We cycled up to Buxton and were met by a very friendly landlady who allowed us to stow our bicycles in the garage. The rooms were cosy and comfortable. We were even provided the use of a hose pipe for cleaning mud from our bikes! Breakfast was very nicely prepared and cooked. Only minor complaint which I forgot to mention... More

We returned to The Old Manse after a break of around 6 years for a family holiday. The guest house had changed hands since our last visit and the new owners Elizabeth & Tim made us very welcome. The property is looking very smart. We found the rooms very comfortable and the breakfasts were superb. Elizabeth gave us some up... More

Stayed for a short break at The Old Manse in the large family room. The room was extremely comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We will most certainly return. Many thanks!

I stayed here, on business, for just one night and found such kindness as well as a very comfortable and well-appointed Guest House. Since I am very hard of hearing I had notified them of this and they both undertook to rouse me in the event on any emergencies and had written our clear instructions for me on various aspects...

We received a lovely warm welcome on arrival and were shown to our room which was immaculate. The room was beautifully decorated, the bed was large and very comfortable, the furniture was very impressive and the shower was wonderful. I recommend reading the welcome book that the owners have kindly put together as this is full of useful information. Breakfast... More

We stayed at The Old Manse Guesthouse for one night on the way up to the Lakes. Our hostess Elizabeth was very welcoming, the room was clean and warm, the bed was large and comfortable (important when you’re used to a super-king sized bed at home!) and breakfast was hearty and filling. Reasonably priced at £75 for the night for... More

Great bed, great shower, great locally sourced breakfast, clean room, modern setting, free on-street parking and friendly welcome. Couldn't have asked for more. If traveling to Buxton again I will be sure to rebook.

What can I say .... The Old Manse is a lovely building. From outside to inside. Our room was a delight to stay in. Very comfortable beds with lovely decor. Heated towel rails and great shower ... Clean and soft towels and lovely thick duvet. Our hosts were warm, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was first rate. Couldn't ask for more
