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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The Laurels is a beautifully appointed apartment which has been a superb base for our break in the Peak District - We will definitely be back"

Mr and Mrs Hibbert.

"Excellent accommodation, extremely well equipped,lovely location and highly recommended"

Mr and Mrs Hoyland.

"The place is lovely. Home from home and a great place to unwind. It's easy to walk into Buxton and on the doorstep of so many interesting places to visit. I would definitely recommend to anyone"

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.

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.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is fitted out to an extremely high standard. I could quite gladly live in it and it is so close to the town, literally a short walk down the hill. Had an amazing relaxing break to celebrate my birthday and would highly recommend. The email I received with all the details on was really clear to follow and in the apartment there was a file with all information that you needed.

Truly an amazing place to stay, thanks so much for a fab experience

Lovely modern apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Quiet location but only a short walk to the centre of town. The owner was also very helpful. We would certainly recommend it.

Excellent luxury property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, with everything you could want. Good location as not far to walk in to Buxton centre. We never used the car once we arrived. Veron the owner has thought of everything and because you are on the first floor it's lovely having the view. The apartment is furnished to a very high luxury standard and was immaculate.

We went to The Dome and had lunch for £10 each which was cooked and served by the 1st year students. Silver service food exquisite and wine. Total cost with wine £33.00 for 2 it's a must do!!! (Table has to be pre booked). We also went to a show at The Opera House.

Buxton is very pretty and lots of history and good restaurants.

We would definitely would go again.

Karen, Leicestershire
