I spent five nights at The Rambler's Rest Guest House in the beginning of July and would recommend it highly. Claire and Robbie are warm, welcoming and lovely hosts. I had a rather aggravating drive to Castleton and Claire was lovely when I called to say I would be quite a bit later than my stated arrival time. And it went uphill from there. Upon arrival I was welcomed warmly, introduced to the family who were checking out the recently opened cafe and shown up to my room.
The room was an en-suite double with a view of the mill stream. It was the perfect size for me though might be snug for two visitors. There are larger rooms. The en-suite had everything you need though again due to space restrictions was not large. I did not find this to be an issue though. There is wifi though the signal was intermittent in my room.
The parking lot across the lane from the house is quite handy as parking is difficult in Castleton unless you pay at the visitors lot.
Breakfast was from 8:30-9:30 which suited me as I was on vacation and in no rush. Plenty of options for cereal, fruit and yogurt. I did not have a full cooked breakfast but from the comments of the other guests it was delicious. Claire and Robbie's son Tom was my server as he lent a helping hand before school.
As mentioned they have opened a cafe this summer and I can attest to the deliciousness of the carrot cake and the fruit scones. I am sure all the other offerings are just as tasty. Next time I am in Castleton I will be sure to try some of them.
I found Claire and Robbie to be very helpful and always willing to assist with questions, suggestions for things to do and even an phone when mine would not work. I have already mentioned Rambler's Rest to my friends in the UK and am sure that if I find myself in Castleton in the future I will be booking in with them
