Hotels in Castleton
The charming village of Castleton is one of the High Peak District's most picturesue offerings. Set in the glorious Derbyshire countryside, this historic settlement is located just minutes from some of the most awe-inspiring geography in the region. Not only that, but it is the ideal base for walking holidays, with several routes in and around the village which are suited to novices and experienced ramblers alike.
A dramatic Norman castle
The fortifications from which Castleton takes its name can be found just outside the village. Overlooking Hope Valley and Cave Dale, Peveril Castle was built at around the same time as the Norman conquest of England by one of William the Conqueror's followers, William Peveril. Though the castle today stands in ruins, it is still worth a visit due to its spectacular views of the village and surrounding countryside. A must for anyone interested in the history of this great county.
A walker's paradise
The walks of Castleton are known across the region for their outstanding scenery, which includes limestone valleys, caverns, mountains and the River Roe which runs through the area. A suitable route for beginners is to start in the village square and take the path towards Cave Dale, turning towards Goosehill and back. The more experienced among you may wish to make the journey up to the top of Mam Tor, which offers some of the best views for miles around.
A welcoming atmosphere
Castleton hotels are well-equipped to deal with the requirements of both walkers and those who simply wish to soak in the local culture. Many of the local pubs provide accommodation in addition to a range of delicious local dishes, while several tea shops are dotted around the village and provide an opportunity to take the weight off your feet for a little while.
The Rambler's Rest Guest House is, as its name suggests, geared towards walking holidays, and offers breakfast as well as an accompanying tea room. The Innkeeper's Lodge, meanwhile, offers comfortable, well-equipped rooms for the duration of your stay.
