  • "A really lovely comfortable, spacious, clean cottage which was very well equipped with everything you need."

    Loved the extra touches such as the welcome food basket, flowers and treats for the dog. The large dog friendly garden was brilliant. It was in a fantastic location, very quiet but so central to the village. I would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything you need."

    4 adults, 2 kids and a small cockapoo we all enjoyed our stay at the fabulous Croft Cottage. The table tennis was a big hit for the kids and the hot tub was just a lovely treat. The welcome gifts including Easter eggs and dog toy & ball were much appreciated. The owner Chris was very helpful and we will definitely stay again. Thank you.

  • "The cottage is situated in a great location next to some nice pubs and within easy reach of some good walks."

    The cottage was very well equipped, clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing break, the welcome basket was a nice touch. The large enclosed garden was great for the dogs to stretch their legs. We have stayed in many self catering cottages in the past and this is probably the nicest, well done Chris and we would love to return again in the future.

  • "My family and I really enjoyed staying at Croft Cottage."

    It is set in a great location within a lovely garden with a view of Peveril Castle. The hot tub was very welcome after our walks and the table tennis table provided much hilarity. The owner clearly goes to a lot of trouble to make guests feel comfortable and there are many extra touches - fabulous welcome basket, dog treats, quality furnishings and equipment etc. We would love to return, perhaps in the summertime when we can make more use of the garden. Highly recommended.

  • "Had a brilliant long weekend at Croft Cottage."

    Definitely one of the best cottages we've stayed at, it had everything we needed and was cosy and comfortable. Great location close to the many pubs of Castleton, but also secluded and quiet. The private parking was a big bonus. The dogs loved the enormous garden, and we loved the hot tub and pool table. Would recommend to friends and family. Thank you!

  • "We went as a group of five adults annd 2 dogs and this is a fantastic property!"

    !! It’s in the centre of Castleton but also in a very quiet area, the property is beautifully appointed incredibly clean and worked really well. it has a really big garden which is dog friendly and lots of outside space to sit and also enjoy the hot tub. Our host made proactive contact with us and even made the property available early to arrive and late to leave. The hamper was lovely, and it is fair to say that this is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. We will definitely return.

    The best holiday cottage you've ever stayed in... wow, that's amazing feedback - thank you so much. We really try to make it a home from home for all the family (including the dogs)! I hope you will all come back and see us again soon Scott & family, including Yosi & Bradley!! Chris, Property Owner

  • "One of the best holiday cottages I have stayed at ."

    There was amazing attention to detail ,comfort and cleanliness.The treat of sharing the hot tub was even more special when we arranged for local Wellness Brand to come to the cottage to give us massages and facials at a very reasonable cost. The location was beautiful even in January with interesting walks .There were many places to eat and drink. We will definitely be returning. Next time with the dog as there was a whole area dedicated to the dog’s comfort and a large private enclosed garden . Thank you Chris for your warm welcome

    Hi Debbie I'm so glad you enjoyed your lovely pampering break with your friends and to find family history in the village makes it extra special. Yes, definitely bring the dog next time!! Chris, Property Owner

    It was very clean, comfortable and spacious. We came across this cottage at short notice when the one we had booked was damaged by a flood and was cancelled. It was perfect for our party of 5 adults and a toddler.

    Thank you for submitting a review of Croft Cottage. It was unfortunate that your original cottage was damaged in the flood but I'm pleased we were able to accommodate you for your break in Castleton. I'm pleased you and your family all had a great time and I hope you will consider booking Croft Cottage again in the future. Chris, Property Owner

    The large garden (with hot tub) is the ideal setting for two energetic boys and dogs.The cottage is in the heart of Castleton with lots of dog friendly pubs just at the end of the road. Chris the owner had left lots of Halloween touches which were very thoughtful and the boys loved.The adults loved the welcome pack complete with wine and snacks.Everything was thought of down to treats for the dogs.The cottage is large enough but also has a very cosy feel with the log burner in the lounge.Would highly recommend and will certainly return.

You enter through wooden gates affording private parking for at least two cars, giving privacy to the garden.

There is plenty of room for safe storage of bicycles and the utility room houses a washing machine with shower room/WC, ideal for muddy shoes and wet paws to dry off.

The kitchen offers dining options, from a kitchen table to an informal breakfast bar for a quick snack, or you can just relax on the sofa with views of the garden through the French doors.

The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine for guest use.

The dining room seats eight comfortably with dining chairs and bench seating for more formal dining.

The lounge boasts a woodburning stove, Smart TV with plenty of DVD's along with a selection of books and magazines for guests to enjoy some downtime.

One of the king-size bedrooms has a private en-suite bathroom with shower.

The other two bedrooms, one king and one small double share a spacious bathroom with shower, along with a separate downstairs shower room.

On your doorstep is an abundance of shops, pubs and restaurants to try.

Castleton is home to the iconic Speedwell Cavern, with its stunning underground lake, and the ancient ruins of Peveril Castle.

Castleton village is in the heart of the Peak District National Park, which is heaven for walkers, cyclists, paragliders, bird watchers, rock climbers and cavers to enjoy.

Croft Cottage is a fantastic retreat, whatever time of year.
