On the Saturday of the May Day Bank Holiday, Tideswell holds its annual Food Festival. A day celebrating local food and local food producers. Streets lined with fabulous food filled stalls, and lots of street side entertainment.

Every year at the end of June, Tideswell holds its annual Wakes and Well dressing festivities. A week of celebrations and events. As you can imagine accommodation gets booked up quickly so if you plan on coming to us in the last week of June, be sure to book early.

The villages around Tideswell are equally worth a visit – each having their own individual charm and history. You can find out more about the villages of Litton, Millers Dale, and Cressbrook on this page here.

If you’re wanting a holiday with nightclubs and partying, then Tideswell and its surrounding villages are probably not for you. However, if you want to take time out to appreciate the Peak District countryside, chat to locals in traditional country pubs, and relax amongst friends then you couldn’t find a better place for your holiday.
