Southmead B&B Accommodation - about the house and the surrounding area
Our Edwardian House was constructed in local stone around 1905. It was a substantial family home until converted to its current use by George and Ruth in 2007.
At Southmead we offer a variety of en-suite bedrooms including twin, king-size and double. You will always be assured of a good breakfast in our guest dining room with a choice of cereals, fruit juices and cooked breakfasts. We normally offer a two course evening meal with a choice of meat or vegetarian main dish. For those who require it we offer a packed lunch. On a warm, sunny evening you may wish to enjoy the garden at Southmead and perhaps even try a game of garden croquet. Alternatively, you may wish to take advantage of our spacious guest lounge with its ample supply of books, maps, local information and games.
Buxton has a wealth of interest in addition to being a lovely country town. There is an excellent shopping centre but many buildings of significant architectural and historical interest. For example, there's the Opera House, the Pavillion Gardens, the Octagon, The Pump Room and the Crescent.
The Pavillion Gardens and the river provide a beautiful setting for a gentle stroll.
For those of you who are interested in historic houses, Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and Haddon Hall, home of the Dukes of Rutland are both within easy reach and only a little further afield is Hardwick Hall. You may recognise these from their featuring in many recent films and TV productions.
