A Wonderful Place to Unwind:
Imagine a place where you are welcomed by the warmth of an AGA stove, where at the end of a long day, you can unwind on soft leather sofas in a romantic, oak-beamed sitting room and enjoy all the home comforts and modern conveniences you would expect and more.
Candlelight Cottage is that place! Our spacious cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, (1 double and 1 twin) and has been rated 5 star Gold by Visit England.
Original Features Combined with Modern Luxury:
The spacious oak beamed sitting room enjoys fine views over Litton village green. Chinese prints adorn the walls and there are soft leather sofas in which to relax.
The feature stone fireplace houses a natural coal effect gas stove lending the room an atmosphere of total comfort and warmth. A 32" flat screen colour TV and DVD recorders are provided along with a radio/CD player, iPod docking station, Wi-Fi and a selection of games, DVD’s, maps and tourist information.
Well Equipped Kitchen:
The sunny, south facing dining kitchen is fully equipped with ceramic hob, oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine.
The pine shutters, slate tiled floor and AGA stove give this room a feel of real character and warmth making it the ideal place to cook and dine.
Stairs lead up from the kitchen to the bathroom and two bedrooms (sleeps 4).
A Good Night's Sleep in Guaranteed!
The quality of our beds and little touches such as black out linings on the curtains ensure our guests get an excellent night’s sleep. The double bedroom faces south and looks out over the patio garden and fields beyond. The twin bedded room enjoys views of the village green and Litton Edge, one of the many walks possible from the cottage. The whole village green is planted with spring bulbs. In May, the view is filled with cherry blossom and at Christmas, we look out at the village Christmas tree. Radio alarm clocks, hairdryers and shaver plugs are provided along with a choice of winter or summer weight duvets for your comfort.
The bathroom is fully tiled and features a bath, separate shower cubicle, Edwardian style suite and heated towel rail.
A Great Place to Chill:
A stable door leads from the kitchen out into an enclosed and very private patio style garden. Garden furniture and a BBQ are provided in summer.
Stairs lead out of the kitchen down to the utility room, which houses the deep freeze, and other utility items. Ample space is available here for the storage of luggage and the drying of boots and outdoor clothing. A tumble drying service is also available.
At Candlelight Cottage we have tried to create a rural retreat with a real feel of luxury. Fabrics and furniture have been chosen to complement our Chinese and Thai silk pictures and each room has a charm of its own.
The house is fully centrally heated and hot water is available at all times. All windows have double glazing. Heat sensors, smoke alarms and CO alarms are fitted for your safety and peace of mind.
WEEKLY BOOKINGS: FRIDAY - FRIDAY ONLY
SHORT BREAKS: (MON - FRI) OR (FRI - MON)
For the comfort of all our guests, we operate a strict NO SMOKING and NO PETS policy.
Please be aware that, as in many other old properties, Candlelight Cottage has relatively steep stairs and some low beams. We regret that we cannot accommodate children under the age of 8 years.
Fancy Spending Christmas or New Year at Candlelight Cottage?
There is a lot going on in the Peak District in the run up to Christmas. Local towns host Christmas markets and there are plenty of specialist shops in Bakewell, Ashbourne and Buxton in which to track down unusual presents.
The Christmas decorations at Chatsworth House are amazing and afterwards you can soak up the festive spirit whilst sipping mulled wine and listening to brass bands and carol singers. You can also go carol singing yourself down one of the caves in Castleton.
Litton at Christmas has a sleepy charm of its own. The village Christmas tree is positioned just opposite Candlelight Cottage and on Christmas Eve everyone gathers to sing carols around it.
Candlelight Cottage is dressed for Christmas from the beginning of December and short breaks are available until Christmas week. Often guests come in December to celebrate Christmas early; others come away over Christmas to get away from it all.
There is no better feeling than returning from a walk to wonderful warmth of the Candlelight Cottage AGA or curling up in front of the fire with a glass of wine and warm mince pie. Come and see for yourself!
Around and about you'll find:
• Christmas at Chatsworth House – The house beautifully decorated for Christmas and candlelit.
• Carol singing in the caves in Castleton – Treak Cliff Cavern and Peak Cavern.
• Pantomimes and carol concerts in one of the surrounding cities’ or towns’ theatres – Sheffield, Buxton, Manchester
• Santa specials at Crich Tramway Village or Peak Rail in Matlock
