Peak District maps, leaflets and books that you might need, are provided for guests' use and with miles of beautiful footpaths from the front door, the only difficulty is deciding where to go first!

The spacious oak beamed sitting room benefits from fine views over Litton village green. Chinese prints adorn the walls and there are soft leather sofas on which to relax.
The feature stone fireplace houses a natural coal effect gas stove giving the room an atmosphere of total comfort and warmth. A 32" flat screen colour TV and DVD recorder are provided along with Wi-Fi, a radio/CD player, iPod docking station and a selection of games, DVD’s, maps and tourist information.

The sunny, south facing dining/kitchen is fully equipped with a ceramic hob, an oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and a washing machine.

The pine shutters, slate tiled floor and AGA stove give this room the 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 the two bedrooms.

The double bedroom faces south and looks out over the patio garden to the fields beyond. The pine shutters have been retained and the Victorian style double bed, gives the room additional character. This room benefits from a double fitted wardrobe in distressed pine with further storage above. A radio alarm clock, a hairdryer and a shaver plug are also provided. The candelabra lights which are in both bedrooms may be dimmed to add further atmosphere.

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 and in May the view is filled with cherry blossom. Inside, the Victorian cast iron fireplace has been retained as a decorative feature and a radio alarm clock and shaver plug are provided. To ensure your comfort, a choice of winter or summer weight duvets is available.

The newly installed bathroom is fully tiled and features a bath, separate shower cubicle, Edwardian style suite and heated towel rail.

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 deep freeze and other utility items. A tumble drying service is available.Ample space is available here for the storage of luggage and the drying of boots and outdoor clothing.

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.

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.

Litton Village

Litton village is peaceful and unspoiled and life seems to move at a slower pace. The people are friendly and welcoming and the village shop serves delicious home made cakes and local ice cream. Sit outside The Red Lion pub in summer or in front of blazing open fires in winter and enjoy the superb quality of its food and beer. There is everything you need here for an unforgettable holiday. So easy to reach by public transport or by car, Candlelight Cottage, Litton is the perfect place to take a break and spend time with someone special.

Lying at 1,000 feet above sea level, almost at the very centre of The Peak District National Park, Litton offers all the advantages of a peaceful small village, whilst being only a 20 minute drive away from the towns of Buxton and Bakewell or the beautiful stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. Superbly located in the midst of breathtaking scenery typical of the White Peak area of limestone dales, the village also provides an ideal base from which to visit the wild moors and grit stone outcrops of The Dark Peak.

There are many excellent walks from the village, especially down Litton and Tideswell Dales to reach the River Wye near Water cum Jolly, or through Tansley and Cressbrook Dales to Monsal Dale and the famous viaduct at Monsal Head.

Across the fields from Litton, are the spectacular limestone dales of Tideswell Dale, Tansley Dale, Ravensdale and Cressbrook Dale. Cressbrook Dale is an SSSI or Site of Specific Scientific Interest, renowned for its exceptional wild flowers.

Things to Do


The Peak District is famous for the variety of its scenery, ideal for a huge range of outdoor activities including walking, cycling, water sports, caving, climbing and potholing. To the north lies the rugged and dramatic Dark Peak with its moorland and grit stone. In stark contrast are the green fields, rolling rivers and flower filled dales of the limestone White Peak.


The Peak District  and surrounding area is rich in stately homes, museums, craft centres, theatres, music venues, festivals, well dressings and much more.

Local history

There are ancient and historical places to visit all around  the Peak District. From prehistoric sites like Arbor Low and Creswell Crags, to the industrial sites of Masson Mills and Crich Tramway Village.

Market towns and villages

The towns and villages of the Peak District are wonderful places to wander and browse. From the busy market town of Bakewell to the plague village of Eyam there is lots to see and experience.

There are countless visitor attractions in the area; far too many to mention here. At Candlelight Cottage we provide organised folders full of leaflets covering museums, theme parks, gardens, arts and crafts, railways, music and the arts, food and drink and shopping to name but a few. If there is something special you want to do during your visit, do let us know beforehand. We will be only too willing to help with information or put you in touch with other organisations.
