“A really friendly welcome in a splendid location”
The cottage is well equipped with everything you could want and more and is in a stunning surrounding. We were given a friendly and generous welcome, and nothing was too much trouble for the owners - we could not have enjoyed our stay more.

Cosy and charming south-facing cottages that we have now visited 3 times. I guarantee that once you have stayed here you will want to return time and again. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The cottages are equipped with everything that you could possibly need. There is a washing machine and dryer available. Outside there are tables and chairs and a gas barbecue, and another small and very pretty garden with benches. You will receive a warm welcome on arrival. This really is the place to stay in beautiful Castleton.
