  • "Church View is a rather grand looking apartment in an ideal location for exploring Buxton."

    However, for us, a number of things really let it down. The kitchen was poorly equipped with only 2 saucepans, only one of which had a lid. The dishwasher door only partly opened, making it very difficult to load and unload. This had been mentioned by previous guests.There were leftover chips in the oven, and we had to fix the kettle before using it. The plastic liner from inside the lid plus the small screw, which holds it in place were in the bottom of it. There was 1 tea towel which also had to serve as an oven glove as there wasn't one which isn't ideal.The fridge although clean had a strong perfumy smell so we had to clean it again to try and iradicate the smell as it was tainting our food. As there isn't wardrobe we really think some hooks and a few coat hangers would be a good idea.The towels were good quality, but although there were 2 bath towels there was only 1 hand towel between the two of us. There were quite a few cobwebs some of which had obviously been there for some time, especially on the bedroom windows. We received a welcome pack of wine, milk, cakes, plus a few teabags and sachets of coffee, which was a nice touch.

  • "Fantastic location and very attractive property."

    Was pretty cold when we went in, and I was slightly allergic to something in the bedding. That improved with airing the bedroom well. Would have liked a third saucepan, especially one with a lid. Otherwise, was well equipped and very comfortable. Close to everything in Buxton. Easy access to great walking and cycling.

    Thank you for taking time to leave feedback and so glad you found the apartment attractive and the location fantastic! The temperature normally runs on a program which keeps the apartment at a comfortable temperature but guests are most welcome (within reason!) to set the temperature however they wish. Sorry to learn of your allergy, this is not something we have come across before but we do ensure the bedding is always very clean and also completely replace the whole set for new periodically.

  • "This is a very palatial apartment on the ground floor and was very comfortable and convenient, especially if you have a slight disability."

    It is very close to the town centre and the Pavilion is just a 2 minutes away out the back gate and across the church yard. We would definitely go there again. There was plenty of good quality glasses, crockery and cutlery for 2 people but there was only basic cooking equipment which is ok if you want to eat out all the time. A few more pots and baking trays for example would be useful. Plenty of hanging space for coats etc but no wardrobe. There was also limited cleaning equipment and no vacuum or long handled broom or mop. A rack in the shower would also help especially if you have difficulty bending down in a smallish cubicle. The towels however were probable the best we have ever had even in a 5 star hotel. But to be fair this is an amazing place and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Disappointingly there were a number of problems - but there was a quick response after a call to Sykes Cottages. The shower was extremely dirty and blocked but the “A Team” came out the same day we complained leaving it spotless and complementary wine and cake, and apologised profusely. The dishwasher had a broken door although usable and the freezer was frozen solid and although the cleaners tried to defrost it, left it broken and still rather unusable. I am sure these problems will be resolved by now.

  • "We stayed at the property for 5 nights 29 Sept - 4 Oct."

    The property is well located and only an 8 minute walk down to the Opera House and town. It is nicely furnished and comfortable. The dishwasher door only opened half way which made use difficult. This was reported on 30th September and we were told the owner was waiting for a gap between bookings to get it repaired or replaced. I'd suggest more lamps in the living room as its not cosy to sit under main ceiling light. I accidentally left clothing behind and reported this on 5th October, the day after we left. I contacted Sykes again on the 10th and was told the owner was waiting for an answer from the cleaning company. I contacted Sykes again on 23rd Oct and the next day was told the cleaners had not found anything. I am certain clothing was left in the bedside drawer. I'm disappointed that I had to chase this query over 2.5 weeks and to have received this answer.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and it’s great that you found the apartment well furnished and comfortable. The light in the living room is completely dimmable, so you may have it as bright as dim as you wish. There is also a side lamp to use instead or in addition. It is does feel a little unfair to leave negative feedback claiming to have left clothes in a drawer, we arranged for the cleaners to make a special trip to check for you but they confirmed there was nothing there.

  • "We couldn't have chosen a better property to stay in during our 4 nights in Buxton."

    For location as well as the property itself. A beautiful Georgian building in a peaceful residential area. The apartment is beautiful throughout. The attention to detail is 100% with regard to the sympathetic decor including colour schemes, the finish of the decoration and the finishing touches; paintings, wallpapers, chandeliers. Totally lovely. The bed was so comfortable. The kitchen had everything required (and more). Plenty of information provided about the property (down to the location of sockets!) and an abundance of local attraction information. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property. Little tip: Take a left out of the front door through the rear garden to the gate, which leads onto a short pathway which then takes you to the entrance of the Pavilion Gardens.

  • "Church View has a lovely location, very central in Buxton and a short stroll to the Dome, Opera House, Pavilion Gardens, etc."

    The property itself is exquisite, with sturdy furniture of very high quality. The decorations and furnishings are clearly thought through and appear to speak for the history of the place, we particularly loved the faux grille on the bedroom radiator. It was fun visiting attractions around town and coming back to see paintings of the same. There is evident effort put into upkeep and one could easily mistake it for a set from a film. The heating was efficient and convenient to control through a central panel. The owner was prompt and proactive in arranging a midstay cleaning service when requested. We had an absolutely splendid fortnight at this place and it is one of the more impressive cottages we have stayed in. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Buxton.

    Wonderful to read such positive comments about Church View, we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated how easy it is to walk to everything in Buxton! Great to see you appreciated the various prints and original paintings in the apartment, all by local artists and all of Buxton and the surrounding area! Property Owner

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback and we are so glad that you had a relaxing stay at Church View.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Churchview."

    The only problem was the boiler started leaking on the first day, a plumber came but couldn't fix it. this meant he had to come again and still couldn't fix. Then it broke completely so we had to leave early. Apart from this it is a lovely apartment and we will recommend to others.

    Thank you for taking time to leave feedback and we are glad that you had a lovely stay at Church View. We are so sorry about the problems with the boiler during your stay, it was completely unavoidable and we worked fast to try and resolve it but do realise it may have impacted on your stay. We have taken this issue so seriously that we have now closed for the next week in order to have a completely new boiler installed, which, along with all new radiators, provides a completely new heating system in Church View. We therefore hope to never have these issues again and very much hope you will come back and visit Church View before too long - you would be most welcome! Property Owner

  • "Firstly, please thank the owners for their kind welcome card and gifts - all very much appreciated."

    This is important because my wife and I love the Church View apartment - as we do Buxton itself. It all feels like home. The decor is exactly to our own taste - classical and stylish - hard to accomplish but beautifully executed. Absolutely exquisite and perfectly located being close to the Opera House and parks.(Note - we left a day early, on the Monday due to a medical appointment in Somerset.)

    Thank you for your feedback and we’re so pleased you loved Church View so much you chose to come back for a second time!. Thank you also for such kind words about the apartment and recognising the effort that has gone into the decor to make it what it is! We hope to be able to welcome you back again before too long!

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment gracious and well located with convenient car parking. We are sorry that on this occasion the cleaners arrived late for the change over and it is important to say this is not the usual high standard we strive for. The cleaners have assured us this was a genuine oversight and have since put systems in place to ensure they are not late again. We did learn that you locked yourself out during your stay but pleased that this was quickly resolved without too much issue for you. We hope to welcome you back to Church View again before too long.

  • "Thank you. This is an excellent, comfortable, well-provided, place to stay, conveniently located in central Buxton, with good restaurants nearby."

    I have one simple suggestion for the owners -; The apartment was warm enough. As it wasn't the warmest of weekends and we had two wet days, to give an illusion of added warmth please place a mural of a blazing open fire on the plainly painted old fireplace cover. That would have created the perfect backdrop to a wet day spent watching Her Majesty, the Queen's funeral on the more than adequate television. Thank you.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave such wonderful feedback about the Church View. It is so pleasing to hear that you found the location convenient and that the newly installed heating system kept you warm enough. Your suggestion around the mural of a fireplace has been noted although possibly not one we will promise to do in the short term. Glad to hear you made good use of the large TV. We hope to see you back Church View again before too long, you would be most welcome! Property Owner

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.
