“Ideal location”
Reviewed February 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Booked this for a weekend with friends as we love Castleton. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and perfect location. If I had to put a negative I would say that the shower is not for tall people! Very good value.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Yes so true! The thing about 17th century cottages is that the ceilings are very low. We are thinking of pulling out the bath and just having a shower room but I also know that walkers like a soak after a long day out in the hills. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay though. Best wishes, Jane

“Lovely cottage in perfect location”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

The cottage was lovely and warm and cosy. It was kitted out with all that you needed and it was in such a great location with walking right from the door to plenty of places to eat and have a coffee or something stronger.
Would definitely stay again.

“Great little cottage”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a lovely little cottage. Very cozy and nice and warm. Very clean. Two lovely bedrooms, one double bed and one with twin beds. Perfect location in the village, everything on your doorstep. Nice little touches of milk in the fridge and tea, coffee, sugar already in the kitchen. Can't wait to stay again.

“Idyllic cottage”
Reviewed January 21, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

OATCAKE COTTAGE is a beautiful stone cottage oozing with old charm and character and is comfortably furnished. It is located in the heart of Castleton and is close to local pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops selling the famous blue john gemstone jewellery. The location makes it ideal for exploring the Peak District and visiting the numerous showcaves. The cottage has a terraced rear garden with stunning views across to Man Torr and the surrounding hills.

“Quaint cottage in great location”
Reviewed December 18, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Short stay in this very quaint cottage, within short distance of the village centre. Advantage of on-street parking outside. Very clean and tidy and the most stunning views from the back garden, however watch your step getting up there if it's wet. Ideal for walkers and explorers, with copious choices for eating out or just popping to the local pub. Also has WiFi.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your comment about the garden. We have now ordered some railings and hand rails to be installed in April. This will provide a barrier for the two patio areas and make it easier to access the levels via the steep steps, ready for the summer season. I hope you will visit again soon.

“Lovely little cottage! Excellent Location”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had a lovely stay at Oatcake cottage! Would definitely reccommend to friends and family. It is in an excellent location, with shops and pubs less than a minute away and lots of picturesque walks nearby.

Perfect for a laid back relaxing getaway with friends. The cottage itself is well equipped with plenty of storage. Particularly liked the living room with its beautiful fireplace and exposed beams. Ideal for a cosy, warm winter night in.

“Lovely, clean and cosy cottage”
Reviewed November 29, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great location, easy walk to the pubs. Warm clean, with everything you need for a quite peaceful weekend snuggled in the peak district. Will defiantly be coming back, we loved the chocolate coins in our welcome pack, a nice extra touch from the owner.
