  • "Much loved cottage."

    Bathroom off the lounge really means best suited for a couple. Lack of cleaning pack in kitchen was disappointing but other than that good location and cottage

    We took on board your comments and there's more cleaning materials in place now. Thankyou. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely very comfortable and in a great location, parking at the property was not possible but the parking permit provided was great as the car park was just over the road."

    Overall we had a great time and would return.

  • "The cottage had all facilities with the exception of some washing up materials ."

    Parking was impossible even though there was a diagram showing us where to park but locals had those spots. My friend banged her head on a glass shelf fitted above the wash basin when bending over the basin. Otherwise the cottage is situated very convenient to the centre. Very comfortable seating. Loved the burning log fire. Made it very cosy for our autumn visit.

  • "Parking is not accurately described."

    The cafe right outside from door is a a bit smelly when cooking.

  • "Parking is really only available on the public car park across the road."

    A permit is made available and there was only once we could not get on the car park but this should be made clear in marketing. At the rear of the cottage is a lovely seating area with the mill stream running through which is a lovely place to sit and have a glass of wine after a long day out. Not all pubs were open for food every night , some closed Monday and Tuesday so essential that you book .

  • "A beautiful cottage in the best place in the Peak District."

    Warm,cosy and spotless. We had no issues with parking and you can always drop off and park in the main car park literally across the road. Thank you for a lovely break.

  • "The cottage was lovely & the location was perfect."

    However, we chose it as it was listed as having off street parking, and we even phoned to clarify this. In reality there is no off street parking. The owner provides a permit for 1 car to park in the public car park across the main road. This needs to be made clear in the listing as the neighbouring cottages and businesses are not happy about it, and any visitors with mobility issues would have problems.

  • "Very happy with our stay at Millstream."

    It was comfortable, well decorated while still in keeping with its age, and had everything we needed. Right in the centre of Castleton (literally just off the main street) so it was only a minute’s walk from any shop, cafe, pub, restaurant etc. We especially loved the garden space at the back - it backed onto the stream (great during the heatwave!) and it was really private and quiet. A parasol is also provided. During the hot days we stayed out there all day! There were a few cobwebs out back, but that’s what you get when you stay in the countryside. The bedrooms were both decently sized with comfortable beds. Good bathroom shower. The owner had left a token bottle of prosecco as well as a carton of milk - thank you, this was a nice touch! The parking directly outside the cottage was a squeeze, so we decided to avoid the hassle and just park in the big visitor car park just opposite. There were always plenty of spaces here and the owner provided a “year round” parking ticket so we could park there and in other town car parks for free. We didn’t mind this at all and understood that in a town as small and busy as Castleton, it would be near impossible to find such a lovely and centrally located holiday cottage with its own designated parking space. Castleton itself was buzzing during the good weather - so many outdoor restaurant/pub spaces to choose from, an amazing bakery which sells the best sausage rolls and pies, and obviously plenty of walking routes nearby. Castleton seems to be the place to be! Would highly recommend Castleton and Millstream Cottage!

  • "Beautiful cottage spotlessly clean together with a fantastic little courtyard to have a relaxing drink in the afternoon."

    Parking a little tricky but the car park pass came in handy. Recommend booking restraints ahead especially at the weekend.

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.
