Location description from owner

The England region

In 1951 the Peak District became the first of Britain's National Parks and covers 555 sq miles of diverse countryside, reaching into 5 counties (Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Yorkshire & Gtr Manchester), and is one of the most popular and accessible National Parks in the UK. It has 1,600 miles of public rights of way and 65 miles of off-road dedicated cycling and walking trails, making it ideal for holidaymakers who love being outdoors and active in the beautiful countryside.

It's landscape is made up of impressive gritstone edges (the Dark Peak), steep limestone dales (the White Peak), 195 sq miles of moorland, rolling hills and farmland (South West Peak). Its highest point is Kinder Scout at 636m (2086 ft), and its tallest cave is the Titan Shaft (141.5m/464ft) located in Castleton, famous for its Blue John mines. The Titan is taller than the London Eye, and is the largest known shaft of any cave in the British Isles, discovered by local cavers on 1st Jan 1999.

The Peak District has many lovely towns and villages. The market town of Bakewell, famous for its Puddings (said to have been invented by a lucky mistake made by an 18th century kitchen maid!), is home to one of the UK's most important agricultural markets. Castleton is famous for its caves, Blue John stone and Mam Tor - the shivering mountain. Eyam, the Plague village, Hathersage (reputed grave-site of Robin Hood's friend Little John), Tideswell, home to the Cathedral of the Peak and Tissington (close to the Tissington trail) are all within a few miles of The Cotton Loft. The most popular activities in the Peak District are walking, climbing (world-class climbers train here), cycling, mountain-biking, caving, angling, photography, nature-watching, gliding, visiting historic houses (Chatsworth House & Haddon Hall to name a couple), country pubs and tea-rooms. Well-Dressing, originally a pagan custom to honour the water gods, is now a summer tradition in dozens of villages, where the villagers decorate their wells or springs with natural, ephemeral pictures made of flowers, nuts, twigs and berries, pressed into designs in clay. Well-dressing weeks also include village carnivals and are a lovely time to visit the Peak District National Park.

Litton

With a village green, old stone monument and stocks, Litton is described as 'a little gem of a White Peak village, set in glorious countryside'. Originally a lead miner's village, and home to a stocking-making industry in the 18th century, locals will tell you that it's "1000 feet up, minus a boy scout!", and with its pretty greens, charming cottages and fabulous walks from the doorstep, Litton evokes the true essence of the Peak District.

Just a few strides up the road from the Cotton Loft, which is located in the centre of the village, is the local village pub, the Red Lion, which is a fine old inn serving real ales (go easy on the 'Absolution' ale!) and a good choice of food. The community-run village shop stocks all your essentials and the village also has a Village Hall, small Primary School (Ofsted rated 'excellent') and two churches. Well-dressing is in late June each year and is well worth a visit. Tideswell (Cathedral of the Peak) is one mile away and offer 4 pubs, a Co-op open till late, a fresh fruit and veg shop, a butchers and several cafes/delis/sandwich shops and other local amenities. We believe strongly in local area sustainability - after all, that's what keeps small villages alive! - and actively encourage guests to shop and dine locally if possible. The market town of Bakewell is 7 miles away, the spa town of Buxton (home to the Opera House, one of Britain's leading receiving Edwardian theatres) is 9 miles, Castleton is just 8 miles and the stately homes of Chatsworth House (9 miles) and Haddon Hall (10 miles) are both within easy reach. Chesterfield with it's' Crooked-Spire' church and links to the M1, is 16 miles. The city of Sheffield is 18 miles and the Meadowhall shopping mall is 21 miles. Manchester is 32 miles and for thrill-seekers, Alton Towers is just 27 miles from the Cotton Loft.

“Comfortable relaxed stay in a stunning location”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

We had a fantastic stay and found the Cotton Loft well equipped, clean and warm. We were made to feel really welcome. The village location is great with just a quick walk to the shop and pub. Thank you to Julie and Steve and hope to come back soon. Rich and Mike

Owner's reply: Thank's to you both for your lovely review. It was great to meet you, and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay, the location, felt welcomed and we hope to meet you both again soon. Many thanks.

“Clean, spacious, friendly, great location”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2016

Julie and Steve Nash were extremely friendly, helpful and gracious. I was a bit lost on the country roads and they helped me out by letting me use their GPS NavStat.(talk about generous!) It was a real time saver for me. The town's location was perfect for me as I was there to do the Peak Walks and there are some of the best in, around and quite near their wonderful rental. I had a great time even with the temperamental English weather! I highly recommend the Cotton Lofts.

Owner's reply: Thank-you so much for your kind review and it was a pleasure to meet you. You were most welcome to borrow the SatNav (we try and help if we can), and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed the area and the accommodation during your stay (even with our inclement weather). Thanks again for choosing The Cotton Loft for your visit to the UK.

“A perfect and well-equipped little place to stay.”
