'Audreys' is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. It is spacious, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean.

After a warm welcome and a 'guided tour' we were left to discover the delights of the bungalow. A vase of lovely flowers and some basic food items, including freshly laid eggs from Lorraine and Johns' happy hens, made a good start to a very enjoyable stay in Buxton.

We have stayed in many self catering accomodation around the UK but this was by far the best. We couldn't fault the building, equipment or the positioning and the attention to detail was magnificient. The welcome pack was brilliant and not something that we have had before. Absolutely wonderful and we are already recommending this our friends and family.

This must be the :Gold Medal: of self-catering cottages, it is spotless, it has every thing you need and more, a welcome pack to get you going tea, coffee, sugar, milk, jam, spread, bread, cheese, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine and a lovely bunch of flowers. the only downside for me was that there was NO nice walks from the cottage, get in the car and there was plenty of choice. A great holiday and we will be going back [Added at Editor's discretion since it appears to be a helpful review and the reviewer has been authenticated]

Audreys is the best self catering accommodation we have stayed in. Everything you could wish for is there, it is so very clean and well equipped.

We were one of the first guests when it opened in 2009 and it still looks like new in June 2010. The main draw for us was the two bedrooms with an en-suire bathroom each. Fantastic - there aren't many of these properties around.

Make up of party:  Both times we have travelled with different friends and both couples were very impressed with the accommodation and the warm welcome received.

An excellent cottage which was even better than we had expected. It was immaculate and lacked nothing that we needed for a most enjoyable weekend visiting Chatsworth and Hardwick Halls decorated for Christmas. The location was ideal for us and the cottage is very easy to find. Lorraine has thought of everything, even a Christmas tree! It is by far the best cottage we have stayed in on our pre-Christmas weekend away. [Reviewer not authenticated but review appears helpful - Ed]

We stayed at Audreys over New Year and had a wonderful time.

The two bedrooms with large en suite bathrooms are almost identical which means that two couples get equal rooms, something that is most unusual. Normally when we go away with friends, we toss a coin and whoever wins gets the king sized bed with en suite and the losers get the twin beds!

We all enjoy cooking and we found that the kitchen had more utensils than most homes. The fridge was stocked with essentials on arrival.

There is a large TV in the lounge and wi-fi is provided. The bungalow even has a heated garage to dry off your walking gear.

Lorraine has thought of everything and no expense has been spared in making this a real home from home. We all said we would like to live there!

We now consider ourselves regulars at Barms Farm as we have stayed at the B & B a few times and have watched Audreys being transformed from an ordinary bungalow into a 5 star holiday cottage.

We found Audreys by searching the web and soon discovered that the reality is even better than the web shows!! The cottage was immaculate and Lorraine has thought of everything needed for a wonderful stay plus the little extras - like flowers in the kitchen, fruit bowl and even a little bowl of sweets in the lounge - made it all the more special for us. The quality of furnishings made us feel as if we were being treated like royalty and Lorraine, who lives just across the way, was the perfect hostess - available when needed and yet not intrusive. We stayed there with my husband's parents who remarked that in all their 58 yrs of married life it was the best place they had ever stayed in! We would definately stay there again. Thank you Lorraine!!

Audrey's fully deserves its 5* rating. It has been very well appointed and equipped. Its been done so well that it could have been featured on a property development TV programme.

I've already recommended it to several friends who appreciate high quality accommodation.

Located just outside Buxton its in beautiful countryside and has easy access to all the local facilities. We walked widely in the area and when we needed to were able to wash and dry any wet or muddy clothing over night ready for the next day.

The kitchen dinning room is very spacious with a large range of equipment making self-catering on the nights we chose to very easy.

It made a big difference to have both a free standing shower and a large bath in each bathroom.

Clean spacious and modern with private space to relax in it was a much more convenient option that an hotel.

As both bedrooms have the same high standard of facilities and bathrooms it’s a great option for two couples holidaying together as no one has to accept "the short straw" on room choice.

The process of searching websites to look for accommodation is tedious. This is a real find you need look no further.

Audreys is beautifully situated within lovely gardens fronted by an old stone wall, and has open views to the front over a golf course and beyond. It is within easy reach of the famous spa town of Buxton and is a perfect base for exploring the Peak District, either by car or on foot.

The bungalow is exceptional and fits the brochure description exactly. It is spacious and luxurious and much thought has gone into making a stay at Audreys really special.

We have, in the past, booked self-catering cottages both in this country and Europe, and travelling to them always filled us with some sense of unease. This was not so when we discovered Audreys at Barms Farm! For some inexplicable reason we travelled to the Peak District somehow knowing that we were going to be extremely happy at Audreys; that feeling was not wrong! Without doubt, Audreys definitely deserves its 5 stars.
