Persimmon Homes


Loved by many for its beautiful historical architecture, inviting open spaces and vibrant array of shops, attractions and events – it’s not hard to see why the spa town of Buxton makes such a wonderful place to live. Nestled in the glorious Peak District but within an hour of Manchester, Sheffield and Stoke-on-Trent, Buxton has so much to offer.

Claim to fame

You probably know it from bottles on supermarket shelves, but the water from Buxton has been drawing tourists and even royalty for centuries. Set on the River Wye, the town has a geothermal spring which became a highly popular and lucrative attraction which led to the growth of the town and the creation of many beautiful buildings including the Grade-I listed Crescent.


Buxton is England's highest market town. It's in the heart of the Peak District National Park so it's surrounded by wonderful countryside. The A53, A515 and A6020 are the main routes that serve the town connecting it with some of the larger towns around the edge of the Peak District, including Manchester to the north and Macclesfield to the west. Buxton's railway station runs services to Stockport and Manchester on the Northern Line. It takes under an hour to get to Manchester Piccadilly.

Local amenities

As a famous Spa town, Buxton has a strong visitor economy and that brings business to town. Living here gives you all the usual local services as well as a thriving atmosphere and plenty of cafes, restaurants and independent shops to enjoy. It's a great backdrop for a new home.
