  • “Really lovely, clean property done to a very high standard in an excellent location.”

    Really enjoyed our stay, this is probably the best place to stay in Castleton. Does get a bit busy in the area due to the central location and the cafe next door, with people walking down who are presumably trying to get to peak cavern (perhaps a "dead end" sign would reduce this?).

The property

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the Peak District National Park is this charming detached cottage, surrounded by the idyllic setting of Castleton village.

Losehill View provides a welcoming base for a family of three or group of friends to explore the encompassing countryside and historic attractions.

Accessed from the main road, you'll find this beautiful dwelling down an enclosed entryway, lying next to a peaceful babbling stream.

Enter into the homely open-plan living space, kicking off your muddy boots into the storage cupboard, and settle in for an evening of tranquility, sitting in front of the toasty woodburning stove on one of the stylish leather sofas as you sip on a warm drink.

Let your feet feel the warmth of the underfloor heating as you rustle up a meal for three in the well-equipped kitchen, enjoying your scrumptious cooking on the breakfast bar, in perfect view of the TV!

To the outside, you'll find a handy utility space, as well as lockable bike storage within your very own private patio, accompanied by bistro seating where you can enjoy a well-deserved glass of wine on a warm summer's day.

Withdraw upstairs to one of the well-presented bedrooms, making your way up past the lovely floor lighting as a bright Velux window lies above your head, choose between the stunning king-size bedroom with views out to the front stream, or a spacious single room with its own TV, both with ample storage and pretty décor.

Prepare for an exciting day in the sleek bathroom, unwinding in a lazy morning bath, or choosing to use the overhead shower for a refreshing wake up call, before wrapping a warm towel from the heated rail around yourself.

The cottage lies in between a lovely local pub and a delicious café where you can pop in for a morning coffee and cake, or an evening tipple and pub grub, the village of Castleton is a great spot filled with a choice of convenience stores, gift shops, and fantastic restaurants all in walking distance.

Explore popular Peak District interests in close proximity at the magical caves of Blue John, Speedwell, Peak and Treak Cliff Caverns, perfect for a unique day out.

Discover a plethora of outstanding views of unspoilt nature among heaps of walking trails, cycling routes and exciting outdoor activities, making your way towards the challenging Mam Tor hiking hill, and unearthing the historic ruins of the dramatic Peveril Castle.

Venture over to other beautiful Peak District villages at Hope, offering a remarkable escapade into the Pennine Way spanning 268 miles, or visiting Edale or Hathersage and discovering even more boutique and quirky amenities.

Choose a day of thrills at Alton Towers theme park just a car ride away, enjoying the speed of the heart-pounding roller coasters, splashing in the fun-filled waterpark, or lounging in the relaxing spa.

Other attractions worth a visit include the surrounding pretty Peak District villages, as well as the grand sites of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

Delight in an adventurous getaway to the Peak District National Park at Losehill View.
