Markeygate Barn can be found set around a secluded courtyard in the centre of the thriving Peak District village of Tideswell. Semi-detached and dating back to the 17th-century, the thick limestone walls make it warm and cosy all year round, and exposed stone, beams and a feature fireplace give it plenty of character. Located next to the owner’s home, Markeygate Barn has two bedrooms, of which one is on the ground floor, and both benefitting from an en-suite. Outside there is shared access to seating areas in the pretty courtyard which becomes a gorgeous suntrap in the summer months, as well as outdoor table tennis.
Tideswell is a large village, and being in the centre means that pretty much everything you need is right on the doorstep. Within easy walking distance you’ll find a selection of pubs serving good food, coffee shops, tea rooms, a mini supermarket, bakers and butchers. In addition, a good selection of walks and cycle routes radiate from the area meaning you can really give your car a rest.
Beyond Tideswell, even more countryside delights and the spectacular scenery of the Peak District National Park are easily accessible. Within 15 minutes there is the ever popular market town of Bakewell and neighbouring Baslow, Chatsworth House, the spa town of Buxton, the fascinating plague village of Eyam and beautiful Castleton. Within 30 minutes you have Dove Dale, Matlock, Chesterfield and Edale which is the start/end of the Pennine Way. You really do have the opportunity to do as much or as little as you like.

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.
