The cottage was warm and welcoming. The delightful living area on the first floor was very comfortable, and there was plenty of light. We liked Tideswell a lot, it was quiet but with some excellent places to eat and buy provisions.

The cottage was located in the middle of town with good parking available and easy access to the shops. Tideswell is a quaint town with easy access to surrounding areas. There is a good fish and chips shop, nice pubs and a great bakery. It was close to Buxton where you can get the train to Manchester.

The cottage was amazing. We were 6 adults and two children and we found the cottage spacious and comfortable with plenty of seating for everyone. Everywhere was really clean and it had a lovely homely feel to it. It had everything you could possibly need in the kitchen etc. The cottage was close to all local amenities and was easy to find. We all had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.

It was great to be able to go on lovely walks nearby (two were actually from the cottage - 12 kilometres each). Tideswell is a gorgeous village with amazing amenities for its small size, so we were able to pop out to fetch provisions within five minutes, go for a drink or have meals out. Everyone in the village was very friendly!

The upstairs living/kitchen/WC and bedroom/bathroom are excellent - fresh and modern. Little welcome pack appreciated - dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, cleaning pad. Stoneycroft is well located, about a 3 minute walk from the village centre, shops, and pubs. The Star Inn is only a minute's walk and serves fab food! Away from the main road Tideswell is centrally situated within easy reach of the whole Peak District.
Mrs Gilman
May 2011
The location was really good with a lovely village atmosphere and incredible heritage - not over run with gift shops and cafes. A very interesting Church (Cathedral of the Peak), excellent shops for pies, meat, fresh vegetables (looked really fresh) and also a Co-op. A choice of pubs and places to eat. All within walking distance from the accommodation. Features in the 2011 The Peak District, 'Welcome' magazine as one of the 6 villages to be used by BBC TV'. 'Tideswell School of Food is the centre of Taste Tideswell' with Sarah Beany.

Spacious but quirky cottage with every amenity. Very well presented. Tideswell is a lovely village and there are shops to cater for all your needs, everyone is very friendly. Great base to explore the Peak Dustrict. Perhaps not suitable for toddlers given the upside down arrangement and steepish steps to garden. There is a stairgate however. Bedrooms are small and we just managed to fit a travel cot into the upstairs double bedroom. Remember to pack a hairdryer...I forgot mine!
Babette O
May 2015
We stayed here with family ranging in age from 25 to 76. We were all delighted with the amenities and the overall excellent presentation and cleanliness of the place. It truly is home from home. There is next to no activity in Tideswell so we found ourselves driving out nearly every day. Lots of walks in the area (but only one we could find in the village). The only spoiler for us was the awful weather but that was of course completely out of the owner's control.
September 2014
Stayed at stoneycroft with family. This is an excellent cottage well equipped with all the comforts of home, plenty of room for eight adults. The cupboard full of condiments is always a bonus, it would be a good idea to make this known, it would save bringing along all those incidentals from home. The cottage is a great location for walking straight from the door and all the village amenities close by.
October 2013
Had a lovely holiday even though it was very wet. Back exit flooded and had to access utility room from side gate. although this was no great hardship. I think we left place cleaner than it was on arrival but otherwise could not fault the equipment supplied. Kitchen better equipped than at home!!!
February 2010
Have stayed in many cottages. This was by far the best. spacious, clean and wel equipped. Great walks even in the snow! Village shop convenient and well stocked.
