About Nikki and John Turton

Bringing up a family, working in Engineering and Mid Life Career Coaching, we decided on a complete change discovering a new phase in our lives after the boys grew up and left home.

We enjoy village life, old properties and walking in beautiful surroundings with our golden retriever. Now we also have more time to spend with wider family, visit historic places and theatres and try activties such as dry stone wall building in our garden..

We are available to help with anything you might wish to know both before and during your stay.

Nikki and John Turton purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Nikki and John Turton chose Derbyshire Dales

Visiting and holidaying in the area for over 35 years with our family, friends and dogs, we were delighted when we discovered this characterful property, The Corner House in Tideswell. Old beams, log fire,stone floors, quirky corners, larder and cellar. Centrally-placed in the village, next to historic buildings, this house allows for a car free walking and cycling base in the Peak District National Park. We have family links to Sheffield, Bakewell and Buxton and appreciate what the Peak District has to offer for all ages.

What makes this cottage unique

Central Village location, a friendly, community feel to Tideswell, a working village with holiday makers easily mixing in with so many cafes, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep. Many beautiful Peak District walks right from the cottage front door for dogs.

Idyllic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed with another couple and our black labrador 'Buzz'. The cottage was well located with all the amenities. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

The beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. Thoroughly recommend.

Beautiful Cottage, Beautiful Village, Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Cornerhouse with 2 small children (7 & 9) and had a wonderful time. There was a great welcome basket packed with local goodies for us to try, comfy beds and wonderful shower! Wood burner plus logs not needed! Tideswell is a really pretty and interesting village with good shops and a lovely atmosphere, and is very central for walking or visiting local attractions - the children liked Bolsover Castle (45 mins) and the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton (25 mins) best. We liked the fabulous countryside and tea rooms. Only slight issue with our autistic grandson was the church bells so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper - the rest of us slept through! Will definitely return.

Charming, comfortable, convenient and marvellously located.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Corner House for 3 weeks in May 2017 and had another couple visit us for part of the time. The house and village were perfect for us, the 3-story house is charming, lovely, and well-equipped with quality furnishings and linens. We came to the Peak District from the U.S. for walking, and after a good day's walk the house was a welcoming refuge to come home to. Tideswell, too was perfect. It is just large enough to have all the services you need, but small enough so that you can walk everywhere and even get to know some of the local shopkeepers. We had several fine walks right from town. In fact, in our travels around the region we did not see a village that we'd rather stay in, and in our walks around Tideswell we did not see a house in a better location - a step away from the shops yet tucked away on a quiet lane across from the beautiful churchyard and church. Nikki and John were extremely thoughtful, helpful and responsive. We highly recommend this place.

Beautiful home in a cozy little English town.

  • 5 of 5

The corner house far exceeded my expectations. The home has so much character and was perfectly laid out for the 5 adults in my party. We could not have asked for better hosts. After a long day of travel I almost cried for joy when finding a bottle of red wine and all the other goodies in our welcome basket. We had all the fixings for breakfast so we could relax and sleep in and eat breakfast before starting our exploration of the local area. The only problem we encountered was that the house was so amazing we didn't want to leave! Our 3 day stay was much too short and we will have to come back for a longer visit. Thank you again Nikki and John!

On your doorstep through winding paths are wonderful local shops, a bakery, a butcher, delicatessens, Post Office, and dog friendly pubs and cafés, all serving homemade local produce including local real ales. You can access walks from Tideswell village centre to experience panoramic Peak District views.

Tideswell is a little gem in the countryside, centrally located on main scenic routes through the Peak District National Park, only a short drive or bus journey to the main attractions of Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Buxton, and many more.

The village has an interesting history that can be discovered by visiting the Cathedral of the Peak, the History ‘phone box’, following the Tideswell Hidden histories trail, and talking to the friendly locals of the village.

Ask most people what they know about Bakewell and it’s surely the Bakewell pudding. Bakewell is a very popular tourist attraction and its streets are busy whatever time of year.

Bakewell was granted its market charter in 1254. With a population of around 4000, known locally as the “Capital of the Peak” the town lies approximately 7 miles and about 15 minutes drive from Cornerhouse, Tideswell. Regular bus routes link directly between Tideswell and Bakewell meaning you can leave your car at home for the day out.

The annual Bakewell Show held in August is one of the largest events locally and one of the oldest Agricultural shows in the UK. Weekly markets on Mondays, Bakewell Farmers markets, established for over 700 years, held on the first Saturday of the month, lanes, shopping arcades to explore, walks along the river bank to watch the ducks and trout swimming, tea rooms and The famous Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, plus Christmas Market will offer you an exciting day out.

Chatsworth is approximately 10 miles and a 20 minute drive from Corner house in Tideswell. Chatsworth, known as the “Palace of The Peak” is one of Britain’s most visited stately homes. It has glorious grounds and deer parks to walk through, cafes, restaurants to try, adventure playgrounds for kids and a farm shop to browse.

Chatsworth is an historic house family home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and has been a film location for several films and documentaries including Pride & Prejudice and Death comes to Pemberley.

Edensor (pronounced Enza) is a village in Derbyshire is the closest village to Chatsworth House and much of it belongs to the Dukes of Devonshire. Originally the village was close to the River Derwent immediately below Chatsworth, but between 1838 and 1842, the 6th duke of Devonshire had it moved out of sight over a hill, apart from one cottage whose tenant did not want to move, which still stands in Chatsworth Park.

Try the small café which can be found in the old Post Office in Edensor, serving delicious homemade lunches, cakes, coffees and teas.

Buxton was built as a Spa town and is situated at a higher altitude than and approximately 7 miles and about 15 minutes drive from Cornerhouse, Tideswell. Regular bus routes link directly between Tideswell and Buxton if you want to leave your car at home.

Buxton was modelled on Bath and Cheltenham with its elegant sweeping semi-circle of The Crescent designed by John Carr of York built in 1784. Buxton is now a small market town with shops to explore and having cultural experiences at Buxton Opera House and Arts Centre, beautiful 23 acres of Pavilion Gardens in the heart of the town to walk through and a large dome which is now part of the University of Derbyshire to explore.

St Anne’s well is still a source of the famous waters and you can see local people queuing up to fill containers with the tepid water.

Weekly markets, shopping arcades to explore, Well Dressing ceremonies, Christmas market and festivals will tempt you from Tideswell.

In the Peak District there is an unrivalled range of walking and cycling available. From gentle riverside such as the local Tideswell Dales or on one of the Railway trails, to tough Moorland treks across some of the most challenging walking country in Britain on those northern access moors. Few places in Britain have such an infinite variety of walking opportunities in such a small area. Cornerhouse is centrally located in the Peak District making it an ideal base to explore walks and cycle ways.

To get away from the crowds in the 555 square-mile National Park there is an unrivalled network of around 1,400 miles of public rights of way, plus easy leisure routes such as the local Monsal Trail which has been developed from derelict railway lines.
