  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful village."

    Cottage has everything you need and more. Double bed was so comfy and the owners have definitely splashed out on luxury bedding / towels. Log burner was brilliant at night. Washing machine was good as it was quite muddy in some parts of our walks. Owner were to hand if there were any problems. Cottage was very clean and kitchen had everything you needed and more. Lovely cake and milk was left when we arrived, nice greeting. Managed to park outside. Loads of places to eat out or have a drink. Wonderful stay and hope to come back here.

  • "Cherry Tree Cottage itself exceeded our expectations."

    We have stayed at many cottages throughout the country and this has been the best so far! Located at the heart of the lovely little village of Castleton with Peveril Castleton as a dramatic backdrop. It really is the perfect location for a holiday with all local amenities a very short stroll away. We came to The Peak District to walk and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Even though the weather was fairly inclement (50+ mph winds and driving rain) this could detract from the wonderful short break that we experienced in Castleton.

  • "Came here for a 4 night stay by train, the location is that perfect for walking, plenty of pubs, cafes and shops for essentials we just didn’t need the car."

    We took an easy walk to the Trekk Cliff Cavern, bus to Hathersage for a lovely 6 mile circular walk, bus to Bakewell for an afternoon and walking around the Castleton area. I cannot recommend this cosy, spotlessly clean little cottage highly enough, well deserving of a great review.

    Cottage was so clean and welcoming on arrival, all decorated beautifully and with everything you need within in it for a break away in Derbyshire. Plenty of cooking utensils if you did wish to eat in but also in walking distance into Castleton with plenty of eateries. The beds were so comfy it was hard to get up of a morning! But after a hard days walking it was lovely to come back to a warm and homely cottage. Instructions from the owners were clear and well described and contact details sent over prior to arrival. Would definitely recommend and will be back to stay once we find a break in the cottage bookings :) !

    The cottage is beautifully clean and well equipped for a family holiday. The twin room is a very generous size so the children don’t feel they are squished in together. The kitchen is modern and has everything you could need. The fact the owners leave items such as a cake to welcome you, milk and other essentials for a self catering holiday is so helpful and saves having to bring “stuff” with you. Castleon itself is a great base to explore the Peak District with many walks starting and ending there and there are several great places to eat and have a pint at the end of a long walk.

    The owners have equipped the cottage with everything even supplying cling film and tin foil for example and the bedding and towels are high quality. The position of the cottage is perfect, Everything in the village is a 5 min walk away. If you are staying intending to go for some walks in area, numerous trails you will find online go right by the front door. Buxton is 15mins drive, Chatsworth 30mins and Trafford Centre 50mins so whatever your reason for visiting the area, you'll be hard pushed to beat this place. We don't normally return to the same place as there are so many places to visit, but we're are definitely returning to the cottage in a couple of years.
