    • “Garden Cottage Peak District”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was very cosy and clean with everything you require to enjoy a pleasant holiday. The owners were very helpfull and polite. Castleton is a very friendly village with several places to eat.Having a pet and wanting to spend time with him we found it an advantage that dogs were welcome in some pubs and coffee shops.”

    • “This cottage was in a wonderful "away from it all" location. it was very well set out, very well equiped and the owners were extremely nice people they made us all, including our golden retriever dog, feel extremely welcome. There were many and varied walks in and around the area and the cottage was a delightful retreat at the end of each day. We will certainly return.”

Sparrowpit is a delightful little hamlet surrounded by verdant green countryside, set amongst the beautiful rolling fells of the Peak District National Park, boasting a village hall and many pretty cottages. Sparrowpit is perfectly situated for either an action packed break full of caving, climbing, and enjoying the great walks from the doorstep, or a quiet countryside break in this rural part of the Peaks. The Winnats Pass cuts a course through superb scenery down to Castleton, and is a delight for walkers, cyclists and motorists alike. Nearby are the pretty villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Castleton and Hope, while horse riding, cycling and walking and the wonderful Castleton Caves are all available within 7 miles. Enjoy a day out at Alton Towers or visit the impressive Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, all within easy reach. Also within easy reach are Buxton, Matlock Bath and Carsington Water, while further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek.
