Property code: OC-H27447

The pretty and distinctly Derbyshire village of Tideswell sits in the heart of the White Peak, an area known for its dramatic scenery; cut among limestone, it is in an area of outstanding beauty. The village itself was built in the 14th century, and boasts great local pubs, two restaurants, cafes, fish and chip shops, and sandwich shops, as well as a butcher, baker and greengrocer. It is surrounded by must-visit towns. There are excellent walking routes with rugged peaks to the north, gentle hills and dales to the south and Millers Dale just 4 miles outside the village. Eyam, with its eery and fascinating history of being “The Plague Village” sits just 5 miles to the East of Tideswell. Chatsworth House, Mam Tor and Castleton are both within 11 miles and the popular spa town of Buxton is an 8 mile trip.

Once inside the cottage you will soon notice the modern and stylish interior whilst still having features and decor that compliments the age and style of the property. Step into the impressive hallway which leads you into the living room, a light, open and stunning space with an open fire making it perfect for a cosy evening in after exploring the peaks. Down the hallway there is a dining room, a large and well-equipped space that has a wooden dining table that looks out onto the garden, a wood burner, and a Victorian dresser. The kitchen sits just off from this room and is well equipped with a large range cooker and everything required to cook up a feast. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, 1 king-size, 1 super-king-size zip-and-link which can be made up as two singles if required, and 1 single. A family bathroom completes the first floor. Each room has a unique feel and makes use of great colour splashes. Antiques blended with beautiful paint colours and homely touches make this cottage a comfortable, unique, and invigorating space to enjoy.

Outside there is a private, enclosed garden with lovely views back over the town, where you can find a dining area and a BBQ for alfresco dining. Perfect for warm summer evenings, or to start your day with your favourite morning brew.

An amazing home, and we had a fantastic Christmas there. Everything we needed was there, plus some extra - the additional roasting trays and decorations were a great touch. The house is in a great location for exploring the Peaks, and the village has very good amenities, too.

Owner Response: Thank you for your feedback. There was an issue with the shower which has now been resolved. Hide

We absolutely love this place. Everything was perfect. It has been a very varied week: Mam Tor, Neighbourhood walks, Bakewell, Buxton, Manchester/football match. Best dinner - The Swan in Kettleshulme (but all the local places were great too!). We would definitely like to come again. Thank you for the wine and mild. We felt like home - but away.

A beautiful house, lovely furniture and furnishings, very well equipped. Central village location with walks right from the door. When I first walked into Handel House I immediately felt at home, it has a special atmosphere and I would recommend a stay here.
