The property

Nestled in the heart of Castleton, in the Peak District, is this mid-terraced stone fronted property, Millstream Cottage.

This character cottage is beautifully appointed throughout and is perfect for couples or small families wanting to explore this popular part of Derbyshire.

Be welcomed into the sitting room on arrival, complete with a dining table, two sofas and an alluring woodburning stove set within a feature stone fireplace, perfect for curling up on a winter evening whilst catching up on your favourite TV shows.

A low door leads into the fitted kitchen, appointed with a selection of modern appliances, crockery and cooking utensils to meet your culinary satisfaction while also housing a washing machine should you need it.

A set of open plan stairs lead up to a mini landing area, with a charming king-size double bedroom at one side and a long twin room at the other.

Boasting plenty of character, the ceilings have been designed to reveal the original beams with LED spotlights bringing a modern twist, while the original wooden floors will remind you of the age of this property.

Outside you are treated to a stunning rear courtyard area with millstream water running through, providing the perfect spot to enjoy an evening drink on the decking or on the built-in bench with canopy over.

The pretty and historic village of Castleton is home to a selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy, as well as many Peak District delights with four underground show caves to be explored: Blue John Cavern, Speedwell Cavern, Treak Cliff Cavern and Peak Cavern.

There are some spectacular walking and cycling opportunities towards Mam Tor, a landmark hill which is a popular hiking spot and is known for its striking valleys, as well as towards the ruins of Peveril Castle, which stands high above the village.

Not far away are the delightful villages of Edale, the start of the Pennine Way, Hope and Hathersage with its seasonal outdoor swimming pool.

For a change of scenery, you may consider a trip to the ever-popular Alton Tower’s theme park, which is roughly an hour’s drive from the cottage.

With much to see and do from the doorstep, Millstream Cottage is an inviting escape for couples and families, whatever time of year.
