  • "We enjoyed our weeks stay at this comfortable house."

    It did take us most of the week to get used to the complications of the front door security system. Parking was on the pavement at the front as close as possible to the house wall to allow passage for larger vehicles in the one way street .We did seem to notice neighbourhood sounds here more than other terrace cottages of a similar nature which we had recently rented from Sykes. The central heating system was not functioning properly on our arrival for this autumnal holiday so the house was cool. The boiler instruction manual was missing but we eventually managed to get it operating more effectively. An efficient gas fire in the lounge helped in the interim. The boiler was in the second bedroom and was noisy at night if left on. The kitchen was well equipped with a large fridge freezer and also had plenty of space in the cupboards for our own self catering needs (probably the most space we have been allocated in Sykes cottages we have rented of this size which was great!) Similarly the gas stove with its 7 hobs and 2 ovens etc was the largest I had seen. However, the oven cooling fan was noisy whilst operating which was generally whilst we were eating on the adjacent dining table The main bedroom was spacious and comfortable and had plenty of storage for our needs. The second bedroom was rather crammed with little space to move around the twin beds . The Astroturf in the back garden remained rather soggy during our stay after recent Buxton rain. We would have found an indoor clothes airer useful to dry those clothes where the tumbler dryer was not appropriate and also in the small conservatory would have preferred a pedestal type table for dining, snackng etc rather than the folding 'card' table' provided. Although we had mixed weather, we had a lovely holiday in Buxton at Stone Cottage and found plenty to occupy ourselves in the area - walking and places to visit.

  • "The cottage was really well presented, very clean and comfortable and had great facilities, as a family of four including two teenage daughters we needed nothing."

    The supplies of tea, coffee and biscuits was very welcome, while there was some salt available it would have been lovely if some oil and pepper was provided too. A very minor point but there are no negative comments to make

    Lovely house- very clean and good standard however there was lots of either cat or dog poo in the garden meaning it was unusable which was a really shame

  • "The owners were very easy to deal with, prompt to reply to queries and flexible in their decision making."

    The place is lovely and once you get used to the super tech front door lock - app based (!), all will be good. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom is lovely. Master bedroom is of good size, though mattress was a bit hard for our taste, but that is more of a personal preference and others may well find it ok. Watch it though as you walk around the bed - it has an unforgiving frame that can leave some rather sore bruises on your legs if you are not paying attention! The second bedroom is literally full with the twin beds and a chest of drawers and there is almost no space to walk - you can just about shuffle. Also, I felt a bit uncomfortable with the boiler being in the bedroom, in a massive cupboard that took a lot of space out of a small room, when there is a big size utility room where it could have been installed instead. Having said all this, the place is lovely and we had a great time in Buxton.

A short distance from Buxton town centre is this stunning terraced cottage, situated on a sloping residential street, providing a perfect base for a quiet trip to the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales.

Set over two floors, this traditional cottage welcomes you with a snug sitting room, boasting a warming gas fire resting next to the Smart TV, perfect for chilly winter nights.

Resting behind is a handy utility room which houses a basin and WC, whilst a peaceful conservatory lies opposite, providing a calming space where you can curl up with a good book and cup of tea.

The contemporary-style conservatory has access to your own private courtyard, where table and chairs offer an alternative dining arrangement and the Astroturf provides a spot for a picnic lunch on the lawn.

About the location

BUXTON

Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
