Situated in the very heart of the village of Tideswell, this lovingly restored, traditional terraced cottage dates back to the 1700s and was once part of a shop – ‘Chapmans of Tideswell’, a newsagent and printing company

The property’s unusual name was coined during the Second World War when the rear of what is now the kitchen was used as a telephone exchange. The sleek, modern interior of this cottage offers great accommodation for a total of four people – sleeping arrangements being one double bedroom and one with adult bunk beds – and is only a short walk from local amenities, including excellent traditional pubs, local restaurants, intriguing curiosity shops, and an ice-cream parlour.


Exchange Cottage Tideswell
An excellent rental. The facilities were more than adequate. Three pubs serving food within walking distance. A restaurant/bar at the Courtyard just past the George which is quite upmarket but do excellent takeaway pizzas. A Co-op, Post office and Chip shop. Buxton is not far if you require more. Ideal for walking or just as a base to visit the surrounding area.

A well equipped cottage in a great location, a great base to explore the area from. It was very child friendly and the owners' communication was great.
Ms Palmer

This is a cosy, comfortable cottage, ideal for walks and visits in the Peaks. There were lots of beautiful walks close to hand. Our granddaughters loved being next door to an ice cream parlour! It is also very convenient for shops and places to eat.

If you want a good nights sleep - Avoid !
The Cottage itself and facilities are very good. However ......... the situation of the property is far from ideal. To start with it is on the main road through Tideswell, for a small village it is very noisy with speeding cars a huge lorries passing through right outside the window. Then !!!! the icing on the cake ! there is a very noisy, rowdy neighbor living right next door. You can quite plainly hear them walking up and down their stairs from the master bedroom in Exchange Cottage, Its like they're in the room. Thumping around on the floors from next door, conversations and shouting are quite clearly audible, as is loud music. Talking to the locals. this person is well known for being a nuisance, We were kept up until 2am on our Friday and 4am on the Saturday/Sunday morning. Definately not recomended, avoid at all costs if you want peace !

This cottage was just right for our family of four. It was cosy, clean and comfortable.
