“Excellent family friendly house in the middle of the peak district”
Reviewed April 22, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The house was in excellent order and provided a great venue for a family get together. Heating worked wonderfully well. Dining room was fabulous and allowed us all to sit round in comfort and enjoy many meals together. Kitchen and bedrooms were great and conservatory was a great place to gather in the morning for coffee and a chat. The house was only a short walk from town and the peak district was a beautiful as ever.

“Spacious, warm, comfortable home conveniently located to country walks and town centre”
Reviewed April 15, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

The house was spacious for our Dad's 80th birthday gathering. Dining room perfect for family dinners and the 'Lazy Susan' was the star attraction at each meal. Bedrooms warm and comfortable and we enjoyed the games room.

Perfectly located for activities in the countryside or the town centre - would recommend!

Your time taken to post a review is much appreciated. I am delighted to read that you had such a great week celebrating your Dad’s 80th birthday, my property hosts several family celebrations a year, as you say the dining table is quite an attraction. Please consider returning on a future occasion.

“Excellent Property”
Reviewed January 8, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We really enjoyed out stay at the property. It is a little more expensive than we normally pay, but you could see the difference in the value. Spacious property that was clean and warm.
The kitchen was well equipped and CLEAN!
Plenty of space in the living room and dining room.
Being able to park in the garage and in front of the garages as well as that part of the road made parking very easy for six cars.

as dogs are allowed, and the area is great for walking one suggestion to make small improvement is to have an outside tap - to rinse off dogs and muddy boots? Not a biggy, but a thought.
New oven gloves woudl also be great.
Overall a great property

Many thanks for taking time to write a positive review of your new year stay. We thought we had addressed the hosing down of dogs and boots with the hose pipe connected to the internal garage tap, there being a soakaway in the garage forecourt, possibly hidden by the parked cars.

“A Beaut in Buxton!!”
Reviewed September 28, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We booked a large family group, with two dogs for a weekend in this beautiful house and we wasn't disappointed.
The house is very clean, tastefully decorated and furnished, extremely well equipped with everything you need, including baby and toddler equipment and toys.
It's wonderfully spacious with lovely comfortable beds and plenty of room for dining and the living room area. There is also a very good games room in the basement. The garden is very pretty, well secure for dogs and a seating and barbecue area. Plenty of parking for large groups directly outside the house was also a bonus.We were met by the owner who was incredibly kind and helpful and even baked a lovely fresh loaf of bread when we arrived! A lot of care and attention to detail has gone into this beautiful house and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Buxton.
