    Wow!! What a stunning house. We went as a group of 12 for a 40th birthday. All beds were comfy, great kitchen and amenities. Enough of everything for everyone. And brilliant tv package. Would definitely return.

    The house is beautiful and well equipped to entertain a large group. The only comments we would make are in respect of the internet, which didnt work and wasn't fixed until half way through our break; this did impact our stay as we struggled with the kids who couldn't watch their ipads, it also meant I was unable to work as planned and meant we couldn't watch the movies we wanted during the evenings. We had great use of the games room, although the dart board/darts has a lot of wear and could do with updating but having a house with a pool was amazing and we enjoyed using it every day; it was beautifully warm and a great size. I have to admit we thought the games/cinema/tv areas were all separate rooms from the photos on the website but in fact they are just areas within the same living space which have been sectioned off. Having the kids games area in the living space area is nice, but the cinema room in an open space beside the tv room meant it was tough to hear them when they were both on. The sky box can only be viewed on one screen at a time, so you cant watch different sky channels plus the sky box is over on the cinema side, so you had to be over that side to control it. The negative comments are only due to expectations as the house appears quite premium and is expensive. But the facilities are lovely, and it's close to the town. It's well equipped with towels and pillows and little extras like colouring pencils for the kids. Lots of fridge and kitchen cupboard space. Also, they responded quickly to our complaints regarding the internet, the delay getting it sorted was due to the IT companies technical teams delay due to opening days and troubleshooting time.

    Excellent location, just a walk into the town centre. swimming pool and pool room are lovely and warm and all areas are spacious with lots of storage and refrigeration. The housekeeping staff are nice and friendly and the gardens are large enough. If I was being picky I'd prefer a door into the master en-suite rather than open plan and vehicle entrance in and out can be difficult with cars parked on the main road but overall we had a lovely time.

    A fantastic house more spacious than the images show. The location being 6 mins walk to the lovely town of buxton is great. The Clubhouse pub is great for good value tasty meals just down the hill. We spent a lot of time in the lovely heated pool which is also bigger than we thought. We watched all our TV in the cinema room which was brilliant. Only improvements could be a hanging rail in one of the bedrooms that is missing a wardrobe and new mattresses or toppers in the twin beds in the space room. Kids loved the 2 PS4's. Any small problems were dealt with promptly. Four bathrooms meant plenty of space for our family of 9 and the games room a fantastic added bonus!!! Would definitely stay again...and hope to.

    Lovely house with the highlight being the swimming pool - enjoyed regularly by all 3 generations, especially in the wet weather. Smallish garden but ok for our needs. Parking is on a slope which was tricky at times. House needs some minor repairs and refurbishment to bring it up to scratch. However we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

    We visited in July 2019. A group of 11. Overall we had a great time, but it was more the company than the cottage itself. Thought it was not value for money. Whilst the cottage had a swimming pool and games room the standard was not as expected. It was dark and dingy and they owners have clearly tried to incorporate too much in a small space. Games Room - was in a very cold and dusty garage. Swimming pool - nice but quite small and disappointing. Kids Room and Bedroom on Ground floor- very very small and claustrophobic. Hardly any rooms to move or store stuff. Not to mention dark!! Kitchen, Diner, TV area and Cinema room all on the ground floor squeezed in a very small area. A large group of us on a family holiday could not sit together as a group for a meal! Cinema Room is basically a projector stuck in front of the patio door, which is fixed, meaning it blocked all the day light. Also access to the third bathroom was via the cinema room. Upstairs Master Bedroom is the most bizarre and random thing we have seen. You had a jacuzzi in a corner, a long passage with a toilet around fixed wardrobes. The other double bedroom seemed ok. The third bedroom was mostly under a slope, which meant that we struggled to reach our suitcases, which we had to use for storage as the wardrobe they provided was pathetic which made more noise than store items. The kitchen roasting trays were disgusting and greasy. Overall the owners have tried to squeeze in rooms and entertainment space to generate more income. They really need to reduce the number of guests and make the area open plan.

    We spent a lovely 70th Birthday family weekend at Moorecroft. 6 adults and 4 children 16-8. Just what we wanted. The swimming pool was the icing on the cake. We would book again for a special weekend.

    excellent location, found everything we were looking for in the area quite easily. Moorecroft itself is a comfortable house with the facilities like the swimming pool and games room very popular with all generations. The property itself does require some work both inside and out. Would come again.

    Lovely, spacious property, very open plan and of course the pool was excellent. Couple of issues, eg the main kitchen tap very stiff, dodgy chair, both oven and TV system somewhat complicated (maybe a freeview option on the downstairs tv) and couldn't find scissors anywhere. Could perhaps do with blackout blinds in upstairs twin. There's an extra shower/toilet behind the cinema room that came in useful and the game's room was a lot of fun. Cleaner friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

    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!
