After visiting Chatsworth House in Derbeyshire, my wife and I decided to stay the night at Buxton. Following a couple of enquiries we were directed to "Stoneridge". An elegant Victorian house, close to the Pavilion Gardens. We were made very welcome by Claire and Andrew. A comfortable room. Good food. Excellent. Highly reccomended.

Stoneridge is situated on a quiet leafy lane, within easy walking distance of a range of restaurants, shops and bars. The room was spotless, the bed was comfortable and there were lots of well thought out finishing touches. The breakfast was fantastic and included a wide range of fresh fruit, jams and preserves, cereals and a comprehensive menu of freshly cooked dishes. Think you Claire and Andrew.
Stayed for 2 nights with my wife and 10 month old son. Was a lovely room, and they supplied a baby cot for my son.
The room was nice and spacious and had all amenities that one needs. The only issues was there isnt a bath, only a shower.
Breakfast was nice and Claire went out of her way to give us a cheese sandwich for my son.
I lovely B&B to stay if you are in Buxton
I stayed at Stoneridge with my Mum - we were on a walking break preparing for a charity trek and planned an extended stay so we could also enjoy Buxton.
The guesthouse is gorgeous and Claire and Andrew really have thought of everything. My favourite touches? Proper coffee with a cafetiere in the room, double duvets on the twin beds (nothing worse than a teeny single duvet!), 3 pillows on each bed (one feather and two non-feather - I'm not a feather fan but mum is so both happy!), 3 towels of different sizes (hotel towels are normally tiny but the big towel was BIG), dressing gowns, Buxton water, etc etc and that's just the rooms!
On the landing there's a bookshelf full of books about the local area and a nice reading area, and there's also a lounge with sky tv.
Breakfast has everything you could want from a huge range of fruit, cereals, more jams/curds/honey than I've seen in one place before not to mention a full menu of cooked items.
They happily stored our packed lunches in their fridge (something a lot of hotels refuse to do) and they had gluten free bread which is almost unheard of - Claire acted like this is the most normal thing in the world! Well, having worked in 5 star hotels that couldn't manage this I can say it's not normal so I was really impressed!
The guesthouse is just a few minutes walk from the town centre so ideally located for exploring the town. We ate in some great local restaurants and also walked into town on our last day. It's also ideally located for local walks and sightseeing.
I don't know that I'll get to go back but if I ever have a reason to be in Buxton, or if anyone I know ever needs a suggestion on where to stay, Stoneridge will always be the first choice!
We were singing in the Buxton Festival Fringe, and have stayed here before, and were very pleased to be back. Claire and Andrew were the perfect hosts, the room was very comfortable, the breakfast superb, and the location just 5 minutes away from our concert venue. We liked the black and white themed decor throughout, even down to the 2 Scottie dogs! We will certainly return.
Delightful house, huge choice of breakfasts, perfect hosts, quiet but close to centre of Buxton, - what else could one want in a bed and breakfast. Thanks Claire and Andrew, you made our week complete.
We really enjoyed our trip to Buxton and our stay at .Stoneridge..Claire was a brilliant host,and nothing was too much trouble.The room was very pleasant with lots of extra touches ,chocolates and biscuits on the tea tray!
The breakfasts were really exceptional with so much choice,the bacon was the best ever!
The only niggle we could find was the bed ,which we both found rather hard and uncomfortable.
