      Weekend away

      A group of 8 spent a lovely break in Tideswell. House very clean and warm. As described and good location in the village

      4.0 out of 5 Good
        Good place to stay, well equipped.

        Clean, well appointed. Pleasently furnished and kitchen well equipped. Comfortable beds. Unfortunately the driveway leads to other properties so although there are gates, we could leave the doors open to let the dog sit outside. The only other negative was the teapots. With one you could not get the lid off easily, and the other, the lid fell into the cup when pouring. No milk jug either. Overall we all had a wonderful stay despite the weather not being very good.
