“Perfect retreat!”
Reviewed 7 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked Castle Cliffe for a hen weekend for 16 ladies. Communication with the owners was really easy and all of our questions were answered, they were really helpful.
On arrival the owners were there to greet us and show us what we needed to know. There were beautiful fresh flowers and homemade brownies which were such a lovely welcome!
The living accommodation was ample for our needs. Loads of seating in nice big airy rooms. We had everything we needed, the cupboards were well stocked with more than enough crockery etc. We had plenty of hot water, oven space, fridge space... It's a great property for large groups.
It didn't matter which side of the house you stayed on, all the views were amazing.
There is a hotel right over the road which we didn't use but would have been very handy had we not already made plans for the weekend.
On Saturday we went into Bakewell which was only about 10 minutes away and a lovely little town with plenty of shops, cafes and bars.
On Saturday evening we took a bus into Sheffield. Great night out and the journey only took 35 minutes.
There is plenty of parking at the property and a great big field attached which in better weather could have come in really useful for activities.

I'd thoroughly recommend Castle Cliffe. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to explore the beautiful countryside surrounding it!!

Reviewed 4 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Such a fantastic property and great information and communication from the owners.

12 of us had a brilliant weekend. The views are amazing - the walks perfect and great maps and routes left in the house for us.

We had a big group breakfast one morning in the hotel just a walk away- which worked really well but was unnecessary as the house has everything you could want for.

Designed perfectly for entertaining - two dishwashers are always a welcome sight

Loved it and will recommend it to everyone

“Fabulous weekend of celebrations”
Reviewed 25 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Castle Cliffe was the perfect location for our large group stay for a 30th birthday celebration. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed some great walking and the house provided everything we needed for a wonderful time when we were back at home - we were particularly impressed with the dining table where we comfortably sat 24 for the birthday dinner!

Overall a fantastic stay and we are already looking at when we may be able to return in the future!

“Great location to explore the area”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

As an group of 9 couples finding a suitable venue is not easy. We were delighted with Castle Cliffe as there is 9 well decorated room 7 of which are en-suite and 2 with a shared large and very smart bathroom. There is ample space to entertain in the evening. We all sat down to enjoy an evening meal in the long dining room and there was more than enough areas to sit in the three lounges.
The option to walk straight out of the door and onto the Monsal Trail or into the Dales was a real bonus, as was the two pubs in easy walking distance. The owners are very positive people anxious for your stay to be a memorable one. This is a really great venue if you enjoy the countryside and like relaxing with friends.

“Wonderful get together at Castle Cliffe”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed at Castle Cliffe for a large group get together over a long weekend. Everything went really well from the initial arrangements with the owners to the weekend itself. The house was spacious well equipped and felt very comfortable and of high quality but without being posh/precious. There was plenty of space to get together or find a quiet corner. The owners left a large box of delicious brownies and beautiful flowers to welcome us.

We did some lovely walks from the front door and left the cars in the car park for most of the weekend. Just be careful as the dry stone wall around the car park is a little delicate.
