A large, thriving, village set in the limestone hills near Buxton and Bakewell, with many old picturesque buildings and the remarkable St John the Baptist church, known as 'The Cathedral of the Peak' is an impressive sight and well worth a visit.

The following comments are taken straight from the guestbook we keep for The Chairmakers Cottage. Verbatim.
Nice little cottage in a lovely village with good facilities.
A beautifully furnished cottage, welcoming with food and wine treats, comfortable beds, outdoor space very neat and clean, spotless bathrooms, dog made very welcome too with fleeces and dog towel provided. Local area and walking perfect for the weekend. We had a very relaxing stay - thank you
The cottage is beautifully appointed and has everything you could possibly want. The obvious craftsmanship that has gone into the cottages re-fit makes it a very special place to stay.
We had a lovely stay at this beautiful cottage. The decor is stunning and everything feels so high end. The location is perfect for beautiful walks and we had a fab meal at Sal’s Italian. Thoroughly recommended for a peaceful and relaxing break. Thanks!
We stayed as a group of four friends and had a great time. The cottage was beautiful, lovely decor throughout and had everything we needed and more! The beds were huge and very comfy. The garden was also a real sun trap and had clean, comfortable garden furniture (something that I never seem to find at other air bnbs). The village was quiet and peaceful but had plenty of food options, we ate at the local Italian that was recommended by the host and it was fab. All four of us said we can’t wait to come back again, if you are thinking of booking this place you won’t regret it!
Beautiful cottage with so many unique features. Located on the main road through Tideswell, but it's extremely quiet at night. Rear garden space is a real sun trap in the evening, so it was lovely when returning from long walks, of which there were many right from the door. Sal's Italian and High Nelly's are definitely worth a visit as well as the local fish and chip shop. I can't recommend this property enough, it's stunning inside and has everything you need, plus more!
Excellent stay, a very well decorated home with perfect amenities. Possibly the best Airbnb I stayed at!!
The Chairmaker's cottage has outstanding decor & is tastefully presented. The fixtures and fittings are equally bespoke and the entire place is spotlessly clean. It is a credit to the owners. The incessant rain and a costly car breakdown were our only issues! But we were pleased to remain indoors savouring the ambience of this beautiful cottage. We left it as we found it - pristine!
We would like to say a very big thank you, we were wowed by the cottage as soon as we walked in. We have stayed in many holiday cottages before and this was the best. Our stay here was very comfortable and homely, we are looking forward to coming back. Thanks for the lovely treats.
If you have comments you'd like to leave then please get in touch. We love to hear all feedback - good or bad.
From the cottage you are able to follow a couple of routes taking you to Miller's Dale, heading out of the village toward Litton you can take the first right onto Richard Lane which leads you on a scenic walk via a country lane ending up at Millers Dale. Here you can stop at the cafe and have a well earned rest or continue and pick up the Monsal Trail to make it a longer walk. Or another route is heading out of the village towards Litton but pass the turning for this village and carry on until Tideswell Dale car park, this route takes you through beautiful Tideswell Dale, past historic Litton Mill and then on to the traffic-free Monsal Trail. From there you head to the pretty hamlet of Miller's Dale on the River Wye, with a lovely pub at the halfway point for a break if needed. Or why not try Litton Dale - head into Litton and through the village across the fields will lead to the stunning Litton Dale, with the eye-catching Peter's Stone, (or Gibbet's Rock) at the end of the walk is a great cafe to stop and recharge.
Bakewell is the largest town within the Peak District National Park and is a hub of activity. Market day is on a Monday and as well as a large range of stalls there is also an agricultural market which is definitely worth a look around as it offers a great insight todays farming community. The town also hosts a craft and gift fair every weekend in Brigade town hall. The Bakewell Old House Museum occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the towns past and is very interesting and informative with lots to appeal to all ages. Obviously no trip to Bakewell would be complete without sampling an original Bakewell pudding. The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop claims to have the old the original recipe and still makes the puddings by hand from the secret recipe.
No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth House. At Chatsworth there is something to do for every member of the family. The Farmyard and Adventure playground is a brilliant day out for children of all ages - with animal handling, milking demonstrations and daily activities, plus a woodland adventure playground with slides, trampolines and more! Then there is obviously the house itself, steeped with history it’s one of Britain’s greatest stately homes and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The gardens are equally as impressive as the house, over 100 acres and as well and the beautiful flowers and plants, there are giant water features and sculptures dotted around.
Baslow, Curbar and Froggatt Edges are only a short drive away and offer a spectacular walking route where you can view both the Dark and White Peaks. These three gritstone edges are part an almost continuous line of cliffs running from Stanage Edge down to Birchen Edge at the southern end. These Edges once famous for millstones, are now known as great places to rock climb. There over 200 rock-climbing routes on Curbar Edge alone, making the edges a mecca for walkers and climbers alike. For walkers Baslow Edge also offers interesting features including a memorial to the Duke of Wellington, a giant rock called the Eagle Stone which in years gone by the young men of Baslow used it to show off their prowess and fitness for marriage by climbing to the top and even some resident Highland cows. There are many different routes, some circular, some linear around the edges and also different staring/finishing points. A nice circular route which also includes walking along the river Derwent.
The Peak District has a great opportunity to explore the wonders of the mysterious 4 caves dotted around the pretty village of Castleton. There is Blue John Cavern lying below MamTor and approached via the very steep Winnats Pass, part natural and part mined it features natural chambers and veins of Blue John. There are numerous steps to reach the vast chambers so do be prepared. Treak Cliff Caven is higher up the old Mam Tor road, originally a lead mine but now mines Blue John. Speedwell cavern is at the foot of Winnats Pass, several natural chambers and underground canal which is the main centrepiece of the visit. Take a boat down to the bottomless pit, a natural filled cavern. Lastly is Peak Cavern this is the only wholly natural cave of all 4, known to local's as The Devil's Arse, an impressive entrance sitting under the equally impressive Peveril Castle, this cavern is wide and very spacious. Castleton village itself is a pretty and extremely popular village to explore, throughout the year, especially near to Christmas when it attracts many visitors to see the lights. With plenty of shops you are even able to buy various pieces of the mined Blue John Stone.
