“Don't miss the Swiss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2007

Castleton is a very pretty village in Derbyshire's Peak District, about 15 miles from Sheffield. The Swiss House is a cosy, comfortable B & B on the main road into the village. The hosts Martha and Mary are very friendly and welcoming, with extensive local knowledge about the area. The rooms are very clean, nice furniture, comfy beds (snug duvets) with small TV's and DVD players. The bathroom had a bath rather than a shower, which is probably preferable if you are the hill walking type. There is a small bar on the ground floor with a welcoming fire. The breakfast room is bright and spacious and the food is excellent, the cooked breakfast will really set you up for the day. Last call for breakfast is 9.15am, which if you are going out for a day conquering peaks is probably about right. The whole house has a lived in feel, and I mean that as a compliment. It is friendly, unpretentious and very affordable. We'd stay there again, though I'd suggest that the rooms at the back of the house get less street noise than the one we had at the front.

  • Liked — Smashing location in one of Derbyshire's loveliest villages
  • Disliked — Our room was a little prone to street noise

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2007

We had a very relaxing overnight stay. The room was very comfortable - a home from home but with better views! The breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious. We loved the area and will definitely be visiting again. Thank you. Stella and Kevin Sullivan.
