  • "1, Southgate, Buxton 1, Southgate is the third holiday cottage in Buxton that we have rented through Sykes."

    It’s benefits are, firstly, the central location, with on-site parking, which is a major bonus in the town of Buxton. Secondly, the apartment is unusually spacious – the main bedroom would easily accommodate a full-sized snooker table! Daylight is slightly restricted, although this is to be expected in any lower ground floor apartment. The external stairway is easy to navigate, even with luggage; has good handrailing and can be illuminated for safe access at night. Generally speaking, the apartment is definitely up to the high standards that one expects from Sykes, and was clean, comfortable and exactly as described. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, and we expect to visit it again in the future.

  • "This flat is a very comfortable place to stay in Buxton."

    We had our 2 grandkids with us and they loved it. Very close to all the amenities in Buxton and the local Sainsbury was very useful. The Coach House fish and chip shop on the main road was excellent. The heating in the flat was very efficient and helped us to get the kids clothes dry after days playing in the park and woods. The timing and clock controls on the oven were tricky even with the instructions and there seemed to be some airflow at the top of the oven ( not the oven fan) which we couldnt turn off. However we were able to use it for cooking. Overall had a great week in the property.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Southgate very much."

    The apartment was clean, and well appointed with everything we required. The centre of Buxton was within a five minute walk, so it was easy to pop to the shops, to good places to eat & to local attractions. We were able to visit were many places of interest from stately homes, gardens to charming villages, all well worth a visit using Southgate as a base. It's a winner.

  • "Just back from a lovely stay in Buxton."

    The property is furnished with simple but quality items, beds were extremely comfortable, kitchen is well equipped and the little extras (tea & coffee, loo rolls, dishwasher tablets, teatowels) very welcome. No faults or issues whilst we were there. The property itself is close enough to walk into the town whilst still being on a quiet street, pavillion gardens, shops, pubs all within a few moments walk. The property has a parking space which is important as on-street parking nearby is hard to come by - something to be aware of if you bring a second vehicle. Would happily stay here again next time we visit the area.

  • "Loved our stay in Buxton and would highly recommend this flat."

    Simple in decoration but extremely clean and tidy with spacious rooms. Plenty of space for a family to stay here with 2 large bedrooms, 1 room has a single and double bed, and the other a double bed. For a basement flat, it was surprisingly light and airy, and the flat was very quiet. Well equipped with plenty of kitchen utensils, high chair and cot, washing machine, good internet and a large tv. We also received chocolates and a bottle of Prosecco on arrival, a great touch! The flat is 2 streets away from the centre of town, but situated up a slight hill so away from any noise. Easy 2 min walk to town, and a couple minutes more to the beautiful parade gardens. Great location! There’s a Sainsbury’s local a couple of mins walk away as well. We had a great stay, and would definitely recommend to others looking for a staycation this summer. Thanks for hosting us!

  • "Well located and very clean and comfortable apartment."

    The kitchen was well equipped, in fact it was better equipped than any other self-catering place we have stayed in. We did take our own washing up liquid and tea bags/sugar and many other things, but the owner had thought of everything. It was good to have towels provided. It was a lovely touch for the owner to leave us a bottle of wine and chocolates. The beds were very comfortable. Rooms were all spacious and we liked the large screen TV. Regarding the kitchen utensils and crockery, it was good to see everything sparkling clean. The location could not have been better. It was close to the shops, bus stops, pubs and restaurants and even close to the gardens (once you know the short cut). We would definitely book this property again and would definitely use Sykes again.

  • "Flat was larger than I expected, clean and very warm."

    A couple of items I would have liked in the kitchen but not a problem. Central for shops, pubs and restaurants and has the advantage of being halfway up/ down the hill so it's an easy walk to the market place or the Pavillion Gardens and train station. Parking space is a real bonus in Buxton. Would be very happy to stay here again.

  • "What a perfect position in Buxton, so close to all the amenities but so quiet."

    The apartment is spacious, clean, comfortable and everything you require for a self catering holiday is there. Tea coffee sugar, milk for a cuppa when you arrive, and a couple of bottles of wine and local chocolates welcome you in. I would recommend a day cycling on the Monsal trail to Bakewell, especially on a Monday which is Bakewell market day, a brilliant day out.Lots of walks within easy reach either by car or an excellent bus service. Entertainment at night is plentiful in Buxton, with the beautiful Opera House offering varied acts, and bands can be found in one of the many pubs most nights of the week. The Pavillion and gardens are superb for all the family. Buxton is truly a gem and No 1 Southgate also.

    The flat was in a very good position to access all of the facilities the town has to offer. The rooms were spacious and overall the flat was very clean. Two bottles of wine, red & white, chocolates as well as tea, coffee and milk were provided which was very much appreciated. The kitchen and bathroom were very nice, beds comfortable, linens god quality. The only one minor issue was the lack of some kitchen items, small glasses and bowls. A place we would be happy to visit again.

    Sykes contacted the owner of 1 Southgate, who let us transfer there at no extra cost (although it was bigger) and who let us stay an extra day. Another lovely Sykes apartment, great (very central but quiet) location to ditch the car and walk or use bus or train everywhere. Very well-equipped - although a DVD/CD player would have been welcome (admittedly this is probably an old-fashioned request in these days of streaming and mp3s). Have already booked 1 Southgate for return in July.

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.
