“Delightful, warm and tastefully furnished cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Candlelight Cottage is a delight to stay in and we had nothing whatsoever to complain about. Everything was perfect. Tastefully furnished, warm and inviting and the owners Simon and Jill are extremely friendly and helpful. Litton is a lovely little village with a good pub and local shop.

“Candlelight Cottage at Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed at Candlelight Cottage during Christmas and New Year and it was was a wonderful vacation during the festive period. The owners Simon and Jill had made the place very xmassy with decorations and a beautiful real tree which smelled great. The cottage is fully equipped and very modern whilst retaining its cosy feel with the fire making it very warm and romantic in the evenings. There are really good walks right on the doorstep and the village pub is right across the green and serves very good food. There is a small village shop and we visited the towns of Castleton and Bakewell which are really close by. On New Years Eve there were fireworks in the village which was a nice surprise and a lovely welcome to 2014. We will definitely return to the cottage agin, hopefully very soon.

“Excellent standard of accommodation, fantastic welcome and great attention to detail.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were warmly welcomed and this delightful cottage has everything that is needed for a great stay. Fully equipped and welcome pack with one or two surprises. Village has a really useful shop and it is well situated for touring the surrounding area - lots of interest within a few miles.

“First Class accomodation!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

My wife and I spent over 2 weeks at Candlelight Cottage and loved every minute of it! The cottage was very well equipped, and was very very comfortable. The welcome pack of local produce was a nice touch! I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough, and we hope to be stay again on our next trip to the UK!

“Fantastic cottage and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We booked the cottage at fairly short notice for us and our two children (17 and 19). Everything was exactly as described and immaculate throughout. Loads of local information on everything from places to visit to walking routes. Children only with us a few days so whilst they were there we enjoyed good food, quad biking excellent place too, would definitely recommend http://www.wildparkleisure.co.uk) and a trip to Meadowhall for shopping. Rest of the week included Chatsworth, cycling and more good food. Would certainly recommend this place if you are thinking of booking, based on our experience.

“A beautifully maintained Derbyshire cottage close to some fantastic sights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Candlelight Cottage is extremely well appointed, and owners Simon and Jill have really thought of everything to make the stay as comfy as possible. We're not ramblers but used it as a base to explore, and enjoyed the Tideswell food fair, plus Chatsworth and Haddon Hall - all in a rare window of sunshine.
Extremely comfy bed, loved the kitchen with Aga, and the fact that the Red Lion is a stone's throw away. Tall people watch out for the beams, but it's all part of the cottage's charm.

“Lovely cottage in beautiful Peak District Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The cottage is in a lovely location overlooking Litton village green. We found it spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The welcome basket of local goodies was a very nice touch. The cottage definitely merits its 5 star status. The owners, Jill and Simon, are really welcoming and friendly, and very helpful with local information and advice. Litton itself is a beautiful village, with a well-equipped community shop a stone's throw away from the cottage and the Red Lion pub just opposite, where we had a very good dinner one evening. It's an excellent location for walking, cycling, and visiting many of the Peak District sites.
