Location description from owner
The England region
The Peak District National Park was the first National Park to be formed and is the most popular National Park in the UK.
This is not surprising, given that the connurbations of Sheffield, Manchester and Birmingham are all within an hour's drive.
If you like walking there are many footpaths in and around Winster, most notably the Limestone Way. Walks to nearby Birchover, Elton and Robin Hood's Stride are very popular. Cycling along the Tissington Trail and High Peak Trail offer long distance, traffic free cycling with bike hire available all year round.
Close by are the delightful towns of Bakewell, Ashbourne and Matlock which are ideal for groceries and shopping.
Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall Hardwick House and Bolsover Castle are all within a short drive of Winster.
Gulliver's Kingdom theme park in Matlock Bath is a great place to entertain younger children and for older children, Chesterfield contains a 10 screen cinema and bowling alley whilst Alton Towers is only 40 mins drive away.
Winster Village was once a thriving lead mining village that boasted 20 pubs and 2000 residents. Today it is a popular tourist destination which still retains its village community. The age old tradition of the Winster Wakes, complete with Morris dancing, still continue today.
The old part of the village contains some fine historical buildings such as the Market House and the poorhouse. The hillside to the north has many of the old lead mining cottages for which the village is renowned.
The roads of East Bank and West Bank are bi-sected by footpaths, known locally as gennels, that allow walkers to view Winster's beautiful cottage gardens. Each year, Winster opens these gardens to the public when it hosts the Secret Gardens of Winster weekend.
The pubs at Winster include the Miners Standard and the Bowling Green , the latter being the 2009 CAMRA winner for local pubs.
Winster is a great base for exploring the Peak District.

“Perfect Peak District cottage, packed with charm”
This was my second stay at The Croft, and it won't be my last. The cottage is full of character and makes the perfect base for long walks, complete with crackling fire and hot bath at the end of a long, cold day! Loved every minute and look forward to being back in the future.
“Exellent holiday cottage”
We spent a wonderful 4 days here in the Peak District. The cottage is absolutely perfect and very well located in a super village with 2 pubs and a small shop. The owner was incredibly helpful - we would definitely stay here again.
What a beautiful little gem The Croft in Winster is!!! The cottage is very welcoming and warm and very well appointed! A lovely retreat to return to after a hard days walking with our two dogs. We had very thing we needed supplied in the cottage and to be able to use the garden so late in the season was an added bonus.......views to die for!!!! We found the village and villagers extremely friendly and enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch in one of the village pubs The Bowling Green. Will definitely look to return again!!
“Excellent getaway cottage”
A delightful few days spent in this beautiful cottage and village. The cottage was perfect for a family of four; couldn't fault it. Communication with owner was first class. Would definitely say here again
“Lovely cosy cottage equipped to a very high standard”
Really lovely cottage equipped to a very high specification. We stayed when the weather was dank and gloomy and it was lovely to arrive to a warm and cosy cottage. The views from the garden are fantastic and in summer the outdoor space for eating would be lovely. The stairs are very steep and so is the walk down to the village and this would be a problem for anyone with walking difficulties.
“Exceeded our expectations”
The cottage is lovely and is in the idyllic village of Winster, in a very beautiful area of the country. The village shop and village pub are great. We had a fantastic meal at the pub in the neighbouring village. Myself, My husband, 2 kids and our dog stayed for a long weekend. The garden is small and perfect. Because it is at the top of the village the views are spectacular.
I am glad to hear you had a wonderful stay at The Croft. Winster is very peaceful, a real gem in the Peak District. I do hope you return in the future.
