Situation - The property is situated in the centre of Castleton, a desirable and very sought after Peak District village with a great deal of tourism and visitors from all over the world. This desirable village is approximately 15 miles to the west of Sheffield, 10 miles north east of Buxton and 16 miles north west of Chesterfield. The village is made up of a mixture of privately owned residential dwellings and various other pubs, hotels and various small shops. It is famous for the local Blue John Mine and the local caverns.
History - Rose Cottage is built on an ancient track that was used by the people from the village of Edale and they used it when they walked to Castleton Church for services and to bring their dead for burial. It was custom to keep some of the doors to Rose Cottage unlocked as it was a legal 'right of way' existing from the 12th Century until the 1970's when it was legally closed. Castleton itself was developed as a planned town somewhere between 1100 and 1200 like many others in England after the Norman Conquest. Most of the houses in Castleton were of a humble origin and were so badly built they did not survive. These first cottages contained only one or two rooms with small doors and small windows.
There are a number of nine substantial early stone and wood buildings, known as cruck houses or barns and these buildings were constructed on the original Norman planned streets; Cross Street, Back Street, How Lane, Castle Street and Market Square.
Rose Cottage was part of a cruck barn that was built about 1450 during the reign of Henry VI. By the early 1600's it has been divided up into separate properties during the reign of Charles I. At the start of the 1800's the east end of the barn became a genral store and Jasmine Cottage. These properties are now adjacent to Rose Cottage, which was sold a couple of years ago. Rose Cottage has been a Tea Room for over 100 years, the first people to run the Rose Cottage Tea Room were prior to 1895.
