This is THEE absolute most cosy, character filled, inviting Cottage, in thee most beautiful setting and quintessential village!!! From the time we contacted Johan to sort our booking to the time we pulled the door latch closed for the last time, we were in the best of care!! We enjoyed a wonderful four days in beautiful Castleton, our first visit! The cottage is more dear than the photo’s reveal! We were welcomed with lush homemade scones, strawberry jam, clotted cream and a fresh bottle of milk for a warming cuppa!! Even our two little dogs were welcomed with a plush bed, towel, water and food dishes; so kind you allow dogs, and yet there isn’t a hint of dog in the place! The cottage is quaint and perfectly quirky, stepping back in time with subtle modern day conveniences. We enjoyed a wood burner, comfortable beds, Jacuzzi bath tub, great cookware and crockery, a dishwasher, washer/dryer, Gaggia espresso maker and a gorgeous Aga cast iron stove…great for cooking and baking! There is a HUGE television with all the amenities you could imagine, as well as an expansive DVD library!! The television reception skips just a wee bit from time to time, but that’s to be expected surrounded by breathtaking hills in a remote location, and really, telly just isn’t that important when you have all this comfort and beauty! The village is all but a minutes walk away with plenty of pub and restaurant options as well as great shops! The Cavedale walk is at your doorstep, as is Peveril Castle and numerous caves (Blue John Gems) and hillsides!! Thank you, Johan, for providing such an outstanding getaway, we hope we’ll always have it to return to!!!
