An absolutely fabulous town house. Stayed for the weekend with. a group of friends, 12 of us. The communal spaces were perfect, a large kitchen- diner with long wooden table, living room and garden. All the bedrooms were large and had either en suites or a bathroom next door, so didn’t have to fight for the best rooms! Everything beautifully decorated and had everything we needed from kitchen equipment to towels and hot water. Everyone really happy with the accommodation and would definitely stay again. The house is walking distance to the centre of Buxton, parking for 3 cars on the driveway, but lots of free parking on the road opposite so no problem with cars. We contacted the host who was friendly, flexible and clearly wanted us to enjoy our weekend at the house 😊 which we did! Thank you

We stayed at Buxton Lodge for my husband's 40th birthday in October 2015. There were 10 adults and 7 children aged between 1 to 6 so quite a full house! However, the lodge was great, there was plenty of room for adults and children, very well equipped, clean, comfortable and with a large garden. The lodge was close to Buxton centre and there are 3 parking spaces in from of the property so very convenient. We have stayed at other Peak Venue properties before and Buxton Lodge was just as good. The communication with Peak Venues is also very good. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and the company.

I am writing to thank you so much for the easy pleasant booking for Buxton Lodge this weekend. We were on a little rocky start with not knowing which property to book but new that we wanted to book with you. From start to finish communication has been perfect and requested have been met. The property itself was just beautiful, very well decorated and styled. Perfect for our Hen weekend, classy, modern, yet practical and comfy. We had everything we could possibly need and everyone commented on how lovely it was we were all together in one big house. If I ever have to organise something similar I would defiantly book through Peak Venues again as I know your standard is very high and all the extra touches were brilliant. The beds were comfy, showers were always hot (and very powerful), rooms & linen were clean and the whole house was spotless. The main plus for us was our Hen was so happy with it all. Great job Peak Venues and Buxton Lodge owners you have a fabulous house that we will defiantly recommend to others. Many Thanks
We had a wonderful weekend thank you and we were all extremely impressed with the quality and standard of the accommodation, which did indeed exceed our expectations. I am certain that you will find the house as we found it i.e. clean and tidy and no damages! Thank you also for the recommendation of afternoon tea at No.6 The Square which we had on Saturday. We will definitely come back to Peak Venues for any future get-togethers and I know a couple of the girls are interested in looking at some of the larger properties for family meet-ups. Thanks again.
We all had a lovely weekend, Buxton lodge was a fabulous venue.
