  • "The cottage was really lovely and clean and felt homely."

    Good instructions on how to operate the various devices in the property. Easy access to the town centre and the motor way. I would happily look to stay in Heron House again on my next visit to the Peak District.

  • "Having not used Sykes cottages before we were a little apprehensive before our stay but there was no need at all."

    Heron house was just incredible, so clean and well looked after with all basics provided for. As a result our 2 boys and us were able to relax into our holiday right away and had a very comfortable week there.

    Karen was a great host, communication was easy and attentive. The place is in a great location only 5 minutes walk to the pavilion gardens and centre of Buxton and it's and easy drive to get to all the Peak District attractions.

  • "Heron House was a great holiday let."

    It is a short level walk to the Pavilion Gardens and the centre of Buxton. The house was well furnished; the king size bed was very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The conservatory and the garden was an added bonus. Would definitely book again.

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.
