The property is decorated and furnished to a high standard with many quirky features. Cavendish Golf Club is 5 minutes’ walk from the house, and a walk from the front door into the hills or a stroll into the heart of Buxton takes less than 10 minutes. Buxton has much to offer including its spectacular Pavilion Gardens, the amazing Devonshire Dome with its Victorian spa, the opera house, as well as unique shops and restaurants to cater for all tastes. 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. Comedians such as Alan Carr, Shaun Lock and John Richardson have all made appearances, as well as music from Russell Watson, The Buzzcocks, Bellowhead and Heaven 17. Tribute bands to Pink Floyd, Abba and Queen have also featured, as well as many plays, operas and children’s 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. The adventure park of Alton Towers is worth a visit, or enjoy visiting caverns, cycling along trails, golf at Buxton or stride out on one of the numerous walks.

    Sometimes places don't live up to expectations but this was not the case with Moorecroft. The swimming pool was perfect and we all enjoyed using it. The cinema room was great for family entertainment when the weather was bad and the games room also came in handy. The property is spacious and comfortable and well equipped. We would have no hesitation in returning.

    We had an enjoyable week in Moorecroft and the swimming pool was a great hit with both children and adults. Moorecroft is within walking distance of the centre of Buxton, where there are a number of restaurants and Supermarkets. We particularly enjoyed the the Buxton Brewery Tap Room!

    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.
