  • "Loved all the extras eg dishwasher tablets, washing powder and so on."

    It is a lovely cottage & we had a wonderful stay, thank you. The only comment about comfort was it was a little hot at night (I think the duvets were perhaps a little thick) and there were one or two cobwebs in areas but these were minor. Thank you

    We’re very glad that you had a good stay. Thank you for your feedback which is always useful. Summer duvets will be available in the future Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Trickett Gate Cottage."

    The house was comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed breakfast outside in the garden next to the stream with the occasional duck visitor. Castleton has lots to do and lovely walks from the door. You are also well placed for other attractions in the Peak District. The only thing I would mention is that the parking is tight for 2 cars, so you need to be a confident driver to navigate it. That said, off road parking is a huge benefit, as it is very few and far between in properties here given the age of Castleton. I would definitely book again, and really didn't want to leave. Also, look out for the fossils in the wall near the drain pipe at the front of the property!

    Many thanks for your feedback, we’re very happy you had a lovely time and look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Property Owner
