We stayed at the Riding House Farm in the Milkmaid Cottages in the middle of January for my 50th birthday celebrations. To be honest my partner couldn't of chosen a nicer place to stay. Everything about the weekend was superb. The accomodation had everything you could need. Large spacious lounge with downstairs shower & toilet & a lovely presented bedroom...

We have just returned from a week at Riding House Farm celebrating the New Year. We stayed in Shepherd's Cottage which sleeps four and is a very pleasant place to spend time. Booking couldn't have been easier. Denise and Dave are wonderful hosts and incredibly hospitable. Facilities are what you would expect from a top range Cottage. Castleton is a...

I had phoned every single Bed and Breakfast in the area for the weekend. All full. I had to plot a countryside clue hunt for an upcoming murder mystery event in Hathersage (I run a Murder Mystery Events Company - To Die For...Murder Mystery) and I only needed to stay in the area for one night. I was getting desperate...

Having just made our 3rd visit to Riding House, a review is overdue. There are 2 cottages - Shepherd's (for up to 4 people), and Milkmaid's (for 2). This review covers both as we have now stayed in both. The cottages form part of a farm, located approximately 20 minutes on foot from the village of Castleton, which has pubs,...

My wife and I have stayed here multiple times and always have a great a experience. The cottage feels like home and has everything you need and is located on the farm which isn't far from the centre of Castleton. Denise and David are some of the nicest people I've ever met and always make us feel so welcome everytime...

Shepherd's cottage was excellent with facilities to suit all of our needs whilst travelling for 9 weeks around Britain and Ireland and so far away from away from home. We can understand why so many guests come back year after year. It is located centrally to the many attractions, walks and sites that the Peak District has to offer.

Lovely cottages in a superb location with fantastic views over a magical valley. Direct views of the castle, the hills and the town. Walks all around it and pubs galore in the town. The cottage is warm and excellently furnished. Very good bathrooms, fully kitted kitchen. Warm, comfortable beds. Good parking. Free sat Tv and good wi-fi. Great hosts in...

Would highly recommend these holiday cottages. They are in a stunning location and are immaculate. Just pack your clothes and get in the car..... you won't need anything else - towels, tea towels and even a dressing gown is provided for you. Castleton is lovely and a short walk away - just down the lane. With at least four dog...

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay with Denise and Dave in Shepherds Cottage. We stay in lots of cottages around the country, but this must be amongst one of the best. Everything has been thought of right down to the bottle of bubble bath! We had a lovely warm welcome and we felt at home straight...
