Other Things to Note
We have taken great pride in trying to make everyone's stay a great one at Number 5 and know from our reviews and increasing return visits that we are achieving this. We would like to thanks all our guests for being such lovely people and making Number 5 their home from home in Buxton.
We are likely to sell the place later this year so this may be the final summer of Number 5 as a holiday let!

The design is stylish and vintage and includes antique pieces which although not particularly valuable are precious to us and we trust you will respect this. We understand that accidents happen and all we ask is that you tell about any damage. Minor breakages will not affect your deposit.
The apartment is fantastic, really well appointed and had everything we needed to make our stay really enjoyable!
It was a really quick walk down the hill to town and we loved the amazing view out over the town to the hills nearby.
Sarah was very responsive and made sure we felt right at home!
We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone wanting to switch off from the world.
The only challenge we found was that because there was such poor 3G/4G reception in Buxton and no wifi at the apartment, we struggled to research the things we wanted to do whilst there outside of business hours (when we went to the Information Office).
All in all, a fantastic spot to stay, we will be staying again!
Thank you Sarah!
We had a fantastic stay at Sarah and Graham's flat. Communication beforehand was excellent, with Sarah making sure that we had all the information we needed. Nearer to the time of our stay she checked in again and was also checked that everything was oK during our stay. All the arrangements worked very well and I felt that nothing was too much trouble. Sarah made us feel very much at home and that we could relax and enjoy ourselves. It was like staying with a friend, who unfortunately we didn't get to meet. The flat itself is warm and cosy and furnished to a very high standard but not in a fussy way and we felt very much at home, helped by a welcome package of essentials plus a bottle of wine and some beers in the fridge. The flat is very clean and has lots of lovely touches- hand creams, shower gels etc that makes the experience all the more enjoyable. The kitchen is very well equipped, warm and bright as this is at the top of the house,there are lovely views over to the peaks. The beds a super comfy, showers blissful and it is very quiet day and night. A lovely place to retreat back to at the end of a busy day. There is a lot of info about what to do locally including places to eat. All in all we couldn't have asked for more and had a wonderful stay. Highly recommended both for the property and owners who went out of their way to make sure that everything was OK for us.
We had a lovely time at Sarah's apartment. Sarah was great at sending information in advance and gave lots of personal recommendations, which was great as it was our first time in Buxton.
The apartment was beautifully furnished and decorated, and very clean. It was easy to find and a great base to explore the Peak District from.
We would definitely recommend it and we are looking forward to going back.
We had a great long weekend in Sarah's flat in Buxton.
It's in a really handy location just a short walk into town. The flat itself it's fantastic. It's beautifully decorated and furnished, with real attention to detail. It feels really homely - you can tell a lot of effort has been put in to get it just right. It was also spotlessly clean.
Sarah made a real effort to make us feel welcomed with lots of fancy toiletries and soaps, teas and coffees and even things like milk, beer and wine in the fridge.
The flat is really comfortable - nice and warm, particularly if you get the fire going! The beds are really comfy and both bedrooms are a good size. The bathrooms are really nice with very powerful showers.
We would definitely stay again and will recommend to anyone interested in staying in the area. Thank you!
Had a lovely few days in Buxton, Sarah's flat is stunning and in the perfect location for exploring the peak district.. Would highly recommend!
The most exquisite apartment in the middle of Buxton - beautifully appointed, and Sarah had done everything possible to make our short stay a pleasant one.
Sarah's flat in Buxton is beautiful. She has given it all the little touches a hotel would give. Everything we needed was available and more! The kitchen was well equipped, the crockery was beautiful, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were lush. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyed stay. We may come back again and bring some other friends along. The town itself is lovely and welcoming and we used Sarah's local knowledge in finding nice places to eat. Thank you Sarah.
