“splendid views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

this is spectacular scenery the only downside is the steepness for walking! There is the opportunity to visit one of the caves at the bottom of Winnat's Pass, which also has a car park. Near to Castleton, where there are plenty of places to eat & drink

“Avalanche!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This was spectacular as the day before our visit the pass was closed because of snow. We were in 4WD but other drivers were very tentative.

“Very Pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We drove through the pass into Castleton during the Easter weekend. It was very pretty and I agree with most reviewers that for us it was one of the best views in the Peak District.

It was made more stunning from snow still clinging onto the slopes, must do even as just a drive through.

“Good walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Very different in the snow! Road Closed due to huge snow drifts! A must for all, in search of a good view.
