Description

Weekly bookings FRIDAY to FRIDAY only.

Off Peak Short breaks: FRIDAY to MONDAY or MONDAY to FRIDAY.

Rated 5 star GOLD by the English Tourist Board, Candlelight Cottage accommodates up to 4 people in great comfort. Perfect for romantic retreats, honeymoons, weekend breaks, walking and sightseeing holidays, the cottage is a home from home, equipped with everything required for a relaxing Peak District holiday.

The cottage, which overlooks the green in the peaceful, unspoilt village of Litton, has been renovated to a very high standard, is spacious and beautifully furnished throughout. Litton boasts an excellent pub and village shop. Many beautiful walks and cycle routes begin at the door of the cottage! Our strict NO pets policy makes Candlelight Cottage particularly suitable for allergy sufferers.

Candlelight Cottage is situated in an area of great natural beauty at the very centre of the Peak District National Park, within easy reach of all the major attractions. Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Buxton are only a 15 minute drive away. An ideal base for sightseeing, walking, bird watching, fishing, caving, climbing, cycling, gliding or simply getting away from it all.

The spacious oak beamed sitting room has soft leather sofas in which to relax in an atmosphere of total comfort and warmth. Free Wi-Fi, a TV and DVD recorder are provided, along with an iPod docking station, radio/CD player and a selection of DVD’s, CD’ s, games, maps and tourist information.

The sunny, dining kitchen is fully equipped with ceramic hob, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. The AGA stove is perfect for slow cooking and its welcoming warmth makes this room the ideal place to cook, dine and chat. The utility room houses a deep freeze and other utility items. There is ample space here for drying boots and outdoor clothing. A tumble drying service is also available.

The light and airy double bedroom looks out over the patio garden and green fields beyond. Pine shutters, a Victorian style double bed and huge distressed pine wardrobe give the room real character. The twin bedded room enjoys wide views of Litton village green and Litton Edge, one of many beautiful places to walk from the cottage door. Radio alarm clocks, hairdryers and shaver plugs are provided and to further ensure your comfort, a choice of pillows, winter and summer weight duvets is available.

The fully tiled bathroom includes a bath and separate shower cubicle. Outside, the enclosed and very private patio style garden is sunny and sheltered. Garden furniture and a BBQ are provided in summer

A generous welcome pack of local goodies, in addition to tea, coffee, sugar, bread, milk, butter and fresh flowers is provided. A variety of extras including washing up liquid, toilet rolls, soap, washing powder and dishwasher tablets are also included. There are no hidden extras. Linen and towels are provided, the house is fully centrally heated and hot water is available at all times.

“Candle light Cottage, Litton”

Reviewed 15 Mar 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our first Stay at the cottage and would definitely recommend it. We stayed for a week as we wanted to do some walks and explore the Peak District. The location is great with its local pub and village shop and the cottage is full of traditional features and character. Candle light was extremely well equipped with all mod cons and was very clean, cosy and comfortable, great to return to after a full days walking! The owners have taken the time to provide lots of information regarding walks, maps, leaflets and books on the area and the attention to detail was much appreciated. Finally, we were greeted with a very warm welcome from Simon on arrival and loved the locally sourced goodies in the welcome pack!! Thank you - We would definitely stay at Candle light Cottage again.

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to meet you both and to have you to stay. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We're so glad you enjoyed your time here and we hope you'll come to see us again. Simon has lots more suggestions for good walks and plenty of places to recommend for tea and cake afterwards! With all good wishes to you both, Jill and Simon.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 16 Dec 2018

Our second visit to Candlelight Cottage and every bit as lovely as we remembered. The cottage is so well equipped - we didn't want for anything. Very comfortable and exceptionally clean The cosiness of the kitchen with the AGA and the wonderfully comfortable living room complete with Christmas tree and the wood burner made it very difficult for us to leave! Despite the weather being inclement we found plenty of places to go and for the days when the weather allows there are lots of walks from the doorstep. We are now looking forward to our next visit. Thank you to Jill and Simon for thinking of everything and for the help and suggestions for places to visit.

Owner's reply: It was lovely to have you back and we're glad you had a good time in spite of the weather. Until next time! Best wishes, J and S.

“The perfect base for a wet weekend in the Peaks”

Reviewed 6 Dec 2018

Candlelight cottage was a comfortable, clean, and cosy base from which to get out and explore a bit of the Peaks. Well situated for walking and towns, easy to find, and well equipped: I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a trip to the Peak District. We loved the woodburner, Aga, and modern bathroom. The Red Lion pub opposite did good food. Thanks Simon and Jill

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We're really glad you enjoyed your time here in spite of the weather. At least the cottage is warm and cosy, when the weather outside is anything but! The great thing about our "log burner" is that it is a gas stove; all the atmosphere but with instant heat and absolutely no mess!! We hope you'll come back and visit again. You're always welcome. Best wishes, Jill.

“A wonderful, cosy, quiet retreat with everything laid on.”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2018

This was our first time in The Peak district and the central location in a quiet village was just perfect for all the exploring and walking that we did. To return to the Cottage after a full day out was great because you just knew that everything worked and the comfy chairs and bed beckoned to complete the experience. The comprehensive level of equipment, cleanliness, well thought out information folders and Simon's personal introduction and recommendations all made for a very good holiday.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us and for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you and we hope we will see you again one day. In the meantime, all the very best, Jill and Simon.

“A well equipped holiday cottage”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2018

Candlelight Cottage in Litton is a characteristic and well equipped holiday cottage. Owners Jill and Simon Wills did everything possible to make sure your stay is as comfortable as can be. We felt at home straight away. Litton is centrally located in the Peak District, which makes it easy to visit every part of that area. We would recommend a stay in this cottage and we're certainly planning to book again. Liduin and Rob the Netherlands

Owner's reply: Dear Liduin and Rob, It was a pleasure to meet you both. We are delighted that you want to come back again and we hope it will be soon. Heel hartelijk bedankt en tot ziens! Jill and Simon

“Very comfortable cottage in ideal location for exploring the dales”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2018

This is a lovely, comfortable cottage with every possible amenity provided! Litton village is an ideal location for exploring the nearby dales and beyond - there are plenty of great walks in the local area without the need for a car. There is an excellent pub - the Red Lion - directly across the green. We had a great time here, and have already booked to come back next year.

Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. It was great to meet you both and we look forward to seeing you again in August 2019. Until then, all the best, Simon and Jill.

“amazing find”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2018

The cottage was an amazing find in an area we did not know never having been to the Peak District before. Compact and cosy with a great welcome from the owners. Ideal for two for a few days away and the friendliness of the area means that we will be back in the near future. There is also an excellent fish and chip shop in the nearby village of Tideswell called Elliots

Owner's reply: Thank you for this lovely review. We're so pleased you enjoyed yourselves.The chippy in Tideswell is a Wills family favourite too!! Do come back and see us soon. Very best wishes, Simon and Jill.

“Anniversary break away”

Reviewed 18 May 2018

They say that repeat business is the best business. This is why we have already booked for 2019!! This is an outstanding cottage in an outstanding village with an outstanding pub. The tranquility is very special in any weather. Everything whether rain shine or tempest is available at this cottage. This includes maps for the walker since there are wonderful walks from the village. In fact you can quickly immerse yourself into village life. A wonderful stay and a special thank you to Simon and Jill for their kindness and for being so thoughtful We are already looking forward to 2019

Owner's reply: Dear Philip, Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are delighted you had such a good time and that you want to spend your next anniversary break at Candlelight Cottage too. We will look forward to seeing you again next May. In the meantime, all the very best, Simon and Jill.

“Return visit to this lovely cottage”

Reviewed 2 May 2018

After too long a gap we returned to this cottage for a second time. It was just as lovely as we remembered. Very well appointed and equipped we were cosy and comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It is spotlessly clean and well situated for exploring the area. Simon and Jill are terrific hosts and we felt very well looked after. The welcome pack was a bonus too. All in all a tip top visit.

Owner's reply: Dear Alison and Colin, Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. It was great to have you back and we are delighted that you had such a good time. You are always welcome and we hope to see you again before too long! Very best wishes to you both, Simon and Jill.

“Brilliant”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2017

We have had a fantastic week in Candlelight Cottage. It was our first trip to the Peak District and we could not have chosen a better location for exploring the Peaks. The cottage has everything you could wish for and is really cosy and comfortable. The Red Lion opposite is great and the village shop very handy. We will certainly be returning to such a lovely "home from home"

Owner's reply: Thank you for this lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future. Very best wishes, Simon and Jill.
