  • "Lovely accommodation, well equipped kitchen and fantastic space for large groups."

  • "Excellent accommodation, perfect for the coming together of two adult families."

    Hosts are very helpful. Location is 2-3miles from Buxton so need your own transport. We would recommend.

  • "The property was lovely, as were the complimentary biscuits (thank you very much!"

    ). The space is HUGE! There were only 4 of us and we never felt on top of each other. The kitchen was very well equipped and we didn't want for anything. Lovely and clean and bright. We all found the beds to be very comfortable- and the towels are FABULOUS!!!! I would however advise caution when booking if you have any sight or mobility concerns- there is a steep flight of stairs, with dark carpet and no rail on the wall, just the bannister. Outside, there are three steps to the front door; the second step is rather higher than the others, and again, no rail. It may not be a problem for others but it certainly caused problems for one member of our party. Other than that, I would recommend Meadowview :) (we may even return!)

  • "We had a great stay at Meadow View."

    The property was very well maintained, clean and spacious. It was also well equipped for a large group and in a lovely area. Not too far from shops and Buxton but rural enough to feel away from it all. The owners were also attentive. The only downside was the some of the beds were quite uncomfortable.

    Ventilation in the bedrooms could be better, we were very warm. However that is better than being cold. A few of the beds had spring bases that were noisy but overall comfort was good. One shower was draining slowly so perhaps needs looking at. Otherwise it was just perfect.

    The milk and biscuits inside the property were appreciated. The property was very clean and comfortable and there was plenty of room for the 9 of us. The kitchen/living area really had the 'wow' factor when we went upstairs. Beds were comfortable. We were impressed by the attention to detail like the 2 kettles (needed for our large party) and the rechargeable torch in the hall for dark nights. We loved the long table for us all to eat and play games at. Everything necessary had been thought about and provided. A great place to stay

    It was fantastic. The properly is a great size and the kids loved the snug off the main living area, where we set up an Xbox for them. I was blown away by how well stocked it was, it had everything we needed in the kitchen, and bathrooms. The owners have thought of everything. I don't think there is a single improvement that I could suggest. Well done!

    The huge living/dining area was particularly useful for children to play and everyone to get around the dinner table together. The house was warm and comfortable during a very cold week. An excellent position in the countryside but close to Buxton and in easy reach of Bakewell, Castleton, Tideswell and all the places that make the Peak district so special. I'm happy to recommend Meadow view unreservedly.

    11 of us just spent the weekend here and had the best time. There’s a massive living room, dining table and little snug so plenty of room. Benches outside meant we could sit out in the sun. Beds were so so comfy! Everything was immaculate! Only thing I’d say is bring your own washing up stuff and potentially a couple of non stick frying pans and loo roll but other than that we didn’t have a single issue! If anyone’s fussy about noise the living space is upstairs so this potentially isn’t for you if you go to bed early but we managed fine and intend to come back!

  • "The house is located in a beautiful quiet location and is idea for those wanting a relaxing break away from buzzing city life."

    There is a Morrison’s nearby and several restaurants, including Thai, Indian and fish and chips, so you can eat in or take away that you can drive to within ten minutes. The property itself spacious and there is ample living space on the second floor for up to 12 people. The snug is a lovely add on and the large dining table is lovely and ideal for eating in together (a little difficult to get on and out of the very long bench seats though but you get used to climbing out). There are 2 TVs in the living rooms but they are not smart TVs so you have to bring along your PlayStation to access Netflix if you want to have a movie night. The kitchen is well equipped and contains all the utensils, dishes, cups, glasses and cutlery you could need and is fully equipped with 2 kettles, a fridge freezer, dishwasher and 2 cookers. The bedrooms are of an average size and three contain en-suite bathrooms. Be mindful, the plumbing is a little loud. The bathrooms look like they have been partially updated over the years but could do with new Lino on the floors. Enough pillows and towels are provided for guests, the linen is clean and there is a laundry room with a washer dryer, iron and ironing board. Handwash and toilet rolls are provided but the host may need to provide an extra roll in each bathroom as we ran out by the end of the stay. Unfortunately the beds let down the stay; they could do with upgrading. The mattresses in the rooms are uncomfortable, far too springy, soft and the frames are not very sturdy, this led to a few sleepless nights and could be a game changer when thinking of booking again. Cleanliness is good overall, the vacuum cleaner was full when we got there and could do with an empty pit between guests. The hosts were lovely and extremely helpful, I’m sure there is nothing they would not do to make our stay more comfortable.

About the location


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.
