About dharl ltd

This is our first holiday home in Buxton. We have visited many self-catering properties in the UK and abroad and we have tried to combine what makes for a cosy house with all the practical things you need to make your stay easy. We have set a standard price for all year round which reflects good value for families as I hate to see prices go through the roof on school holidays. Those without children you get the flexibility of your own house at a price comparable to local bed and breakfasts.

dharl ltd purchased this house in 2014

Why dharl ltd chose Buxton

Buxton has all the amenities you need to make for a fantastic holiday or short break. It provides a great spot for enjoying everything the surrounding Peak District has to offer but plenty to do on your door step.

The house is great for sharing with friends or families. We have tried to include everything you need so you can focus on an enjoyable break.

Very stylish house. Lots of lovely features.

  • 3 of 5

Slightly disappointed. Some bulbs missing, one towel per person. Incomplete instructions for central heating. Kitchen bakeware and cookery utensils were extremely good, however. Beds comfy, showers fine, good location. Also, given the numbers of electronic devices people use these days, we think extension leads in all bedrooms would be nice .

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments Madaline and sorry to note you were slightly disappointed with your stay. We do try and be very clear on what guests can expect through realistic photographs, clear before arrival instructions, signposting to a comprehensive house folder in the kitchen with detailed operating instructions on everything from the heating to the hairdryer and local area information. It would have been helpful if you had contacted me during your stay and i could have had the opportunity to assist at the time. All guests are given our contact number and e mail contact and encouraged to contact us if they have any questions. We do try and check that all light bulbs are working after each guest however as light bulbs can expire at any time we always leave a number of spare light bulbs for guests to replace themselves in such incidences in the pantry. We do provide a general hand towel in the bathroom, tea towels and one large towel for each guest which for a 2 or 3 night stay would not be unreasonable. If guests require additional towels we can make these available if asked. There are comprehensive instructions including the manufacturers handbook for operating the heating in the guest book in the kitchen and summary instructions in the cupboard where the boiler is sited. As it has been very hot recently the heating had been turned off, which we have made guests aware of but the boiler is very simple to operate and the heating can easily be turned back on along with two fires, one in the front room and the other in the kitchen. If any guest has difficulties we are more than willing to explain things verbally or pop in to sort something out if guests let us know. To provide flexibility for guests on their arrival times we do not currently offer a meet and greet service on arrival but we are more than willing to offer this for guests so we can give a personal guide to the property and we will amend our pre arrival information to reflect this option in the future. There are between 4 and 8 electric plug sockets in each bedroom so hopefully that should satisfy most people's electric needs!! many thanks Alison

Excellent, recommended to large families wanting to enjoy Buxton (as long as you don't mind a small lounge). Location near park made it great for the children

Homely house centrally located

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyable stay here for a long weekend for a family wedding. Comfortable, clean and well equipped house within walking distance of the town and gardens. Double yellow line outside so problem parking to unpack/pack car but plenty of parking nearby at other times. Would recommend.
