    “We had a wonderful stay with the comforts and conveniences of Woodlands obviously playing a large part.”

    The downsides for us were the lack of toilet rolls, food recycling bags and the poor lighting in the main room. In our opinion there was not enough lighting and this was badly compromised by the number of 'spent' bulbs. We don't want this review published as Woodlands is a great place and isn't deserving of major criticisms but we would like our comments passed on to the owners please to enhance the experience for future guests. Thank you.

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.
