Torside Cottage, Castleton, Derbyshire

Torside is tucked away in the stunning and 'other worldly' Peak Cavern Gorge. It is a popular film set location due to the immediately dramatic scenery. 

Torside Cottage, Castleton, Derbyshire (Sleeps 1 - 5)

It is a peaceful corner of Castleton, within walking distance of all the village amenities.

Wildlife enthusiasts might see several species of bat flitting about, trout in Peakshole Water (AKA The Styx) and hear Tawny Owls calling in Spring. The nearby Peak Cavern is a Jackdaw roost, which can provide wonderful entertainment on a warm summer's evening.

Torside is the nearest dwelling to Peak Cavern, which has the largest land based cave entrance in the British Isles and is also a SSSI. The cavern was home to one of Britain's last troglodyte communities until 1915. Peak Cavern is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster and several tours are conducted daily. 

Torside is a traditional Derbyshire limestone cottage set in its own garden. It is a vernacular building with rubble walls and wooden floors suspended over the bare earth. It is decorated to English Heritage standards and all external walls are lime plastered with pony hair binding it together!
