Oh Castleton!

Castleton is misty, green hills dotted with bleating sheep. It’s a sandwich board outside a pub inviting neighbors and travelers alike. Castleton is muddy paws and muddy boots walking side by side in the early morningIt’s stealing a glance through a cottage window and seeing a newspaper being read--a pot of tea being served…

This quiet and charming town has stolen our hearts. Our second visit to the Peak District felt like our first, and we fell in love again and again. We recommend anyone traveling to the northern part of England to visit Castleton in Derbyshire. Go to Bulls Head and try the mulled wine. If it’s a Sunday, try the Roast. Sample the sweets at the shops. Have some ice cream! Eat a meat pie. 

The climb is steep but walk up the hill to Peveril Castle. See the Caverns. Walk along the public footpaths and follow the stream. When the church bells toll, stop what you're doing and breathe deep. 

Here's a video from our first trip to Castleton so you can see what I mean:

Make the trip if you can, friends! 
Trust me on this one...
