“Beautiful period cottage. Cosy”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2012

Super little cottage nestled in the heart of Winster. Every comfort catered for. A lovely period cottage with stylish, contemporary kitchen and bathroom. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great little pubs nearby with plenty of character, nice food and drink, and very pleasant staff. Great walk over to Stanton Moor. Fabulous all round. Many thanks!

“Quiet, romantic, cottage for 2”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2012

Lovely romantic cottage for 2. Very cosy and comfortbale. Set back off the main street so no noise noticed once tucked up inside the cottage. Brilliant nights sleep in the comfy bed, would highly recommend to others. Definately need a car to get around to local attractions. We visited Carsington water, lots of things to do on the water all reasonably priced but also a lovely walk/bike ride around the lake if being on the water sin't for you. Didn't manage to get to the local pub as was closed the first two days we were there and the last days weather was awful so we just stayed inside. Phone reception was non existent in the village which wasn't a problem but just be aware, but does have wifi so can contact people via social networks/email/skype etc so would advise to have something that you can connect up. Some lovely towns/villages close by to visit Matlock/Matlock Spa, Bakewell, Ashbourne and I'm sure many more. We only had a short break 3 nights and 2 full days so not much time to venture to many places. This cottage comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for a relaxing getaway to either be in the peak district and see what it has to offer or to getaway and enjoy just being with your partner in a cosy cottage in a remote location.
