Brighton couple acquire unique bed and breakfast freehouse and restaurant in the heart of the Peak District.

In early September, Lee Cockshott and husband Joe Wain, who own the Marine Tavern in Broad Street, Brighton, acquired The Horse & Jockey, a beautiful Derbyshire stone freehouse with restaurant and bed & breakfast in Tideswell, Buxton.

A traditional country inn, The Horse & Jockey nestles in the heart of the Peak District in the picture postcard village of Tideswell, where Joe was born and spent his life before moving to Brighton three years ago.

It’s a small village with a population of just 800. There is a post office, green grocers, family butchers and farm shops. All food on their menu comes from within or very close to the village, except for the fish which they source direct from the trawlers in Grimsby.

Regular theme nights with live singers have recently featured entertainment from both Gabriella Parrish and Jacquii Cann.

They offer a choice of six en-suite bedrooms, including a twin room, a family room, and a four-poster bedroom. During the winter months the public areas boast open fires and they are dog-friendly.

The journey by car from Brighton up the M1 takes around four and a half hours. and it’s worth every minute as on arrival you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.

Local attractions worth checking out include; Chatsworth House stately home, the picturesque village of Matlock Bath, the small market town of Bakewell (home of the Bakewell Tart), Bolsover Castle, and the spa town of Buxton with its beautiful opera house, along with countless walking routes, bike rides and for the children Alton Towers is well worth a visit.

Bed and breakfast costs from £69 per room per night and the restaurant boasts a fine menu of hearty country dishes.
