peak Pursuits has a good selection of activities to suit all abilities. Walking, either self-guided or organised, are plentiful in the area with well-signed routes. The Peak District Walking Festival organised by the Peak District Tourist Board takes place every year around late April – early May.
