  • "This was an amazing apartment, one of the best we've stayed in anywhere in the world."

    It's located centrally, in the middle of the historical part of Buxton. Beautifully appointed and very close to some great restaurants (recommend the Ithaca, Greek cuisine and very welcoming and friendly). The owners, Max and Mike, are lovely people - very helpful and friendly. If you're intending to stay in Buxton you couldn't do better.

  • "An excellent apartment with top class fittings, clean, well equipped and comfortable, with friendly and helpful hosts as a bonus."

    The only downside was traffic noise - secondary glazing, especially in the bedrooms would be a major asset.

The property

Suited for a family of four or two couples, Apartment 2 rests moments away from the edge of the Peak District National Park.

As you enter the apartment building, which was a former post office, you will come across a range of books, games and DVDs in the communal entrance; be sure to take a few of these up to the apartment for some entertainment!

Apartment 2 - The Old Post Office certainly holds the wow factor, and you'll notice this as you enter the open-plan living space, where a contemporary kitchen boasts sleek units and several appliances that any foodie would be pleased with.

When dinner has been rustled up, enjoy it at the breakfast bar or as a sit-down meal with your loved ones, why not open a bottle of wine to accompany your meal, you're on holiday after all!

Once you've tucked into a nourishing meal, settle down in front of the Smart TV and watch your favourite show.

As day turns to night, choose one of two fabulous king-sizes to rest in, with one boasting an en-suite bathroom featuring a separate bath and walk-in shower, and the other offering an en-suite shower room; both bedrooms contain TVs, for extra evening entertainment.

Finishing off the apartment's interior is a handy cloakroom, ideal for preventing those morning queues for the en-suites.

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.
