Candlelight Cottage is situated in the picturesque Peak District village of Litton. The area is rich with history and culture.
The Peak District is very accessible from all directions. Many guests arriving from London or the home counties are pleasantly surprised at their journey time. We are only a three hour drive from London, but our rural village feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the capital.
Guests from neighbouring counties such as Cheshire, Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire Lincolnshire or Staffordshire find Litton a short and easy drive at the end of the working week and can be installed and ready to start their holiday by dinner time!
