About the neighbourhood
The picturesque village of Litton lies at the heart of the Peak District National Park. Tideswell, home of the “Cathedral of the Peak” , cafes, shops and supermarket is a mile away. The bustling market town of Bakewell, famous for its Bakewell Pudding is five miles away and the spa town of Buxton, known for its opera house and arts festival is eight miles away. Candlelight Cottage looks onto Litton village green, with its pair of stocks and stone cross. The Red Lion Inn is well known for its excellent beer and food and the village shop provides essential provisions, post office facilities and home-made cakes. There are excellent walks from the door of Candlelight Cottage.
Getting around
A car is preferable but not obligatory, as there are a number of bus services through Litton village and many lovely walks and cycle routes can be started from the door of the cottage.
