Chatsworth House, Buxton, Bakewell and Matlock can be easily reached by car.
The three bedroomed cottage comfortably accommodates up to six people, with a flagstone dining room and homely living room. There is a well stocked kitchen with complimentary teas, coffees and cereals. Family friendly with a high chair, cot, z-bed and stair gates.

Additional parking can be found on nearby roads or at the pay and display carpark next to the visitors centre.
The Peak Room contains a King Sized four poster bed with a wool topped mattress, the Wren Room is a Double bedroom with an ensuite shower. The Cliffe Room overlooks the edge of Cave Dale. Normally a spacious twin room, the two beds can be combined as a Super King bed upon request in advance of your stay.

- Very Good
To be honest Dale Cottage was a bit of a let down. Lovely village with good services, nice welcome, but the cottage simply isn’t as described. The pictures made it look bright and spacious but it is actually quite dark and cramped. Much of the furniture is tired and unsuitable. There was a real shortage of clothes space, and the cupboards throughout the house were crammed with unnecessary stuff, either the owner’s or previous guests’. The “tiered garden” is very unkempt and required crampons to scale the twenty-five steps to reach the outdoor table. While there was plenty of equipment, there were some surprising omissions. No hoover; no serving dishes; no microwave containers and no trays to carry food to that lofty outdoor table. There should be a warning on the door to the en-suite as on two occasions people were locked in due to a faulty catch. Overall, we had a good holiday in Castleton; largely due to the company, the landscape and the very fortunate weather we had.
We had a wonderful stay in Dale Cottage. All prior communication was easy and Lisa met us on our arrival and showed us around.The photos don't do the cottage justice, it is well equipped and the welcome pack a lovely touch. Castleton is a very pretty village and Dale cottage is perfectly placed to walk and explore the Peak District from. I would love to return in the future.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your very kind review, hope you enjoy returning to Castleton in the future. Very best wishes.
“A wonderful house and a great welcome”
I booked the cottage to have a few days away with my family and parents. The house was wonderful. Lisa made us feel very welcome and we were impressed by the food welcome parcel. We would go again!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much, it was lovely to welcome you all to the cottage. Hope you enjoy visiting Castleton again the the future. Best wishes
“New Year at Dale Cottage”
We enjoyed a lovely family New Year , celebration at Dale Cottage . Lisa greeted us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful. The Cottage is warm , comfortable and very inviting after a long winter walk . The location is perfect , great walks from the door and at least 5 pubs on the doorstep .We had a fantastic New Year and would definetly stay at Dale Cottage again !Highly recommend
We booked for one week in January. The house was perfect, basically like a hotel but then self catered. The cupboards were full of breakfasts and essentials. Beds were beautifully made and clean, great mattresses. Water pressure great. Great walks from the door and several lovely pubs minutes from the door! Perfect, perfect in every single way. Thank you! Even the freeview was brilliant and great wifi connection.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review. It was lovely to meet you all. Best wishes
