About Priory Lea

Priory Lea must be one of the most perfectly situated houses in Buxton! It’s the last house on a quiet no-through road, surrounded by fields and countryside, yet it’s only a pleasant, 1 mile walk into the centre of this elegant town, renowned for its independent shops, galleries and historic Opera House.

Each spacious apartment at Priory Lea has beautiful countryside views and contains everything you might need for a perfect self-catering holiday. Outside there’s ample private parking for guests, a lovely patio area and two lawns in a well-established garden.

Priory Lea is pet-friendly too, and with all the wonderful walks that start right from the front door, we think your four-legged friends will love your holiday here as much as you will!
