  • "We read the reviews so was aware that there was no sink in the bathroom beforehand although it is a bit strange and I'm sure a small cloakroom sink could be fitted in there."

    It was too hot though. We switched the heating off but every time we went out and came back in it was back on and it was really hot weather and not many windows to open. The bathroom radiator never went off so it was very hot in there. The facilities in the kitchen were more than adequate but we only used it to make hot drinks. The cutlery drawer had crumbs in and some of cutlery was not very clean. Although we could take our dog we couldn't let her walk around in the outside garden area as there was a line we weren't allowed to cross so maybe not too dog friendly. It does have everything you need though and is in a good location for town with parking.

  • "Lovely holiday in Compton Lodge."

    Very pleasant studio style apartment, ideal for one or two people. I was with my dog and felt very safe on my own. Only thing that needs attention is the door lock as it sometimes needs a heavy hand to turn the lock. Otherwise all was very good.

  • "Enjoyed our stay but it is a little bit quirky."

    Kitchen area is excellent - modern, well planned, comprehensive. Elsewhere the use of thick swan timber for ceiling and sills a bit overdone. Bed is comfortable. Bathroom is strange - no hand basin and the bath is actually only for a shower? Boiler packed up on our last evening. 3 stars would be unkind, 4 is a bit generous. Would give 3 and half if possible.

  • "We had a great stay at Compton Lodge."

    There are a few issues like, no basin in the bathroom and the bed is a little high, making it difficult to get out of. None of this changed the overall enjoyment of our stay.

  • "We had a disappointing stay."

    The lack of wash basin in the bathroom was surmountable but it did seem strange washing in the kitchen sink! The bed was comfortable enough but too high for us and with one side against a wall it was difficult for us (reasonably active 75 year olds) to get in and out. The wind rattled the adjacent up and over garage door ensuring disturbed nights. The accommodation was warm when we arrived but the boiler broke down and needed replacing. We were offered a refund if we wanted to curtail our holiday, which we did, but nothing has been received yet after nearly a month. I've left completing this review for 3 weeks hoping I could be more positive but I can't as I have heard no more from the owner. On the plus side the on site manager was helpful and provided additional electric heating.

  • "Very poor, not enough light, no washbasin in bathroom, bed very poor (too soft, more like a lilo that is used on the beach, no space for dog even tho advertised as pet friendly, every too high couldn’t reach the microwave, no light in bed space, had more facilities when we used a caravan."

    This ‘lodge’ should be checked before it is advertised again. We only stayed one night, therefore expect to receive a refund & an apology - see also my letter dated 9.6.2023

    Hi Eugene. there is everything you could possible need in the lodge regarding facilities maybe because you only stayed Ione night you didnt find them all. im 5.9 and everything is perfect height for me - how big is your dog as the space is over 350 square feet. Maybe the mattress is a bit soft I will look into it and get a new one if needed I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. 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.
