    “The Stables was a lovely place for our family of 10 and plenty of space for us not to be on top of each other.”

    Very well equipped and also close to town centre, pubs, restaurants and amenities. Everything you could want close at hand, including a playing field/playground for children and dogs. The only draw back were the showers. The shower head in main bathroom kept swivelling round as you washed and the one in bedroom 1 did not maintain temperature or pressure. Otherwise we had a wonderful week and would certainly recommend this property.

The property

A fantastic five bedroom, semi-detached stable conversion in the centre of bohemian Buxton, on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

This delightful cottage has lots of sociable space making it ideal for a large family get together or group of ten friends.

Inside this lovely cottage there is a well-equipped, modern kitchen with breakfast island, plus a large dining table, making it the perfect place for a hearty group breakfast or an evening banquet fit for a king!

From here step through to the utility room which is great for drying out walking kit and pooch.

This leads on to a delightful garden room with comfy sofas and a living flame stove with double French windows opening out to a beautiful deck with alfresco dining area.

From the deck, you can step through another French window into the delightful sitting room where the very tasteful furniture and soft furnishings make for a very cosy night around the living flame stove, maybe watching a movie or just discussing the next day’s plans.

Complete the circuit back into the impressive entrance hall which has a further table and chairs perfect for a little breakaway group or kiddie’s playtime.

At the end of a very full day, climb the stairs to the extremely comfortable, light and roomy bedrooms all finished to a high standard or maybe take a soak in the large corner bath to ease those aches and pains.

Outside this attractive cottage there is a deck, along with a terraced area elevated over the beautiful garden and from here you can step over the little footbridge which crosses the babbling brook into a further gravelled secret garden with more seating.

Children (and adults for that matter) can run off steam by stepping through a gate straight on to a park with play area and football pitch.

Tempted though you may be to enjoy your whole break in this delightful home from home, it would be a shame to miss out on the almost endless choice of things to do in the area.

Buxton has a great array of eateries, bars, pubs and independent shops and the Opera House has a year-round programme of international stars and shows.

Together with the Peak District National Park a very short hop away, there’s something for everyone every day of the year.

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.
