Holiday Rental House
Torside is in the beautiful Peak District village of Castleton, Derbyshire and it was our family home for 12 years. It is a traditional Derbyshire limestone cottage set in its own garden and decorated to English Heritage standards. It is very much a vernacular building with rubble walls, wooden floors suspended over the bare earth and all external walls are lime plastered with pony hair binding it together! The cottage has a double master bedroom and a travel cot can be set up on request. The second bedroom has a single bed and a small double bed. There is a fully equipped beautiful dining kitchen and a cosy living room with x2 2-seater leather sofas, an open fire and smart TV. The cottage is located in the stunning and 'other worldly' Peak Cavern Gorge, beneath a ruined Norman Castle. ...Torside is in the beautiful Peak District village of Castleton, Derbyshire and it was our family home for 12 years.

We really enjoyed our week in Torside Cottage. The cottage is a very comfortable, sensitively modernised historic building. Castleton is a lovely village with great amenities and perfectly located for enjoying the Peak District countryside. We would definitely like to stay at Torside again.
