  • "We had a great week here mid January."

    Extremely clean & tidy upon arrival. Great location & just a 5 mins walk to pub & shops etc. Despite the very cold weather the cottage was very cosy & warm and the log burners were a nice feature to have(take ur own logs though). Would book again if it’s still being rented out as it’s currently up for sale sadly.

  • "Very nice chocolate box cottage very comfortable, beds and sofas, all you need for self catering."

    and fantastic views, central for pubs places to eat and walks, it was not very clean the fridge and freezer and microwave were not cleaned the window sill in the bathroom was covered in dust and flies I did try to hoover before we left but the hoover had no suction due to hoover bag being full and there was no replacement bags. Overal we did enjoy our stay.

  • "Lovely, comfy cottage, very well equipped and in a good location."

    Parking is limited. We thought the provision of two logs for the fire and the milk in the Welcome Pack being a week out of date was a bit stingy! However, we would stay there again.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a perfect location!"

    A short walk to the centre of Castleton (5 mins) but with countryside views to the back made this a wonderful place to stay. The cottage was nice and clean, a decent shower and kitchen facilities too. Parking out the front was available for one car. There were lots of nice touches from the owners of the property such as a book shelf for swapping or sharing books, games and DVD's available and a little folder of information about the cottage itself and it's history, but also the local area and amenities. Would very much recommend staying here!

  • "We enjoyed our stay but the lack of garden furniture - specifically cushions or comfortable chairs - may have been annoying had the weather been kinder."

    Might also have been nice to have had a radio somewhere in the property rather than having to use the TV's. But excellent location and never had a problem parking directly outside. Nice cafe very close by too.

  • "We had a comfortable stay, marred by bad weather unfortunately."

    The cottage had everything we needed except a cafetière for coffee.

    Garden is just so beautiful to be able to see the views in the morning. I will definitely stay again

  • "Beautiful cottage, lovely furnishings & facilities which made our stay very comfortable."

    Only slight issues - there were no dishwasher tablets, only a quarter roll of toilet roll left with no spares anywhere & the UHT milk left as part of the welcome pack went out of date in September 2022. We had to go to the shop as soon as we got there. Apart from that it was excellent & I would recommend anyone to stay there

    Fantastic stay every thing we needed was there great that you left the Christmas tree up for us, very relaxing best cottage we've ever stayed in

  • "We had another wonderful Christmas at Buttercups Cottage."

    We looked at booking again next year but we're sad to see it's already fully booked (no surprise as it's such a beautiful place to stay for Christmas). The cottage is in the perfect location and offers all the home comforts you could want, with the added bonus of the original features of a truly traditional homely abode. We adore both Castleton and Buttercups and will hopefully be fortunate enough to stay again in the future. Thank you for welcoming us back once again to your stunning accommodation

  • "A lovely, characterful cottage."

    Very well equipped and in a fantastic location.

    CathyNov 2022

  • "Although the cottage was very nice we think it would have benefitted from a general tidy up of the outside areas."

    The garden looked very inviting from the listing and we were hoping to use it even though the weather wasn't ideal. However it looked a bit sad and neglected and the front of the house was unswept which meant dragging in dead leaves etc every time we entered. We loved Castleton and would definitely recommend it for a holiday.

  • "A gorgeous cottage, bursting with character."

    In fact, it's far and away the best cottage we've stayed in. We felt at home straightaway... we'd really like to move in permanently! Equipped with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Beautiful views out the windows. Highly recommend.

    KarenSep 2022

  • "This is an amazing cottage."

    A really comfortable place to stay, very spacious and convenient to the village of Castleton with a number of walks close to the cottage. The outside space is a bonus and parking outside the cottage was very convenient.

    It was clean, comfortable, very well equipped and the garden was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the views from the bottom of the garden, a perfect spot for a coffee. The owners were helpful and responsive. It was great that the cottage was dog friendly. Castleton is a great base with good pubs and some beautiful walks. We would highly recommend and hope to return to Buttercup Cottage.

  • "What a beautiful cottage!"

    We didn't need to use the log burners as it was already such a cosy cottage. Really well equipped and it felt like there were three sites in one with three TVs with DVD player and a lovely CD player that could blow the roof off! Castleton itself is a lovely village with loads of walks nearby and great pub's. There are a couple of shops nearby which sell the basics and lots of beer!

  • "The cottage is fabuand in a perfect location."

    In general it was very clean. However, we did find a dirty sock under the coffee table and the coasters and coffee table were a bit sticky - no problem for us to clean them. If the dog policy ever increases to 2 small well behaved dogs we would definitely return. Thanks for the use of such a great place!

Nestling under the castle and surrounded by stunning countryside, this charming cottage provides outstanding accommodation for up to six guests wishing to spend some time in and around Castleton.

Built around 1632, originally 2 cottages, then converted to a larger single dwelling in 1850, it has been recently renovated to retain all its original features including oak-beamed ceilings, open stonework and log fires.

Across the landing is a contemporary family bathroom with a large walk-in rain shower. The outside has a wonderful enclosed garden with upper and lower patios both equipped with garden furniture, ideal for guests to indulge in some alfresco dining together during the summer, there is an outside tap for those muddy paws, muddy boots and bikes.

At the front of the property is a designated parking space opposite the pretty Goosehill Green, perfect for a picnic or for the children to let off some extra holiday energy.
