  • "We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend in Candlelight Cottage."

    The cottage itself was really clean and warm, and the Christmas tree was a special addition that made it seem even more inviting! We particularly enjoyed the comfort of the sitting room, the log burner is a lovely touch. The kitchen was very well equipped but we did also very much enjoy the food and atmosphere in the Red Lion across the green! The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and there was loads of wardrobe space. It was ideally situated for walks from the doorstep. All in all we had a fabulous break and definitely hope to return to Candlelight Cottage in the near future.

    Dear Stephen, We are pleased you had a wonderful stay at Candlelight Cottage and would be delighted if you chose to return in the future. Best Wishes, Pam and David Property Owner

  • "A delightful cottage that was very clean,comfortable and cosy."

    It was very well equipped and the furnishings, linen, utensils and crockery were of a high standard and good quality. The location was peaceful with a lovely views at the front and rear of the property. We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere in the Red Lion pub and the local shop had delicious homemade cakes along with anything else you might need. We didn't have to travel far to enjoy, Tideswell, Hathersage, Upper Burbage and Castleton. Picturesque villages and great walks we enjoyed on our weekend break. Candlelight cottage is by far the best cottage we have stayed in and would highly recommend.

    Dear Helen Thank you very much for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Candlelight Cottage , and enjoyed the surrounding area, that has so much to offer . Best wishes Pam and David Property Owner

    Everything was spotless, comfy beds and equipped with everything we needed. The welcome pack with goodies and fresh milk was very thoughtful.

The property

An exceptionally well equipped clean and comfortable cottage, in an idyllic location in the Heart of the Peak District National Park.

Candlelight Cottage overlooks the village green of the delightful village of Litton, ideal for a family looking to explore wonderful Derbyshire.

Be welcomed into this quaint cottage, with historic features throughout, an enclosed courtyard, and plenty of space to make yourself at home.

With ample amenities, a gas AGA and a lovely cottage feel, the kitchen/diner caters to your culinary needs, and allows guests to enjoy a hearty meal at the dining table.

Afterwards, retire to the characterful sitting room threaded with wooden beams, and warm your feet beside the gas fire as you catch up on your favourite TV shows.

When sleep calls, ascend the stairs and freshen up in the contemporary bathroom, choosing between a warm shower and a soak in the tub, before cosying up into one of the two beautifully presented bedrooms, with options including a double with countryside views and a twin overlooking the village green.

When the sun is shining, make the most of the delightful rear courtyard, an enclosed space with colourful shrubs and furniture ideal for alfresco dining over a glass of fizz as guests reflect on the day’s adventures.

Litton is a delightful village settled into the centre of the Peak District, offering a lovely pub, The Red Lion, and a Post Office for your holiday essentials.

For more amenities, head over to Tideswell, or try out some of the local countryside walks.
