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!

We understand that accidents happen and all we ask is that you tell about any damage. Minor breakages will not affect your deposit.
About the Host, Sarah
We are a couple from England with 4 grown up children. We love to travel and meet new people and have a particular passion for skiing in the winter months. We have a beautiful and unique 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in the historic, spa town of Buxton which is a gorgeous and a great base to explore the Peak District of Derbyshire. We have thoroughly enjoyed letting it on Airbnb since 2012.
