Casterne Hall is the ideal place to base yourself and your group of fellow walkers whilst you explore the magnificent scenery of the surrounding area. Both Dovedale and the Manifold Valley are a stone's throw away. Why not start your day with a hearty breakfast or finish with a homemade cream tea!
The Manifold Showground to the north of the house is the ideal setting on which to erect a marquee. Or how about being adventurous and opt for a yurt or teepee? In this beautiful and remote spot with magnificent views, it will be a night to remember!

Letter to the Ashbourne News Telegraph:
'My husband and I were lucky enough to get tickets for a guided tour with Christmas Tea at Casterne Hall last Friday afternoon. What a treat!
'As soon as the host, Charles Hurt, opened the door to welcome us you were greeted by the most fantastic smell of Christmas and the beautiful sight of the dining table all laid ready for the big day.
'We were given a short talk about the hall and then invited to wander around all the rooms where the doors were open (even bedrooms). What a superb warm welcoming family home it is.
'After our tour, Caroline, Charles' wife, invited us into the fantastic kitchen for a beautiful afternoon Christmas tea.
'We took ours into the comfy sitting room, enjoying it by a roaring fire, watching the huge snowflakes floating by the windows.
'A couple of weeks ago we went around Chatsworth decorated for Christmas, but I have to say that I enjoyed this more.
'Thank you to the Hurts for opening up Casterne and giving us such a lovely welcome into their beautiful home.'
