  • "Wonderfully appointed cottage with full facilities, situated in a quiet village about halfway between Bakewell and Buxton."

    We have stayed in several different locations within the Peak District over 12 years and this property is the stand out best. One could easily live there. A home from home.

    Thanks very much for your lovely review. Pleased you enjoyed our ‘home from home’ experience. Rosie, our housekeeper is a diamond! We hope you will be back in the future Kind Regards Jeanne & Andrew Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely cottage, very well appointed and spotlessly clean."

    Its village location was great for having local amenities within walking distance whilst having beautiful countryside on the doorstep. The only downside for us was the lack of private outdoor space. The rear courtyard appeared to have a permitted access across it for people living in properities at the back of the cottage. Whislt this wasn't a problem for us on this holiday it would be a consideration if we were looking to book during the summer months.

  • "This is a lovely cottage and beautifully furnished."

    It has everything you may need for your stay. We were dissapointed though that on web site it states off road parking. This is not the case. Yes it is off the main road but parking is on a slip road with a few other cottages. Therefore it is first come gets a space which we only got once. We have only booked places with proper off road or an allocated space.There is a carpark opposite for the school which a lot of people use but it gets very busy with walkers and pub goers etc. In summer it would be difficult to park. We also did not see a washing machine as stated, though didn't bother us but might some people. Due to the weather and Covid restrictions the owners pub opposite was only open Sunday which was a shame.

    The washing machine is in the shed and we would have been only too happy to tell you this if we had known you couldn't find it, we were available every day for any queries you may have had, and we're sorry we weren't given the opportunity to help you on this occasion. The parking is off the main road and is in a secure dedicated road for the row of properties adjacent to the cottage and there is further parking available across the village green. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with a warm welcome, beautifully clean and well laid out with almost everything you could want."

    Well placed for walks both locally and a short drive away with the owner’s pub across the green. The only thing we wished for was Wi-fi as the phone signal is pretty much non-existent.

  • "Chuch View cottage is for us an ideal location with opportunities for walking in the Peak district but also within reach of interesting towns such a Buxton and Bakewell with local shopping and wonderful churches in Tideswell and Bakewell."

    We had intended to visit Museums and Art Galleries in Sheffield and Manchester which are not far away but this time we were prevented because of the coronavirus situation. We would like to come back sometime. The facilities at Church View Cottage are excellent. We had a very friendly welcome.

During the summer months, the rear courtyard offers an alternative dining spot, while the quaint front terrace is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee whilst watching the world go by.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short stroll across the village green will bring you to the award-winning countryside delight of The Red Lion Inn, with a delicious dining menu with something to suit all palettes and dietary requirements.

The village also plays host to a small village shop, where you can pick up any essentials or a fresh loaf of bread to enjoy back at Church View Cottage at breakfast.

Just up the road is Tideswell, boasting an outstanding church and home to the “Cathedral of the Peak”, there’s plenty of architectural wonder to explore here, as well as a butcher, baker and pharmacy ideal for all of your last-minute amenities, and a café and restaurant serving tasty treats.

Many lovely walks start and end at Church View Cottage which is located by the Monsal Trail, which is a traffic free route through some of the Peak District's most spectacular limestone dales and is ideal for cyclists.

If you’re seeking historical excitement and even more impressive splendours, the gems of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall can be found within easy reach, as well as both Buxton and Bakewell making for a great day out for all tastes.
