Litton is small village centrally located for many tourist attractions in the local area. It offers plenty of walks straight from the front door and so is ideal for walkers or cyclists. The cottage is so homely and thoughtfully designed that you have many luxury’s to hand. Beautifully soft bedding in pretty bedrooms with mattress toppers and warm quilts aid a really good nights sleep. Nearly everything you can think of, is in the kitchen for budding chefs or choose,to eat out in the excellent pub opposite your front door or any of the local eateries. Weather poor? Read books, play games, watch dvds, listen to music.. it is all provided for you. Need to update your Facebook? Free WiFi is provided but beware mobile phone coverage can vary. I personally liked that, as we had quiet, undisturbed holiday. Clothes dirty or wet? Wash and dry clothes in the cellar utility area, it is even heated for you.
This was my second visit after 8 years and my husbands first visit. I can say that the cottage was just as I remembered it and Simon makes you feel very welcome. He stresses it is your home during your time there and you do feel that.
This cottage is for you if you need a warm retreat, want an active holiday, are a family of four or two couples or one couple. You will feel at home here.
We have just returned from spending a week in Candlelight Cottage in Litton, Derbyshire. The cottage is warm, comfortable and very well equipped. It was refreshing to have basic items provided such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cooking oil etc. Simon, the owner, met us at the cottage, was welcoming and gave us a helpful tour round showing us how to manage the heating system etc. A tasty welcome pack was provided and fresh flowers placed around the cottage was a lovely homely touch - all making us feel very welcome. There is lots of local information, maps, walks and a good supply of books. The cottage is very well appointed on the village green and there are numerous walks from the door. It was great not to have to always use the car especially as weather was snowy. Having said this there are lots of places to visit in the locality including Eyam, Buxton and Bakewell. It was useful to have a village shop and we enjoyed Sunday lunch at the pub. We highly recommend this cottage.
