    The cottage is beautiful and well equipped. It had everything we needed for a comfortable evening after a day out walking. We particularly liked some of the artwork, including some striking prints. The location of the cottage is perfect, right in the middle of Castleton and next to the well known Cave Dale, so as well as longer walks we did the little two mile circuit of walking up Cave Dale and back round to the village several times in the week. The one piece of advice I'd give is about eating out. If you prefer not to cook each night and want to eat out in Castleton it might be a good idea to plan this ahead of your holiday and book tables accordingly. We found this difficult with many places fully booked. If this happens, we recommend the takeaway pizzas from 1530, and one day we had excellent fish and chips, though this had to be lunchtime as the fish and chip shop isn't open in the evening. Altogether I wholeheartedly recommend this cottage.

The pretty and historic village of Castleton, just three minutes’ walk from the cottage, is located in the heart of the picturesque Hope Valley and is famous for its Blue John stone.
