The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the bustling village of Castleton, in the Peak District, is this stunning end-terrace, stone cottage.

High View Cottage offers a superb base for couples looking to explore Castleton and the Peak District National Park, with direct access to walks, cycle tracks and the famous caverns.

It also offers easy access to a number of sleepy villages and delightful towns hosting plenty of historical attractions.

The property boasts a wonderful open-plan living space, with a range of comfortable furniture to curl up on of an evening, while catching up watching television, reading or just relaxing.

There is a lovely woodburning stove to keep you warm during those chilly evenings.

The kitchen is amply-equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing break to the countryside, whilst the dining area offers a space to enjoy a romantic meal over a glass of wine.

Upstairs has a spacious bedroom with king sized bed and a range of quality furnishings, including matching bedside tables with table lamps, ideal for some late night reading.

There is a separate shower room with high-quality fixtures and fittings.

To the front of the cottage is a stone garden area, with seating and table so you can enjoy a refreshing drink or al fresco dining.

A short walk from the cottage is Peveril Castle.

A ruined Norman fort built in a picturesque country location dating back to the 12th century and showcasing a wealth of history inside as well as outside, perfect for enjoying a delightful picnic.

Castleton has four caverns.

Venture towards the Speedwell Cavern, which offers boat tours of the 18th century limestone caves and lead-mining caverns - or take a scenic walk along the Mam Tor, a landmark hill which is a popular hiking spot for families and friends alike, known for its striking country views.

High View Cottage is a delightful choice for couples looking to enjoy the picturesque Peak National Park and village of Castleton with its many pubs, restaurants, cafes, caverns, local attractions, walks and cycling.
