Peveril House Location
Castleton is a charming, lively village set in the heart of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by the most stunning countryside. There is something for everyone in Castleton. For outdoor enthusiasts it is the perfect gateway to the moorland and hill trails over Kinder Scout and Mam Tor, and its many cave systems will appeal to adventurous kids of all ages. Visitors who prefer a gentle pace of exploration will enjoy wandering through the narrow lanes of the village, browsing the independent shops and sampling the fare in the many tea rooms, restaurants and pubs.
The ancient ruins of Peveril Castle stand guard over Castleton to the south, providing Peveril House with its name. Peveril Castle was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and is one of England’s earliest Norman fortresses. The keep was built by Henry II in 1176. Now run by English Heritage, Peveril Castle is open to the public. There are breathtaking views from the top of the hill on which it stands.
Castleton also boasts a number of show caverns, some of which are famous for the very rare Blue John stone that is mined only in the village. Blue John is made into fine ornaments and jewellery, and there are a number of gift shops within the village that sell these items.
Castleton has a large and interesting Visitor Information Centre
and café located within the centre of the village, just behind Peveril House. Castleton has a regular, reliable bus service
with the terminus just a minute’s walk from Peveril House. There are three train stations close by, the
nearest being the station in Hope.
Only a few miles drive away are the villages of Bamford and Hathersage. Bamford is known for its dramatic reservoirs: Ladybower, Derwent and Howden. Ladybower Reservoir is famous for being the site of the practice bombing missions for 617 Squadron (known as the Dambusters) before their attack on the Ruhr dams in Germany in 1943.
Hathersage is a great village for outdoor enthusiasts, surrounded by hill trails over the moorland and gritstone crags that make up the countryside. It is overlooked by the mighty Stanage Edge, world famous in rock-climbing circles. Stanage Edge runs for almost four miles roughly north to south, rising to 458 metres (1,503 feet) at High Neb, its highest point.
Just a few miles in the opposite direction lies the beautiful spa town of Buxton, with stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, beautiful parks, quirky shops, top-class theatre, and fantastic dining.
