  • "Our second time staying in Hope Cottage."

    This is a beautiful cottage and it’s in the centre of the lovely village of Castleton. A handy parking space which is fantastic. It’s cozy, nice hot showers, log burner, nice kitchen and very well thought out with dogs in mind. Excellent underfloor tiled floor in conservatory, ideal for damp dogs after using the handy hose outside. Lovely bedrooms and quality bed linen. Nice little welcome pack and fresh tulips. We will definitely be back again. Love the cottage and the village, the walks and excellent variety of pubs and cafes in village all serving delicious food. Can’t think of anything negative. Thanks

  • "Our second stay at Hope cottage, lovely welcome pack and the house was warm and cosy despite the freezing temperatures."

    It is in an excellent central location with all facilities you could want. Dog friendly with a decent sized garden for the area. Everything has been thought of to accommodate walkers. My only suggestion would be to reduce amount of furniture in downstairs lounges.

    Lots of space.Would highly recommend to all. The welcome basket was a lovely start to our holiday.A dressing table to sit at would be great in one of the bedrooms. Better quality mattresses would be a huge benefit too. Beautiful cottage in a stunning location.

  • "The cottage is lovely and cosy very central, we managed to fit 2 cars on the drive, it was spotless and very well equipped, loved the extras like the welcome basket, the Bluetooth speaker was good to have and the underfloor heating in the conservatory was great, only a few negatives, there was no TV in the snug eventhough it shows you one on the pictures which we could have done with it to escape to, the roasting tin is too big and doesn't fit in the oven, the grill pan has no rack and would have preferred some normal size wine glasses, it is a little too clutted as every shelf and draw is full it would have been nice to have been able to use the storage in the snug for our shoes, hats and things also the small double room had 3 draws full of spare towels again would have liked to use them as we were there for a week so had a lot of stuff."

    But that said we have already booked for this New year we loved it and would highly recommend.

    The conservatory is perfect for playing board games on a wet day, and we’d definitely recommend Sunday lunch at The George.

  • "This was a great little cottage ."

    Nicely set out and really homely . Great location and quiet . The cottage is well looked after and once you get the open fire going is really warm . The only issue I would have is that the blinds in the snug are difficult to lower and that the extractor fan over the hob needs looking at as the buttons are loose and a light is missing . Apart from that the family were very impressed and I will definitely look to hook this location again . The welcome basket is very nice and makes you feel welcome .

    It had everything you could possibly need for a home-from-home stay. Fiona was very helpful when I had a couple of queries. The cottage was lovely and clean on arrival and the welcome pack was a nice touch. The village is brilliant for walks from the doorstep and had the added advantage of having plenty of pubs/cafes/restaurants if you didn't feel like cooking. We had a fantastic week and I know it will be a holiday we will always remember.

    Really well equipped and comfortable for an enjoyable stay in the Peak District. Plenty of walks from the village and nice places to eat and drink. The only slight disappointment for us was the garden which doesn’t seem to reflect the photos shown on the website. It doesn’t appear to be well maintained. The top lawn area was really overgrown and the patio is in need of some TLC, but overall, we had a fab time.

    And I mean everything....tin foil, q tips, cotton buds, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, mending kit, toiletries...we didn't have to buy a thing! We loved it, and so did the dogs! So it's a 10 out of 10 from us, and we intend to return again next year. The pubs are all dog friendly and the scenery is stunning. You have views of Peveril Castle from the cottage. The only minus, is that the driveway access is a bit tight if there's a car parked next door and you have a largish car. However, nothing can be done about that! It's one of the best cottages we've ever stayed in, if not THE BEST.

  • "Amazing! What a absolute gem of a cottage."

    It was so well thought out with walkers and dogs in mind. Clean, comfortable beds, lovely rooms, excellently equipped and a generous little welcome hamper. We had a lovely week at Hope Cottage. We wanted to stay forever and we’re sad to leave. It was so warm. The owners certainly don’t skimp on the heating, which was greatly appreciated. The underfloor heating in the conservatory was fantastic. Our little dogs absolutely loved it. Especially good to come in around the back door to take off boots/shoes. The boot brushes outside and the hosepipe again… great for boots and dogs.. then straight into the conservatory to dry off. Castleton is beautiful. Lots of pubs and cafes. Lots of excellent circular walks from the village meant we only used our car once. Thanks for a holiday that will live in our memories for years. We have already booked up to go again next March!

    Dear Rowanne, thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review. We are over the moon that lots of memories were made during your stay in Hope Cottage, that's what it's all about. We hope to welcome you back in the future to make more! Best wishes, Ben & Rob Property Owner

The owners were very generous leaving welcome gifts and plenty of tea towels, hand towels, dishwasher tablets, detergent and cleaning products which when you have a family are essential. We ate at the restaurant 1530 twice and a few of the pubs in the area. The cottage couldn’t have been more perfectly located with a fabulous route to Mam Tor literally on the door step.
