Description

Thorncliffe Cottage is a wonderfully traditional stone built, mid terraced property which can be found on a quiet lane in the popular Peak District village of Tideswell. Set within the heart of the National Park, this light, bright and airy cottage is well-furnished and equipped with thoughtful extras. Built over four floors it benefits from a superb wood burning stove in the living room making for warm and cosy winter evenings. The split level patio to the rear of the property offers lovely views, catches the sun throughout the day and is fully enclosed for perfect, relaxing, warm summer months.
Tideswell itself is a bustling village made up of narrow alleys, lanes and roads set around character squares. Best known as home to the Cathedral of the Peak, it has a thriving range of local shops and amenities including a selection of good, local, pet friendly food serving pubs. Perfectly suited to lovers of the great outdoors, a selection of walking trails are available to take you in and around the village and local area, and there is fishing and golf nearby. The traffic free Monsal Trail, which runs from Bakewell to Buxton, can be reached through Tideswell Dale (cycle hire is available a 10-minute drive away), and both the Pennine Way and Limestone Way are nearby. The spa town of Buxton and market town of Bakewell are both around a 15-minute drive, as are a selection of other Peak District towns and villages such as Eyam, Castleton and Hathersage. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall can be reached in under half an hour, and Ashbourne and Alton Towers in under an hour. Shop 350 yards, pub and restaurant 175 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.
