The Peak District National Park region

The Peak District is Britain's first national park, established in 1951, visited by people from all over the world. They come to find peace, tranquillity and adventure, experiencing some of England’s finest climbing, caving, walking, cycling and canoeing. It has something for everyone from vast expanses of wild and remote landscapes to some of the prettiest and friendliest villages in the country.

The Peak District is uniquely accessible making it ideal for short breaks whilst it has facilities and attractions which would easily fill a longer break all year round .

For those preferring a more leisurely break, the Peak District has more than its fair share of stately homes, village tea shops and craft centres.


Winster is a very friendly ancient lead-mining village in the Derbyshire Peak District that has existed since as far back as the doomsday book (1086). It has many medieval buildings that date back to the hey-day of its mining legacy.

There are many intriguing narrow pathways that lead up and around the village winding past the cottages that huddle on the hillside.

The village has a National Trust Historic Market Hall, two excellent pubs, a well stocked village shop and post office, two churches, playing fields, basketball and tennis courts, and several playground areas.

The village has a busy social calendar with events such as Wakes carnival week in June and Secret Gardens in July being the main events. There are also the famous local Morris Dancers and the Guisers.

There are lots of interesting places to visit in the surrounding area all within a short drive; such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakwell (home of the famous Bakewell Pudding), Matlock Bath & Heights of Abraham, Carsington water and much much more......

"Beautiful cottage, everything you need for a perfect holiday."

Would highly recommend this holiday home, everything you think you could need and more! Owners helpful and accomodating. Lovely village, with lots of information in well organized folders at the cottage, to allow you to plan any trips, outings, meals etc.

"Had a lovely time, a luxury cottage in a great location."

A three night break for relaxation. We found the cottage very well appointed and comfortable. We liked how we could use the different rooms at different times of the day. Well equipped. Loved the décor and trimmings. It was very easy to access our favourite Peak sites by car and the nearest pub and village shop were easy to get to. One small suggestion - would be nice to have a couple of deck chairs to relax in the garden, which is a real sun trap and has fantastic borders.

Thank you for your great review, we put a lot of thought and effort into Ivy Cottage and its always good to get feedback. We do have lots outdoor seating and tables on the decking which guests are welcome to use on the garden but we will have to look into getting some deck chairs/sun loungers for guests to use, many thanks for your suggestion.

"Home from home, fantastic base for the Peak District."

We have just returned from a fantastic week away at Winster Cottage. It was one of those rare times where you feel immediately comfortable and at home and are very impressed by the cleanliness and facilities. Matt was extremely helpful with our booking and with reassuring us that the cottage was completely 'pet' free (due to my wife and mother-in-law's allergies) and even offered to remove the feather cushions on the sofas if this was a problem too. Becky was very welcoming on arrival and showed us everything we needed to know. It was apparent that Matt and Becky did not mind any questions/queries during our stay. Even Matt and Becky's neighbours were very friendly and helpful and gave my wife a cup of flour when the useful and well stocked village shop had closed on Sunday, and Matt and Becky were out. A fantastic cottage to base yourself in for the Peak District, I would have no hesitation in recommending it and would return again.

"Had an absolutely wonderful time"

Stayed for 3 nights with my wife and other family to celebrate my birthday. My wife had booked it as a surprise and it was brilliant, Becky and Matt have excelled with the work and personal touches they have put on the cottage as it is fabulous. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer.

"The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable"

First impressions were how clean it was. We were here for a weekend and the only disappointment was that we didn't have enough time to use all of the equipment! We tried very hard to use all of the sitting areas. The cosy lounge was first while watching the TV (no time for a film). In the morning it was reading the papers in the games room and finally the garden room Sunday afternoon. I would recommend for larger groups as plenty of room to spread out while also enough space to be together. The location was ideal for walking cycling and the shops in Matlock are nearby if needed. We only saw our hosts briefly (which suited us) but were encouraged and able to contact them easily if we required anything.

"Fantastic cottage"

The property was clean and very well equipped - we were looking for a quiet weekend with our young son and we were pleased to find a cottage with great facilities - TV, DVD player, Sky TV etc etc. The cottage was also very clean which made it easy to enjoy the weekend. The owners of the cottage provided really great service, answering all of our queries (even some stupid questions during our stay) promptly and helpfully.

"Perfect village getaway"

As we were coming over from Australia I booked this accommodation entirely based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. We were looking for a quiet place to base ourselves over Christmas, central to the places and people we were visiting whilst in England. This was just about perfect - the village is quiet but amenities and shops are only 5 min drive away in Matlock. Because of the holiday season, how busy we were and the rain (!), we didn't get to explore the village (or take any walks) much, but liked what we saw. The cottage itself is beautifully turned out with everything you need. It is heated centrally, but the gas fires were a welcome bonus after a day in the rain. The TVs, entertainment system, PS2, games, books, CDs etc will keep you and the kids entertained if you have the day in. The bedrooms are cosy and the main bathroom is awesome ! It was wonderful to arrive at a house for Christmas 12,000 miles from home to see it decorated beautifully with Christmas trees, crackers etc and the lovely welcome basket of wine and assorted goodies. There is plenty do do in the area once you get your bearings - Bakewell for some cakes and Matlock Bath for a walk and fish n chips are musts. I was able to visit family 30 mins away and we had day trips to York and Liverpool, so pretty central. Matt and Becky are very welcoming and allow you your privacy, but are always available - Becky changing the linen halfway through was a nice touch. The only downsides were the pub hours at the Bowling Green (it was never open when we felt like a pint, but Matt explained that the owner is winding down !)...and the rain, we were so hoping for some snow - lol !!! This is a beautiful, homely cottage and should we be lucky enough to ever return would definitely stay again, and it is the only property we stayed at during our holiday I would say that about. I will also be letting everyone I know heading that way in the years ahead of this lovely place.

"Can't rate this place highly enough"

I would highly recommend this cottage, the location and the Peaks. My wife and I, our 6 month old baby, my parents and my sister all went here for a long weekend and thoroughly loved this place. The cottage is so much better than we even expected and one thing I would say to Matt and Becky is that the website doesn’t do it enough justice!! The standard of finish in the cottage is first class, with every little thing covered and all mod cons provided. It is really a home from home or even a luxury from home. The bedrooms are all of a good size, very comfy beds and the main bathroom is so luxurious. My baby loved swimming around in the mega bath, and my wife loved the luxury shower. Downstairs there is 2 living rooms with fancy tvs and very high standard sofas and surroundings. They have clearly taken the thought to decorate it throughout with a modern feel but keeping in the tradition of the cottage. The large dining room and extended relaxing breakfast area makes a nice place to eat, then relax whilst reading the morning papers. As I said before all little extras make it 5 star in my opinion from the DVD catalogue to the mini library if you fancy a read, to the welcome pack with the proper coffee maker. We had a problem with the kettle when we were there and Becky sorted it by the time we had come back from our day out. Winster is a lovely little village and feels oldy-worldy English with 2 good pubs. We had the joy of a couple of hours by the log fire in the Green (nearest pub) whilst baby was looked after by her grandparents, and it was bless. The Miners pub up the hill was my favourite and is worth the walk up the hill. The village is small but has a well-stocked and reasonable priced shop. Within 10-15 minutes is Madlock and the beautify Matlock Bath as well as major shops. 5 minutes further is the equally impressive Bakewell. Other attractions are near also but with a 6 month old we had restrictions. Last thing - there is good off road parking, the village is nice and peaceful and the gardens are so nice. Free WiFi was also a nice touch.

"Wonderful place to stay"

We were greeted as soon as we arrived and given a tour and information about the house. The house is delightful and the village very interesting with great walks in most directions. So much is in the close vicinity you could never get bored. Thoroughly enjoyed our busy but relaxing break.

"Fantastic cottage, beautiful area, great owners!"

Having been to Ivy Cottage a number of times I can honestly say it is the best cottage we have stayed in anywhere in the UK. We have stayed as a couple with our 3 year old son, and with a larger group. Either way the cottage is able to accomodate brilliantly whilst never feeling too big or too small regardless of how many people are in. We certainly plan on returning in the future. Matt and Becky the owners are meticulous in the care and respect they have for both the cottage which is always in fantastic condition and also with regards to their guests. Thanks both of you for all the holidays we have had at Ivy Cottage to this point, we shall return!
