“Lovely place to spend Christmas”
Reviewed 21 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We all had a lovely time staying at this house. It's full of character and is well located for the town and exploring Derbyshire. There is plenty of room for ten people and good amenities in the house. The only thing it needs is a bigger fridge freezer. There is also no garden but the lovely park was literally a 2 minute walk and it was no problem walking the dogs down there.

We all had a great time - space was big enough to spread out and get away from the kids noise!! well equipped and very clean.

“Perfect location - comfortable house - forget the mobile......”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Shared the Old Stables with a group of girlfriends for a long weekend stay. The location is perfect - close to everything Buxton has to offer and minutes from Sainsbury's Local - always handy. The house is well-equipped and comfortable and I agree that photos do no do it justice - it's a bit like a Tardis! Yup - mobile reception is not great - but how about kicking back and forgetting the flippin' thing for a few days?

“Great little bolt hole.”
Reviewed 31 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Just returned from The Old Stables in Buxton. It is well placed near the town center and there is lots to do for children 4 to 13 and a dog. There is a great park with an indoor swimming pool, kids play areas adult outdoor gym just down the road, plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance and a Morrisons, Lidle, Tesco, supermarkets 5 minute drive away. The place was very warm and cozy when we arrived. The back street we had to drive down was very tight and meant reversing down to the house as there was nowhere to turn, but that was not a problem if you know how to reverse and use your mirrors.
Lots of attraction within a 30 minute drive. We would go again.

Liked best: The homely atmoshpere.
Liked least: The dining layout. Could have been better arranged without one of the horse stalls making a 10 place setting rather than a 4 in one stall and 6 in the other.
