About Rachel Halley

The cottage owner is Rachel Halley, I grew up in Sheffield and spent a lot of my childhood exploring this beautiful part of the UK. I am passionate about the area, the village and I take great pride in being very hands on with the management of the cottage. I have an ongoing programme of improvements which our regular guests love as there are always new touches whenever they return.

I look forward to welcoming you to Tweedle Dum Cottage.

Rachel Halley purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Rachel Halley chose Derbyshire Dales

We just love the area, the countryside is so beautiful, the locals are so friendly and there is so much to see and do, or our guests just relax and unwind.

We often use the cottage ourselves as an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Having spent many years renting other people's cottages, we have learnt that home comforts are essential for a relaxing holiday. We have filled the cottage with many luxury items that we think you will love and we very much look forward to sharing our cottage with you.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is conveniently located in the heart of the village within easy strolling distance of the Post Office / general store and the 3 village pubs all of which accept pets and serve good reasonably priced food.

We encourage our guests to shop locally as much as possible.

There are many fabulous walks from the doorstep.

What a lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just what it said on the tin :-). The kitchen was very well equipped so nothing extra needed and the four poster bed was great. All in all a good few days away. Sat on the raised terrace a couple of evenings (weather permitting) which was lovely just chilling and reading which was very relaxing and a far cry from the usual hustle and bustle.

Weather was not the best and we were not able to walk too much as the dog injured his foot just before we left home so we were quite restricted. However, he was welcomed to Chatsworth's grounds and the Heights of Abraham but not allowed in to the cave.We did take him into the Treak Cliff Cavern caves which was excellent.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage. The 4 poster bed is amazing and the cottage is so well equipped, warm and cosy.

We just completely chilled out, went for some fabulous walks and ate in the local pubs. We definitely have to come back to do some sightseeing, there looks to be so much to see and do.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is a quiet and cozy getaway from hustle and bustle. It has a perfect balance between traditional cottage with all the new amenities that you could want. It has amazing walks just a few minutes from the front door and you can end up in a pub for lunch before you get too tired. There are a few little shops in the village and Bakewell is not far away. I have recommended this perfect couples cottage to a few people and I am sure to mention it to many more in future. Thanks for a great stay.

Stylishly decorated cosy luxury cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is set in a beautiful location, in a lovely quaint village with two pubs and views across the hills. The décor is all you want from a cottage, beautiful original features, tastefully modernised. The bathroom feels very luxurious with bathrobes, a contemporary countertop sink and a spa outlet tap on the bath. The sofa was easily big enough for two, the gentle lighting made evenings watching TV very cosy and we had control of the heating so could adjust it how we wanted. Bakewell was only 10 minutes away, with quaint and interesting shops but also a Coop store, Buxton is close too and the historic village of Eyam where the villagers isolated themselves from spreading the plague. The kitchen had all of the utensils and cooking equipment you could need, including a dishwasher. The cottage feel of the kitchen made it a pleasure to cook in. All the instructions were clear and arrangements promptly dealt with. The garden at the back was small but big enough to sit and enjoy some sun, if there had been any. I felt more like I was in a hotel but with the freedom and advantages of self catering. I thoroughly recommend it.

A cottage worth staying in

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 days at the cottage sometime back in 2012 and had a lovely stay. I have only just posted a review on here because I'd not got round to it, but we were looking at some photo's of our holiday here and felt I must write one. The cottage was delightful and spotlessly clean. It was very romantic, the four poster bed was beautiful and so comfortable. The downstairs was cosy and the kitchen fully equipped with all we needed. The back yard was small, but nice with it, it was nice to sit and have breakfast out there and relax. The owners were fantastic and so easy to deal with and they answered all our quires promptly. They also made sure the bed correct linen we had requested (my wife is allergic to feathers) was there for us on arrival. The key safe details were easy and supplied a day before our arrival as promised. You will not regret your decision to stay here, the village is lovely and the walks down the river are beautiful. Bakewell is 10 mins away car and a delightful place to spend a day, full of good shops, restaurants and cafes selling gorgeous food.

Fabulous little gem

  • 5 of 5

Luxurious gem of a cottage on the heart of the Peak District. From the minute we pulled into the car park and let ourself in through the lovely front door we instantly felt relaxed a knew it was the ideal retreat for the relaxing New Year we yearned for.

The cottage is beautifully furnished throughout, lovely squashy sofa, luxury bedding, fluffy towels and robes, every time I looked around I spotted another quirky picture or ornament. The owner really has thought of everything. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with top of the range cookware, knives and everything else you need for self catering.

There is a very detailed information booklet, instructions for all appliances and lots of information about the surrounding area, along with a cast range of DVDs of which we took great advantage due to the horrendous weather outside, a good range of books and even hair dryer and straighteners tucked away in the upstairs drawer.

As other reviewers have mentioned the bed is probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in with lovely cotton bedding and fluffy throws.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tweedle Dum as a great little hideaway. Unfortunately we didn't get to venture far in this lovely little village due to terrible storms but felt very cosy and secure tucked away indoors.
