  • “We have never been disappointed by a Sykes cottage holiday.”

    It is easy to book online, the communication is good and the cottages always of a high standard.

    It is easy to book online, the communication is good and the cottages always of a high standard. We were grateful that Sykes allowed us to rebook this holiday, at no extra cost, when Covid prevented us from going last year. Owl Cottage was particularly special with the owner providing lots of thoughtful extras.

The property

Owl Cottage is a terraced cottage which rests amidst the delights of Tideswell, right in the heart of the superb Peak District National Park.

Surrounded by seemingly infinite outdoor opportunities, and with excellent access to a number of must-visit towns, this is a wonderful base for two couples looking to get away and let their hair down together.

Be drawn into the property by its enticing living area, charmed by stunning exposed beams and benefiting from the warmth of a wooburning stove for those cosy nights in watching films.

The other side of the room hosts a lovely dining table, as well as a window seat overlooking the centre of this friendly Derbyshire village.

Step through into the refreshingly decorated kitchen, compact in size, yet excellently equipped to make it a practical edition to this fantastic holiday home.

Take the stairs to reach the first floor, here you will find Owl Cottage's two bedrooms, both are furnished in peaceful neutral colours, while the master room benefits from an attractive feature fireplace.

The interior concludes in a pristine manner, with a glistening family bathroom boasting a fresh all-white suite.

To relax among this serene rural location, climb the steps to reach the enclosed patio at the back of the property, a superb spot to sit and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a chilled drink in hand.

Tideswell is a wonderful place to base your Peak District holiday, its pretty main street plays host to an assortment of fine pubs, eateries and more.

The surrounding area offers a wealth of opportunity for lovers of the outdoors, with a multitude of picturesque paths and trails, leading through some of the most idyllic scenery imaginable.

For a slower-paced break, visit the variety of fascinating towns that sit within reach, including the beautiful spa town of Buxton and the fabulous market town of Bakewell.

Escape to the wondrous Peak District with your loved ones at charm-filled Owl Cottage.

About the location


Buxton 9 miles; Bakewell 9 miles.

The village of Tideswell stands in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Famous for its fine church dedicated to St John the Baptist, known as "The Cathedral of the Peak", the village is also noted for its well dressing and carnival wakes. There is excellent walking with rugged peaks to the north, gentle hills and dales to the south and Millers Dale just outside the village. Mam Tor and Castleton are only a few miles away and the popular Spa town of Buxton is within a 15 minute drive. Tideswell has many fine country inns, a chemist, butchers, bakers and much more including a convenient supermarket open daily until 10pm. The pretty little market town of Bakewell is also just a short drive away and well worth a visit.
