Description

This delightful, spacious, mid-terraced holiday cottage is warm, cosy and beautifully presented with great finishing touches. It sits in a prime location within the Peak District National Park in the centre of Tideswell, a large village which makes an excellent base being home to traditional pubs, coffee shops, delicatessens and a local supermarket. For outdoor enthusiasts there are excellent walks direct from the door through Tideswell Dale, leading out onto the Monsal Trail, which has old railway tunnels, and being traffic free is also perfect for easy cycling and horse riding. Many surrounding pretty Peak District villages and towns such as the historic plague village of Eyam, Bakewell famous for its pudding, and the spa town of Buxton can all be reached in around a 15 minute drive, as can the magnificent historic houses of Chatsworth Estate and medieval Haddon Hall. There is climbing available at the ever popular Stanage Edge, which is around 30 minutes away, and watersports at the beautiful Carsington Water, which can be reached in around 45 minutes. Finally, for those thrill seekers, you can take a cable car ride from Matlock Bath and visit The Heights of Abraham, 30 minutes, or UK’s premier theme park Alton Towers, 45 minutes. Golf nearby. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 75 yards.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
