About the property

Butterfield Cottage, Tideswell, Peak District, Derbyshire, England - sleeps 6

Butterfield Cottage, couldn't be better placed for a self catering holiday for 6 in the Peak District National Park. It lies in the heart of the national park in a quiet spot on the edge of Tideswell, just a 5 minute stroll from shops, pubs and tearooms. Completely refurbished, it provides bright and airy accommodation. Stylishly decorated throughout in English country cottage style, with good quality furniture and antiques to create an extremely comfortable and relaxing environment complete with all the modern facilities required for a perfect self catering holiday. It has some of the best views in Tideswell across the dale and is not overlooked. The cottage has a lovely outdoor sitting and dining area to the front of the cottage and free Wi Fi. It's particularly suited to families with older children and groups getting together, and for those who enjoy walking, culture and outdoor pursuits. Groups of 12 can be accommodated if booked together with Badger Cottage in Cressbrook (2 miles apart).

Well worth a try

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was gutted and cleverly designed so that the downstairs is spacious, but upstairs is slightly cramped for 6. It is on the edge of the village, but still only a brisk five minuted to the shops, so is nice and peaceful

Butterfield cottage Tideswell

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this cottage. It is spacious for 6, homely, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Information from owners was clear and accurate and they made it easy to book etc. We went in deepest winter and the cottage was lovely and warm.

The area is stunning. Amazing walks from the doorstep and Tideswell has a handy, inexpensive local store plus excellent pubs and cafes for food. It's a really pretty village. We plan to return!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a great location. Lots of local amenities and a great base for the peaks.

Manages to be spacious and cosy at the same time!! Was lovely and clean and the tea and biscuits left for us where a great touch. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher.

The owner was very easy to deal with and responded to all queries very promptly.

Highly recommended.
