    Me and my furry friend felt very safe. The cottage had everything we needed and was a perfect location to explore the area with lots of walks without getting into the car.

  • "Third time we have hired this property over the New Year period so knew exactly what to expect from the property and Castleton itself."

    The property is conveniently located for walks from the door, places to eat, and 7 pubs all popular with walkers etc. Space for one vehicle off-road parking means you can come and go without having to worry where you are going to park on return or pay in the public car parks. Cottage was warm and we turned the radiators off more than once without feeling cold. Welcome pack of milk, wine and quality chocolates was a nice thought and appreciated. Overall an enjoyable stay even in a very wet weather period we were able to enjoy a relaxing week. We would book again in the future.

The property

Nestled in the pretty village of Castleton, with stunning views across the surrounding hills, is this superb stone annexe.

Little Bargate offers a taste of countryside life with its lovely rural location and quiet roads.

The kitchen is wonderfully-appointed to the front of the cottage, housing all the appliances you could need for a weekend in the countryside.

Gather in the dining room and make use of the large table for your romantic, home-cooked meals, or to plan the day's events.

The lounge offers a welcoming space for couples to curl up together and catch up on your favourite shows with the provided TV, while the gas fire keeps you warm during those chilly evenings.

Upstairs offers a well-presented king-size bedroom, boasting an en-suite bathroom with a bath and walk-in shower, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

Take a relaxing soak of an evening to wash away those tired muscles, or a quick shower of a morning before starting your day.

To the rear of the cottage is a multi-level patio area, where you can sit with a refreshing beverage and enjoy the wonderful country views.

Castleton is ideally placed for exploring the picturesque Peak District location.

Built by Henry II on a hilltop, Peveril Castle, is a ruined 11th century Norman castle overlooking the village, with a delightful picnic area and tons of history to discover inside.

Venture towards Peak Cavern, which is the UK's largest cave entrance with guided tours through a network of caves and unusual rock formations - so much to discover inside.
