The Heart of England/Peak District
Dramatic gritstone edges, wild heather moorlands and gentle limestone dales make the Peak District National Park one of Britain's best-loved landscapes so no wonder it was Britains 1st National Park. It's renowned for its pretty villages, beautiful scenery, good walkes in the hills and stately homes. The Peak District is perfect for couples or families as it has something to suit everyone whether it's a walk in the hills, caving, hangliding or just pottering.
As a great place for a holiday, Castleton is unmatched even in this lovely part of the Peak District.
With stunning scenery taken as read, memorable walks from our doorstep (just around the corner into Cave Dale and you're away!), marvellous cycling (mountain bikers take note) all around, and the most notable attractions of the National Park within easy reach by car, the village is a delightful retreat at all times of year.
