Swift Cottage is a three bedroom quality cottage ideally placed for a self-catering holiday for groups of up to 5 in the Peak District National Park. One of four terraced former quarrymen's dwellings dating back to the early 1800s, Swift Cottage is located in a peaceful location on the edge of Tideswell.
Recently refurbished and well-maintained, it provides spotlessly clean, bright and airy accommodation with quality furnishings throughout, creating an unparalleled environment with all the modern facilities required for a perfect self-catering holiday. For guests' comfort during the 2018 season so far we have installed a quality Miele cooker, new Silentnight mattresses, as well as adding crockery and cooking utensils by top brands such as Le Creuset and Sarbatier.
Swift Cottage has some of the best views in Tideswell, overlooking the well-kept cottage garden to the dale beyond. The cottage is professionally maintained and benefits from quality wooden flooring in bedroooms and sitting room, a paved patio with teak garden furniture and a luxury bathroom with underfloor heating, a whirlpool bath and separate shower. Free WiFi is provided together with Now TV, which provides access to thousands of streaming movies, catch-up TV and Sky news channels. Local walking and guide books, games and novels, a Blu Ray player and 34" flat screen television are provided in the cosy sitting room, complete with log burner.
Main access is via the shared level footpath across the fronts of the two neighbouring cottages to the right on the terrace, with additional access via steps through the front garden and through the back entrance leading to the off road car park.
Secure storage is provided for up to 4 bicycles and a barbecue is supplied for outdoor cooking on the patio.
The cottage is annually accessed and rated at Visit Britain 4 Star standard, and equipped accordingly. Swift Cottage has received many five star reviews and is rated "Excellent" on a popular site which provides advice for those going on trips.
A travel cot is available on request, together with a high chair.
The cottage is particularly suited to couples, small groups and families who are seeking that little bit of extra luxury from a country cottage holiday.
Parking in the Townhead area of Tideswell is plentiful, either in the free Parish Council maintained car park 25 metres to the rear of the cottage or on the surrounding roads.
Minimum 3 night breaks are offered out of season (October - March, excluding some holiday periods), minimum 7 nights during high season (Saturday changeover).
