We had a lovely stay in this flat. Kevin was really friendly when we met

The flat is really well located to visit Buxton and the Peak district in general as it is close to the main roads. Loads of supermarkets and restaurants/pubs around

Inside of the flat is as described, really nice and clean, just what you need

Lovely place, good location

  • 4 of 5

We booked this apartment for 2 nights but we didn't really spend much time in the apartment so there may be somethings that we have missed. The owners were very accommodating because we asked for an early check in and there was easy system to drop off the keys as we left quite early.

The apartment was well furnished and clean, it also had a number of additional touches such as books, games and some kitchen extras like milk and bread.

The apartment is within an easy walk of the town center and there is a Sainsbury's just round the corner.

Modern apartment. Bright and airy. Good location. Great find.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived and were welcomed by the owner, Kevin (having spoken to his wife, Lorraine, on the phone for helpful directions). He showed us around and we were taken with the apartment straight away. The first thing I noticed was how tastefully it had been decorated throughout. The sitting room was smail but did the job. The kitchen had a breakfast bar which our two 6 year olds loved! The double bedroom and bathroom were spacious but the biggest hit was the attic/mezzazine bedroom that the girls commandeered. They are still talking about it as one of the highlights of our holiday! I would point out (as I'm sure the owners have, that the stairs are steep and the steps narrow so would not suit younger children). We had a wonderful stay here and would recommend it unreservedly.
