As other reviewers have said, the flat was surprisingly large, which was nice; lots of room for our 22 month old to run around in! We stayed in the flat over Christmas and it was very cosy; the centra… More

"Excellent property for a Buxton and Peak District stay"
We stayed here for a long weekend in December. The flat is in a quiet location, but just 5-10 minutes walk from the town centre and station. A short walk in the other direction leads to Corbar Woods. … More

"Comfortable and Spacious"
The flat is spacious, comfortable and well equiped. The weather was quite cold when we were there and the heating worked well. We found the neighbourhood quite and peaceful (at least, until our children arrived !). Be warned that though it is only a short walk from the centre of Buxton, this is up quite a steep hill.

"Brilliant location, nice spacious flat"
I found this apartment on the internet and took my partner away for the weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the impressive building and the flat was very spacious and practical. It is in an ideal location for the theatre, shopping and walks and there was ample parking at all times. I have since been back with my sister and would recommend this to anyone looking for a break in Buxton or the surrounding area.

"Clean, well equiped and great location for Buxton"
This is the second time we have stayed here and the accommodation has always been clean and tidy. The pictures don't do it justice, as the flat is very big and there is a lot of space.
We come to Buxton for the opera yearly, usually staying in a B&B, but the flat provides more flexibility. It's walking distance to the opera and the train station, which is a great plus for us, some of the other places we've stayed haven't been as convenient.
The garden is shared, but the Park in Buxton is very close too - I'd recommend the toy train if the weather is fine!
Overall it has been great for what we needed it for. Will stay here again next year.
