“Home from home”

We used this excellent accommodation for family and friends attending our son's wedfing.Everyone in the party and others who visited were highly comlimentary of the premises and its facilities. The interior is much more spacious than one might think from the outside . It is both quirky and interesting and the facilities and fittings are those of a family home. Booking was straightforward and both the owner and caretaker were most helpful. We hope to find a reason or excuse to visit again. We would recommend the accommodation for alll sortss of events in the lovely town of Buxton, as well as for the surrounding Peak District.

“Lovely holiday house”
Reviewed 17 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is just the sort of holiday house we love, quirky with plenty of interesting features. We had 6 adults and 4 children sharing so it's good to have plenty of rooms to spread out. The children particularly liked the gallery. The kitchen is large and, with a February cold snap, a little chilly. However, the fan heaters found in the utility room soon warmed it up. I would recommend taking slippers for the stone floors.
Very helpful notes from the owners who generously supplied a bottle of wine. Plenty of very hot water.

“Lovely place to spend Christmas”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We all had a lovely time staying at this house. It's full of character and is well located for the town and exploring Derbyshire. There is plenty of room for ten people and good amenities in the house. The only thing it needs is a bigger fridge freezer. There is also no garden but the lovely park was literally a 2 minute walk and it was no problem walking the dogs down there.

“Perfect location - comfortable house - forget the mobile......”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Shared the Old Stables with a group of girlfriends for a long weekend stay. The location is perfect - close to everything Buxton has to offer and minutes from Sainsbury's Local - always handy. The house is well-equipped and comfortable and I agree that photos do no do it justice - it's a bit like a Tardis! Yup - mobile reception is not great - but how about kicking back and forgetting the flippin' thing for a few days?
