  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Sylvannah."

    It is so well located to visit so many places, such as Castleton, Bakewell, Matlock Bath, and of course Buxton which is just a short walk from the house. Poole's Cavern, as well as the others at Castleton are nearby, and High Peak Bookstore and Cafe were a delight on a rainy afternoon, plus there are so many walks you are spoilt for choice (Thor's Cave, Lud's Church, Ladybower Reservoir, Dovedale, Chee Dale, Peveril Castle to name but a few). What made our stay so lovely though was all the thoughtful extra's at the house, which really made it a home from home. There was everything we could possibly need, plus so much more. We particularly loved the decor, the enclosed garden, the comfy duvet's and the soft towels. Thank you for the welcome basket, it was lovely, and there was even a little something for the dog. My daughter's, the dog and I would happily return, as not a day went by that one of us didn't comment that we would love to live there.

    Hello Abigail We are so grateful to receive such wonderful feedback about the Peak District with all it has to offer. Thank you too for loving Sylvannah! It is our desire that Sylvannah should give guests a pleasant relaxing retreat after sight-seeing. We hope you will return again in the not so distant future. Warm regards Alastair, Diane and Tessa Property Owner

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.
