This is a beautiful family run B&B and I can’t recommend it highly enough! Everything was just amazing!! I wish we hadn’t just been passing through and could stay a couple more nights. Our room was beautifully clean and so so comfortable! Everything is so fresh and bright. The food was amazing and all vegetarian or vegan! They even washed my horribly grimy windscreen! Thank for a fantastic stay!!

The perfect stay
What a wonderful place to stay. Very friendly and accommodating owners. The most comfortable bed ever. Very clean and comfy room. More food at breakfast than an army could eat. Will definitely book again if staying in the area

Period Victorian veggy stay
We had an excellent stay, hosts could not do enough for us. Period Victorian property with all Victorian decor and furnishings. The flat screen TV though is a bit out of place but welcomed. The hotel only offers Vegetarian Breakfast which I think has missed from the web page listing... No problem for us the breakfast was colossal, even had a doggy bag of pastries from the "bird cage" - fantastic stay

A great find.
We had a wonderful stay, only a few minutes walk to Pooles cavern & Buxton Country Park and about 10-15 minutes walk into Buxton town. There was three of us staying in one room, which comprised of a double and a single bed, there was plenty of space and very comfortable. The accommodation is set in a victorian house and the hosts have tried to maintain the same ambient throughout, including the breakfast. The breakfast was truly amazing and very filling, with a varied choice of only vegetarian options but you did not miss the non-veg option in anyway. The birdcage, comprising of fruit yogurt, danish pastries and croissants was a nice touch and enough for two people. If you couldn't finish it, the hosts provided you with a container so you could have the rest for lunch. We've stayed at many places but I must say that the Kingscroft had the best vegetarian/vegan breakfast ever, and a real change to the normal English breakfast fry up, with plenty of fresh fruit and homemade smoothies and yogurts. The rooms were also well equipped with fresh fruit and still and sparkling water too (in the fridge), with the added luxury of using bathrobes and slippers at an additional. cost. Overall, we could not say anything negative thing about the Kingscroft, we had a great time and hope to be back very soon.

The owners were so helpful and friendly and could not do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. The room was spotless, and the breakfasts superb. Cannot recommend enough.

The full Buxton Victorian experience!
At the upper end of my price range but worth every penny. Vicky and Wally could not have been more helpful (including lifts), the breakfasts were fabulous, and the house was Victorian elegant without being Edwardian fussy. Nice touches: provision of face flannels, shower mat, slippers and bathrobes; radio available on TV, white tablecloths and real cutlery!
