the cottage was warm and cosy and well equiped and in afantastic location right at the entrance to cave dale which is a hilly but fantastic walk. set right in castleton and close to 6 pubs who are all good for food. we love visiting the peak district and this cottage is in an ideal position for everything you need. the parking space is very tight tRead moreo get too and you need a smallish car to fit up there. that said there are nearby streets that have spaces. we would definately like to return.

Cosy lounge, good sized kitchen and bedrooms. Fantastic location - close to the start of the Limestone walk over the dales which takes in Peveril Castle, close to Peak Cavern and ten minutes' walk to local village shops or less than ten minutes to pubs and cafes. Good location to explore further too - close to Blue John and Treak Cliffe Caverns, BaRead morekewell, Chatsworth, Sheffield, Manchester and North West Yorkshire. Hide

Lovely cosy cottage in Castleton, nicely decorated and equiped, spotlessly clean. We had a week of wonderful walks in Edale, Mam Tor and out to Chatsworth and Bakewell. Castleton itself is English pretty, has a ruined Castle to visit and lots of good pubs and cafes within a very short walking distance. Highly recommend as a location for a Peak DistRead morerict break. Hide
