About Sue Wright

Twenty years ago we came to live in the USA. For visiting family and children in UK we acquired the Old Stables in Buxton. Its location and amenities are perfect. Now we are retired we visit as often as we can and enjoy this beautiful part of England .We are glad to share our holiday home for others to enjoy the Peak District

Sue Wright purchased this barn in 2006

Why Sue Wright chose Buxton

When visiting family we found The Old Stables a great place for us to stay. Once the Duke of Devonshire's city stables, the place has given us a quirky yet spacious home and being on an adopted road parking is good and there are no cars rushing by. The property is just off the Market Square in this old spa town, so it is close to everything Buxton has to offer.The Opera House, The Pavilion Gardens, swimming pool, shops

and tea rooms, great restaurants, pubs with good food and takeaways. Pool Caverns, Go Ape, Solomon's Temple all within easy walking distance and a little further afield Chatsworth House and Alton Towers. We love the property because once you get to Buxton there is little need to get back in the car until you leave.

What makes this barn unique

We love staying at The Old stables because there is so much to do for every age within walking distance.The park with its obligingly greedy ducks are a great hit with little people. The Opera House has great shows, the antique shops are fascinating and the surrounding hills of the Peak District are wonderful year round for walking but especialy at Easter time with the skipping lambs and at the end of the day the dining out is excellent and just a quick walk home .

Further Details:

The Derbyshire region

Buxton is situated one thousand feet above sea level, and yet surrounded by hills, it has enjoyed a reputation for more than two centuries as 'the Bath of the North'.

A splendid concoction of magnificent architecture, fine hotels, more than twenty acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, excellent modern facilities for shopping and eating out, and the internationally renowned Buxton Opera House, Buxton offers a great deal for visitors of all ages and interests.

The famous waters of Buxton's warm springs are, historically and physically at the centre of the town's development. The Romans, who called the place Aquae Arnementiae, were the first to take the plunge and through the centuries many thousands of visitors have travelled to the spa town in the hills to sample the supposedly health giving waters.


The Old Stables is just minutes away from the Pavillion Gardens, The Opera House, restaurants, pubs, quaint gift and antique shops, cafés and good High Street shopping.

Buxton, a Georgian spa town, is close to Roaches Rocks for climbing, Dovedale for walking, underground caves like the Blue John Mines for exploring. You can walk right from The Old Stables to Pool's Cavern and through beautiful woodland to Solomon's Temple for great scenic views of the area. Alton Towers is only 3/4 hours drive away and Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are great days out.
