Why Tanya Frost chose Tideswell
Having both enjoyed holidays with family and friends to the Peak District in the past we found ourselves holidaying here together prior to deciding it would be a great place to have a holiday home. We love the location of the property as Tideswell provides a central base to explore the many attractions and beautiful scenery of the Peak District. The cottage itself is also in a great location within Tideswell as it is only a short walk from all the village amenities, and more importantly opposite a great pub, the Horse and Jockey!

Perfect weekend away
We had a fantastic girls walking holiday and the cottage was a great base to go from! The village has some great pubs - we loved our meal at The Merchants Yard. The cottage was clean, nicely decorated and in a great location.
Great location for exploring the peak district.
Ideal location, clean and functional and cosy. Tideswell has some wonderfull 'foody' places to explore. The little terrace garden was nice. We would visit again but the only bits that let the property down ( which are generally expected these days for holiday rentals) was the lack of 'WiFi' -( it was advertised it had no wifi) , the oven only the top heating element seemed to work so things took a bit longer to cook. The shower struggled because of the lack of water pressure -which is a water board issue(maybe the owner should contact the water board as it is a legal requirement for them to supply you with a minimum of 4.5 litres in 30 seconds from your kitchen tap). We were visiting family for a funeral but it was lovely space to relax afterwards, thank you.
Chimney pots is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful Derbyshire area.
The cottage is well equipped, and very cosy. I booked this for my parents who are both seventy, and they've had a lovely break. The top garden is accessed by next door up a few steep steps, but they are wide with a hand rail, so know issues. A great view point at the end of the day with a glass of wine.
Tidy Little Cottage
Clean and tidy cottage close to all the amenities.Log burner with some wood supplied, we took some with us just in case and as it was cold we used plenty.
The whole cottage warmed up very quickly.
We found the cottage to be very comfortable especially the beds.
All in all a very pleasant place to stay and discover the local area.
Well equipped,perfect position,very clean,washer didn’t work though which hasn’t been fixed after previous comments,back bedroom was damp fusty and cold,mould in the bathroom,fridge not big enough,and we had no logs or sticks for a first fire,but it was a nice cottage,these points need addressing though
On arriving at the property we found it to be clean and tidy, there was a packed of cookies and a pint of milk in the fridge, very thoughtful until we went to use the milk it was sour it had the 9th November on it we didnt arrive until the 12th. The fridge freezer needs to be bigger to accommodate 4 people. The floorboards upstairs creak very badly when walked on so during the night if you have to get up you certainly cant help but make a noise. The view from the kitchen was into a high brick wall which you had to go up steps to get into the garden. The stairs were quite steep. The water pressure was something else if you wanted a bath you would have to put the tap on about 20 minutes before hand to have a decent amount of water in the shower was very poor only trickled out. We also didnt have any WIFI but when we originally booked this it was advertised as having this very disappointed.
We're really sorry regarding the 3 days out of date milk. The cleaner says she knew nothing about it and is no longer employed by us!
The fridge-freezer is an under-worktop type as there wasn't really anywhere else suitable to put one! This is something we will look into
when the kitchen get revamped.
The cottage is approx 300 years old and has been sympathetically restored and modernised. The floorboards upstairs do creak and we'll see what can be
done to reduce this.
There is a stone wall adjacent to the rear of the property which is the foundation to the terraced garden. The steps are quite steep due the the steep incline of the surrounding hills.
It has been pointed out to us that at times the water pressure is low so we have raised the issue with the water company who're investigating the matter.
When Homeaway group took over Owners Direct (who we originally listed the property with) a couple of details were changed without our knowledge.
We have never had Wi-fi at the cottage and only realised the listing had changed to include this once someone pointed it out to us! We have since amended it to say there is no Wi-fi at the property.
