Tideswell Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Bluebell Cottage, Tideswell, Peak District, Derbyshire, England - Once a pub, still a very warm welcome! - a great place for families and friends to get together,

Bluebell Cottage is one of the oldest properties in Tideswell dating right back to the 18th Century,and was formerly a bustling village pub. It’s in an unrivalled spot nestling in a quiet side street right in the heart of the village, close to 'The Cathedral of the Peak,' and good range of local shops, pubs and tearooms that offer fresh local produce. It's been restored to a high standard for modern living whilst keeping the original stone and wood structures with wooden nails. It's a bright spacious character cottage which is particularly suited to families or friends getting together and is often used for special birthday and other celebrations. Book it together with Butterfield Cottage, just a ten minute stroll away to cater for groups of up to 14 guests. Tideswell is gaining a reputation as a foodie village has its own range of branded goods. The cottage is well placed for walking and for exploring the myriad of attractions in the National Park

Great location, lovely cottage.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well designed cottage in a great location in the beautiful village of Tideswell. The cottage and village have everything you could want, and there are great walks direct from the cottage- and the pubs are good too :). I'm sure we'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back to the cottage and get your views on the improvements planned for 2016 - new double glazed windows and a new front door by Easter, and a new kitchen installed later in the year!

Good holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bluebell Cottage for 4 nights. The property was as described, well-equiped, clean and tidy, good value for money and the customer service couldn't be faulted. The location was convenient for quite a few attractions in the Peak District and I would recommend this cottage for families. The local shops and pubs are OK and convenient (if a bit limited in choice) and there is a great secondhand bookstore around the corner!
