About the property

Tucked away on a quiet side street at the mouth of the historic Peak Cavern rests this delightful pint-sized holiday home, Rose Cottage.

Offering a snug and intimate setting, Rose Cottage is the perfect choice for romantic retreat to the Peak District.

Stepping inside, you're welcomed into an open-plan living space, traditionally decorated with exposed wooden beams, rustic stone flooring and a warming woodburning stove, offering an intimate space to enjoy a cosy night in.

Kick off your walking boots and head through to the kitchen to prepare a heartwarming meal for two, nestling in around the dining table with your significant other to indulge in your culinary delights, before snuggling up on the sofa with bottle of wine for a movie night.

When sleep calls, head upstairs and enter directly into the double bedroom, beautifully-appointed with a light and neutral décor, whilst the antique wood furnishings maintain the property's traditional character.

In the morning, rise as the natural light envelops the room through the period windows, and prepare for a new day with an invigorating rinse in the adjoining shower room.

Located at the top of the Hope Valley and steeped in an abundance of history is the picturesque village of Castleton, tucked away within the beautiful Peak District.

The idyllic town attracts many walkers and outdoor enthusiasts wanting to explore it’s scenic routes that provide expansive views over the Peak District, or challenge themselves to complete the National Trust site of Winnat’s Pass, but if climbing and walking aren’t what you are looking for there is also the option to take a drive through the lush green valleys.

Just a stone’s throw away is the landmark hill of Mam Tor, walkers delight with incomparable views from its summit.
