Accommodation in Tideswell

Accommodation in Tideswell is not included in the price of the Silva Navigation School courses but there is plenty in Tideswell and the surrounding area to suit all tastes and budgets from pubs and bed and breakfast to self catering.

There is a nearby Youth Hostel (Ravenstor) and a campsite just on the edge of Tideswell near Little Hucklow (Bushey Heath Farm 01298 873007) and another in Blackwell, just off the A6, 3 miles from Tideswell. For other B&B and self-catering accommodation in and around the village see the Visit Tideswell website.

Accommodation must be booked directly and not via The Silva Navigation School. For details of accommodation further afield go to the Visit Peak District and Derbyshire’s web site.


The weekends are based at The Anchor Inn on the edge of Tideswell, which serves excellent food. Food is served from 6 pm each evening. Most people choose to join us from 6 pm onwards, where we can swap tales and get to know each other (the evening tuition starts at 7.30 pm).

If you think you might be late or prefer eating later, then this is usually possible. Please order your food before the evening session starts (which usually finishes by 9 pm at the latest). You can of course make your own meal arrangements.

N.B. Meals are not included in the price of the weekend.

Lunches may be available from your accommodation or there are suitable shops in the village.
