About Vernon Francis

I am a retired Senior Police Officer having completed 30 years Public Service.

Vernon Francis purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Vernon Francis chose High Peak District

We stayed in the area for a few days and travelled to a number of areas. We immediately fell in love with Buxton as it offered the best combination of rural and cosmopolitan living.

What makes this apartment unique

Easy access to fine restaurants, theatre, arts and walking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr and Mrs Hoyland.

"The place is lovely. Home from home and a great place to unwind. It's easy to walk into Buxton and on the doorstep of so many interesting places to visit. I would definitely recommend to anyone"

The Jessop family.

"This is the best accommodation we have stayed in for a long time. Excellent"

Mr and Mrs Mercer.

" I am notoriously hard to please when it comes to accommodation but this apartment not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. It was spotlessly clean (a priority for me) and beautifully furnished. It had everything we needed and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would return again and again.

immaculate artistic apartment with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't believe how great value for money this apartment was. The place is very well taken care of and cozy. Everything was perfect. We had 3 days of sunshine and since the flat is facing west, the afternoon time in front of the big window looking at the peak district stunning views with a cup of tea was unwinding.
