A romantic home from home with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. Originally a bakery, Oatcake Cottage was built in 1690 of limestone and nestles below Peveril Castle in a quiet, rural backwater in the popular Peak District village of Castleton. It has many original features including two 7 foot long stone troughs which feature on the small forecourt, a grit stone fireplace and exposed beams and trusses. A quaint dining room with French doors leads out into the beautiful private, enclosed terraced garden with spectacular views to Mam Tor where you can sit in the evenings enjoying a glass of wine in the summer house on the top terrace.

But please let the owner know if you will be bringing your pet. The cottage provides unlimited Free Wifi. Arrival from 3.00 pm and departure by 10.30 am. The cottage is centrally heated throughout (guest controlled) with hot water on demand. Seating in the lounge is very comfortable. The two very attractive bedrooms have exposed beams and an original oak King Truss, with pine furniture, made by local craftsmen, comfortable mattresses and quality bedding. Castleton village attracts visitors who flock to see its four caves, Peveril Castle, six good pubs, many quaint tea rooms, a restaurant and a plethora of food and gift shops open all year round. All of the village hostelries serving quality food and ale are run by local residents and are within walking distance of the cottage. Oatcake is part of a friendly community village which basks in quiet and solitude. The welcoming Visitor's Centre and museum provides tourists with all the holiday information they require for an enjoyable stay in the Peak District, providing local information, maps and leaflets on the surrounding area. If you choose, you can park the car for a few days and enjoy the whole holiday entirely on foot, taking in the breathtaking scenery as soon as you leave the front door. Castleton continues to celebrate many ancient local festivals and Oak Apple Day on 29th of May is extremely popular with locals and tourists as they line the streets watching the parade pass through the village. Spring time welcomes the lambs and the village farm opens to welcome visitors to pet and feed the baby animals. For one Sunday in June the local residents open their gardens to the public. This adds to the warm welcoming attitude of residents to tourists. Christmas time is particularly special as the village holds carol singing in two of the caves led by different local brass bands. Lit Christmas trees line the streets, adding to this magical ambiance. More

Loved the cottage. Had everything you needed. Great attention to detail. Warm and cosy. Nice addition with the summer house at the top of the tiered garden. Great views up there, and despite it being January and chilly, we took some mulled wine up there...More

I have stayed before but it was about 8 years ago. Everything was just as good and a few nice updates have been made. Clean and cosy and in the perfect location. Great value for money. Highly recommended. Will definitely re-book.
