Guests may like to arrange a visit to coincide with a show at the Buxton Opera House which is a fantastic venue for all sorts of shows.

There is an abundance of places to visit from stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, together with many great villages to visit.

    What an amazing house. Thanks so much for allowing us to rent it to celebrate my 50th birthday. Hopefully we will be back next year!

    We had an amazing time, the pool made it but we were unable to regulate the temperature of the water.

    The things I would have wanted to know about Moorecroft before going : Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, 1 has an ensuite with no shower, 1 is next door to a bathroom and the 3rd is across the hall past the lounge so is a walk to the bathroom – we had four people staying in all 3 bedrooms and all 4 of us shared the 1 bathroom. All bedrooms are in the eaves, with a 6ft2” husband this really didn’t work well. Downstairs is very open plan – too open plan to allow for effective use of all the space with a large group who at times want some separation. The 2 kids rooms and 1 bathroom are behind the pool and through the dining room, for us with teenagers this was a problem as with no clear separation from kitchen to bedrooms we were having to be very quiet each morning and only use the upstairs lounge meaning up and down for refreshments to the kitchen. The cinema room is open plan to the downstairs lounge and you can only use either the cinema TV or the lounge TV – we had hoped for 3 distinctive TV areas but there are only 2. There is another bathroom behind the cinema room, we didn’t use this at all as it was in such a difficult place. Overall, it’s a very confused layout that would only work for a very specific group of people. We were 6 in total, I cannot imaging fitting 12 into the cottage. The garden was very small. Parking for 3 cars doesn’t really exist, the driveway is on the steepest of slopes, we didn’t even attempt to bring a car down to the bottom so parked 1 of our 2 cars on the road. Worst of all for the children was WiFi awful. On the positives the cottage is clean and in the most part well equipped, the pool was great. It’s in a great location – we were there over half term so very expensive and overall we wouldn’t spend that amount of money on staying again.

    Great holiday. Big and little kids thoroughly enjoyed it. Only suggestion we would say is soap is needed in each bathroom.

    The holiday was fantastic and we had a great time. The best parts were the swimming pool and games room. The only reason I gave it the overall rating a 9 and not a ten was because we found the cinema room impractical. We were a party of 12 so had people of all ages. Not everybody wanted to watch the same thing which was an issue with having to watch the same programme in the cinema room and lounge. You could watch a separate dvd in the cinema room but we had to constantly turn the volume up and down with the surround sound as it could be quite loud. It would have benefited from being a seperate room closed off. But other than that it was great and we have already recommended it to family and friends

    Our family of 5 plus our 2 small dogs enjoyed our week at Moorecroft. The main attraction is having your own private pool. It was also a novelty coming in through the front door and being on the 1st floor and going downstairs to ground floor. The only negative thing I have to say is that in my opinion the house has very little kerb appeal, for how much it costs I didn't expect to see so many weeds on the drive and growing out of the guttering, looked a little scruffy. However, this obviously didn't effect us in any way, just an observation. Inside the house is lovely and Oliver the caretaker is brilliant, any problems he sorts immediately. The pool is gorgeous and was used so much, however if you use the bedroom by the PS4's the noise from the pool filters may bother you all night.
