  • "Great location for exploring Buxton and all the surrounding area."

    The house is very well equipped and the kitchen/dinning area is beautiful. Tasteful decor and spacious rooms. We stayed for a week ((6 adults and 6 children) and had a great time. Two additions would really add significant value to the property: a washer/dryer, and another or bigger fridge.

  • "Springdale is a fabulous house to stay for a long weekend."

    Beautifully decorated and the kitchen has plenty of crockery for a large group. Bedrooms are vey spacious and bathrooms a plenty. As a group of maturer women who run their own homes a few things for us could be improved. The bedrooms are huge, why wouldn’t you have a bedside table both sides of the bed and bedside lights to accompany them? In one of the bedrooms (twin) there was only a standard lamp the other side of the room, with no bedside tables. Ok it could have been moved but that’s not the point the bedrooms are beautiful but could be improved. No teapot in the kitchen, we were a group of 9 and were staying 3 nights although we like a nice glass of wine also we drink lots of tea and this would have been nice. The lounge could take another chair as only seated 6 adults, with the house enabling 12 this could be a disappointment to some. Another key for the property as a large house. It’s great to have a key safe but with the English weather and groups that have little children a second key for quick access into the property would be a positive. The water is very hot and I imagine the boiler temperature is set higher than necessary to meet guidelines (this is for saving the owners money) The house was lovely and warm and this was welcomed. The broom in the cupboard under the stairs was broken so couldn’t sweep. All in all the house was amazing and I would live in a house like that. Thank you

  • "What an amazing house!"

    Such lovely big rooms, so simply but beautifully decorated. The whole house has a feeling of calm. We had a large party of a range of ages and it suited us all. The property is well kept, warm and clean. We couldn’t fault it. We especially appreciated all the toilets, bathrooms and plentiful hot water. We managed to get three medium sized cars in the driveway with some careful manoeuvring. Fantastic location for access to shops, parks, pavilion and the facilities. Even though we had bad weather we had a fantastic time.

  • "Our family had a wonderful Christmas break!"

    The house is warm and comfortable (and stylish) with lots of bathrooms, we parked 3 cars on site and a fourth on a nearby side street and walked to everywhere in Buxton. Just a suggestion, but a bigger fridge or extra fridge would have been useful, and if we had stayed longer, a washing machine for all the kids stuff. We hope to return next year too! 8 adults and 4 kids under 8.

    Comfy beds, good attention to detail throughout the house. We saw a great show at the Opera House and I can recommend Lucianos Italian restaurant. We would definitely return. Thank you!

  • "Amazing house, beautifully decorated, furnished and well equipped."

    Ideal for party of 12 with many bathrooms and toilets. Ideal location for walking into Buxton and a supermarket close by. We were surprised that the house was on such a busy road, not mentioned in property details. We had issues with toilet door handles falling off. That said, we enjoyed our stay at Springdale House and would definitely return.

  • "A very spacious and stylish property."

    However, we felt unable to use a bedroom on the top floor due to large cracks in the ceiling directly above the bed. There was no secondary glazing to the front windows so the property was noisy, as it is situated on a busy main road. We also feel a washing machine and tumble drier are essential for a property of this size. We noted in a previous review that the downstairs toilet door handle kept coming off, this has not been remedied. Overall the property is well situated for visiting local attractions and has a large supermarket close by.

  • "The property is beautiful, tastefully decorated and has many features that were much appreciated."

    It has great facilities. We would highlight two issues that impacted on our stay so that one of the issues can be remedied. Several of the door handles in the bathrooms come off in your hand when trying to leave the toilet. This happened several times and worried the children in our party when they used the facilities. I do feel it is worth mentioning in the property details that the property is on a very busy main road. This impacted on the quality of our sleep and noise from the lorries woke us early each morning. I was not aware of this when booking.

  • "This was a superb place to stay and we all thoroughly enjoyed it."

    A couple of things I would add 1- tea towels. The luxury towels for people were wonderful so maybe supply a few tea towels? 2- the advert did say utility room… which indicates a washing machine was there wasn’t 3- long term maybe an outdoor area. It wasn’t an issue for us as the weather was poor on an evening but something that matched the special house I think would allow you to increase your price. Genuinely beautiful place where there are no negatives just little bits I think can be added. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Luxurious - extremely well decorated - and the dining room table that allow a family to eat and talk together was heavenly. Best thing I can say is THANK YOU

  • "We had a great stay , we are a group of friends that love walking and visiting beautiful places like Buxton."

    The house is lovely, convenient for town and very tastefully decorated and the bedroom combination was just right for our group. The kitchen is well equipped and the big square dining table was perfect, much more sociable that a long table. We were very comfortable in the house. It would have been nice to have one or two chairs in the bedroom with the bath and an extra bedside lamp (not complaining, just nice to have!). Thank you for a great stay.

  • "By far the best Sykes property we've stayed in."

    Perfect in every way. Clean, well equipped, comfortable beds, hot showers/baths, and despite our visit being in a cold snap, the property remained toasty throughout. Great place for our entire family to come together. The only VERY minor issue was there was no teatowel for drying washed pots. There is a dishwasher (which works great) but our little ones eat wear is best washed and dried by hand. So, VERY minor but this shows the excellent standards of the rest of the house. 100% recommended

    It is modern, clean, comfy and decorated beautifully. It is contemporary but also cosy. The communal areas (kitchen, dining room, living room) are perfect and spacious. The location is great; just a few minutes walk from the centre of Buxton. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be back! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

Nestled in the heart of Buxton, just paces away from attractions and eateries lies this grand, four-storey holiday home, 95 Dale Road.

Brimming with character, with a woodburning stove, feature fireplaces and a stone-fronted exterior, this property is ideal for a large group of friends or a family.

Park up at the foot of the home on the driveway and make your way inside to discover glass-stained windows.

Kick-off your muddy boots and house them in the boot room, ready for an adventure-filled day.

Unwind in the sitting room on the plush sofas and let the gas fire warm your toes as you watch your favourite shows on the TV.

Step over to the kitchen/diner with its lovely herringbone floor, here the designated chef can use the electric range cooker and hob to rustle up tasty dishes for the group.

Settle down at the dining table and why not uncork a bottle of fizz to celebrate your getaway?

On warm evenings, open the bi-fold doors to dine alfresco in the courtyard, as well as bike storage.

Climb upstairs to the first floor where you will discover a bathroom and three king-size bedrooms, one with a freestanding bath for a soak.

There are three more beautiful king-size bedrooms on the second floor, as well as two more stylish bathrooms.

Each floor offers a cloakroom with a WC too, so you don't need to worry about morning queues.

Awaken with a refreshing rinse in the walk-in shower or melt your stresses away in a freestanding bath.

If you can tear yourself away from this marvellous home, set out on foot to enjoy a home-cooked breakfast at a quirky café.

Buxton has something for everyone, uncover its rich history at Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, watch live performances at Buxton Opera House and admire the landscaped gardens at The Pavilion Gardens.

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.
