  • "Beautiful clean, comfortable, well equipped cottage in wonderful location."

    Thoughtful welcome hamper, much appreciated. Great quality bed linens, towels and toiletries. Useful information folders. Parking was tight and tricky but manageable with a small car…our Kona just fit. We had a Tesco delivery which was great, be mindful of small fridge with freezer compartment. Amazing selection of casserole dishes which was great, but maybe could be reduced to give a bit more space in the cupboards, and a small pan would be handy. Cottage might be a bit tight for 6 adults, and first floor bath/shower has limited height…was just ok for us and my over 6’ son and partner were ok in the beautiful loft bedroom. We enjoyed a wonderful week’s holiday at Brookhouse with lots of great walks from the door and from Ladybower reservoir a short drive away. Thanks to the owners who have done a great job updating this lovely old cottage.

    This is a wonderful cottage ideally placed right in the centre of Castleton. We enjoyed three nights, so comfortable and warm with every thing catered for, spotlessly clean and decorated beautifully. Highly recommended and will definitely return. Thank you to our hosts!

  • "Loved the house and it was very well equipped."

    A few maintenance issues which we raised with the owners and they took on board for rectification. Parking space was fine for our small car (Mini) but it was tight. We enjoyed the front garden as we were lucky with the weather but it wasn’t secure enough for our adventurous dog who tried to jump the low wall. Thank you for the welcome hamper which was a really nice touch. The house and Castleton is a fantastic base for a holiday!

    The location was really unbeatable, just a couple of minutes walk to all of the amenities in Castleton, as well as close enough to stunning scenery that we walked up Mam Tor from the door. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

  • "This is a lovely cottage in the magical village of Castleton which I have regularly visited since my parents moved to the Hope Valley village of Froggatt in 1980 where they remained for nearly 25 years."

    Brookhouse is fitted out to a very high standard. The kitchen is narrow but very well designed with plenty of cupboard space. The two bathrooms are modern and easy to use. The cottage was comfortable and warm - there were six of us (plus one dog) and we found plenty of room with the only slight exception is that the double bed in the middle floor would ideally have been wider although the width of room would make this difficult. Castleton is a wonderful village and its location is such that there are fabulous walks without having to take a car. We went ip Mam Tor twice and walked the ridge to Lose Hill. In the evenings, we enjoyed the excellent Castleton hostelries - though gutted we did not quite manage to win the Sunday quiz in the Cheshire Cheese. All in all, a lovely family (2 brothers of mature age, their wives and a daughter each) break. Thank you!

    Dear Jonathan, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Brook House and found the charm of Castleton, it truly is an incredible place. Please do all come and stay again. Best wishes, Rob & Ben Property Owner

    Heating and hot water spot on and cleanliness impeccable. We loved the high standard of the bedding and towels - made it feel like staying in a special hotel! I’ve only marked comfort down by one as we felt that given the space available in the second bedroom, it would benefit from a king size bed - having spent the last 30 plus years in a king size it was uncomfortable to go back to a double for a week. Thanks for a great stay!

    Dear David, thank you for taking the time out to post your review. We're pleased that you all enjoyed your family holiday with us. We would love to add a King Size into the middle bedroom but unfortunately the cottage size bedroom only allowed space for a double. Next time you will have to fight for the master bedroom.

    The towels were lovely & smelled beautiful, the freshly baked brack cake was delicious & the kitchen was superbly equipped with high end utensils. Literally the only suggestions we would make would be to provide some espresso cups to go with the lovely Nespresso machine & maybe consider painting a white line along the edge of the steps which would make parking the car in the dark a little easier. We have booked Brook House again later in the year - a no brainer for more Peak District walking.

Spanning over three floors are three attractive bedrooms, boasting original character throughout with feature stone walling, exposed beams, sloped ceilings and views out to the hills.

The first floor holds a double and a twin, whilst the second floor benefits from a quirky master king-size, a funky room with very low hanging beams, a vanity desk, a porthole window, as well as a luxurious en-suite bathroom with beautiful views from the Velux window.

The other delightful bedrooms have full use of the first-floor bathroom, where they can take their pick from a soothing evening bath or a refreshing morning rinse.

Utilise the well-equipped kitchen space for preparing delicious home-cooked meals, fitted with stone flooring, shaker-style units, an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, Nespresso machine and a fridge, before residing in the living area where your meals can be devoured on the dining table.

The family dining space is the perfect spot to relish quality family time over sociable mealtimes, passing around the bottle of wine in this gorgeous setting.

Once everything has been cleared away, settle in for a cosy evening in the lounge, lighting the toasty woodburning stove as you choose a film from the Smart TV and prepare your movie snacks.

This property is perfectly located in the gorgeous village of Castleton, with everything you need at your doorstep, find the local shop just down the road for all your essentials, dine out at one of the rural pubs, or visit one of the fabulous tea rooms before buying traditional fudge at the nostalgic sweet shop.
