  • "Fabulous house and host!"

    Exceeded expectations for a lovely weekend with family and friends. Everything we needed was there and there were lovely touches to make our stay perfect - the scones, cream and jam were much appreciated on our arrival. Our first visit to Castleton and this property is perfectly located to make the most of the amenities in this lovely village. It was great to park up and not need to use the car again until we left. For a longer stay we would have used the regular bus service to explore beyond Castleton.

    So cosy and spotlessly clean. We had come to Castleton to celebrate 4 family birthdays and everything we needed was provided. Alan gave us a warm welcome, and provided homemade scones and with clotted cream, a bottle of fizz and milk in the fridge. The house is right in Castleton so if walking is your thing, you couldn't have a better location. Shops and pubs all within walking distance too. Off road parking took 3 cars with ease.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Talbot house."

    There were scones and jam and cream, Prosecco, milk, dog bowls, soap in every bathroom, washing up liquid to name a few. Touches like this really set u up for a good stay! The only down side was the back door leads to a shared drive so u go down 2 steps and turn right and up 2 steps to go to the patio. The patio is secure for dogs but means u can’t just have the back door open for the dogs to wander. Also eating out is not as easy as having direct access. This was not mentioned in the listing. Overall tho a well positioned property with plenty of walking and the host was very approachable had we had any probs, which we didn’t.

The house is ideally located in Castleton which is a very good centre for some great walks and convenient for many other activities in the area. We used the top floor twin as a single which was good as the ceiling does slope and would inconvenience the occupant of the bed below the slope and this also makes the chest of drawers a little awkward to access.

    We had three nights in Talbot house and was very impressed by this beautiful property. The standard of decoration and comfort was fabulous, super comfy beds...essential after a long day hiking! The welcome pack when we arrived was very generous and the owner who was most welcoming, allowed us to unload the cars even though we were 2 hours too early. Good sized kitchen with plenty of crockery & cutlery & glasses and a double oven made catering for 8 people much easier. If we needed to be critical, we felt more 'dishes' generally would have been useful, we used the cereal bowls for everything but generally it fitted the bill and everything worked! We were genuinely Impressed with Talbot house but this is feedback so the only critisism we felt was a bath would have been nice and the shower rooms were a bit 'bijou'. Castleton was fabulous and we experienced the delights of most pubs and enjoyed a lovely meal at the George. We definitely want to return to this beautiful place and wouldn't hesitate to stay at Talbot house again.

    Owner lives next door and is available if required albeit we found everything fine and didn’t need to seek him out. On arrival we found a tray comprising a loaf of bread, salty butter, cookies and Prosecco - a very welcoming gift. Thoughtfully they had also left a bottle of milk in the fridge and tea and coffee had been provided - everything you could need before a trip to the shops to stock up. There were lots of touches like that - an OS map on the wall to get acquainted with the area, board games in the cupboard, bowls and treats for the dog, blankets for the dog to lie on - to name but a few. Our dog is old and doesn’t take too kindly to change but he was made so welcome he settled quickly. Castleton is a lovely village with lots of nice eating places. We can recommend The Peak Hotel, The George, and Tilly’s TeaRoom, all of which are dog friendly (as are, apparently a number of others, but as we were out and about in other areas these were the ones we tried in Castleton). For provisions Pevrils Store & Bakery is a MUST. Their bread is delicious - we bought varying different loaves of bread every day (sometimes twice it was so delicious) and cakes, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Talbot House is a lovely base from which to explore the Peak District

    In fact this holiday break became all about the cake! We did have one mishap whilst at the cottage but this was sorted efficiently and without any fuss which is a credit to both Sykes Cottages and to the owners of Talbot House, we couldn’t have asked for more, and for that we would just like to say “thank you!” The cottage itself was comfortable and well equipped, which contributed to feeling homely in a very short space of time and adding to the enjoyment of staying. We didn’t make use of the patio area due to the inclement weather but please be mindful that there is no direct access from the house - you need to go out the back/side door and then into the gated patio area - This won’t be a problem for most people but may be a consideration for families with small children or pets. Overall we had a lovely stay, with a wonderfully generous welcome pack, in a cottage that was well placed to meet the different needs and interests of all who were staying. Thank you!

    It is comfortable and spacious and the owner, Alan, could not do enough for us. He made us feel extremely welcome. And it is in a perfect location in Castleton, close to all the pubs and shops. We will be returning.

  • "Had a great week in Talbot House, helped by fantastic weather."

    The house is very comfortable and warm. Alan, the host was next door and very friendly and helpful. The location is superb - right in the middle of Castleton so no need to use the car as you can do lots of walks from the front door. Including to several pubs! Lovely comfy sitting room and nice big kitchen with a large table for group meals. Excellent dishwasher but the house could probable benefit from a few more mugs. Not a criticism, just a suggestion. Lovely clean, soft white bedding and large towels. When we did use the car we went up to Ladybower reservoir which is about 6 miles away and there are several fantastic walks from the visitor centre. Great rental property. We will certainly book again.

The property

This beautiful townhouse is in the centre of Castleton in the Peak District National Park.

The owners run the adjoining B&B and their expertise in providing a comfortable stay shows in the level of finish at this lovely cottage.

Set over three floors, the top floor features a king-size and twin bedroom sharing access to a large Jack-and-Jill shower room.

The first floor has a king-size double bedroom and a double room, each with an en-suite shower room.

All four bedrooms have a TV, though you may prefer to view the stunning scenery from the windows instead.

The very spacious, open plan kitchen/dining room is extremely well equipped with a split oven and induction hob.

The dining area is a great place for a dinner party or a hearty breakfast while your group plans the next day’s adventure, inspired by the uninterrupted views of Mam Tor and the hills of the stunning Hope Valley.

The tastefully-appointed sitting room is comfortable, light and airy and the patio to the rear is a great place for alfresco dining with a breathtaking backdrop.

Stroll just ten minutes from the cottage and you are faced with many activities such as exploring a castle, taking a boat trip 450 metres underground, or just enjoying some of the many shops, cafés, real ale pubs and restaurants.

Venture a little further to the hills and you find yourself in walking, cycling, birdwatching, paragliding, rock climbing and caving heaven.

A great place to stay to suit all tastes and seasons.
