About Deborah Willoughby

We have tried to offer everything which I would look for in a holiday cottage myself.

Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, room for all the guests to sit around the dining table, good powerful shower, bath, spacious, homely, parking, quiet location and cleanliness.

I have lived in Tideswell all my life and think it is a great place to explore the peak district.

We still live in the village so are on hand should any of our guests need any help.

Tideswell has so much to offer with great tea shops, good pubs, two chip shops and much more. I feel very proud of my village.

Why Deborah Willoughby chose Tideswell

We just loved the fact that the three terrace houses all belonged to the same family and still retain much of the original look from when they were first built nearly 100 years ago. They would have been very grand in their day !

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a fantastic weekend here earlier this month, a family party of seven adults. There was plenty of room for all of us, and the house was well equipped with everything we could need; it was great to find bread and milk waiting for us on arrival. The house is full of character and beautifully decorated, with bright, airy bedrooms and a pretty garden/patio at the back. Tideswell is a lovely village and a great base for anyone wanting to explore the Peak District. Booking and arrangements were very straightforward owing to excellent, helpful communication from Debs. All-in-all a very positive experience!

It was a great base to explore the beautiful Peak District. I have used several cottages through various companies and this was of a high standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lynton Cottage to anyone!!

Arrived to a clean house -the beds were all so comfy with my favourite at the very top of the house. Amazingly deep bath and so very relaxing.

An excellent central base for the Peak District

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the property was very good with a well equipped kitchen and good sized rooms for our family of 6 adults and 3 under 7s. All the facilities worked well. The property was clean and well maintained with all kitchen appliances and equipment clean and easy to work.

The owner provided excellent customer service with good pre visit information. I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative.

The Corner Chippy: excellent fish and chips.

Tideswell Bakery: go early for your bread

Recommended visits: Chestnut Centre, Heights of Abraham, Ilam Park and Dovedale, Lyme Park, Bakewell all between 20 and 40 mins away

Tideswell treasure

  • 5 of 5

A very enjoyable stay for 4 adults and 3 children in this comfortable and very well equipped house. We made use of the well furnished patio and the generous supply of games. It was a pleasure to be find good walks straight from the house and to have shops within easy reach in this very friendly village.

Fantastic, fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our stay in Lynton, your perfect holiday rental property... we all loved it....

For all seven of us, our friends 60th birthday was a jolly time together and we were very comfortable in the house - we booked it because the bedroom accommodation suited our needs exactly and we were not disappointed, the standard was very high - everywhere was beautifully designed, presented and well thought through and practical.....

Historically our group have rented many times, as a way of getting together from different parts of Europe and the experience in your property ranks amongst the top rentals we have had over the last 20 + years... we would all certainly return another time.

thank you again..bob

Best Family Christmas ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Lynton. I do not easily give 5 stars but the owner went over the top to make our family christmas really special. Booking was easy, friendly and efficient. Upon arrival we found the property was very clean and well maintained and in a nice location. Just as stated in the description. Previous to our stay the owner had installed broadband and wireless for us so I could remotely connect to a biogas plant I am supervising for a living. The house was beautifully decorated and the owner put an incredible amount of attention to detail. I could not believe when we found a aluminium foil turkey tray to prepare the christmas dinner in the kitchen. How thoughtful! After we have booked the place my cousin decided to join us with his family. The owner recommended us a place right opposite that was not listed anywhere yet so we booked it last minute. This place was also perfect. This is why I think this place deserves nothing less than 5 stars from us.

Relaxing family half-term break

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice relaxing stay over the half-term break at Lynton. Our group had 5 adults, 3 tennagers and 2 small dogs but there was plenty of room in this spacious, warm and comfortable house. It was simple to book our stay and the the owners quickly responded to any queries we had. There were some nice welcoming touches on our arrival and they briefly popped by to check all was well. The house is really well equipped and the 2 bathroom/shower rooms dealt with all our needs (important with 3 tennagers !). Tideswell is a good sized village which has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms to check out. It is an ideal base to explore the peaks and we would recommend The Monsal Trail for a family cycle ride as well as the Chestnut Otter & Owl centre. We also found a nice (free) walk around the grounds of Charsworth House and admired the wonderful golden autumnal colours.

Tranquility at Tideswell

  • 5 of 5

Spotless and spacious house. Lots of lovely personal touches. Couldn't fault it at all. Kids not too happy about no wi-fi and no phone reception, we personally thought it was a nice break from being online. Lovely village, would recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for lovely review - some phone networks do work and I believe that most do in the top floor bedroom. Wi-fi will be installed for Xmas so hopefully keep the younger members happy. Thanks for recommendation.
