The village of Tideswell stands in the heart of the Peak District National Park. It has pubs, a restaurant, cafes, fish and chip shops, and sandwich shops and is surrounded by must-visit towns. Tideswell is well known for its popular Food Festival, which takes place every May. It features a wide variety of food from local suppliers, as well as stalls, cookery demonstrations and entertainment. There is excellent walking with rugged peaks to the north, gentle hills and dales to the south and Millers Dale just outside the village. Mam Tor and Castleton are only a few miles away and the popular spa town of Buxton is within a short driving distance.

Having just returned from Owl Cottage we all had a great time, the cottage has a lovely cosy feel to it and it was almost a daily game we played to see if there was anything that Bernard and Claire hadn't provided as it was so well equipped.
