Cheshire Mews are located in the very centre of Castleton, famous for its castle, caverns and Blue John stone. The area around Castleton is one of the jewels of the Derbyshire Peak District, the magnificent landscape and scenery make it a prime location for walkers, cyclists, climbers, cavers and hang-glider pilots. The accommodation is within strolling distance of the village and its facilities, including a choice of great pubs and restaurants.

There is so much to see and do on your short break or holiday and self -catering, or room only accommodation, not only offers you privacy and peace, it gives you the freedom to explore everything this spectacular part of the Country has to offer. Once you arrive you really don't have to use the car again unless you want to! There are numerous excellent walks that start from the doorstep, and many others within a radius of a few miles.

Cheshire Mews comprises four recently converted, stone-built, 'room only' holiday units, each with its own private and secure, off-road parking space. Breakfast (and other meals) is as close as a walk across the road, to the Cheshire Cheese, or choose from one of the many eateries in the village. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable with en-suite shower room, comfortable double bed, colour TV, desk, tea & coffee making facilities. However, the 'pièce de résistance' of Cheshire Mews just has to be the views.

The area around Castleton is one of the jewels of the Derbyshire Peak District, with lots to see and do and excellent walking, cycling, climbing, caving and hang-gliding. Castleton is justifiably one of the most popular tourist locations in the Peak District. With numerous caverns and deep valleys, or 'dales', carved out of the local limestone rock, the scenery is as dramatic as it is spectacular, an ideal area for walking breaks.

The local caverns are open to the public. Blue John stone, a semi-precious type of Flourspar has been mined from the caverns for centuries. There is excellent walking from Castleton itself, up Cavedale or across to Mam Tor or along the Lose Hill ridge on the north side of the valley. Nearby Edale gives access to Kinder Scout, one of the great moorland areas of England. Only a few miles away lies Stanage Edge, which has hundreds of rock-climbing routes. Mam Tor and the area around it are popular take-off areas for hang-gliders.

Within easy reach lie many interesting places to visit, such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Looming over the village is Peveril Castle, built in 1080 by an illegitimate son of William the Conquerer. The castle is built on the steep edge of Cavedale for its natural vantage point. Beneath the castle is Peak Cavern, the largest natural cavern in the country. The local towns of Buxton, with its Opera Festival, and Bakewell, with its cattle market, are well worth a visit.
