Bluebell Cottage - Tideswell, Derbyshire, The Peak District, England - Sleeps 8

Bluebell Cottage

Bluebell Cottage sleeps eight guests - Formerly a pub, the cottage still provides a warm welcome and is a fantastic retreat for families and friends …

One of Tideswell's oldest properties, Bluebell Cottage dates as far back as the early 18th Century and was once a busy village pub in its former life. Ideally placed in an unrivaled position, the cottage sits in a peaceful side street in the very heart of the village and is within a short stroll of the lovely shops, pubs and tearooms where you can sample superb local produce. A convenient base which is also ideal for walkers with a public footpath passing the cottage door leading you out into glorious rolling Derbyshire countryside.

Bluebell has been lovingly restored and refurbished to a high standard for modern living while keeping the original stone and wood structures and beams with original wooden nails. It is a bright spacious character cottage which is particularly suited to families or friends getting together and has been used for many special birthday and other celebrations. Book it together with Butterfield Cottage, just a five minute walk away to cater for groups of up to fourteen guests.

It is great for those who enjoy walking, culture and outdoor pursuits and for fishing and climbing holidays. Lying at the heart of the National Park it provides a perfect base for exploring the plethora of Peak District attractions.

The towns of Bakewell and Buxton are within easy reach along with Chatsworth House and Alton Towers is only a forty five minute drive. Many episodes of Peak Practice have been filmed in this area and when you see its beauty you can understand why!
