Our first visit to the Peak District ... with many more planned !! Barn Cottage is perfectly located, warm and cosy. For fair weather non road cyclists the trails are ideal. The caverns at Castleton are so interesting and not to be missed. We have so much more we need to see and do. Thank you Lisa and Simon, Essex
