It has been beautifully restored, individually designed with attention to detail with all modern amenities.

All our beds are exceptionally comfortable and the cottage is spotlessly clean, modern and very attractive.

Melanie Greening-James purchased this cottage in 1994
We purchased the Barn (which is a Grade II Listed Building full of character) 21 years ago to move into the beautiful Peak District. We have been here ever since and live right next door to the Barn. Tideswell and the Peak District is a wonderful place to live and work let alone come for a holiday!
We love the location of the Village - and a Village with heart and activity. Tideswell does not suffer from hordes of tourists (such as Castleton, Buxton & Bakewell) so you will meet local people who work locally and are happy to pass the time of day with you. It is an exceptionally friendly Village and you immediately feel at home once you arrive. We get many, many people who return year on year -
We are ideally located right in the very heart of the Peak District National Park. You can easily walk (or ride a bike) out of the front door into unspoilt countryside. If you want more formal activities you can be at Chatsworth, Haddon Hall or Bakewell/Buxton in a short time.
The Village has excellent facilities including a host of shops; butcher, baker, chemist, supermarket, bank, tea rooms, coffe shop, deli, fish and chip shop and of course 3 very good pubs all serving local food and drink.
Tideswell is a charming 'real' village made up mainly of residents where life seems to slow down to a past era. Relax and enjoy the setting.

Tideswell is a 'real working' village which sustains itself. The Village is famous for the large church in the centre of the village known as 'the cathedral of the peaks' It is very impressive and well worthy of a visit once you arrive. Tideswell is also very well known for its Well Dressing and Village Carnival. This takes place on the 3rd Saturday in June every year.The village has 3 great local pubs, a cracking cafe, chemist, family butchers, bakers, fish and chip shop and a Co-Op supermarket which is open 7 days a week until 10pm everynight! We actively encourage guests to use the local shops and drink the local ale to keep the village sustainable - its also very 'green' these days!
