  • "Great flat and very well equipped."

    It's well hidden and super peaceful, plenty of games to keep the kids entertained on a rainy day. Buxton is nice and the main park was lovely, we only discovered it on our last day. Had a lovely few days and would certainly recommend. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    It has everything you need and the welcome treats of wine and biscuits were very much appreciated. It is spotlessly clean and the whole place is so homely and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again if we’re in the area and would thoroughly recommend it.

    Central location for everything you needed or to visit all local areas. The flat was extremely large not at all what I expected. Beautiful property. The photographs did not do it justice. Very warm and welcoming. Definetly stay there again.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. I have asked Sykes to come and take some new pictures as I felt with some new furniture as well it would be good to update it so I will chase them up on that as they haven't got back to me yet! Property Owner

  • "The flat was lovely, exceptionally clean and a great location for exploring Buxton town centre."

    Michelle was a wonderfully thoughtful host, even sending us information about the storms to ensure we had a safe journey home. We had a mini break in February but the flat is a great location for a week or longer to explore the whole of the Peak District.

    Thank you for your kind review and I am so glad you had a good stay despite the weather! This is our only holiday let and we are local so I have the time to make sure I look after my guests and keep it as clean and well maintained as possible. I also try and accommodate requests such as early arrival where I can. Property Owner

  • "The flat was well positioned for visiting Buxton."

    It was clean and well equipped. The weather turned wet and cold, the only downside was the bedroom radiators which only came on for some reason for an hour at tea time and remained cold. The owner did look and on the day she came they were lovely and warm but only came on once a day afterwards. A good job the bed duvets were warm!

    Thank you Mrs Crossley for your kind comments, what a shame the weather wasn’t so good for your stay in Buxton but glad you found the flat comfortable and it had everything you needed. I did indeed visit the property on the day you reported the issue with the radiator with my plumber. As you said, they were all lovely and warm so we were hopeful the issue had resolved itself. I am sorry to hear that it didn't and I hope it didn’t spoil your stay. As I live locally I am always happy to come and deal with any issues as they arise. Although I didn’t have an opportunity to come and resolve this during your stay as I was unaware that the issue had continued, having read your review I went down with my plumber again and have now found the air lock in the system that was stopping the warm water getting to the last couple of radiators in the system. We are happy for guests to adjust the thermostat to suit their own needs and yes we do have good bedding and an ample supply of blankets as well on hand. We hope to see you again in the future so you can perhaps explore Buxton in the sunshine. Property Owner

  • "The Garden Flat is perfectly situated, close to the centre of Buxton but quiet and with off-street parking."

    The flat was well furnished and equipped and scrupulously clean. Lots of information about the flat and Buxton and surroundings was provided, both before our stay and when we arrived. A welcome pack of a bottle of wine and home made fudge was waiting for us on arrival. As the weather wasn't great on our trip to Buxton, having a very comfortable place to stay was really appreciated. Highly recommended!

    Many thanks for your kind comments, we try hard to make our guests stay very special and always take any feedback on board and welcome the opportunity to think about making our holiday let as good as it can be. We had an unfortunate incident last year where an ingress of water meant much of the furniture and flooring was damaged and needed to be replaced. The one thing we were'nt happy about after all the work had been done were the sofas as we struggled to find any in the timescale needed to accommodate our next guests. They do the job but are just a bit stiff, we actually asked guests to feel free to bounce on them to try and break them in! We also provide lots of cushions and blankets in the meantime so you can snuggle up and make yourselves comfortable. We left a note in the guest book and asked for comments as we couldn't afford to replace them at that time but wanted to see if guests felt when the money was available next if we should get some better ones. We appreciate your feedback on this and am also relieved that you are only the second guest since April to mention them in a negative way. They are on our list of things to replace when we can and hopefully that will be within the next 3/4 months assuming we continue to have plenty of bookings over the next year. We are also sorry to hear you weren't happy with the shower. This is a new shower and we did invest in a good one when we upgraded last year. When I am in on Friday, I will check that everything on the shower is set correctly to ensure the best possible shower experience! I hope you will agree that the shower is spacious and clean, the bathroom is lovely and warm and we provide plenty of large soft towels for you to use during your stay. If there is anything else you want to mention to me directly I am happy for you to contact me by email and thanks again for your kind comments I am glad you had a good stay. Property Owner

  • "While we have very high expectations of Sykes' Cottages, and had already spent a Christmas holiday in The Garden Flat, we were pleased this time not to experience problems with the key safe!"

    Since Christmas 2016 the hedge beside the parking area had been trimmed back, making parking simpler especially in the dark and allowing the passenger to get in and out once the vehicle was parked. These may seem very minor matters in the overall scheme of things yet are typical of the owner's careful attention to detail that contributes to a successful and rewarding holiday. Top marks!

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.
