A charming and unique little castle hidden away in the heart of the Derwent Valley hillside between Bakewell and Matlock in Derbyshire. Gloriously secluded, it can sleep up to 3 people and is a wonderful setting for a peaceful rural retreat and for exploring the Peak District.
The castle was built about 150 years ago as a ‘bothy’ (nurseryman’s cabin) and has recently been converted into the gorgeous little holiday retreat it is today. It has wonderful picture windows, a log burning stove and cosy furnishings.
This part of the world has amazing country walks which you can take right from the castle door, either through the hillside woods or down into super Halldale. You can walk across the fields to the Plough Inn at Two Dales. Or get in the car and a short journey will get you to Bakewell, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and everything the Peak District has to offer.
Directions provided on booking.
