Peaks Cottages are proud to present two beautiful stone cottages located in the heart of the Peak District, each one providing a perfect base for exploring the very best of the national park. 

Cave Dale Cottage is situated right in the middle of the popular village of Castleton, with its wealth of independent shops, cafés and pubs – not to mention its four spectacular show caverns and a ruined hilltop castle! 

Old Hall Cottage is situated in the equally pretty village of Hope, with its quaint cottages on twisting lanes, surrounded by the most stunning countryside.   


Cave Dale Cottage (Sleeps 4)

Cave Dale Cottage sleeps up to 4 people in two double bedrooms, both spacious, bright and comfortable.  A ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom links the two bedrooms.  All linen and towels are provided.

Downstairs you’ll find a cosy lounge with a wood-burning stove, perfect for relaxing evenings after a day exploring in the Peak District fresh air.  The lounge also has wifi and a Smart TV. 

The fully equipped kitchen contains everything you need for cooking up a feast, and comes complete with a dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine.   

We regret that, for the comfort of all our guests, dogs are not permitted in Cave Dale Cottage.

Location

Cave Dale Cottage is located right at the start of Cave Dale, a steep-sided grassy gorge that’s a haven for walkers.  The footpath through Cave Dale leads on to Mam Tor, the highest peak in this part of the Peak District, and offers the most breath-taking views of the Hope Valley and the Edale Valley. 

Despite having the countryside literally on your doorstep, Cave Dale Cottage is only a few minute’s stroll through the ancient market place into the centre of Castleton.  Castleton is a bustling, vibrant village, with a great many shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants.  It has no less than four magnificent show caverns, all of which are within walking distance of Cave Dale Cottage.  Castleton, as the name suggests, is also home to Peveril Castle, one of the oldest Norman castles in England.     

Slightly further afield but within easy driving distance you’ll find the elegant spa town of Buxton, with its graceful Georgian architecture and renowned opera house.  In the opposite direction is the ancient market town of Bakewell, and the fabulous country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall

The fully equipped kitchen contains everything you might need for cooking at home, and comes complete with a fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Location

Old Hall Cottage is situated in the heart of the pretty village of Hope.  Surrounded by stunning scenery, it’s a perfect location for walkers, climbers and mountain bikers, as well as anyone who just wants to enjoy the peace of this beautiful Peak District location.  Hope has plenty of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as two pubs which serve good food and local ales, one of which is right next to the cottage.
