Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

Another wonderful stay, our fifth.
This was our fifth stay at The Servants Quarters, so that should tell you a thing or two. Pete and Catherine continue to provide top notch service; providing clean and comfortable accommodations and checking in to make sure we had everything we needed when the weather took a turn. We look forward to catching up again on our sixth stay.

Very good location
What a pleasure it was to stay at the Servants' Quarters in Buxton and is very close to all amenities. The attention to detail and the cleanliness were outstanding, and the use of natural cleaning products was also welcomed. A lovely welcome package on arrival made us feel very spoilt. A visit from Pete was also very welcome and he offered a lot of information about Buxton and the surrounding area. Would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone who is thinking of staying in the Peaks / Buxton area.

A fantastic stay in the Servants Quarters
Just came back from a family holiday at Servants' Quarter in October. This is our second time staying in the cottage, we had a great time both times. The property is located conviently, you have lots of local walks/resturants/bars/pubs within walking distance. Sainsburys just around the corner. Plenty of attractions nearby within 30 mins of driving distance. There is no desinated parking for the property, but we always managed to find a parking space close by. The accomendation is spotless clean, very warm and confertable, has everything you need and more, a truely home from home experience. Welcome pack was very generous, consist of a small milk, eggs, tea cakes, choclate, homemade bread and a bottle of white or red wine. There is tea/coffee at the property, even a coffee machine with beans provided. The place has certainly exceeded our expectations, can not fault it in any single way. The communication from Pete were amazing. He was very informative, his local knowledge is amazing, suggested a few places to eat/drink/walk, and they are all very good. The weather wasn't the best when we were there, but there are plenty of wet weather activities to do in the area too, for example, a bit of shopping/Poole's caven which is just 10 mins drive, a very good bookshop just outside of Buxton....the list can go on. And the cottage is well equipped for films/games/books for a cosy day in too. Overall, a very pleasant stay and we will certainly return. Thank you Pete and Caroline for providing such a wonderful accomendation, we had a fantastic time and will certainly return.

Best accommodation of our whole trip
On this holiday we’ve travelled from Cornwall to Shetland and we have no hesitation in saying that the Servants’ Quarters is the best accommodation of our whole trip! We really appreciate the help and kindness both before and during our time here and the friends who joined us were very much impressed too. A cosy and comfortable home from home. We’ll definitely recommend The Servants’ Quarters and would like to say a big thank you to Pete and Catherine.

GREAT ACCOMMODATION
Brilliant location. On-street parking. Left the car for 5 nights and walked everywhere! Characterful, quiet self-catering accommodation with fascinating history. Warm and snug - essential considering the roads had only just reopened after Buxton had been cut off by blizzards and there was still plenty of snow about. Checked in using keybox. Family dropped by later to ensure all was okay, and we felt welcome to contact them if needed. Super box of goodies on arrival. Love the eco-friendly approach to everything from munchies to cleaning materials. Recycling gets my vote. Accommodation over 3 floors. One is below street level with steep stairs; property unsuitable for those with mobility issues. Well-appointed kitchen with dining table and every appliance you could need. Sitting room with TV & iPlayer, DVDs and supply of books. Bathroom with large separate shower on the middle floor is great for dripping brollies and soaking waterproofs. Bedrooms very comfortable with plenty of space. My friend and I really enjoyed our stay, and strongly recommend The Servants Quarters.

Back again.....
This one of many returns we've made to the Servants' Quarters over the past few years. It's in the perfect location for visiting Buxton and the surrounding locations or you can just spend a couple of days relaxing in this lovely accommodation. The cottage has all you need for a self catering holiday and is warm and comfortable in the winter and light and airy in the summer. Pete and Catherine are wonderful hosts and will drop by when you arrive to make sure everything is as it should be. They also leave a welcome pack of bread (freshly baked), Buxton Tea loaf, eggs, milk, tea and sugar so you can have that welcome brew as soon as you arrive. We'll certainly be visiting again.

Lovely Buxton
Super place to stay - we had a lovely short break. Clean and well equipped with great eco credentials and an attentive host. Very close to the Pavilion Gardens which were beautiful in their autumn glory. Lovely welcome basket including a massive loaf of homemade bread which was awesome! I'd definitely recommend The Servants Quarters and we hope to return.

About the neighbourhood
The historic market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. It has a long history as a spa town due to its geothermal spring which rises at a constant temperature of 28 °C. It was initially developed by the Romans around AD 78, when the settlement was known as Aquae Arnemetiae, or the spa of the goddess of the grove. Buxton has some lovely buildings - notably John Carr's Georgian Crescent and the Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham (architect of many of London's finest theatres). It also has a thriving music and arts festival each summer. The town is easily navigated by foot (if you can cope with the odd hill) and benefits from a direct train service into Manchester. The town is also well served by buses to Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, Manchester and the surrounding National Park.
Getting around
The Servants' Quarters is located right in the centre of Buxton, just a road away from the picturesque Pavilion Gardens and Opera House. You can easily walk to the majority of the attractions, shops and restaurants Buxton has to offer. The house is 10-15 minutes walk from Buxton Railway Station which has direct trains into Manchester Piccadilly Station. Buxton Market Place is 2 minutes walk away - from here there are a wide range of bus services to the local towns, Sheffield, Manchester and (direct) to Manchester Airport.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Buxton is surrounded by the glorious Peak District National Park. If travelling by car why not stop off for a short walk, take in a view or visit one of the areas stately homes (Chatsworth, Haddon, Keddleston, Lyme Park). For those travelling from London the nearest Mainline train station is 12 miles away in Macclesfield (1 hour 50 mins direct from London Euston). The No. 58 bus takes you over the hills into Buxton on the Cat and Fiddle road - one of the most stunning routes in the area.
