Church House is an utterly wonderful conversion of a little church to create what must be one of the best holiday retreats in the Peak District. Set in the heart of the picturesque village of Tideswell it provides lots of spacious, quality accommodation with fantastic features like the tall ceilings, arched windows and glass staircase. Combine this with the quality decoration, furnishing and drapes to make a really incredible place.
Tideswell as a village is just as good. It's a 'proper' village with lots of little shops, three pubs, cafes, a restaurant and even a 'chippy'. Wander down the lane into the centre and feel part of local life. Explore the quiet alleyways, set off along the numerous footpaths into the surrounding countryside or take your bikes across the tops on one of the fantastic trails.
With even wider horizons there are lots more holiday attractions. It's got to be Chatsworth House, Bakewell's Monday market and Victorian Buxton. But some of our local favourites include Monsal Dale's dramatic gorge, Calver Edge's breathtaking views, Peak Rail's steam trains, Crich's tramway and Carsington's wild watersports. After a hard day have the last glass of an evening in the peace and quiet of the landscaped garden!
An entrance hall with an original church pew and storage for coats and boots. A superb open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area with leaded windows, oak floor, dramatic lighting and super pictures. The attractive lounge has comfortable leather sofas, Smart T.V., Blu-ray, Freeview, CD and Wi-Fi. The dining area has a lovely oak dining suite. The quality kitchen with its slate flagged floor, has extensive units, granite topped island, range cooker with halogen hob and double oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The adjoining utility room has a second fridge and automatic washer/dryer. There is also a children's den with sofa bed (that can accommodate two additional guests charged at £25 per person per booking), T.V., Freeview and Play Station. The feature glass staircase leads to a magnificent master bedroom with wonderful windows and drapes, king-size bed and an en-suite shower room with W.C.

"Second time of staying. We love it. A home from home. This time we brought our kids to celebrate our Pearl Anniversary. We were lucky with the weather but would have been happy to spend the day confined to Barracks ! Recommend Chatsworth House-expensive but worth it. Also hire bikes at Parsley Hay and cycle to Tissington- such fun."

"Stayed for one week for a family of 6 from different areas across England. House is in a fantastic location, perfectly placed for walking and exploring. So many fantastic pubs for food, the anchor, Tideswell, The Chequers, Froggatt amongst a few. Easy access to Buxton, Bakewell and Chatsworth. The village of Tideswell is really welcoming but unfortunately most shops had shut for a post Christmas break which was a shame. Thank you for a warm stay."
