Booked both the Cottage and Barn in December for a Family get together. Firstly we had a great welcome from the owner who spent time with us and give us the 'local knowledge' tips.
The two cottages (one is called The Barn, the other Cottage- not the greatest of names!) are very different. The Barn is more recently refurbished and is decked out in boutique hotel style and very spacious with an upstairs galley over looking a private courtyard. The bedrooms are very separate -one upstairs and one downstairs which was helpful for our older members of the party! The kitchen is large and very well appointed with washing machine etc.
The Cottage is very different being styled as a more traditional cottage with beamed ceiling, wood burning stove (which was brill) and a small kitchen.Having rented both cottages for our large family gathering meant that we kept spending time in both cottages since they are positioned right next door to each other.
Both cottages were exceptionally clean, warm and welcoming.
The location is fantastic - right in the centre of the village of Tideswell and very private.Tideswell is in the centre of the National Park so is ideal to get to just about everything in the peaks.
We booked the cottages on the recommendations of friends who had also stayed at the Cottage.
The owners went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. We borrowed bikes from them (and they would not take any money) and the owners daughter even baby sat for us on one evening!
Overall I would highly recommend both cottages with my favourite the Barn.
