Quality Self Catering in the Heart of the Peak District

Ashdown Cottage provides no smoking accommodation in the centre of the Peak District village of Tideswell.

It’s within a few minutes level walking access to local amenities including a bakery, butchers, green grocers, Co-op general store, post office, chemist, deli and several pubs and coffee shops.

There are many wonderful walking trails from the village so you can easily leave the car outside the cottage for the duration of your holiday. If you really want to cut your carbon footprint Tideswell is served by buses from Sheffield, Chesterfield, Bakewell, Buxton and Castleton. Local buses can also take you to great walking opportunities, lovely villages and stately homes.

About the cottage… 

The accommodation consists of a well equipped kitchen-diner, cosy sitting room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Close by is a quiet sitting area with a lock up shed for bikes etc. The large bedroom is spacious with a double bed and the second bedroom can be configured as a single or twin. A cot can be provided on request. Crisp cotton bed linen and towels are provided and heating and electric costs are included in the rental charge. We regret we are currently unable to accept pets. The cottage is available for whole weeks or for shorter breaks of 3 nights ( Friday to Sunday) or 4 nights ( Monday to Thursday ).

If you would like to stay for any other number of nights please call, we never like to say no!  There is ample on and off street parking and we have installed BT Broadband and offer free wireless internet access to all our visitors.
