Stayed at Riding House Farm for the second time this August. As always it was excellent. We actually booked both cottages for a family holiday and they are both very comfortable, clean and exceptionally well equipped and the lovely Dave and Denise think of everything that you could possibly need including suggested walks and a torch to help you on the lovely walk down into and back from Castleton. The cottages are very well placed for walkers and you can literally walk out of the farm up to the ridge and on to Mam Tor and beyond if you feel like a challenge. It is also very peaceful on the farm and as it is about halfway up the valley has some lovely views giving us great sunrises and sunsets. There are a number of pubs and restaurants in Castleton that are nice too. All in all a great time and we are definitely going back next year. Thanks Dave and Denise!
