Cottage lovely, but oh so noisy location!

This immaculate and otherwise comfy cottage would be lovely, but is based on the main road through Tideswell, and at a bottleneck on that main road. If you're prepared for almost constant traffic (including trucks, lorries and buses) stopping and then accellerating right outside living room window, that's fine. But it came as a bit of a shock to us and we've since found out the village is a known rat run outside of winter. Also next door neighbour's dogs howl at night. One day of our stay he played a rock CD at 4.30am at full volume. Owner was good and got police round, but not what you expect to have to deal with on holiday. Such a shame because apart from the awful road and the neighbour this would be a great and good value holiday cottage. We would consider staying in Tideswell again, but not on the main road.


Cosy, comfortable and welcoming

The cottage was well equipped and in a good location for walks and attractions. It had all the comforts of your own home. The bedrooms were a good size though the kids room overlooked a busy road. A nice shower room and lovely kitchen with washing machine. Would certainly recommend the cottage for a short stay. Directions could have been a little clearer as to the exact location of the cottage.

Lovely stay

Our stay at the Exchange Cottage was heavenly. It had everything we needed, from a fully equipped kitchen to board games and a fireplace. The service was lovely as well. Thanks for everything!


Excellent, well equipped cottage

Lovely cottage in the heart of the village. Cafe next door with gorgeous ice cream. Fish and chip shop nearby. Well equipped with everything you need. Only downside was no wifi and the shower head needed cleaning/descaling. Wouldn't stop me staying there again though. Excellent base for exploring the Peak District.


If you want a good nights sleep - Avoid !

The Cottage itself and facilities are very good.
However ......... the situation of the property is far from ideal.
To start with it is on the main road through Tideswell, for a small village it is very noisy with speeding cars a huge lorries passing through right outside the window.
Then !!!! the icing on the cake ! there is a very noisy, rowdy neighbor living right next door. You can quite plainly hear them walking up and down their stairs from the master bedroom in Exchange Cottage, Its like they're in the room. Thumping around on the floors from next door, conversations and shouting are quite clearly audible, as is loud music. Talking to the locals. this person is well known for being a nuisance,
We were kept up until 2am on our Friday and 4am on the Saturday/Sunday morning.
Definately not recomended, avoid at all costs if you want peace !

Exchange Cottage was perfect for our requirements. It is very warm and comfortable after cold January days exploring the surrounding Derbyshire Dales. The cottage is well located near the centre of Tideswell, and within walking distance of Tideswell Dale, Cressbrook Dale, Millers Dale and Monks Dale. All beautiful and each with its own distinct character. We would love to come back to Exchange Cottage in each season to see the dales change through the year. Brilliant holiday.
