  • "Amazingly well stocked and comfortable home."

    I say home as it is more than a house. The summer room is a great place to sit and read or watch the birds or the autumn colours in the garden. Very comfortable beds. The property is in a fantastic location for the town and all it has to offer . Superb communication from Heather though we didn’t need to contact her as there were no issues.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback, Carol. We hope to welcome you again to The Stables next year. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean, spacious and comfortable."

    The kitchen in particular was very well equipped. It was great to have loads of parking space, and the playpark at the back was much appreciated by the toddler in our party.

    Thank you for your kind review, Wilson. We have a wonderful team of housekeepers who do a fantastic job :) Property Owner

  • "It was a peaceful cottage with everything we as a family needed and a bit more to explore."

    A place to relax and laugh, to stretch out and unwind. The location was just right, a short walk to the centre of Buxton, near to rail and road links to travel out for a day and come to our home from home. Lovely facilities, comfortable beds and kitchen and lounge well thought out by the owners, games , films, activities and equipment were all there where we needed it. Wonderful place , highly recommended..

    Thank you for this kind and thoughtful review, Deborah, much appreciated. The Stables really is a hidden gem for visiting Buxton and making the most of all the pubs and restaurants in walking distance. We hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Could do with replacing the sofa's and chair"

    Thank you for your feedback, June, sorry if the sofa was not to your taste. We have replaced the bean bags and footstools since your visit, as well as new linen, bed throws, towels and other equipment this year. The suite in the lounge is of a high quality but designed to look homely and "lived in", which perhaps does not suit everyone. We always replace furnishings and equipment when needed but most people seem to find the house very comfortable, so I was sad to read that this was your only review on our cottage. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage which suited our needs well."

    The only drawback for us were the steps down to the garden which our elderly dog could not manage, however for someone with a more mobile pet the property would be ideal as there is a gate from the garden onto a path leading to an area where the dog can be exercised. There were only 5 in our party so the shower situation wasn’t an issue - this might be more of a problem if 10 people stayed, but I’m sure can be managed! Overall this is a lovely property and we would stay again.

    The property is very clean and well equipped. There were between 6 and 10 of us over the Christmas week as people were arriving and leaving the whole time we were there. We had 2 dogs with us as well. There was plenty of room for everyone. The garden area with the little stream was beautiful - there’s a garden gate that takes you to a nearby park and field. Lots of parking at the property. It was all simply perfect. (Bigger or more dustbins might be an idea)

    Great location close to the town centre, but also with the moorland countryside nearby. The cottage is furnished to a high standard, clean and well looked after, with all the facilities and equipment you need for a home away from home. We hope to return.

  • "The house was very well equipped and clean."

    All rooms were decorated to a high standard and the house was in a central situation for exploring the area. The only negative point was when the dishwasher failed to work. I contacted the housekeeper on the mobile number and left a message. I was happy to be contacted on my mobile phone to accommodate a repair before the next guests were due but was disappointed to not even receive an acknowledgment of my phone call.

  • "Buxton is an excellent centre for exploring the Peak District."

    Much to see in the town and easy access to the numerous walks in the surrounding hills and valleys with pretty villages and welcoming pubs for much needed refreshment. We have stayed in many holiday cottages around the UK and Europe and The Stables is probably the best and most well equipped that we have found. We even managed to deal with the limited shower availability by organising a rota, otherwise perfect.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was super for a group, large and very comfortable. Plenty of equipment in kitchen, and great sitting areas both inside and out. Having some Sky channels was a bonus for some of the group! Let down slightly by immediate surrounding area. Garden was good but had expected some grass!

  • "Although The Stables is within walking distance of Buxton centre, it is a little peaceful haven where relaxing comes easy."

    The brook running through the sloped garden is lovely, though I wouldn't want to stick my toes in it I suspect it is very cold. No views as such, but simple a lovely place to gather the family for a weekend, which we did. The Peak District is so close and easy to reach, so trips out into the country side for walks or to visit the sites, it's easy to have a wonderful time at The Stables.

  • "We booked this house for a family get-together and were a bit apprehensive about how it would turn out."

    We were delighted with it from the moment we arrived. It was large, spotless, warm, welcoming and exceptionally well equipped. The garden was beautiful and unusual and had the bonus of a back gate opening onto a pleasant (public) green space with a small playground. There are lots of shops a short walk away in town and plenty of walks for any fitness level. Would recommend!

    It was nice that as a group of 10 we could all be together in the big lounge, it was lovely to sit in the conservatory in the morning with a cup of tea and look out over the garden and the stream which ran through it. There was everything you could need in respect of the kitchen facilities and dining area to have a sit down meal in the evening. The position of the house was ideal for the short walk into the town centre and shops and the local pubs We all agreed that we would come back for a second visit in the future

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 and surrounding area were perfect. A beautiful, tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable property. Absolutely no shortage of utensils, crockery, cutlery etc., the owners have catered for every eventuality. Beautiful soft white towels adorned every bed, which were all made up with crisp white Egyptian cotton bedding. The garden is such an added bonus. So beautifully landscaped as it stretches above the gentle brook.. You can lose yourself in thought as you sit on the terraced decking or within the garden with only the gentle sound of the brook and bird song. So tranquil. We truly found a hidden gem when we booked The Stables. Highly recommend, and hope one day to return.

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.

There is a further larger sitting room with very tasteful furniture, cushions and throws, which makes for a cosy night around the living flame stove, maybe watching a movie or just discussing the next day's plans.

A glass door leads to 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 graveled 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 is 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.
