Tick Tock cottage has a stylish interior with an abundance of modern appliances making it perfect for guests planning to stay a week or more. It was baby-friendly (a must for our 17 mth old!) with a baby gate and highchair provided and open-plan living space downstairs (even CBeebies available on the large flatscreen). The bedrooms were surprisingly large with beautiful high ceilings accentuated by spotlights, one with a super-kingsize bed, the other with 2 generous singles. Both bedrooms had room to fit an extra travel cot (which they also provide along with blankets if necc.). The single beds/childrens' room also featured blackout blinds which are great for daytime naps for small children.

The cottage is situated in a great location- a short drive to Matlock, Bakewell and the gorgeous Chatsworth House. There are numerous walks nearby, both for the casual walker as well as a seasoned hiker (we use Pathfinder books). Chatworth estate can be reached via Pilsley (a comfortable 45 mins- quicker if not in snow!). We would highly recommend a visit to their farm shop which has extensive, local fresh produce as well as fresh, oven-ready family meals. The neighbouring restaurant is well worth a visit, especially after a long walk, for their delicious, hearty menu at reasonable prices. They also stock a range of 'Ella's Kitchen' organic baby foods and provide high chairs. Last of all I must mention the stunning views while you eat.

Finally, we have not found a more hospitable host- friendly and approachable, Angus Stokes was so helpful with any queries we had and nothing was too much trouble. Respectful of their guests' privacy while on hand when necessary, we couldn't have asked for more.

“A beautiful cottage in a beautiful village”
Reviewed January 6, 2012 for a stay in October 2011

We had a brilliant week based in this fab cottage - it is beautifully renovated and very welcoming and comfortable. Very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, washing-machine and dryer great for those muddy autumn walks! A fab location, very close to the local spar shop and lots of pubs and restaurants. Bikes could be stored and lots of great cycling around. Owner is very welcoming and knowledgeable. We're planning on going again, definitely.

“Wonderful facilities, and a beautiful location in the heart of the Peak Districtrict”
Reviewed December 9, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Having grown up in Baslow, I was looking forward to returning for a week of walking and reminiscences. The beauty of the Peak District is something I carry with me in my heart, the bleak and brooding ruggedness of Kinder Scout, the ancient woodland of Padley Gorge, the contrast of the Dark and White Peaks, all these places and terrains are very special. Sometimes returning to such places causes disappointment, but revisiting the Peak District and Baslow is something one could repeat time and time again, as there is such a wealth of things to do and see. For walkers it is a dream, but there are also many cultural attractions and masses of historically interesting places to visit. Baslow is a perfect base as it is so centrally located, and Tick Tock Cottage is in a lovely part of the village, only a few minutes from a short woodland walk that takes you up onto the moors, to the famous Eagle Rock.
The cottage is really attractive, the decor is clean and modern, and the facilities spot on for the kind of holiday which combines moorland hiking and other outdoor activities with either eating in and relaxing on comfortable sofas, or dining out at one of the good local pubs and restaurants.
It was particularly nice to find a welcome pack of food including a proper Bakewell Pudding.
The owner of the cottage is welcoming, and my friend and I found the ambience very relaxing. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have made plans for a return visit to Tick Tock Cottage in 2012.

“The perfect holiday.”
Reviewed December 8, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I would like to say what a great time myself and a friend had whilst staying at Tick Tock cottage, it exceeded expectations in many ways, beautifully decorated & furnished, well-equipped, spotlessly clean and in a fantastic peaceful location. A welcome pack of milk, bread, butter, cheese, bakewell pudding and cream was awaiting our arrival, which was extremely welcoming after our long journey! There was ample parking in the private driveway, a Spar shop and pubs within easy walking distance of the cottage. We spent our evenings on the patio, where there was a table, chairs, BBQ and patio heater.

We really did make the most of our stay in Baslow and took in some amazing scenery from Eagle Rock, Mam Tor, Win Hill, Padley Gorge, Stanage Edge, Bakewell, Goyt Valley, Shining Tor, Dovedale and Chatsworth House. We also hired bikes and rode along the Monsal Trail. The local people were very friendly and helpful which altogether made the perfect walking holiday.
