3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Outstanding Views, Large Riverside Garden
As a family the location is exceptional with loads to do together as a family and as sociable adults. We enjoy being able to walk, climb, paraglide, cycle and relax in and around this quaint village. Our garden is delightful and enables us to relax with a glass of wine whilst watching the sun set over Mam Tor. We are very fortunate to be able to live in such a wonderful place and love sharing this experience, as a holiday home, with our guests. We will be available but not intrusive and, for the length of your stay and rental, the house and garden will be your own personal space. We will meet and greet you and be available for any questions/advice during your stay.
Owner purchased this House in 2015
Why Owner chose Castleton
We moved to Castleton because it is the finest village in the Peak District, Derbyshire. Castleton proudly boasts fantastic pubs, an incredible village bakery, a wonderful local store and magnificent surroundings.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy the benefits of a large private garden where you can dine and admire the views. Or simply sit by the river and watch the sun set over Mam Tor. Relax, unwind and relish the views of the Valley, Hills and Castle.

What a lovely holiday home!
We had a lovely & relaxing time at The Hollies. Great location. Panoramic view. The interior design is very lovely & there's plenty of space. Thanks Ruth & Kevin. We'll certainly recommend your holiday home to family & friends.
Wonderful House in a Beautiful Location
We stayed at the Hollies for a week of walking. The house was perfectly situated for local shops, pubs and restaurants. A number of great walks are easily accessed straight from the doorstep.
The house is stunning and extremely comfortable both inside and out, from the large well equipped kitchen, with sofa and rocking chair, to the beautiful garden bordered by a trickling stream. We can wholeheartedly recommend the Hollies and would love to return again soon. Thanks Ruth and Kevin for your hospitality. Warms wishes, the Winterburn family.
We had an absolutely brilliant stay at the Hollies. Spacious house, lovely views and wonderful garden.
Also very nicely located near the centre of Castleton.
And Ruth is a wonderful person.
Thank you. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome your family to The Hollies. Hopefully we will meet again.

Our visit to Castleton was like having a new home. Nice living rooms, practical kitchen, great views and a garden with river and a field of Easter lamb jumping around and enjoying it
It was lovely to be able to host you at The Hollies. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time here.
Lying in the lee of mysterious Mam Tor, locally known as the 'Shivering Mountain', Castleton is one of the most beautifully-situated villages in the White Peak.
Whether you approach through the dramatic limestone gorge of Winnats Pass or from the Hope Valley, you'll appreciate the fabulous views created by its location on the cusp of the Peak District's breathtaking limestone and gritstone landscapes.
Whatever the weather, Castleton has something to offer visitors of all ages at any time of year. If it's fine and you're feeling fit, climb the steep steps up to the atmospheric Norman ruins of Peveril Castle, completed in 1086 for William Peverel, a favoured knight of William the Conqueror.
Castleton is the only place in the world where the semi-precious stone Blue John, unique to the Peak District and Derbyshire, can be found.
Some of the finest examples - including the largest known single piece of Blue John, The Pillar, can be found in Treak Cliff Cavern, where you can also explore a fairytale underground world of stalactite and stalagmites.
Like Castleton's other show caves, Treak Cliff was once a lead mine. Peak Cavern has the largest natural cave mouth in Europe - large enough for cottages and even an inn to be built inside in previous times. Nowadays the space it used for special events, including Christmas carol concerts.
Speedwell Cavern offers an underground boat ride to the eerie 'Bottomless Pit', while Blue John Cavern, opposite Mam Tor, is the deepest of the caves and also contains examples of Blue John.
You can buy jewellery crafted from Blue John in the village, and Castleton Visitor Centre, with its museum and visitor centre, is a mine of information. Fortify yourself in numerous cafés, tea rooms and pubs before heading off to tackle the Great Ridge Walk, one of the finest routes of its kind in the country.
