      Well appointed cottage with everything you need and good food in a neaby pub (a few minutes walk). Good walking in the area and not far to visit Buxton or Bakewell. Highly recommend a stay here. Read full review

    Litton is easy to reach without a car and over the years we have had a number of people who have come on public transport and who have used buses to get around very successfully during their stay with us..

We are always happy to help with your travel arrangements, especially if you come on public transport.
