About Julie or Nigel Halliwell
Nigel & I have been together for over 25 years and we have travelled quite extensively with Nigel's love of landscape photography behind many of the choices of our destinations. We both strive for perfection in our home & garden but don't quite achieve it due to our lovely little dog Lilly, who we adore & forgive anything!
Julie or Nigel Halliwell purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Julie or Nigel Halliwell chose Buxton
It was just the right size for us - great kerb appeal even prior to the renovation & in exactly the perfect location for Nigel to get to his 'remote' spots for sunrise and sunset. The abundance of local shops including pubs & cafes meant I could have a 'tipple' without worrying about driving home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Large master bedroom with exposed beams but with plenty of headroom. Secure courtyard for toddlers & dogs. Entrance is not direct off the street into the lounge meaning the lounge remains snug and private. Situated on a corner you can watch the world go around and sun shines on the front of the property in the morning and then on the end in the afternoon - perfect.

Beautiful clean cosy cottage
Absolutely beautiful cosy very clean cottage, furnished to a high standard, with everything thought of and included. Bottle of wine and cake upon arrival, comfy robes, amazing beds. Lovely kitchen, living room with a TV for all the channels - plus games, books, magazines and comfy throws next to the log fire. Thank you for a lovely weekend and we look forward to coming back soon.
Thank you Tiffany for your glowing review especially about the comfy beds which took us ages to choose. I have to say I like to indulge in a few monthly magazines & I am glad you were able to get the log fire burning for your stay it does make it feel really cosy. BUT the main point you made which pleases me was that is was clean I will pass on your review to our cleaning team who try very hard to ensure our guests are happy.
Take care & thank you again.
Pics and description are thorough and accurate. For a village experience, TOTS was perfect. Small, but easily adequate for groups up to 4. Completely updated in all respects. Exceptionally clean. Kitchen well stocked with all the essentials. Location is in central Tideswell (a small charming village), accessible to all things "Peak" but also quiet for those nights at "home". Julie was a great communicator and all arrangements were great. No problem recommending.
Hi Both - I apologise for taking so long to say THANKYOU for your kind review. It is always great to let the cleaning team know that their hard work is noticed. I have been pondering & since reading your comments perhaps I should make it clearer that although we can sleep 6 guests we only have 2 actual bedrooms. Mmmm... difficult one to call but glad your happy to recommend us & even happier that you thought our humble cottage was 'perfect' PS thank you so very, very much for the gift you left for our guests to enjoy - that was really very kind of you. Take care & thanks for coming to TOTS Kindest regards Julie & Nigel Halliwell
The lovely TOTS
It is clear as soon as you walk-in that Julie and Nigel have put so much effort into making TOTS a really special cottage. It was perfect for our family of two adults, two children and two dogs. The decor is lovely and calming and the beds are very comfortable. It is equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday in the Peaks with plenty of amazing walks straight from the door. There are also some good options for eating out locally in Tideswell and we would recommend High Nelly’s for breakfast/brunch, the H&D bistro also does great breakfasts and the takeaway curry they do on a Thursday was very good. We also ate at the Star Inn one evening - it’s a busy little place so best to book and the food was of a really high standard. We would definitely like to visit again - maybe in the winter next time to make use of the log burner! Thoroughly recommend TOTS and Julie was a great host.
Hi Vicky & Family- Thank you for kindly posting such a great review of our cottage. I am happy to know there was room for all of you & that you loved the area. We are so lucky to have such great choice of walk's & the close proximity of the pubs is an added bonus. I am glad you liked our choice of colours all by Little Green Co and that you found the beds were comfortable. I have amended my information sheets to include the information you found out about the Thursday Take Away curry from H & D's. I look forward to hearing from you again so you can try out the 'multi fuel' log burner it is ubber cosy! All the best & thank you again for choosing TOTS. Best Regards Julie & Nigel
An amazing holiday
Superb from being to end. One of best and most beautiful places we’ve ever stayed
Hi Both - I am delighted that all 4 of you & the dog enjoyed stopping at our cottage so much, its good to know that people think the place & area is beautiful! You were super guests & you made the changeover much easier for us by leaving the cottage so tidy thank you very much for that & we would be delighted to welcome you back anytime. Best regards & thank you for choosing TOTS for your family holiday.
A very well equipped home from home. Very comfortable beds and good location. Even though TOTS is in the centre of town the road becomes quiet in the evening. The outdoor space is great if the weather is good. It gets the sun in the morning for breakfast AND in the evening for the sundowners. We hope we will be back.
Escaping it all
The Old Toffee shop was a great place to stay for our weekend away with the kids. It was definitely a home from home, with those little extras which make the weekend special. Tideswell has everything a Peak District village can offer. We we definitely return!
