Persimmon Homes


At the furthermost tip of north Derbyshire in the exquisite Peak District, your new home in Buxton is near elegant regency architecture, a prosperous High Street and even a well with some of the purest spring water in the world. The town has an Edwardian Opera House which hosts the Buxton Festival as well as the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival. The neighbouring Pavilion Gardens hosts markets, has a playground and even a miniature railway in summer. Your new build in Buxton in the Peak District will be a brilliant place to raise a family.

Surrounded by hills, Buxton is formed in a natural bowl often giving it a climate all of its own – in fact in June 1975 a cricket match against Lancashire was postponed because of snow.

Living in Buxton

Great walking from your new home in Derbyshire

Your new house in the Peak District will have walking straight from the front door. If you enjoy a ramble, you will love the Buxton to Combs reservoir walk, The Roaches and Luds Church is famous for Arthurian legends and is a great place to see Peregrine Falcons. Head out from your new house in Buxton to the Errwood Reservoir, where in summer you can see the remains of the tiny hamlet of Goyts Bridge still visible in the cold grey waters.
