    The property was lovely and very well equipped (including the welcome pack). The cottage is situated in a beautiful location close to the odd shop, quite a few pubs and ideal for walking. I can highly recommend this cottage.

    The kitchen had everything you could need in abundance (as we have stayed in other places where the crockery was so lacking).The beds were comfortable and I could have lived there as it felt so homely. The xmas decorations (especially the tree) were much appreciated and obviously had taken quite a bit of time to put up.The owner was so helpful and Dylan our lab loved it. We are back next December!!

    Lovely garden to the rear which was secure for the dog to play in. It Had everything you could possibly need even down to towels for the dog . Julia the owner could not have been more helpful when we had a problem with the tv, she definitely made us feel welcome. We have had a lot of cottage holidays over the years and this is way up there as one of the best.

  • "Quaint cottage with pretty front and rear gardens meant we were able to sit in whatever little sun we had!"

    Owner left lots of nice treats for us and the dogs. We’ll located in the village. Private note to the owner. The bannisters are a bit wobbly (and the hand rail on the left does not go to the top of stairs). One of our group needed the support to walk up/down the stairs which is why we noticed this. It may give you issues In the future.

    Thank you for your feed back and to “ private note to the owner” we were on texting terms as you asked for a later check out, in which I obliged? The stair hand rail is the size for the stairs and previous guests do pull on the bannister, but I have now made it more firmer. I was scored points off for cleanliness ?? I did find the cottage left with dirty crockery and my sofa throws used as dog beds, bearing in mind you brought two dogs rather than one! I could go on as I was shocked at how like I say found the cottage. But many thanks and kind regards. Julia Property Owner

  • "Another amazing week at beautiful Grange Cottage."

    This is our third stay here, it is simply the best cottage we have ever stayed at. The location is exceptional, on a lovely road that is two minutes from Cavedale and the centre of Castleton. It is as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside with tasteful decor, the most comfortable sofas and beds. The window seats and log burner are my favourites. From the fully enclosed garden, there are views of Mam Tor and Lose Hill to gaze at while drinking our morning coffee - pure bliss. The cottage is immaculately clean and there are the most gorgeous personal touches that just make the stay so special. We loved the wine and chocolate cake, our dog loved his treats- happy days. The owner goes above and beyond to make this a special place to stay. Loved every minute of staying there, it is our happy place and cannot wait for our next stay.

    Thank you so much Andrea, what lovely feed back and so kind! I’m so pleased it’s your third stay and that you’ve had a lovely time. I’m so looking forwards to welcoming you back in the near future. Kindest regards and take care. Julia ☺️ Property Owner

  • "Cottage comfortable but disappointed in the cleanliness of the kitchen in particular i."

    E cutlery drawer dirty/greasy so needed to wash cutlery before using, cupboard where glasses were stored, had dead wood lice in which had obviously been there for some time, inside of oven not that clean so didn’t use, inside microwave door dirty so didn’t use and shelf missing from inside fridge door. Fridge didn’t look that clean either. Just meant we felt we needed to pre wash crockery etc. prior to using anything. The throws provided in the lounge smelled of dogs. There was a general smell of dirty cooking fat when entering the house. The rope handrail up the stairs looked dirty/greasy so didn’t use this. The 5.30am alarm call every morning from the neighbouring cockerel was also unexpected especially being in a built up area and not the middle of nowhere.

    I’m sorry to read your feed back and in response, I’m sorry I didn’t buff all the cutlery up but a assure you it was clean. I check the cupboards each week and there was no wood louse when I did! The missing shelf was broke by a previous guest as in the oven all the scratches on the bottom but still cleaned weekly. I have a good sense of smell and I couldn’t smell a strong cooking smell or dog smell in the living room. Yes the rope hand rail may be getting ready for replacing but certainly not greasy and is disinfected weekly! As for the wildlife I’m so sorry I have no control of. We are a farming community. I am so sorry all this ruined your holiday and your stay, and going on my other reviews I hope this doesn’t effect my future booking and I assure my other guests that I will keep my high standards and really don’t understand why these guests didn’t contact me with their concerns?? Maybe it was the compensation they have asked for! Deepest apologies Julia Property Owner

    Curious to see what lay beyond the front door, the whole place was a great surprise. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a nice welcome left by the owner. The lounge and bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom was modern and well decorated. It was great to have such a good-sized garden that would be perfect for late evenings in the summer. Situated on a lane that extended from the village green with access to Peveril Castle and the cavern, it was easy to explore the Hope Valley and other villages beyond, such as Bradwell, Hathersage, Tideswell, and Cressbrook, as well as plan day trips to Bakewell and Chatsworth House. Grange Cottage was the perfect home for our Derbyshire adventure.

One suggestion would be a simple “what to do” sheet with regard to the central heating and when to put the rubbish bin/recycling out.

    The little touches like handwash, flowers, tea, coffee and milk on arrival make it all the better. The whole house is extremely comfortable and well appointed with a completely secure garden front and back for the dogs. To have a parking space opposite is also a massive bonus. The location is fabulous, just a couple of minutes walk from the village centre amenities including countless pubs, Blue John shops, a bakers and a post office/shop. The only thing I will mention is that it's probably not that suitable for people with mobility issues, as the hill up to the cottage, although not long, is quite steep. My Mum has arthritis and she did find it a bit hard going. However, it is in the Peak District, so you have to expect hills!! Will definitely be back next year :)

The property

Country cottage meets boutique hotel in this immaculate, stone-built semi-detached cottage, which sits in the centre of Castleton in the pretty Peak District National Park.

This is the ideal choice for a couple or a family group, whether you’re seeking an action-packed adventure or a relaxing time sampling the restaurants and real ale pubs that make up Castleton; there’s nothing to stop you doing both of course!

The entrance hall leads into the lounge where the traditional beams, wooden flooring, charming woodburning stove and stone hearth blend seamlessly with the contemporary furniture and designer soft furnishings.

From here, step into the farmhouse-style open kitchen/diner, with its quaint stable door and beautiful, shabby chic dining furniture and dresser.

Double French windows open out to the private, enclosed garden with views across the surrounding countryside to the stunning hills of the Hope Valley.

On the first floor, there are three delightful bedrooms with a real feel of a character country hotel, along with a designer bathroom with rain shower.

There’s so much to see from your doorstep you could park your car and leave it parked until you reluctantly head for home.

There aren’t many places in the world where you could have your breakfast then take a short stroll to a explore a castle, take a boat trip through a cave 450m underground, or join one of the many spectacular trails offering some of the best walking and cycling to be found.

If they can tear themselves away from the independent shops, cafes and restaurants in Castleton, then city slickers and shopaholics can get their fix just 10 miles away in the stunning spa town of Buxton.

Whether you watch the spring sun set on Mam Tor – Castleton’s Shivering Mountain, or soak up the festive atmosphere of the town’s Christmas lights, this delightful boutique cottage has so much to offer, all year round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
