very welcoming

A wonderful welcome, Janet & John are very welcoming into their home. A lovely room, very clean & plenty of tea / coffee & milk on offer in a fridge! It’s ideal for a mini break in the Peak District.
Breakfast was amazing & plenty of it too.
Would definitely recommend this place to stay and we’ll be back again. 10/10 thank you.

Amazing Hosts. Amazing Time

We have just arrived back from this most magnificent place! We would highly recommend staying at castle green, the hosts -John and Janet- are just so lovely. So welcoming, giving advice on local restaurants and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in room 5 which was absolutely beautiful, very clean, quiet and with a comfortable bed. The extras such as a fridge, ceiling fan and even usb ports were just personal touches that give it a 5star. This place is situated in a perfect position with beautiful surroundings. We love to walk and wow the walks around here are superb. But then in the evenings it is literally a 10 minute walk to all the amazing bars and restaurants so it really is the best of both worlds. The garden is stunning, we had a few drinks there in the evenings listening to the lovely waterfall and looking at the beautiful flowers. The breakfast was delicious with so much choice. All in all we had a fantastic stay and already looking at dates we can come back. Thank you x


B&B is one of the very best

We had a lovely time in an amazing B&B with fantastic hosts our room was spotless and stunning well worth the money – as for the breakfast full English it was tremendous and free parking with free WiFi this B&B is one of the very best .

Great Stay

We should have been in Portugal and when we found out we couldn’t go we booked Castle Green for a couple of nights get away, which is my first experience of a Guest House.
I have to say it was excellent!
The rooms and bathrooms are lovely, modern, new and spotlessly clean all having a mini fridge. Breakfast was fabulous, cooked to order and lots of options, using good quality products. Much nicer than hotel buffet style. Janet and John were extremely friendly and helpful, giving lots of local advice on where we could go. Lovely little local pub a few minutes walk, with its own little microbrewery and amazing ales and excellent tapas. A great Indian restaurant also close by, and then the option to return to the guest house and sit in the garden pergola with a patio heater and a night cap, admiring the beautiful garden, flowers and lights. Would thoroughly recommend!!
Thank you John & Janet! ‘
