The Peak District National Park region

The Peak District is the first English national park and has fantastic scenery and great opportunities for walking and visiting towns such as Bakewell and Buxton, great houses including Chatsworth and Haddon Hall and fascinating gardens. There are various festivals such as well dressing and Wakes and Wirksworth has its own marvellous Arts Festival every September. Plus a range of local pubs with beer from micro breweries and tea shops with delicious cakes.

Winster

Winster is an old lead-mining village, situated on a hillside a little reminiscent of Cornwall. Miners from Cornwall came to help with the mining in this area and influenced the layout of the village. We are close to both Haddon Hall and Chatsworth and you can walk for miles from the cottage. Cycling is also possible on the local trails but slightly hilly to get there so make sure you have gears or a bike rack! The area is geared up for tourism and has everything from a theme park, Gullivers Kingdom to the quietness of Stanton Moors where you can find several stone circles. We live next door so always happy to help providing information and a pick up from Matlock Station if need be.

"Quirky and characterful - idyllic location"

The best way to sum up the Spook is quirky. It's very small and cosy – the CH works a treat and I bet it's warm in winter. It's right in the middle of Winster, which is a charming Der… More

I have now improved the wifi to throughout the cottage with a more reliable service. Mobile signal is poor generally in the Peak District. I use TuGo to receive mobile phone calls through the internet (at our home next door) which is available to 02 customers. Mobile reception is possible in the sleeping loft or by the garden bench in The Spook garden.
