Swift Cottage, Peak District Holiday Home

Tideswell, Derbyshire


Swift Cottage, once part of the Duke of Devonshire's manor, is a 200 year old, warm and homely, stone-built cottage situated in a prime location on the edge of the village of Tideswell, the 'Cathedral of the Peak'. 'Townhead', as the area is locally known, is a haven of tranquillity, surrounded by open countryside yet just a few minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of the vibrant village centre, with all its amenities. One of four such properties adjoined in an isolated southerly-facing terrace, it benefits from all day sunshine and glorious views over the dale.

The cottage is family owned and managed to high standards by Tideswell residents, offering clean and comfortable accommodation at competitive prices.

It provides everything you'll need for recuperating after a hard day in the great outdoors, sunbathing when the weather is fine or relaxing with your feet up in front of the cosy log burning stove.

General Details

To the front of the property is a spacious, enclosed paved patio area with scenic views over the dale, with steps leading down to the lane through the cottage garden. The patio is equipped with quality teak furniture for dining out and relaxing in during warm weather, watching the swifts after which the cottage is named darting about at breakneck speed through the dale as you sit back with a cool drink.

Behind the cottage is a paved, elevated patio with a shed suitable for mountain bike/cycle storage. Both front and rear patio areas benefit from all day sun and are equipped with quality hardwood tables and umbrellas, chairs, benches and sun loungers. The front patio with its scenic views is perfect for dining out and barbecues, and wood burning chimineas are available.

We operate a policy of continuous improvement to the cottage, while always seeking to retain its original character. Electrical appliances and all carpets, furniture and beds are recently purchased and good quality. We want you to enjoy your stay at Swift Cottage and leave wanting to come back again.
