About the neighborhood
In the Middle Ages the village of Tideswell was known for its lead mining. Today it’s best known for its 14th-century parish church known as the 'Cathedral of the Peak', A sundial in the churchyard is believed to be positioned on the steps of the village's market cross. Although markets are no longer held, Tideswell’s is still a fully functioning village allowing residents to live, work and play without needing to leave its vicinity.
The beautiful rolling hills of the Peak District adorn the skyline in all directions and for those wanting to stretch their legs both the Limestone and Monsal Trails run close bye. The latter follows the course of the former Midland Railway which winds its way along the spectacular Wye valley.
The Peak District is criss-crossed with small country lanes, usually bordered by dry stone walls, and therefore the best way to get around and take in the scenery is on four legs or two wheels!
The Peak District is also full of villages to explore, each with its own story to tell. The nearest town is Buxton famous for its spa waters. Castleton to the north is home to the semi-precious Blue John stone and the underground mines from which it was extracted, whilst to the east stands the majestic splendor of Chatsworth House surrounded by its Capability Brown designed park.
