The Roseleigh Guest House is well situated in the heart of Buxton amongst the hills of the Peak District National Park.

It is less than 5 minutes walk to Buxton Opera House and the centre of the town and is ideally located for visits to Buxton Festival and other cultural events or for exploring the Peak District and surrounding countryside.


The Duke of Devonshire originally owned the land that the Roseleigh was built on in 1870.

The Roseleigh lies on a quiet pedestrian walk and overlooks the lake set in the 23 acre Pavilion Gardens.
