  • "Beautiful kept house, decorated for Christmas, thank you."

    Good social space downstairs for eight ppl. Convient location to Town. Owner very helpful and we loved the welcome Christmas treats provided. A few practicalities that would be most useful, somewhere to hang coats, a towel rail in each room as no where to put towels. Two of the bedrooms lacked hanging space for clothes or any drawers in any rooms. Otherwise, we could not fault the property and enjoyed our stay.

    Very well equipped kitchen and a pleasant outside area for sitting. Our first visit to Buxton which is a pretty and very friendly place. Delicious homemade biscuits on arrival! Many thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "We had a brilliant stay here."

    The place is so beautifully done, it was a joy to stay here. The pictures don't do it justice! The hosts were very communicative and made us feel welcome - the cookies went down a storm! We would stay here again without a doubt.

  • "Eight of us had a brilliant 3-night stay at this newly renovated house in Buxton."

    The *huge* modern kitchen, with indoor and outdoor dining tables, was ideal for us to simultaneously socialise and cook large breakfasts and big dinners at the end of days out. The beds were very comfy and the shower was warm. Parking additional cars wasn’t difficult on the quiet street. There’s no dedicated bike storage at the house but the owner was happy for us to store bikes indoors if necessary, and there’s room for several bikes to be locked together on the rear terrace. Being able to charge an electric vehicle on the driveway was very useful too. The owner was friendly and helpful. Thank you!

  • "We stayed at BTT for a long weekend of walking in the Peaks."

    The house was fantastic, beds comfy, shower was great and it was super helpful being able to charge our cars! We would all absolutely recommend this house to others and will likely return. Sam was fantastic with all our queries before and after the stay. Great stay!

  • "By the Tracks certainly didn't disappoint."

    The property has been beautifully renovated to the best possible standard and we loved having our family birthday celebratory weekend here. It was the ideal place to explore Buxton and the many things it has to offer, as well as the stunning surrounding area. The host could not of been more welcoming and helpful. This is truly a special place that I would highly recommend to family and friends and will look forward to returning in the future.

  • "One of the best short stays I've stayed at."

    The house has been renovated to an extremely high standard, all the appliance were of a high specification. Everything was immaculate. The location was perfect, we could travel to all of the places we wished to visit within around 30 minutes. Only wished we stayed longer, there's so much to see and explore! We will definitely be returning, and have already looked at dates! Many thanks to Sam who was the perfect host, he lives close by. Any query we had was responded to straight away, he was able to accommodate all of our requests! Many thanks Sam, the children (and adults) loved their stay!

The property

Sitting at the top of a quiet road on the outskirts of Buxton, Derbyshire, is this inviting, semi-detached house, By The Tracks.

Benefitting from a private driveway with an EV charging point and a rear enclosed garden, By The Tracks is a splendid escape for up to eight guests looking to escape to this region of Derbyshire.

The heart of the home is the bright and airy kitchen/diner, uplifted by natural light from the large windows, providing a superb place to prepare home-cooked dishes with assistance from the electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, whilst the washer/dryer is sure to come in handy for the laundry.

After a filling feast beside a quirky feature wall decorated with places to eat in the local area, follow the oak floor to the lounge and make yourself comfortable upon the large settees, using this time to discuss plans for the remainder of the holiday.

Rear patio doors lead to the enclosed garden, where you can relax upon the decking with a favourite drink in hand.

Head up to the first floor and discover the first set of bedrooms, including two king-size doubles and a 4’ double, each neutrally presented with beautiful features and fittings.

Continue up to the second floor where the fourth bedroom lays, housing another king-size bed and storage space.

Serving the bedrooms is the shower room, where you can start the morning with a rejuvenating rinse before heading about your day.

The historic market town of Buxton is a superb holiday base; uncover its rich history at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, catch a live performance at Buxton Opera House and admire the landscaped gardens at The Pavillion Gardens.

If you fancy a night away from the kitchen, treat your loved ones to a meal at Santiago tapas restaurant, Dubbin Good food or Khomkai Thai Cuisine.

Pop on your walking attire and head into the Peak District National Park, where you can enjoy a range of scenic hikes and cycle routes, plus there are several stately homes to visit, including the esteemed Chatsworth House and nearby Haddon Hall.

There’s plenty to fill your holiday itinerary whilst at By The Tracks.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
