About Vernon Francis

I am a retired Senior Police Officer having completed 30 years Public Service.

Vernon Francis purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Vernon Francis chose High Peak District

We stayed in the area for a few days and travelled to a number of areas. We immediately fell in love with Buxton as it offered the best combination of rural and cosmopolitan living.

What makes this apartment unique

Easy access to fine restaurants, theatre, arts and walking.

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 apartment...brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Myself, husband and 2 friends stayed the Laurels for 2 nights and the apartment was perfect for our needs.

Lovely decor, spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean.

Easy and straightforward to book and the owner, Vernon, was very pleasant to communicate with and replied promptly to any questions I had.

It is close to the town centre, 5 minute walk to all amenities including some lovely pubs and restaurants...we particularly liked the Buxton Tap for good food & drink.

A walk to Solomon's Temple is well worth the effort for the views and easy to get to by foot from Buxton. For the more serious walkers, there are some great walks around Goyt Valley/Errwood Reservoir.

Overall a wonderful visit, love Buxton, loved the apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

Fantastic property! Very well maintained, seemed like it was brand new. The location was perfect for walking to the town center; shopping, entertainment and Pubs. Communications with the owner, Francis, was excellent. I would highly recommend this property and will return in the future! Thank you.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several Peak District properties over the years and this has to be one of the best! Very comfortable and warm, beautifully decorated and furnished and in an ideal location for The Dome, Opera House and town centre restaurants. First floor apartment accessed via 2 flights of stairs.

Ideal for Buxton and Area Breaks

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely self contained two bedroom apartment within what is a lovely house. The apartment has clearly been fully modernised and is light and airy. There is a lovely kitchen/lounge and bathroom. Bedrooms are not huge but plenty of storage and have very comfortable beds. Not best of weather on arrival but apartment heated up very quickly on arrival and heating not needed after that as morning sun comes thru lounge windows in the morning.Parking is on the property not the road and it was literally five minutes walk to the Opera House in one direction and about the same to the Train Station and/or supermarkets in another. Is slightly up hill coming back but nothing like the steep hill up the other side of town.

There is so much to do and see in Buxton and the surrounding area that I am sure we will be back again and won't be looking beyond this property if it is available. Finally just need to thank owner who was not only prompt at replying but very helpful with any questions we had, although there is comprehensive guides and information in the apartment when you get there.
