"The cottage is ideally located in the village of Tideswell."
The cottage, although spread over 3 floors, is quite small. It was OK for the 2 of us (plus dog) but I would not want to stay here with any more than that. Our biggest issue was that there is no enclosed outdoor space so you have to keep your dog on a lead at all times when sitting outside as you are adjacent to a road (that does get busy sometimes). Tideswell is a lovely village, however, the church bells ring every quarter of an hour, 24 hours per day, which I found very intrusive....especially during the night. We were at least 200m away from the church but they can be clearly heard during the night even with the windows shut! Unsurprisingly this stops people buying property close to the church according to people we spoke to.
"Lovely little cottage in the beautiful village of Tideswell."
Great base to explore the many walks and definitely spoilt for choice for eating and drinking establishments. Cottage had everything required for a short stay. Modern kitchen facilities, small living area with tv and sofa's, two bedrooms and an excellent shower room. Owners of the property very helpful and ensured that the property was ready for our arrival. Would definitely use again.
thanks for the review, you had some good weather as well, please call again,cheers. Property Owner

"My family (including our dog) and I had an enjoyable stay in this lovely cottage April 23 (a home from home)."
The kitchen was well equipped, the lounge and bedrooms were very comfortable. Also parking was not an issue. The cottage's location was perfect situated in a very friendly village with pubs and shops only a few minutes walk away, there were also some nice nearby walks to go on. Would highly recommend this cottage. A big thank you from my family and I to the owners.
Thank you for the kind words Property Owner
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 1A Market Square."
The Cottage was ample for our needs. Tideswell is a lovely place with all the amenities you need for a weeks holiday. We would certainly consider going back at a later date. If you enjoy walking Tideswell is a great location.
"The property is in a convenient location looking onto a small square of charming Derbyshire cottages in the very pretty village of Tideswell."
The owners were very helpful and friendly with a lovely touch of a welcome bottle of wine. Cottage is comfortable, very clean and well- organised. Great place to access walks around the village and to eat in friendly local pubs a short walk from the cottage.
"This is a nice cosy cottage which is really well situated."
The village has several good dog friendly pubs and cafes and a shop. There is a lot of information in the property about local walks in the Peak District many of which are in the immediate vicinity. We would definitely stay here again.
thanks always good to know we are appreciated, and hopefully, you will come again. Property Owner

Tideswell is a lovely rural village with many facilities, co op , butchers , bakery , the star inn was spot on for home cooked food , Jonny the landlord was very welcoming . Great walks around the area . Plenty of parking outside the property . Overall a very nice stay .
thanks for the kind words Property Owner
"Really nice village with a few local pubs, cafes, a bakery, shop and a chippy."
Accommodation was nice and cosy. Great walks for our dog. The small outside (garden) area is completely open, with no fence or gate which would have been ideal just for our dogs safety. FYI - The local bell ringers practice on Fridays 6:30-9pm.
"Excellent property in a great location for visiting the local area and long dog walks."
Everyone in the village was really friendly which made our stay even better as always nice to walk the dog and chat to the locals about food, areas to visit etc. Owners are nice genuine people and couldn't fault them in any way, lovely few days away.
Thanks for the feedback , we agree tideswell is probably the best of the villages in the peak.cheers Property Owner
"1A Market Place was perfect for our holiday and excellent if you have a dog."
Parking outside was never a problem and it was just a short walk to the excellent local shops. The owners were helpful and gave us really useful advice on where to take our dog on the evening walk, something that can be tricky when you’re arriving and it’s already dark.
"We would highly recommend a stay at 1A Market Square."
The cottage is immaculately clean, cosy and well equipped. The layout of the rooms was perfect for us - it was especially nice to be able to sit and eat together in the big kitchen. Tideswell is a lovely village with plenty of shops and places to eat and there was no need to get in the car to be able to enjoy many walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding it. A big thank you to our excellent hosts for their warm welcome and for all the helpful local information they gave us.
Thank you so much for your kind words , hope you come to stay again sometime . Property Owner
"A lovely cottage in a beautiful village!"
It’s well equipped for short breaks, with a great kitchen and one of the best showers I’ve experienced in a holiday cottage.
Thank you for the kind words , always good to have great feedback . Property Owner
"Fantastic cottage and location, everything you could want and need is provided."
Thanks for the great feedback , sorry not to have replied earlier . Cheers glyn and Karen . Property Owner
"Very happy with the property."
Clean and comfy, everything we needed. Bottle of wine very welcoming. Just a suggestion, a full length mirror maybe behind a door would have been handy. Overall though, ideal. Position was fab too. Will definitely be back.
Thanks for the great feedback , sorry to take so long to reply ...glyn and Karen Property Owner
"The cottage is so conveniently located for all amenities."
Local supermarket, so many places to choose from to eat and importantly such scenic walks The cottage itself provides everything that you need to make the stay so comfortable and enjoyable
we were very surprised by the mark given, particularly as we do the cleaning ourselves , and work hard to make it spotless , and since opening the cottage over 5 yrs. ago have never dropped a mark on cleaning . occasionally we do seem to drop the odd mark on comfort , and accuracy , so wanting to try and improve where we lost marks thought best to call and see if the customer could enlighten us . spoke to the customer who said he had really enjoyed the cottage and countryside and said he couldn't fault the cottage , but could not bring himself to mark it all at 100%..so ,glad he was happy Property Owner
Everything needed for a lovely stay included. Very homely and clean. The prime position in Tidewell is perfect for everything in the area and beyond. Thank you for a lovely stay.
So glad you enjoyed the cottage , you also got some great weather , stay safe hope to see you all again, all the best glyn Karen and Charlie dog . Property Owner
"We had a lovely time staying here."
It’s a great location, clean, comfortable and the shower is excellent. A short walk to the local shop and cafe. It was perfect. Thank you!
"The property and location were excellent lovely homey feel to the village and walks from the doorstep."
The property was well equipped for our break clean and beds comfortable. Our only small thought was for a child gate for the door to enable the door to be open for when sitting outside and stop dog from wandering on the roadside ( dog not 2 yet so inquisitive for passers by) Other than that well recommended Thank you
"A wonderful cottage, very comfy."
"Fantastic base for a great weekend in the Peak District."
"A lovely, well equipped and comfortable cottage in an excellent village location, with lots of great walks in the area direct from the cottage, no need to drive."
"Lovely cosy property Clean and well equipped Welcome bottle of wine a lovely touch"
"Absolutely fabulous cottage, very comfortable and extremely clean."
The beds are super comfy and the shower was lovely. The owners were very helpful and communication was great especially as I'd booked last minute. Lots of walks straight from the front door and plenty of amenities within the village. Can't recommend it enough, and I'll certainly be staying again.
"Lovely quaint cottage in a great location."
Beautifully clean and equipped. We had a wonderful time, Thank You.
"This is a little cracker of a cottage ideally situated in the lovely village of Tideswell."
The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful. As it was Xmas the cottage had been decorated and a bottle of fizz left for me; how nice! The cottage is well equipped, warm and comfortable. You can walk from the door in all directions and find dales, routes, nature, views and more. I didn’t use the car once as a result. Everything in this very friendly village is within a few minutes walk too. All of this made for a great stay in a great holiday property.
"Fantastic location for walking, outdoor swimming at Hathersage and seeing the peak district."
Lots of lovely places to eat out locally. Appreciated the file of walks from the house, would definitely visit again.
"A lovely house well located in the lovely village of Tideswell."
The house is very well equipped, very clean and has a cosy feeling. Great location to explore the Peak District. The village has the amenities you need. Would highly recommend.
"Tideswell is a fantastic location; this was our third visit - we love it and will certainly return."
The cottage was lovely and we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you
"Excellent location, beautiful town great cottage location"
"Lovely home from home in a great spot to access lovely walks."
Immaculately clean and very comfortable. Would recommend this property to all. Hosts were very helpful and pleasant. Would love to stay there again.

The owners were extremely helpful and the property was immaculate and well located.
"Fantastic cottage, with everything you need!"
Great location for Buxton or bakewell. Lovely pubs in the village! Recommend!!
"Lovely cottage in a ideal position to visit many areas in the Peak District."
The cottage was very clean and very inviting to come back to after a long day walking. Highly recommended.
"Beautiful cottage in the perfect location."
Very comfortable, everything you need home from home. Comfortable beds and very very clean. Owners very ice and accommodating. Would highly recommend and will definitely return...
"We had such a nice time at this lovely cottage."
It is clean, modern and had everything you need during your stay. A nice bottle of wine waiting for us which was a lovely thought. Parking was straight outside which made life easy too. It is perfectly situated for everywhere I wanted to be, Padley Gorge, Castleton, Chatsworth House, Hathersage to name a few, just a few minutes drive away. Easy short walk to the shops and 2 chip shops that are in this lovely village. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.
"The cottage was great."
Extremely clean and really well equipped, the kitchen was great and had everything we could have needed. The owners were extremely helpful and had some very good recommendations and knew the area well. They left a bottle of wine as a welcome which was a lovely touch The village itself has everything you need too, few pubs, cafes, bakery and shop. We'd never been to the peak district before so we were really impressed and Bakewell and Castleton were only a short drive away too so it made for a very good base for our long weekend! We would love to come back again.
"1A Market Street, Tideswell is very comfortable, well located, very well equipped and was impressively clean on our arrival."
We loved the location and the owner is extemely helpful so we will very much want to return.We can highly recommend this property for a Peak District stay.
"The cottage was clean and comfortable and provided everything we need for a weekend away with friends."
"Lovely cosy cottage in the centre of Tideswell."
Close to a couple of pubs that do food and right in the middle of walking country. A lovely bolthole.
"Fantastic property in a gorgeous location."
We will definitely visit again. Such a lovely, cosy & characterful property, it felt incredibly homely & comfortable.
"Lovely accommodation in an excellent setting ."
Easy access to iconic walks straight outside the door. Very friendly helpful owner . Highly recommended.
"The cottage was immaculately clean and the owner was incredibly helpful, friendly and hospitable."
We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our wedding anniversary there and would certainly return. Tideswell is delightful, we did some beautiful walks straight from the village and ate well at the George (excellent vegan curry), The Merchant's Yard for a proper celebration and The Anchor on Sunday evening. Don't miss the Horse and Jockey for a good pint of real ale.
"Lovely place to stay in the heart of the village, everything on the doorstep"
"This is an excellent house in a beautiful village in one of the most spectacular places in England."
"This cottage is very central to the Dales, we had beautiful walks without even taking the car out."
There is everything you need in Tideswell, 3 pubs to choose from, and one in neighbouring Litton which we revisited lots, a Co-op, fish & chip shops, all good. This Cottage is very comfortable, home from home. We just wish the traffic from Suffolk was easier for travelling to and from Derbyshire!
"This is a beautifully kept cottage, the kitchen is especially nice."
The living room is small and would struggle to fit four adults comfortably but if you’re using it as a base to be out and about then it’s perfect. The owners have left lots of items for you including binoculars and a wooden walking stick if required. Only thing I think to mention is if you are two people staying but require separate rooms, then make this known when booking. We arrived to find the second bedroom was not made up as it was assumed a two person booking was a couple (we were but that’s besides the point). I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property to those looking for a Peak District Base for a few days.
"A particularly clean & well-appointed cottage, which made up for the very disappointing experience we had with the last Sykes cottage in Wales."
"A beautiful and well appointed cottage."
Lovely hosts. It is always lovely to stay in a place that feels homely without notices anywhere telling you how things work or what not to do. Thank you.
"A lovely, well equipped and cleanly holiday cottage."
Perfect for our needs and would come back.
"The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the peak district."
The cottage was cosy and had all the facilities we needed including a modern kitchen with everything required and a modern bathroom. We really enjoyed walks from the cottage around Tideswell and the central location in the Peak District. The owners were really friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
"We found this cottage very comfortable, very warm and homely."
A very good location for us with a co-op, pubs, and most importantly lovely walks which we mostly did from the cottage with our border collie. The owner was very kind to leave us a bottle of wine, and tea and coffee etc for us until we could get to the shops.
"The cottage was really cozy and nicely decorated."
We could not have asked a better place to spend our mini holiday. We enjoyed the village as well. Really good walking paths and connections to other sights.
"We had a lovely time staying at the cottage."
The village is fab and the people we met there were very friendly. The cottage is small but very cleverly arranged and worked very well for three of us. It was spotlessly clean and very warm. Although we didn't meet the owners in person, they were extremely helpful and welcoming. Would recommend.
"Great cottage for our long weekend; everything we needed in the kitchen; very clean, lots of free parking, friendly pubs and a good base for exploring the area; Thank you."
"We had a great week-end here."
A lovely stone cottage, modernised and great interior. Could not fault a thing. Beds very comfortable. A great area to explore the Peaks with walks from the door.
"We had a wonderful time at 1a Market Square."
We loved the cottage which was very warm and cosy and the owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. We also liked Tideswell very much and will definitely be back.
"Lovely hosts who greeted us and we were able to get into the cottage before check in time."
Clean, tidy and welcoming. Good location for walks and local pubs.
"There were a few things that could have helped: the small bedroom really was very small, no bedside light, which was a real minus."
One small bath towel not quite enough. There was no information on how the microwave and dishwasher worked. I know these are small things..... We did enjoy our visit and glad to have found a replacement after Bluebell Cottage being cancelled at the last minute!
"This was a lovely well positioned cottage in a lovely village."
Everything you could think of was provided-even dishwasher tablets! A bottle of wine on arrival was much appreciated. We would highly recommend.
"Location sleep quality friendly welcome and the owners very nice, over all fab"
"So impressed by this little place!"
The cottage was spacious yet cosy and absolutely spotless, we felt right at home and didn't want to leave! The whole process from booking, to contacting the owners, to arrival and departure was so easy. We'll definitely be back but for longer next time!
"The environment and the cottage"
"The cottage was very conveniently set in the centre of Tideswell, walking distance from the cafes, pubs and shops."
The cottage was newly, and beautifully, renovated and the owners extremely kind and thoughtful. The area is beautiful, with fabulous walks within a short drive (nice walks also from the house itself) and lots of places of historical and geographical interest nearby.
"We had a lovely time and were really lucky to arrive at the end of Tideswell's 'Wake's Week'."
We joined a torchlight procession that passed the cottage on Saturday night. The owners were vey friendly and explained everything we needed to know on the telephone and even left a bottle of Shiraz to welcome us. The cottage was a great base for visiting Buxton Castleton, Bakewell and Matlock. The kitchen was very swish and we enjoyed using the outdoor seating area overlooking the Market Square.
"Entry was difficult because no emails had been answered and we had to phone the company when we arrived."
Not a good start. We feel that for £320 a night for 4 people, we should have had a luxury stay. There was no milk or welcome food pack (eg small loaf, jam, butter, milk to make a small breakfast). The website states entry after 3am and leave before 10am (very early for 4 people with one bathroom on a Sunday!) - not long enough considering the price paid. The shower door and other areas were not very clean and there were no toiletries in the shower area except a bottle of hand washing liquid near the sink and an empty can of air freshener! We had to use that to shower because we thought there would at least be shower gel. There was one hand towel between 4 people! Although the cottage was in a lovely position, for the price charged we expected more luxuries. If we wanted cheap and cheerful, we could have booked that type of accommodation and it would have included a breakfast and probably more facilities.

We can't thank the owners enough for a lovely stay and will definitely be booking again soon. Also recommend the star inn for Sunday dinner, to die for!! 1 min walk, other pubs, shops, cute cafes, chip shop , church just round corner, highly recommend this rental and location!!
