  • "What a beautiful cottage and so well equipped."

    It really had everything you could possibly need. Really comfortable beds, lots of cooking utensils, lovely hot showers and is in the perfect location to see the Peak District with fabulous walks right on your doorstep.

  • "Wonderful stay in Kempshill cottage ."

    The cottage is located in Tideswell a lovely quiet centrally located village to visit anywhere in the Peak District. The cottage was clean with loads of hot water and a very well equipped kitchen . It easily accommodated my family of 3 adult children and ourselves. The beds were extremely comfortable and the Smart TV was appreciated rather than the standard freeview. We spent many evenings in the Star Pub , excellent food and very friendly. I would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage, very nice furnishings which made for a nice weeks stay."

    Very clean, although could do with some new towels. Shame there isn’t more outside space, although this is stated in the description. Nice village with good amenities. Lots to do locally. Would definitely recommend & would stay again.

    We all enjoyed our stay, felt safe as cottage very clean. Village lovely and locals very welcoming. Only one thing the TV was a little small for viewing Britain’s got talent .. but that’s very minor! Hopefully we will be visiting again soon.

  • "This is a beautiful cottage, well maintained and has everything you need."

    The property was cleaned to an exceptional standard and whilst we are in the midst of Covid19 that cleanliness made us feel very safe. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking at home if the pubs are shut. With two wonderful log burners for cosy winter evenings and a full central heating system there is no chance of being cold in this property! In a lovely location and so quiet, very little passing traffic. Perfect base for walking the beautiful peak district. We had a perfect week relaxing, and recharging our batteries and walking and enjoying the local pubs and cafes. Would definately recommend and just deciding when to go back.

  • "A lovely house that, despite its age, weathered the torrential rains of a violent storm with flying colours."

    Some occupants will have to remember to stoop at the sides of the master bedroom and on the step down to the dining room.

    Just some suggestions - could do with a bath mat in the downstairs, maybe a vacuum cleaner and some of the window locks were quite fiddly

    There was everything we needed to settle in, and shops close by for extra provisions. The location is lovely for walks, and the log fire perfect for those long dark winter evenings. Cottage very well equipped in every way and a lovely location for a family Christmas away from home.

    It is very comfortable and cosy and far better equipped than many rentals. The location and the area are lovely too. We would happily return to this cottage.

  • "Beautiful house which was resourced with everything you an think of ."

    Set in a beautiful place too. Would definately use again. Although there was an outside space at the back of the cottage with a small decking area we did find that we missed a garden at some points in the week - maybe because the weather was superb so it would probably not even have been noticed later on in the year. A great holiday spent .

  • "Very nice cottage, well decorated with a comfortable, homely feel."

    Had some contact with the owner who was very friendly. The entry to the master bedroom at the top of the staircase is not easy for people who are unsteady on their feet, so we slept in the second bedroom which was great. Very nice location with great views across Tideswell church.

  • "Lovely cottage in a nice little village."

    Ideal location for visiting Buxton and all areas of the Peak District. The kitchen was well equipped apart from a couple of things - there was no potato masher and only 2 medium pans and a very small one. Not really enough for a family. Just thought that was worth a mention, but in no way affected the enjoyment of our holiday. Would be happy to recommend the cottage to anyone. All in all a lovely long weekend break. *********************************************Owner Response************************************* Thank you very much for your lovely feeedback. Just wanted to point out that the Potato Masher is in the bottom drawer, (as it does not fit in the top drawer ) along with 2 further saucepans. I am glad that you had a lovely time in our cottage.

  • "Wonderful cottage, very comfortable and so user friendly (no spending ages working out how to use cooker/heating etc)."

    You can tell it's a much loved home as well as a rental cottage. Great walking from the door. We were lucky & even though it was November we had great weather but if not there's still plenty to do in Derbyshire. There's no negatives to Kempsill Cottage, we were a party of 5 lady friends & all felt the same way...... Sad to leave!
