Exchange Cottage dates back to the 1700s. It was once part of a shop, Chapmans of Tideswell, and in World War Two the kitchen housed the telephone exchange, which is where the name of the cottage comes from.

Exchange Cottage has been lovingly restored and is a comfortable base to explore the local area all year round.
