  • "Up there with the best, of many, cottages we have stayed in."

    Brilliant communication from hosts, well equipped and stylish furnishings and trendy crockery. Tideswell delivers 4 pubs, fish and chips and an Italian as well as a bakers, butchers and small supermarket. It is also a gateway to numerous dales for fabulous walks from the door. We can’t fault anything and will return.

    Easy car parking and close to pub and shops. Two good sized bedrooms. Outdoor space a bit limited. Good base to explore the Peak District.

    Take slippers - floorboards upstairs are a little rough! We have stayed in Tideswell twice now - good base for walks and nice to have a choice of decent pubs without having to drive.

  • "What a gem!"

    Lovely cottage in Tideswell, which is ideal for exploring the Peaks. Village has lots of useful shops, pubs and a fish and chip shop. The cottage has the benefit of easy parking nearby and a covered courtyard. On the negative side we found the kitchen very cluttered, especially the cupboards, which were full of stuff that was probably never used. We had to empty a drawer, full of utensils, to find a can open, which didn't work very well. We usually take some food with us, which we hadn't anywhere to store. Only a minor thing and we would recommend and use again.

    Thanks David. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We will check out the can opener. Property Owner

    it would be useful to have some information in the property about local resources and opening times etc It would be helpful if there was a book where visitors could write down places of interest in the area

    very stylish. Smart tv and Alexa covered entertainment options. Sofas and beds were comfy, visited during very hot weather and the house was easy to keep cool, a great place to retreat to at the end of the day. The village location was very good, everything you needed within a short stroll, definitely planning to revisit.

    Glad your enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "We loved it, really comfortable, well furnished with pretty much everything there."

    Couple of things as you asked for suggestions: my daughter was in the first bedroom as you come up the stairs and found the street light came through the gaps around the edge of the blind causing the room to be lit all night. You might incude a file with instructions on the amenities and local restaurants, services, etc. And we took the coasters from the kitchen into the lounge in the evenings to protect the furniture, maybe you could add a few in there? That's about all we could think of, otherwise it's great. Thank you !!!

    Thanks for your feedback. We have added more coasters and we appreciate you taking good care to protect the furniture. We are looking into options for blinds. Property Owner

    The house was immaculate and very comfortable. I sugest a visitor's book, and a non slip bath mat for the shower. Also the wooden step by the bath needs replacing with one or something that doesn't slide when you step on it. I twisted my back but fortunately OK now. Hope to stay again. Oh and the prosecco was a lovely touch. Thank you.

    Thanks for the feedback, and sorry to hear about your back. We have added a non-slip mat in the bath and replaced the wooden step-on with a cloth one. Property Owner

    The cottage is well equipped with modern and stylish furnishings. The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms more spacious than they look in the photos. We appreciated the log burner and the logs etc left for this. The check in was easy and the accommodation had everything we needed for a very enjoyable holiday. We would definitely recommend and look forward to a return visit!

  • "The cottage is fine (but would be a bit cramped for four adults) It’s warm and comfortable and a good location."

    A few things need improving:- The lighting in the lounge/living room is very dim and not adequate to allow reading in the evenings....which we and many others do. This needs sorting. There was no teapot which should be a standard item. There was no information/instructions on use of equipment. We worked out the cooker/oven but couldn’t get the television to work properly - a user guide is all we needed! I believe these issues can be easily resolved. Car parking in the square was ok since once there we left the car for three days.

    Thank you for your comments. To address your points: We have now improved the lighting in the living room so that it provides for reading whilst still giving ambience. There was a tea pot in one of the cupboards and we have now added a second one. Instruction booklets for appliances are in the living room corner cupboard. We will now mention this in our welcome message so that people know where to find them if needed. The TV aerial was down and we have now had a new one installed. Thank you for drawing this to our attention. We are glad you found the cottage warm, comfortable, in a good location and with adequate parking. Property Owner

    Cottage is a delight, a great mix of contemporary and period. We all found the house to be warm, bright and comfortable-especially the King sized beds. Kitchen is well equipped, cooked most nights. At night the area, although central to amenities, is very quite apart the mellow peel of the Church bell, you could hear a pin drop outside. People in village are friendly, great amenities including an excellent butcher with pork from her own farm. Greengrocer, bakery and small co-op. Ate at The Star, few hundred yds away, excellent "home cooked" food and the George inn for Mothers day. Thoroughly recommended 2 Market Sq. Worth a trip if going further afield, is Jodrell Bank, fascinating day out.

  • "We loved our stay at the cottage from the moment we arrived until we sadly left."

    The owners have made sure everything you need is readily available and we very much appreciated the bottle of wine chilling in the fridge upon our arrival. Free use of the supplied fire wood was another addition we felt an example of the owners going the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and great value. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout with a clean and modern yet cosy cottage feel which really made it a home from home. Tideswell itself is a lovely little village with 2 pubs and a range of shops to get your groceries from within a few minutes walk. Great base to explore the Peaks. We would highly recommend

  • "Beautifully appointed and cosy."

    Really comfy beds, lovely clean bathroom and kitchen. I’ve stayed twice now and the convenience for the amenities in Tideswell, available parking and it’s central position for walking and attractions in the Peaks has been perfect for our needs. If I had one complaint it’s about light. The lighting in the house is set up for mood rather than practicality and there’s a lack of bright enough lights for reading and planning walking routes in the lounge. There’s also an excess of light coming through the blinds from street lights at night as they don’t fit the windows. The second time I visited I took a sleep mask and we did all our map and walking guidebook reading before it got dark!

    Great renovation with history in mind. Quite comfortable and cosy. Wanted to buy this cottage, loved everything about it and the village of Tideswell. We have rented several cottages over the years during our trips to England and this has by far been our favorite. Loved the fact there was enough wood for us to have a fire each night. We were able to walk to several pubs and grocery. This is the lifestyle I crave. I thank the owners had guests in mind with every change they made.

The property

Perched on a quiet road in the centre of Tideswell village in Derbyshire, is this superb, two-bedroom terraced cottage, 2 Market Square.

Boasting an excellent location within the Peak District National Park with an abundance of walks right on your doorstep, as well as an interior enjoying original beams and features, 2 Market Square is a fabulous dwelling for two couples or a family of four who are looking to escape to the Peaks.

Take advantage of the ample parking available in the market square adjacent to the property, before unloading your bags and making your way into your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into the delightful kitchen, where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious feasts for your guests with the help of the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge, ready to be enjoyed at the dining table for four with a bottle of wine.

If you’re lucky enough to have sunshine, make dinner an alfresco affair and fire up the barbecue out on the private courtyard which is sheltered just in case of rainy spells!

As the evening cools, retreat inside to the sitting room, where you can add a log to the crackling woodburning stove and snuggle up on the plush sofas, as you select your favourite film from the TV.

As your eyes grow heavy, climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will discover two well-presented king-size bedrooms, each with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and indulge in a blissful soak in the bath or refreshing shower, before savouring a morning coffee and heading out for the day.

Explore the local village where you are just moments away from the impressive church, known by the locals as the ‘Cathedral of the Peak’, as well as an excellent selection of cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways for when you don’t feel like cooking!

Take the short drive over to Buxton, where you can brush up on the local history at the Buxton Museum & Art Gallery, tuck-in to a homemade picnic in Buxton Park or enjoy an evening of culture and live performances at the Buxton Opera House.

For those in your party seeking something more adventurous, look no further than Poole’s Cavern, where you can embark on a tour of the fascinating underground limestone caves, as well as woodland trails available in the country park.

Budding historians will not want to miss the opportunity to visit Solomon’s Temple, a landmark spanning from the 19th-century and offering incomparable Peak District views from its top.

Just a little further is the charming town of Bakewell, home to the interesting Old House, the historic arched Bakewell Bridge and the renowned Bakewell Tart Shop where you can sample the local delicacy.

Be sure to head to the lavish stately home of Chatsworth House nearby, where you can tour its expansive interior with an excellent art collection, as well as the gardens which feature a farmyard, temple, fountain and labyrinth.

For a getaway to the Peak District like no other, choose 2 Market Square.
