We thoroughly enjoyed our first Stay at the cottage and would definitely recommend it. We stayed for a week as we wanted to do some walks and explore the Peak District. The location is great with its local pub and village shop and the cottage is full of traditional features and character. Candle light was extremely well equipped with all mod cons and was very clean, cosy and comfortable, great to return to after a full days walking! The owners have taken the time to provide lots of information regarding walks, maps, leaflets and books on the ar...

Our second visit to Candlelight Cottage and every bit as lovely as we remembered. The cottage is so well equipped - we didn't want for anything. Very comfortable and exceptionally clean The cosiness of the kitchen with the AGA and the wonderfully comfortable living room complete with Christmas tree and the wood burner made it very difficult for us to leave! Despite the weather being inclement we found plenty of places to go and for the days when the weather allows there are lots of walks from the doorstep. We are now looking forward to our next...

Candlelight cottage was a comfortable, clean, and cosy base from which to get out and explore a bit of the Peaks. Well situated for walking and towns, easy to find, and well equipped: I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a trip to the Peak District. We loved the woodburner, Aga, and modern bathroom. The Red Lion pub opposite did good food. Thanks Simon and Jill

After too long a gap we returned to this cottage for a second time. It was just as lovely as we remembered. Very well appointed and equipped we were cosy and comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It is spotlessly clean and well situated for exploring the area. Simon and Jill are terrific hosts and we felt very well looked after. The welcome pack was a bonus too. All in all a tip top visit.

The cottage is so homely and thoughtfully designed that you have many luxury's to hand. Beautifully soft bedding in pretty bedrooms with mattress toppers and warm quilts aid a really good nights sleep. Nearly everything you can think of, is in the kitchen for budding chefs or choose,to eat out in the excellent pub opposite your front door or any of the local eat...

We have just returned from spending a week in Candlelight Cottage in Litton, Derbyshire. The cottage is warm, comfortable and very well equipped. It was refreshing to have basic items provided such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, cooking oil etc. Simon, the owner, met us at the cottage, was welcoming and gave us a helpful tour round showing us how to manage the heating system etc. A tasty welcome pack was provided and fresh flowers placed around the cottage was a lovely homely touch - all making us feel very welcome. There is lots of...

We have had a fantastic week in Candlelight Cottage. It was our first trip to the Peak District and we could not have chosen a better location for exploring the Peaks. The cottage has everything you could wish for and is really cosy and comfortable. The Red Lion opposite is great and the village shop very handy. We will certainly be returning to such a lovely "home from home"
