About The Wriggly Tin

Wriggly Tin is as unique as its name and provides a comfy spacious holiday retreat for large groups of up to nine guests within the Peak District's stunning national park. Beautifully blending quirky character with stylish furnishings, what was once the Wriggly Tin Cafe, has now been cleverly transformed to provide self-catering of a high standard.

Enjoy an abundance of traditional features with vaulted ceilings providing a lovely sense of space, a log burner for cosy nights in and solid wood and stone floors with under floor heating making it cosy under foot. There is also ample outside living space for when the sun shines with plentiful outside seating allowing everyone to BBQ, alfresco dine and soak up the fabulous views. With a choice of patio's there is always a peaceful spot to enjoy a quiet moment with a good book and a lawn area for relaxing.

Conveniently located, Wriggly Tin is perfectly sandwiched between the market town of Bakewell and the spa town of Buxton with an abundance of attractions within easy reach and opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. The cottage sits in the pretty village of Millers Dale, with a pub serving real ale within walking distance.

There are numerous walks and cycle rides directly from the front door including the Monsal Trail which passes close to the cottage, and provides over eight miles of traffic free enjoyment. The surrounding area also offers rock climbing and abseiling.

Perfect for large groups of friends or families, Wriggly Tin sits in a simply stunning position and is surrounded by peace and tranquility with all the right ingredients to relax and unwind in comfort and style.
