Lovely cottage in the heart of Castleton.
The dog was well behaved, and refused to go on the furniture (wish he was like that at home!), but the property was kitted out for dogs, with towels, blankets etc.
House was warm, and clean with ample facilities in the kitchen
Short walk to numerous pubs - can not fault "The Cheshire Cheese", and the bakery does fantastic rolls.
Devils Ar*e Cave is worth a visit, and the view from Perevil castle is amazing.
Hope to return soon
Had a lovely 5 night stay in this quaint little cottage and the peace and quiet was much appreciated. The weather wasn't so good but we couldn't fault the lovely warmth to come back to as the central heating proved nicely efficient so that was a nice bonus too. This little gem catered for all your needs and the view from the top of the back patio is truly spectacular. The owner's communication once you had made your booking was spot on and she seemed keen at every opportunity to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. We enjoyed eating at several pubs in the village and felt their prices for the quality of the food was very reasonable as was the service. Also we sampled the homemade bread from the local bakery and again we were not disappointed. A little further afield and a little more expensive was the Samuel Fox but it was worth pushing the boat out as Sunday lunch there was incredible. All in all a very pleasant and happy stay which hopefully we can return to one day.
We had a lovely 4 night stay at Oatcake cottage with our little dog. It was equipped with everything we needed and we appreciated the extras the owner had provided. Castleton is a quaint little village with plenty of pubs, a great bakery (loved their carrot cake) and a general store and also a good base for all the places we wanted to visit like Bakewell, Eyam and Ashford in the water. We went to a lovely old traditional pub in Litton called the Red Lion and had lovely food. The weather was windy, cloudy and chilly during our stay so nice to come back to a cosy cottage each afternoon. Would have loved to sit out on the top tier of the garden but it was just too cold for me this time. A very pleasant stay.
A lovely cosy cottage in a lovely village. Great walking up to Mam Tor and along the ridge. People were all very friendly and many pubs to choose from so you should find one you like. The AND festival was taking place so there were many more people than normal but the laser show was beautiful. The cottage has everything you need with a homely feel rather than a sterile corporate place. We had no problem with parking and have recommend to our friends, Thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend and Jane was very communicative and helpful..
Jane the owner let us come a day early and we really appreciated it because it give us time to settle in and discover the village .
We really loved the cottage and it was in a fantastic place and so close to everything. We walked everyday and the walks were so good and some were hard and some were easy and you could make them long or as short as you wanted .
There was work outside the house getting done by the water board but being out all day meant that it did not bother us .
Plenty of places to eat and all the pubs apart from one allow dogs.
The cottage had a lovely back garden with seating area on about three levels, it was a lovely warm cottage with things to make our stay a good one, would definitely go again and enjoy it as much as we have just have done .
Thank you Jane .
Very nice to stay a few days in this beautiful environment. Comfortable, cosy and lovely cottage with all the needed comfort!
Fantastic views, great cottage a home from home, nice friendly people, Some great walks nice pubs to eat in with dogs welcome in most places.
