We have loved the Toffee cottage & enjoyed the beautiful interior with nothing left to wish for everything has been so well though out & catered for all our needs. Comfy beds, luxurious bedding. So peaceful & relaxing I could not have wished for anything better. Hands down the best holiday cottage we have stayed in & we have already booked for next year. We had lovely weather & enjoyed the walks, the local shops & everything. See you next year!

We have had the most lovely week staying at TOTS despite the rain! The cottage is truly dog friendly Bertie & Polly fully made themselves at home. Tideswell is a super village we will definately be back. Fantastic.

What a way to welcome in the the New Year! A gorgeous cottage impeccably styled (I have took lots of photos so I can use some of the ideas at home - particulary the dog washing area) The cottage was spotless & everything had been thought of. Wonderful!

Exceptional host, the best we have had through air B and B. Julie even went to purchase a baby bath for us. The first thing that struck us when we went in was the cleanliness - it really was spotless. In addition, the interior design is simply fabulous. Mrs Hinch (!) would be proud. We couldn’t be more grateful for all of the small touches to make our stay lovely.

This is a beautiful cottage, high spec interior with great attention to detail. It felt like a real treat for a family of four plus our dog. Log burner made it very cosy in the evening. Good location for lots of walks and pubs. There were plenty of maps and guide books which proved useful. The lemon drizzle cake and Prosecco on arrival was a great welcome. Liked the touches to make our dog feel welcome especially the lead and dog biscuits. Julie was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing place! Loved it. Great amenities. Well thought out - everything you need. Host was amazing and great communication. Village was lovely. 4 pubs in walking distance and all very hospitable and lovely food. Great for days out in the local area, with lovely walks (for us and our dog).

We had a lovely couple of nights at The Old Toffee Shop. Clean, comfortable, beautifully finished and full of thoughtful touches. Julie's communication was excellent with lots of recommendations for food, and things to do in the local area. Would definitely recommend!

The cottage really is perfect. The decor is amazing and immaculate. Everything was provided that we could possibly need with some lovely added touches. Julie was an excellent host, replying to any queries almost immediately and providing us with all the necessary information about the cottage and surrounding area. The location is great, there is plenty of pubs, walks and shops around the cottage which meant there was always plenty to do (we didn’t use our car once) We couldn’t recommend the cottage enough.

TOTS is the most beautiful little cottage in a lovely village. The way it had been lovingly designed and decorated is just gorgeous, perfect place for our girls weekend. Tideswell is a lovely little village too, would highly recommend The Merchants Yard for dinner, thank you for recommendations Julie, one of the best steaks we have ever had! Would love to come back to stay again and explore the local area more. Will definitely be telling family and friends about TOTS! X

The Old Toffee shop was a great place to stay for our weekend away with the kids. It was definitely a home from home, with those little extras which make the weekend special. Tideswell has everything a Peak District village can offer. We we definitely return!

This is a first class cottage. We stayed for 2 days. 4 of us (2 boys aged 10 & 14) and 1 cockapoo. The place is simply perfect. Every detail has been thought through from cake & wine on arrival to doggie shower. The village is in an ideal location. Thank you for sharing such a lovely property

We've just stayed at TOTS and have loved every minute of it. The cottage is immaculate, yet homely, and every thing has been thought of by the excellent host Julie. The beds are very comfortable. The village itself is lovely and a great place to unwind. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

We arrived at The Old Toffee Shop on Boxing Day - a beautifully appointed and really practical base for a few days exploring the Monsal Trail and Chee Valley with our two boys. The cottage was warm, comfortable and a pleasure to call home, even just for three nights!

A truly gorgeous cottage, the owners have thought of every detail from hot dog shower to hotel quality bedding. Recently renovated it is truely a first class property in a central location. Couldn't have been happier, spent a lovely 3 nights albeit very snowy and would highly recommend. Tideswell is a picturesque village with pubs, cafe & shops. Walks from the doorstep are great & coming back to a roaring fire & a bottle of red in The Old Toffee Shop was rather splendid! Book it you won't be disappointed & Julie the owner is lovely and accommodating - first class!

We had a fantastic time in Tideswell, staying at Julie and Nigel's wonderful cottage. Our 11 year old son - a huge fan of home renovation programmes and a discerning critic of all things interior (!) - thought that the house was superb in every way: the glossy kitchen, the calming colours and the soft throws and fabrics. We all agreed with him - it felt like we were staying in a luxurious hotel suite but with the independence of self-catering. The village itself has everything that you need to make your stay easy and comfortable: a couple of good pubs, cafes for breakfast or lunch and a handy shop. The area around Tideswell offers lots of things to do and we were busy every day, despite the variable weather. There are many beautiful walks in close proximity, whether you want to wander by the river - our favourite type of walk - or climb into the hills around; cycling the Monsal Trail was also something that we really enjoyed. Thank you, Julie and Nigel, for a fabulous break!

This idyllic quaint cottage is perfectly beautiful in every way. The styling at TOTS throughout is stunning with lots of attention to detail and care making it warm and cosey. It is furnished at a very high standard with lots of thought gone into decor and colour themes including the added little touches like the blankets, lighting, fire, holiday dog lead, dressing gowns and muddy boot basket and room. We even messaged the owners for paint colours and where the contents were from! On arrival we got 2 bottles of wine and a surprise lemon drizzle cake delivered from the village bakery. You know it’s a good cottage when this happens. The cottage is immaculately clean and comfortable with plenty of space for 6 plus a dog. Tideswell brought us beautiful country walks, pubs and lovely food. We enjoyed a meal at the bulls head and merchants which I would highly recommend. Julie and Nigel made it so attentively enjoyable and were in contact making sure our stay was first clas and relaxing, we can’t thank them enough. I’ve stayed in many cottages but this one I would highly recommend to stay at. I will be returning and recommending to friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful 3 nights seeing the new year in with family.

The toffee shop cottage was unbelievably well appointed and remodelled. The village was very very nice people were unbelievably friendly. We had so much fun we wish we could’ve stayed longer and if our vacations take us back to this area we will definitely stay here again.

The old toffee shop is stunning, this beautiful home provides luxury and a real homely feel. We felt like we had booked into five star accommodation, nothing has been overlooked to make your stay perfect, the interior design is amazing (and the coffee machine is awesome) We booked last minute for a short break and it was perfect. A family of 4 and the fur baby enjoyed long walks and cozy nights in Tideswell. The village offers everything you need on the back drop of the beautiful Peak District. The old toffee shop has been lovingly restored with a real touch of luxury. We could not have hoped for a more perfect place for our short break and would recommend it hands down. All made stress free by the attentive contact by Julie to make sure we had everything we needed. Enjoy!

Julie was a great host, making sure we had all the info and in particular took time to make sure we had everything we needed for our baby girl before we arrived. Everything was just as described and as a bonus our dog was welcomed and spoilt with his own shower and dog treats. The lemon drizzle cake on arrival was delicious, the coffee machine an excellent addition and the bed was super comfy, what more do you need? Would definitely recommend and will come back if we are in the area. Thanks for having us!

Lovely cottage with everything you could ever need! Great little village with lots of shops, cafes and pubs.

Owners couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, I was there for a month and each week they dropped by a cake and beers! A lovely surprise. Would definitely come back again if I was in the area.

Perfect is the word!! Situated a stones throw from the shops and pub, everything about this cottage is fantastic. Beautifully renovated, amazing beds, awesome shower, brilliant kitchen, literally every home comfort is provided. Even down to a fabulous cake from the Cherry Tree Bakery - ours was Lemon Drizzle (so yummy!), and was perfect with a coffee from the beans to cup machine in the kitchen. We really didn't want to leave. A true hidden gem of a holiday cottage!

This former sweet shop has been turned into a superb holiday retreat. Situated in the heart of the village with very friendly residents. The cottage has been finished to a very high standard and has everything you need even including a doggy shower in the boot room. A lemon drizzle cake and drinks awaited our arrival, so we were soon sat in front of the log burner. The bean to cup coffee machine was hard to leave alone and even managed a brief hour in the courtyard on a deckchair in the April sunshine. You do not need to be keen walkers/cyclist to enjoy this area everyone and dogs are most welcome. We stayed as a family of 4 (2Adults+2Children(17&13) and the dog but there was plenty of room for us all. We never go back to the same place again! But you never know we may well do this time ;-)
