  • "A lovely house with a great homely feel, very clean and beautifully decorated."

    The owners were very helpful when we contacted them with a minor problem which they dealt with immediately and fixed. We liked the welcome pack and found the facilities and everything well stocked. We would definitely recommend to a friend. Perfect for our family of 5 and dog, lots of space and very comfortable.

  • "It’s a lovely house in a good location."

    We couldn’t work the heating out at first but the owner provided instructions and then we were warm and comfortable throughout. It’s perfect for a family and we could walk everywhere.

  • "Overall a very nice property to stay in, it was comfortable and warm and reasonably well equipped A few things would have made our stay better 1."

    Curtains in the front bedroom need a blackout blind or equivalent to block out day light or street light 2. Freezer space would be advantageous - we hadn't realised and our shop resulted in some food being thrown out. I see others have commented on Car parking outside the house but this was not a problem - clearly the Vets close by attracts a lot of short term visitors which may make it more difficult

  • "Church view is a delightful, characterful property which manages to combine generous proportions whilst still maintaining a homely feeling."

    We loved the open fire and the much appreciated complimentary basket of kindling/logs. The thoughtful welcome basket of edible goodies was also appreciated. Church View was ideally situated for all the shops restaurants and parks in the area - all of which were in walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely revisit if in the area.

  • "We had a really lovely 3 day break, enjoying the area around Buxton."

    Easy to visit places like Edale and Castleton from the lovely house we stayed in. They have an open fire in the sitting-room and there was a ‘starter’ pack of coke to make a fire. This was much appreciated as it turned out quite cool in the evenings. However, if you want more you have to pick up more supplies locally from Tesco Metro or logs from B&Q. Our only bug bear was the parking. We went before the bank holiday weekend and the only place to park was on the road. But finding a place in front of the house was impossible. We had to park at the end of the road and carry all our luggage up the road to the house. But all in all, even with the parking we had a lovely time and the host Jeremy was very helpful without being intrusive.

  • "Fantastic house to stay in located close to town."

    Very cosy with lovely original features. Very clean and kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils you’d possibly need. Outdoor patio captures all the evening sun which was a lovely setting to enjoy a glass of Prosecco on arrival! Will definitely return.

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.
