“Mrs”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Thank you so much for a perfect stay at Oatcake! The only thing we were sorry about was that we'd only booked a couple of nights, next time we will definitely stay longer. We found the cottage very thoughtfully furnished and our stay was extremely comfortable, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud and the sofas were lovely. The cottage was very well equipped indeed, especially in the kitchen, and we enjoyed the DVDs and books, which made for an excellent stay. Demelza (our greyhound) enjoyed her stay too, with a cosy sleeping spot under the stairs in the corner of the kitchen, also stretching out on the floor in front of the fire. Thank you too for the little jug of milk and tea and biscuits left out for us, very welcome after a long drive! :-)

Thank you Hannah for writing such a glowing review. So glad Demelza had a great time as well. The village is very dog friendly. Also, thank you for leaving the cottage so clean. Please do book again for a longer stay.
Best wishes, Jane

“Lovely village, location and cottage”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We enjoyed our stay in Oatcake Cottage very much.
The cottage had everything we needed and more for our short stay in beautiful Castleton.
The cottage was very well situated in the village with great views from the rear garden and very quiet at night for a good sleep.
Thanks very much Jane,
From Anne and Ken, Sydney Australia.

“Cosy, comfy cottage”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This cottage is excellent value for money and we found everything there we needed for a comfortable stay. The cottage was very clean and the little cakes, tea bags and milk on arrival were a thoughtful gesture. The bed was very comfortable with nice quality bedding and pillows. The communication with owner was very good and easy. We enjoyed our first stay in the cottage having visted Castleton for a number of years and would happily stay there again next year.

“Lovely peaceful break.”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is a beautiful little cottage in lovely surroundings. The cottage is clean and very well equipped. The only thing you need to provide is food everything else is provided for you including bedding and a selection of books and DVDs if you just want to chill. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room to hang clothes. There is a choice of bath or shower with constant hot water enabling you to have a hot relaxing bath after a busy day. The cottage is within easy reach of many interesting places and we enjoyed two lovely days out in Bakewell and Buxton. In Castleton itself there are some lovely shops including an amazing sweets shop selling everything you can remember from childhood. There is also a beautiful Church which is open allowing you to spend some time reflecting and looking at the lovely old Bibles displayed there. Altogether a lovely place and I would highly recommend this holiday home to anyone.
