The Wills family project: Candlelight Cottage

Before we bought Candlelight Cottage, we spent many hours thinking about what we would want to find in a self catering holiday cottage ourselves and just as important, what we would not want to find! We made lists, quizzed our friends and bored our family to death.

Candlelight Cottage is the result and we are still always adding new items to make it even better.

We are committed to making your stay with us as happy and relaxed as possible and hope you will want to return again and again. This is how we measure our success and by the numbers of repeat bookings, we must be doing something right! Don’t take our word for it though, click to see what our guests say.

Candlelight Cottage is a family run, self catering holiday cottage business and we aim to do all we can to ensure you have a really good time here in the Peak District. We always welcome everyone personally on arrival and are available to help with anything you might wish to know both before and during your stay.

We like to introduce guests to locally made specialities by including a selection of them in our welcome pack. We are lucky to have several local pubs featured in The Good Pub Guide so there is plenty of choice when you go out to eat and drink.

We know how lucky we are to live in this beautiful area and are keen to reduce the impact of our business on the environment as much as possible. With this in mind, we operate a successful environmental policy. An important aspect of this is recognising and trading with other businesses which have adopted good environmental practices and which contribute to the conservation of The Peak District National Park. It has allowed us to add goods and services which enhance our guests’ stay with us and help the local economy. Click here to find out more.

In Candlelight Cottage, we feel we’ve created a home from home where people of all ages and interests can enjoy a truly relaxing holiday, surrounded by beautiful countryside. We look forward to welcoming you too.
