  • "Ivy House is a great place to escape to."

    Luxurious and well maintained, perfectly placed to explore the Peaks. Being in Buxton is great because there’s a wealth of restaurants to explore after a hard days hiking!

  • "Great house: spacious, warm, quiet location and within easy walking distance of Buxton Centre."

    Well equipped and also with basic food essentials on arrival which were much appreciated. Lovely big kitchen diner for cooking, chatting and being together plus enough space for everyone to spread out. Hot tub was all ready for us on arrival! Loved it!

  • "Ivy House was an ideal place to stay for our holiday from overseas."

    With young children, it’s often the small things which help, so providing plastic bowls and beakers, as well as some toys and games etc was great. Proximity to the Buxton gardens, pavilion and playgrounds was so convenient as less than 10 minutes along the Serpentine Walk. The house was clean and well presented, as per photos. Children didn’t get to use the back garden much due to weather however would be lovely in summer, as would terrace. Properly is highly recommended and we’d stay 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.
