About Nikki and John Turton

Bringing up a family, working in Engineering and Mid Life Career Coaching, we decided on a complete change discovering a new phase in our lives after our sons grew up and left home.

We enjoy village life, old properties and walking in beautiful surroundings with our golden retriever. Now we also have more time to spend with wider family, visit historic places and theatres and enjoy volunteering in the local community of Tideswell.

We are available to help with anything you might wish to know both before and during your stay.

Nikki and John Turton purchased this cottage in 2015

Visiting and holidaying in the area for over 35 years with our family, friends and dogs, we were delighted when we discovered this characterful property, The Corner House in Tideswell. Old beams, log fire,stone floors, quirky corners, larder and cellar.

We have family links to Sheffield, Bakewell and Buxton and appreciate what the Peak District has to offer for all ages.

What makes this cottage unique

Character, cosy and authentic cottage in a Central Village location. Tideswell village offers a friendly, community whilst retaining the feel of a working village with holiday makers easily mixing in with so many cafes, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep. Many beautiful Peak District walks right from the cottage front door for dogs.

We had a lovely short break in Tideswell. The snow made the village look beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was warm and cosy - the wood burning stove was a bonus in the freezing cold weather. It was ideal being in the centre of a village as we were virtually snowed in. We could easily walk to shops and pubs.

The house was very well equipped and the welcome hamper very much appreciated. We need to come again when to explore more of the beautiful countryside.

Ideal country break in a pet friendly quirky cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want for a break in lovely Derbyshire- well equipped and close to the shops of Tideswell - upstairs at the property is amazingly large (the beds are good too!) and all is comfortable with helpful hosts. You need to be aware that parking is away from the house and there are 2 flights of stairs to the 2nd/3rd bedrooms but as it is one of the interesting old old houses that you walk past wondering what is like inside then don't let parking put you off.

Charm, beauty, and comfort describe the cottage and village.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in a sweet little village and both supply everything you need for a perfect vacation. The house is comfortable and the owners work hard to provide their guests with everything they could want or need. There were four of us, all ladies, and everytime one of us mentioned something we wished we had, we would open a cabinet and find one. Wonderful kitchen, comfortable beds, and a short walk to every place you need.

The village has several pubs and restaurants, a pharmacy, tea room, and a commissary which is open into the evening and is only a 3 minute walk from the cottage. We couldn't believe our good fortune in finding a place so convenient to all we wanted to see and do. It took a day or so to figure out the bus system but the locals and the bus drivers were happy to help and

once you experience the buses, it becomes quite easy to explore this part of England without a car.

wonderful location for our family get-together

  • 4 of 5

Six adults and a 6 month old could have been a bit crowded but the unexpected beautiful weather meant we spent much time outdoors. The Welcome hamper was just what we all needed on arrival.

Right in the heart of Tideswell

  • 4 of 5

This cottage has spacious bedrooms and is centrally located for shops and walks. It was lovely and warm, and the log fire was a bonus. Likewise, the owners were helpful in their dealings with us and responded promptly to any queries.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jane for taking the time to write your positive review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the generous sizes of the bedrooms and even though the weather outside was cold and wet, that you always had plenty of logs to light a log fire and unlimited heating and hot water throughout your stay. Thank you too for being such a thoughtful guest and contacting me to say that someone had even knocked on the cottage door to offer to pay for breaking one of our garden pots. We do hope you will visit again when the weather is warm and sunny outside too. Many thanks Nikki

Perfect cottage for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Nikki and John for the lovely touches you provided during our Christmas stay.

The children loved the Christmas tree and the advent train. Have never been to a cottage so well equipped and the welcome hamper was a treat, and we all enjoyed the Christmas cake.

The beds were so comfy so we all slept well. Would like to visit again in spring or summer so that we could take advantage of the glorious walks. We decided to come home a day early as there was an amber warning of snow, which Nikki very kindly notified us about.

The cottage is a real home from home and would be hard to beat.

Cornerhouse is situated in Tideswell village centre, in the heart of The Peak District, between the Dark Peak and White Peak. The surrounding countryside provides opportunities for walking, cycling, mountain biking and rock climbing to name but a few of the vast range of outdoor activites available. Walk directly from the cottage doorstep and simply enjoy the breathtaking scenery and glorious sunsets.

On your doorstep through winding paths are wonderful local shops, a bakery, a butcher, delicatessens, Post Office, and dog friendly pubs and cafés, all serving homemade local produce including local real ales. You can access walks from Tideswell village centre to experience panoramic Peak District views.

Tideswell is a little gem in the countryside, centrally located on main scenic routes through the Peak District National Park, only a short drive or bus journey to the main attractions of Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Buxton, and many more.

The village has an interesting history that can be discovered by visiting the Cathedral of the Peak, the History ‘phone box’, following the Tideswell Hidden histories trail, and talking to the friendly locals of the village.

Ask most people what they know about Bakewell and it’s surely the Bakewell pudding. Bakewell is a very popular tourist attraction and its streets are busy whatever time of year.

Bakewell was granted its market charter in 1254. With a population of around 4000, known locally as the “Capital of the Peak” the town lies approximately 7 miles and about 15 minutes drive from Cornerhouse, Tideswell. Regular bus routes link directly between Tideswell and Bakewell meaning you can leave your car at home for the day out.

The annual Bakewell Show held in August is one of the largest events locally and one of the oldest Agricultural shows in the UK. Weekly markets on Mondays, Bakewell Farmers markets, established for over 700 years, held on the first Saturday of the month, lanes, shopping arcades to explore, walks along the river bank to watch the ducks and trout swimming, tea rooms and The famous Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, plus Christmas Market will offer you an exciting day out.

Chatsworth is approximately 10 miles and a 20 minute drive from Corner house in Tideswell. Chatsworth, known as the “Palace of The Peak” is one of Britain’s most visited stately homes. It has glorious grounds and deer parks to walk through, cafes, restaurants to try, adventure playgrounds for kids and a farm shop to browse.

Chatsworth is an historic house family home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and has been a film location for several films and documentaries including Pride & Prejudice and Death comes to Pemberley.

Edensor (pronounced Enza) is a village in Derbyshire is the closest village to Chatsworth House and much of it belongs to the Dukes of Devonshire. Originally the village was close to the River Derwent immediately below Chatsworth, but between 1838 and 1842, the 6th duke of Devonshire had it moved out of sight over a hill, apart from one cottage whose tenant did not want to move, which still stands in Chatsworth Park.

Try the small café which can be found in the old Post Office in Edensor, serving delicious homemade lunches, cakes, coffees and teas.

Buxton was built as a Spa town and is situated at a higher altitude than and approximately 7 miles and about 15 minutes drive from Cornerhouse, Tideswell. Regular bus routes link directly between Tideswell and Buxton if you want to leave your car at home.

Buxton was modelled on Bath and Cheltenham with its elegant sweeping semi-circle of The Crescent designed by John Carr of York built in 1784. Buxton is now a small market town with shops to explore and having cultural experiences at Buxton Opera House and Arts Centre, beautiful 23 acres of Pavilion Gardens in the heart of the town to walk through and a large dome which is now part of the University of Derbyshire to explore.

St Anne’s well is still a source of the famous waters and you can see local people queuing up to fill containers with the tepid water.

Weekly markets, shopping arcades to explore, Well Dressing ceremonies, Christmas market and festivals will tempt you from Tideswell.

In the Peak District there is an unrivalled range of walking and cycling available. From gentle riverside such as the local Tideswell Dales or on one of the Railway trails, to tough Moorland treks across some of the most challenging walking country in Britain on those northern access moors. Few places in Britain have such an infinite variety of walking opportunities in such a small area. Cornerhouse is centrally located in the Peak District making it an ideal base to explore walks and cycle ways.

To get away from the crowds in the 555 square-mile National Park there is an unrivalled network of around 1,400 miles of public rights of way, plus easy leisure routes such as the local Monsal Trail which has been developed from derelict railway lines.
