  • "A very comfortable stay in a well equipped house."

    Good showers and comfortable beds. Owner responded promptly to a request to turn on the heating when it was a bit chilly in the evenings - though then the weather warmed up and we didn’t need it anymore! Good location very close to 2 village shops and all Castleton’s pubs and cafes/restaurants.

  • "We loved our stay at Talbot House!"

    For four adults and two teenagers there was plenty of room, the kitchen was perfectly equipped, lounge was cosy and comfortable. The bedrooms were roomy and the beds very comfortable, fluffy towels in the bathroom too! The house is perfectly positioned for adventures in the Peak District, plenty to see and do locally without having to jump in the car. Castleton is a lovely village with good restaurants and a well stacked little shop should you need anything. Looking forward to a return visit soon!

    The property was spacious, well equipped and warm. The owner was friendly and helpful, it was nice to arrive and not immediately have to go find milk. There was a nice goody basket of pastries. Importantly in the middle of December the property was warm. Only negative was one double bedroom had a tiny sink in the en suite. Thanks and we would happily stay there again if we had a large group

  • "Excellent house for a family gathering."

    All necessary comforts are provided, including a plate of welcoming pastries and milk and butter in the fridge. The owner Alan is friendly and very welcoming and keen to ensure you have all you need. Great outside seating area with a giant parasol and a gas barbecue. 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. Really enjoyed our stay at Talbot House.

    House spotlessly clean and comfortable. Owners who live next door and run a book a room service could not have been more helpful. situated in the beautiful village of Castleton, with all the local amenities at hand. Welcome pack with home made bread a lovely touch. Only down side we took our dog away with us, advertised as a garden but more of a small sitting out area. Not directly accessible from the house. This meant putting the dogs on a lead in order to get them outside to patio area. Having said that beautiful walks right on your doorstep. Home from home feel. Despite garden would book again.

Talbot house is large, comfortable and nicely positioned with lovely views from the back patio garden. Castleton is an excellent centre for exploring the Peak District and there are several walks and places of interest nearby without the need for a car.

  • "Booked for long weekend with friends to walk Jacobs Ladder, great experience."

    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.

  • "Lovely comfortable spacious house, very well equipped."

    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

    Plus our well behaved dogs. And we all had a fabulous time! The owners were extremely animal friendly. A bowl of water was already set down in the kitchen waiting for its first thirsty customer and there was a full jar of doggie treats provided! The rooms for the adults were so clean, cosy and attractive that we all slept well and enjoyed the lovely bathroom facilities. The downstairs loo was a bonus. The kitchen/diner was huge enough for us all to congregate in as meals were prepared. All the equipment we needed was there. We sat at the lovely big table, taking in the wonderful view. We didn't watch much tv, but it was in a wonderful, cosy lounge, big enough for us all. The situation is fabulous for a base to explore the town and surrounding countryside and has plenty of parking space. We met the owmer, Mr. Baskerville, who was so nice and helpful. We do hope the dogs didn't disturb him as they were a bit unsettled the first night, so we do apologise for any inconvenience. We definitely hope we get chance to visit again sometime. Thank you Sykes and Talbot House!

    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!

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.
