Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Fabulous property in a central location. Ideal for access to Buxton and all its opportunities. Plenty of very nice eating places within walking distance. The property is beautiful and expect to spend a lot of time there as you find it very difficult to leave the pool especially if you have children!!! Hence if it rains most of the time its doesn’t really matter. Expensive but well worth a special occasion. Aug 2012.
  2. We wanted to rent a property for my husbands 60th birthday, which would be large enough for our whole family. Moorecroft more than met our requirements and we had a fantastic weekend of celebration. As the weather was not too good, the pool was a saviour! Everyone went swimming at least twice a day. The location was excellent too - only 5 minutes walk into the centre of Buxton. April 2012.
  3. Simply the best property we could have asked for! Having living space on the both floors is really useful, the pool was amazing, so warm and it being right inside the house is so handy (no cold walk outside here)! The cinema system is briliant, as is the pool table, kitchen has everyhting you coulkd need. There are not enough superlatives to describe this place! March 2012.
  4. A brilliant house, very comfortable and the facilities were excellent. Feb 2012.
  5. The accommodation was spacious and stunning and easily accommodated the 10 guests. The indoor pool was amazing access to surrounding area was easy. Jan 2012.
  6. Having its own swimming pool & games room is ideal for all ages - enjoy. Oct 2011.
  7. This is a great property! The location means its a short walk down the hill to Buxton Town. Indoor pool fantastic even for small children as there is a small shallow section. The cinema screen is great. This property is a wonderful place for family gatherings and exploring the Peak District. Master en suite even has a jacuzzi bath. We would recommend anyone to stay at Moorcroft, you will love it - just like we did! Aug 2011.
  8. This is a luxury property in every sense and was exactly what we hoped for. Spacious with great facilities for families. The cinema room and games room were well used but the pool was the jewel in the crown, bigger than expected and just right from my 6 year old daughter to my 75 year old mum. Good location (although a bit of a hill to walk back from Buxton centre). July 2011.
  9. The property exceeded our expectations, we all enjoyed the pool and cinema tv. It’s the ideal property to have a relaxing break. Feb 2011.
  10. It was lovely, lots of living space, and a real ’party’ house. Bigger than it appeared from the photos and much better. The pool was fabulous, much bigger than we had anticipated. Beautiful house, in a lovely position. Dec 2010.
  11. The best property we have stayed in. Lovely welcome on arrival. Spotless everywhere. Beds very comfortable. Cinema area was fantastic. Swimming pool amazing, always at a perfect temperature. Everything we needed in the kitchen. Would recommend this house to anyone who wants a fun filled, chilled out, relaxing holiday. Nov 2010.
  12. Pool excellent. Garden looked great just a pity there was a monsoon when we were there. Games room and Sky package were all used extensively. Kitchen superb. May 2010.
  13. The swimming pool mainly, but overall it was an excellent place to stay. A great kitchen with everything we needed. Big tv with sky. A lovely house. Oct 2010.
  14. Swimming pool, home cinema, games room, kitchen and laundry facilities. Sept 2010.
  15. All up to the standard expected. July 2010.
  16. A roomy but homely place for a large group or family to have space but be with everyone. April 2010.
  17. Indoor swimming pool, Good overall standard of fixtures and fitting. April 2010.
  18. The property had a number of communal areas and was well maintained. The facilities, decor and furnishings were top notch and the best room in the house has to be the pool/sauna room. The open plan design worked well and the whole house itself felt very inviting, our party of 10 settled in in seconds. Jan 2010.
  19. The pool was fantastic! Dec 2009.
  20. This house is absolutely amazing, the pictures just do not do it justice, it total exceeded all of our expectations!! We had 10 adults there for a 30th birthday and it was fabulous. We will definitely be going back and have recommended it to many friends already! Nov 2009.
