This house was a lovely house to stop in. Very close to amenities and some lovely walks on your doorstep. We stayed with family for our 40th wedding anniversary. Its clean and well fitted out. Lovely views from most rooms. The owners were very helpful and couldnt do enough for us. We had fresh bread waiting for us and a bottle of fizz. The only thing i can critisize is if you have young children its not an ideal outside area for them them to run around in but this didnt affect us as our grandchildren were older. Would stop again without a doubt.
House perfect location in Castleton. Short walk into village and shops and Ye Olde Cheddar Cheese pub almost opposite where we had Sunday lunch with so much meat!. Lovely walk over fields and into Hope. Plenty of outdoor clothing shops and some lovely jewellery shops. Peak Caverns well worth a visit. The house itself is really nice. 4 good sized bedrooms and the shared 'Jack and Jill' didn't present a problem. We'll equipped kitchen / diner and good sized lounge. Nice views from kitchen. Only reason 4 stars is because there was a cold draft through skylight window in top floor bedroom.
Talbot house is run by a very nice and helpful couple. A special thank you for the tip about the"secret", narrow road up and down the valley!
Castleton itself has got many great attractions that kept our family with five children in the age 8-24 occupied a whole week. Walks in the mountains, a roadtrip around the valleys, a trip to Manchester, the castle, the caves and 6 genuine pubs with good selections of real ales!
My wife, Clumber Sam, Mongrel Meg and I stayed at Talbot House for 2 weeks in March 2017 and the property was as described, it was both welcoming and cosy. Alan the owner lives next door and he made us very welcome with his friendly manner, he called once to make sure we were settled in and that if we required anything we just had to let him know. Other than occasionally seeing him in passing we were left alone but knowing he was close at hand should anything have gone wrong was a bonus. We would highly recommend a stay at Talbot House.
The house is ideally situated in the village and all amenities are within walking distance, these include six bar/ restaurants, cafes and shops. You can also walk to Speedwell Cavern, Peak Cavern and Peveril Castle which Clumber Sam has also reviewed.
Thank You Alan for a wonderful stay.
Talbot house is modern and well equipped. It is in a good location in Castleton. It is within walking distance of the whole village which includes about one pub for every 20 people that live there, a small store, tea room, blue John gift shops and a fantastic bakery. The nearest supermarket is Morrissons in Chapel en le Frith, about 6 miles away. There is also a lovely Indian takeaway called the curry cabin about 1.5 miles away that delivers.
We were greeted shortly after arriving by the owner Alan. He is extremely friendly and put himself at our disposal straight away.
The house is over three floors as per the information write up with a fantastic kitchen, a cosy front room with large screen TV and wifi. There is parking front and back on a first come first served basis.
Overall we found Talbot House excellent value for money, very clean, modern, decorated and furnished to a high standard and would consider returning if we Holidayed in the area again.
