  • "This is one of the best properties we've had the pleasure in staying."

    Everything was spotlessly clean. There was more than enough kitchen equipment and seating space. The lounge was great with a good TV. The whole house was warm and it was easy to turn up or down the radiators in each room. All the bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of towels and and bedding. All the showers worked properly. We enjoyed the garden room looking out at the lovely garden. We came up to the house in the awful wind and rain in October. The house owner very kindly rang us to let us know about the flooding in the area. She later texted us to check that we had arrive safely. What more could we ask for! PS Sorry for being late in completing a survey.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback about your stay at The Stables. So glad you had a comfortable stay despite arriving on such a stormy day! Best regards, Heather Property Owner

    Buxton is a really nice town and there are lots of attractions both within and nearby in the Peak District.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Stables."

    Both the sleeping and living faciities were first class, impecably clean and well equiped. The kitchen was great and as far as equipment goes we wanted for nothing. The location was first class with regards to a short walk in to Buxton, ideal for shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants. It was also central for some lovely walks and a short drive to beuty spots. We had three cars and off street parking was easy.

  • "The stables was a perfect holiday base for us."

    Buxton has a wide variety of restaurants, open spaces, walks, with easy access to the wider Derbyshire loveliness. The house is in a quiet position, plenty of room for everyone to spread out with a fantastic garden space, safe parking for our three cars, comfy beds, very well equipped, lots of advice and recommendations of things to do, in fact anything and everything we needed was provided. We were able to park our cars up and use pubic transport a few times which we like to do when we can. We had a great time, thank you very much for letting us stay. We may well be back again someday.

  • "The Stables is a lovely, large, family cottage in the heart of Buxton within easy, walking distance of shops and restaurants."

    The listing is highly detailed and accurately descriptive. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, and would comfortably suit the most demanding of chefs. The rockery garden is on two levels, with steps down to a bridge over a lovely stream, and with access at the rear to a playing field that is good for exercising a dog. It is an older property that is well-cleaned and maintained, and my only minor adverse comments are that, while the main bathroom is light and spacious, the two ensuite shower rooms are very tight, and the water pressure and temperature is variable when multiple guests are using the bathrooms at the same time. This is a charming, characterful house that feels like a home, and we loved our stay here.

    Thank you for your kind review of our cottage. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the kitchen, the stream in the garden and the convenient location in Buxton. The property is indeed a much loved home from home and dates from the late 1800s. The ensuites have been added to provide more privacy for guests, one is certainly on the smaller side, but the other is more spacious with a large double shower unit. There is a larger bathroom with corner bath if preferred and also a downstairs toilet, so I hope most guests would find the bathroom arrangements satisfactory for their holiday. My apologies if they did not meet your expectations on this occasion. The water pressure has been a little low in Buxton recently due to the unusually dry weather and the water board has been working to improve this - I hope this did not spoil your enjoyment of your holiday.

    It’s ideal for a family or friends’ get together. The lounge and kitchen are especially large and spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped and has good sociable space. There is a very useful utility area and the outside garden area is a delight. The house is well placed in Buxton and has its own gated parking area which is a bonus. It’s just a five minute walk to the main shopping area. Will most certainly visit again. The owners are also very helpful.

  • "Great location near to everything and good parking."

    Kitchen was really well equipped and there was a lovely garden. Only a few negatives; for the high price tag we would have expected a bit better standard of housekeeping. There was a lots of cobwebs throughout & looks like furniture is rarely moved to clean around, lots of crumbs under sofa cushions etc. The house sleeps 10, we were a party of 9 but the lounge only comfortably seats 6, we had 3 kids so they used the beanbags but if you were a party of all adults you would not all have a comfortable seat if using the lounge together. TV was very small for the room and only 1 in the house. Apart from that we had a great week and the owner could not have been more helpful on the email with lots of useful information.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you had a good week and enjoyed staying at our cottage. After going to a lot of trouble to answer all your queries before arrival, I was sorry to read your comments about the price, cleanliness, seating and television. The cottage is maintained to a very high standard of cleaning, as attested by our 4.9 "Outstanding" rating from other guest reviews. If it fell short on this occasion I can only apologise. The housekeepers do normally clean underneath the cushions and move furniture as needed. Cobwebs are a constant battle in an old country cottage, but I would like to assure future guests that the house has recently been thoroughly deep cleaned after all the back to back bookings over the summer. No one has previously commented on the price being unreasonable and this is largely set by Sykes Cottages according to demand at the time of booking. We consider that the living room would look overly full if more seating was added, but additional chairs can be moved in from the hall if needed, plus there is a further garden sitting room with 2 comfortable settees. We have never felt the need to increase the television size or quantity, as this has not been mentioned before, but all these details are clear from the photos and description and perhaps just a matter of personal preference.

    Plenty of room so that you can find some space for a bit of alone time if required. Small point but considering the house is for 10 people so the dishwasher went on every day, there was only 3 tablets so bought some more. There were a few cobwebs around the house so lost 1 mark but generally it was clean. Would visit again

    Thank you for your feedback. Our housekeepers do a great job in presenting The Stables to a very high standard, normally scoring 100% on cleanliness, as indicated by other guest reviews.

    Thank you for your feedback, June, sorry if the sofa was not to your taste. We have replaced the bean bags and footstools since your visit, as well as new linen, bed throws, towels and other equipment this year. The suite in the lounge is of a high quality but designed to look homely and "lived in", which perhaps does not suit everyone.

    The only drawback for us were the steps down to the garden which our elderly dog could not manage, however for someone with a more mobile pet the property would be ideal as there is a gate from the garden onto a path leading to an area where the dog can be exercised. There were only 5 in our party so the shower situation wasn’t an issue - this might be more of a problem if 10 people stayed, but I’m sure can be managed! Overall this is a lovely property and we would stay again.

The property

A fantastic five bedroom, semi-detached stable conversion within walking distance of many independent shops and restaurants in Buxton, on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

This delightful cottage has lots of sociable space making it ideal for a large family get together or group of ten friends.

Inside this lovely cottage there is a well-equipped, modern kitchen with breakfast island, plus a large dining table, making it the perfect place for a hearty group breakfast or an evening banquet.

From here step through to the utility room which is great for drying out walking kit and pooch.

This leads on to a delightful garden room with comfy sofas and a living flame stove with double French windows, opening out to a beautiful deck with alfresco dining area.

There is a further larger sitting room with very tasteful furniture, cushions and throws, which makes for a cosy night around the living flame stove, maybe watching a movie or just discussing the next day's plans.

A glass door leads to the impressive entrance hall which has a further table and chairs, perfect for a little breakaway group or kiddie's playtime.

At the end of a very full day, climb the stairs to the extremely comfortable, light and roomy bedrooms all finished to a high standard or maybe take a soak in the large corner bath to ease those aches and pains.

Outside this attractive cottage there is a deck, along with a terraced area elevated over the beautiful garden and from here you can step over the little footbridge which crosses the babbling brook into a further graveled secret garden with more seating.

Children (and adults for that matter) can run off steam by stepping through a gate straight on to a park with play area and football pitch.

Tempted though you may be to enjoy your whole break in this delightful home from home, it would be a shame to miss out on the almost endless choice of things to do in the area.

Buxton has a great array of eateries, bars, pubs and independent shops and the Opera House has a year-round programme of international stars and shows.

Together with the Peak District National Park a very short hop away, there is something for everyone every day of the year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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.
