"Excellent accommodation, extremely well equipped,lovely location and highly recommended"

Mr and Mrs Hoyland.

"The place is lovely. Home from home and a great place to unwind. It's easy to walk into Buxton and on the doorstep of so many interesting places to visit. I would definitely recommend to anyone"

The Jessop family.

"This is the best accommodation we have stayed in for a long time. Excellent"

Mr and Mrs Mercer.

" I am notoriously hard to please when it comes to accommodation but this apartment not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. It was spotlessly clean (a priority for me) and beautifully furnished. It had everything we needed and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would return again and again.

Lovely place will be back.

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay. The apartment was excellent and had everything you could wish for. Very modern, spotlessly clean and so comfortable. Vernon was very helpful and always willing to assist us in any way. Have no hesitation in recommending his apartment to anyone visiting this lovely area. Ellen and Anthony Nicholson.

Top notch accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment. It looked like it had been recently renovated and continued everything we needed. Restaurants were only a short walk away. We visited the Peak District National Park, and the Blue John mine. We also visited Chatsworth, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Darbyshire. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice place to stay while visiting the area around Buxton.

Excellent spotless and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for walking into town all the amenities we could wish for. Lovely view from the bay window and with the window open hearing the birds singing and tweetering was an extra bonus. Thank you
