Winster is ideally placed to explore The Peak District. Many walks from the door, two pubs, village shop, cafe and buses to Matlock and Bakewell.
A bright comfortable stone built cottage situated in a very quiet part of the village, yet only 3 minutes walk to the shop, post office, bus stop, pub and village church. The secluded garden enjoys the sun all day. Secure parking is situated on hard standing next to the barn in our field.
The cottage will accommodate up to four adults in comfort - you will all have plenty of space!
We also have a folder where we ask visitors to list their favourite pubs, walks, shops, villages and anything else they care to mention. This really is a 'tell it how it is' guide.
You may wish to plan your visit to coincide with one or more of our village events, Pancake Races, Wakes Week, Secret Gardens, Winster Guisers or Quiz Nights - take a look at the Winster Village Website for details.

Sunnyspot is a no smoking cottage, and we regret we cannot accept pets because of the livestock in the adjacent field.
The cottage has an open staircase, and three stone steps leading up to the garden at the back, so we suggest children should be supervised at all times.
We ask guests to try to arrive from 2.30pm onwards on the first day and to try to vacate the cottage by 10.30am on the last day, this allows time for thorough cleaning of the cottage.
For what our guests thought, please look at our fabulous reviews on TripAdvisor further down this page - we are really thrilled that they have enjoyed the cottage so much, and even though it's our first year, we already have repeat bookings.
The Heart of England/Peak District
Winster is a former lead mining village close to many superb attractions. Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall are all within easy reach. For the children, The Height of Abraham and Alton Towers are a drive away, and there are so many fabulous walks, trails, villages, pubs and other places of interest to visit.
For a small village, Winster has a lot going on. Shrove Tuesday sees the closing of Main Street for the Pancake Races. The Street is closed again for Carnival Day which is the last day of Wakes Week - a week long festival full of events including quizes, hill race, pet shows, and all the events you would expect from a tradtional village. Carnival Day starts with a fancy dress parade and also features the famous Winster Morris Dancers.
A couple of weeks later is our Secret Gardens. A hugely popular weekend with hundreds of visitors enjoying many open gardens, and sampling cream teas, Pimms and homemade ice creams.
Check out the winster.org website for more information.

"Great base for our holiday!"
Sunnyspot is a fantastic cottage, centrally located in beautiful Winster. We were no more than 30 - 40 mins from all activities throughout our stay. Coming back each day to Sunnyspot made the break more relaxing and memorable. A great cottage!

"An idyllc, gorgeous & characterful cottage that eminates peace & tranquility."
Superb cottage with all facilities of high standard. Wonderful peaceful & private location within the village, ideal if you need to unwind. Also well situated to get to all areas of the Peaks. The owners, Esther & John, are respectful of your privacy but also very friendly & welcoming. Can't recommend it highly enough. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Sunnyspot. The cottage has a delightful character and helped in no small part to make for a very relaxing holiday. The garden provides a further extension to the lovely character where we could watch the swifts as they swooped around overhead.
We hope to come back again so that we can explore more of the delights the Peak District has to offer.
Many thanks for the review Andy - as you know there's much more to see in The Peak District, so we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

"Fantastic Holiday. Great cottage. We loved it!"
We had a fantastic holiday. Lovely cottage which was very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and well equipped. The sunny garden was private, peaceful and great for relaxing in. The owners live next door and were extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter loved playing with their dog Mac and collecting eggs from the chickens in their field. Lovely village and a great location for exploring the Peak District. Best UK holiday ever. We definitely want to come back again. Highly recommended!

"Lovely cottage in the heart of beautiful Winster"
Lovely cottage in the heart of Winster. Spotlessly clean the cottage had all the facilities to make our stay very comfortable. It also has beautiful gardens and is very quiet even though it was in the heart of the village. The owners were also very friendly and available for advice if required.
Certainly would recommend it to anybody who requires a very clean and quiet base in the heart of the Peak District.

Lovely warm cozy cottage with everything we needed. There was deep snow outside and so we could sledge outside the front door and build an igloo out the back! Very nice kitchen and well equipped. Wins… More

"A delightful Stay!"
My partner and I have had several short breaks this year in various parts of the country including the Peak District. Both of us agreed that Sunnyspot was the best property we had stayed in.
The cottage, which retains some charming features, is cosy and very clean. It is also in a quiet location with pleasant views, despite being in the heart of the delightful village of Winster.
The cottage's owners were helpful, accommodating and always on hand if needed, but without being at all intrusive.
I would readily recommend Sunnyspot to anyone who is looking for high standard accommodation at a reasonable price.
