Llamedos is a really lovely 17 century cottage restored to a high standard and located in picturesque Castleton in the very midst of the Peak District. The cottage's spacious accommodation combines beamed ceilings and other traditional features with every modern convenience. Add its location, in a quiet corner of the village just off the green, to make this a very rare find.
Castleton is a beautiful village, gathered around the church and green and set in a magnificent cauldron of hills. It is also a very interesting village with 'country' shops to browse around, the famous Blue John caverns to explore, Peveril Castle to storm and many a pub and restaurant to visit after a hard days walking.
If you enjoy the countryside how about climbing to the top of Mam Tor to marvel at the views, exploring rugged Edale, or venturing out along the Pennine Way. On more restful days visit Tideswell with its well dressings, the 'Dambusters' Derwent Valley dams or Victorian Buxton. Children will treasure memories of the 'dares' they gave each other in Chatsworth's adventure playground, the exciting underground boating experience in Speedwell Cavern and the wonderful owls and otters in the nearby Chestnut wildlife sanctuary.
A spacious and comfortable beamed lounge with feature stone fireplace, log effect electric fire, T.V., DVD and WiFi. A large and attractive dining kitchen with fitted wood units, cooker, microwave, fridge and automatic washer. A lovely double bedroom with quality oak furniture. A similarly large twin bedroom with en-suite W.C. A bathroom with bath/shower over, W.C. and bidet.
Linen and towels are provided. Central heating and power are included. A cot and high chair can be requested. Parking is available for two cars. Pets and smoking are not permitted. Access for people with disabilities may be difficult.

"This property was the perfect location for our trip to the peaks and was a delight to stay in. The kitchen was well appointed, the entire property was exceptionally clean and the roomy lounge made for very comfortable evenings. Even the neighbours were a huge help. It was a bit of a trick to find the first time, but once figured out it was absolutely fine. I particularly appreciated the off street parking spot - Castleton was very busy and trying to park on the narrow streets would have been a nightmare. The landlady Katy was very responsive to all our questions both before and during our stay. Highly recommended!"

"We spent a week based in Castleton. Llamedos cottage was the perfect place to stay - it is very comfortable and has lots of character - and it was lovely to come back to it after a day's walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside."

"We visited Castleton to go to the carol service in the "Devil's Arse" which was superb and gives the Christmas spirit a kick start. The cottage was very comfortable,homely and well furnished with all you need for a weekend away. The cottage was very clean too. Off-street parking is a bonus as Castleton is very busy and parking is at a premium."

"Visiting Castleton specifically to go to one of the Christmas carol concerts in the Devil's Arse was made all the more special by using Llamedos as our base in the village. We visited with family and enjoyed a walk, meals out and walks around the village. Castleton has been our bolt-hole for years and this is one of the best places we have used in 12 years."
