We were all extremely impressed with the The Poppies, everything about it was exceptional. The instructions were clear and concise, in the book with info about the property. We all felt very welcome and at home at The Poppies, it is without doubt the best cottage we have rented.

We had a fabulous break in The Poppies. It is finished to a very high spec and extremely well equipped. It's also perfectly located for getting around in Buxton or venturing further afield. We were in a family group that included 3 generations and all agreed that we would recommend wholeheartedly to family and friends.

The Poppies is a lovely property, extremely comfortable and of a high standard. The rooms were clean and well furnished; a real home from home. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. The location was excellent, within walking distance of Buxton with many good restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay here again. With the standard of accommodation I would say it is like staying in someone's own home. Excellent.

We've just returned from a weeks holiday in Buxton and this cottage was definitely one of the highlights. The location is fantastic! A stones throw from the town centre with restaurants and bars all of which were family friendly. We were travelling with our young daughter and the close distance to the Pavilion Gardens was ideal! There was nothing the owner of the cottage hadn't thought of. We had beautiful fresh flowers on arrival and every time I went to look in a cupboard for something I needed it was there! The cottage was so perfect we didn't want to leave! We'll definitely be returning in the future.

Set in a lovely quiet part of town "The Poppies" is very comfortable and beautifully furnished with "Top Quality" fittings! It is centrally located just a five minute walk to the famous Buxton Opera House and University of Derby campus plus all the shops and restaurants Buxton offers. We recently stayed at the "Poppies for two weeks whilst on holiday from Australia and would certainly recommend it ! So much so we will be returning again next year. Thank you Alison for making our stay a memorable one.

Lovely house with a very high standard of decoration, kitchen utensils, linen etc. In a fantastic location - a 5/10 minute walk to Buxton town centre, yet quiet and peaceful. Very highly recommended.
