Description

Michill Cottage can be found on a quiet lane off the old market square in the beautiful and popular honeypot village of Castleton. Dating back to the 17th century, this stone-built, cosy, terraced cottage, typical of its era and with original features such as oak beams, offers warm and welcoming accommodation in the heart of the Peak District National Park. A perfect location to give your car a rest, Castleton is home to a wide choice of cafés and inns (many of which are dog friendly), in addition to a local village store, all of which are just a short stroll from the door. Walkers, runners and cyclists of all abilities can also embark on a good variety of routes directly from the cottage, including the limestone gorge of Cave Dale which is just a 5-minute walk away. The views of the surrounding area are simply stunning, and Castleton is also home to a variety of tourist attractions including four underground show caves and Peveril Castle, perched high on a cliff. It makes a great base for visiting surrounding attractions including Bakewell, Buxton and the National Trust’s Lyme Park and Chatsworth House all of which can be reached in around half an hour. For thrill seekers Britain’s premier theme park Alton Towers can be reached in around an hour. Shop 550 yards, pub and restaurant 350 yards.

About the local area

Located within The Peak District National Park, this area includes Winnatt's Pass and Mam Tor in the west, the Edale Valley where the famous Pennine Way starts, Ladybower Reservoir where they filmed `The Dambusters' and south following the River Derwent to Hathersage.

The Hope Valley has some of the prettiest villages in the Peak District including Bamford close to Ladybower and Derwent Reservoirs, Hope at the junction of the River Noe and Peakshole Water where the Edale Valley joins the Hope Valley and Castleton, famous for Peveril Castle and surrounded by Mam Tor, Winnats Gorge and Cave Dale.

Castleton is one of the most popular and pretty villages in the Peak District. Set in the midst of beautiful scenery it has lovely walks and a ruined Norman castle; Peveril Castle first built in 1080. Around the village square are some fine old cottages, pubs and the church. The natural caverns of Cave Dale and Peak Dale are reached from the top of the main square and several shops in the village sell `Blue John' (a local Fluorspar), the ideal holiday souvenir.

Visitors can leave the car behind and travel the length of the Hope Valley by train; The Hope Valley scenic railway stops at Grindleford, Hathersage, Bamford, Hope and Edale villages.

Like much of Peak District this area is popular with walkers, of particular note is Mam Tor, with its hill fort and wonderful views in all directions and of course the Pennine Way.
