“All you could want for a weekend in the Peak District”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed over easter weekend. Myself My partner, my best friend, her husband and their 6 and 8 year olds.
We arrived mid afternoon on Good Friday after having spent the morning in Bakewell. There is one parking space on the drive and room for another car either on the road in front or to the side of the property.
Upon entering you are greeted by a large entrance hall with a bench to take off your shoes and lots of hanging space for coats. There was enough space to leave bikes if you had wanted to. The living accomodation is on the first floor and consists of a large kitchen with a table that seats 6 easily. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need. Including tea,coffee ketchup salt pepper etc.
It was lovely to also find 2 large gold Lindt Bunnies waiting for us! There was also a fresh pint of milk in the fridge, ample toilet rolls and kitchen roll and all the things you might need really.
The lounge has a TV DVD player lots of maps and guide books for the local area and various games and things for the kids.
There are 3 bedrooms one double with an en-suite with shower and a twin and double that share the master bathroom with a lovely stand alone bath.
The entire apartment is very well furnished and you can tell the owners have spent lots of money keeping it just so.

As far as days out go, you are within walking distance of both upper and lower Buxton. At the bottom of the road are the pavilion gardens which are beautiful and have 2 playgrounds for younger and older kids. There is a lake and a coffee shop nearby. Also within walking distance is pooles cavern which is a great way to while away a rainy hour if ther weather isn't so great.
Be sure to take your empty bottles and fill them from the fountain in the centre of Buxton. Buxton mineral water flows 24/7 still warm out of the ground completely free! The kids loved it.
On our last day we walked the Monsal trail which is a disused railway and great for cycling or walking for all the family. We parked for free by the river just before the viaduct and walked up the hill to join the trail. Highly recommended.
My friend and her family live in the north-east and we live in Southampton, we frequently meet in the midlands, this is our new favourite place and we shall definitely be staying again.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

even better than expected. I have high expectations and sometimes descriptions don't always match reality, however, Temple News proved an exception. Lovely decor, large rooms, well equipped kitchen and convenient location. Hope to use in the future.

“Perfect! Just Perfect!”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Superbly located within walking distance of everything Buxton has to offer. The apartment is simply stunning, wonderful attention to detail and a real home from home feel. We couldn't have wished for better. Very very highly recommended by us!

Spacious , and elegantly refurbished property on two floors in central location . Very well appointed , quiet and comfortable accommodation within easy walking distance of all main attractions . Immediate locality contains a good range of restaurants , pubs , shopping etc.
Buxton proved to be an architectural and cultural delight , all set within dramatic countryside and abundant exploration opportunities . Dedicated parking provides the icing on the cake .
