The England region

Britain's first national park, established in 1951, is 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 and cycling. The National Park is also home to 38,000 people.

The local economy is based on tourism, farming, quarrying and manufacturing.

The Chatsworth estate, home of the Duke of Devonshire, Haddon Hall together with the market towns of Bakewell and Buxton must head up a formidable list of places of interest to visit and explore.

Winster

Winster is a picturesque village in the south-east of the Peak District National Park. It occupies an upland location 215 to 275 metres (700 to 900 feet) above sea level.

The name 'Winster' is first recorded in Domesday Book (1086) as Winsterne, which possibly means 'Wyn's thorn tree', presumably after a local landmark.

The village is located in a broad valley where the steep limestone bank to the south meets the shales and grit stones to the north. The geology gives Winster much of its distinctive character, both in the walled fields with their limestone outcrops and in the mixture of limestone and grit stone from which the houses are built. The only substantial brick building is the Market House.

Lead mining, for which Winster is famous, may have had its origins here in Roman times, for the Romans certainly mined in this part of Derbyshire. The boom in mining from the late seventeenth century saw the population rise to 2,000 by 1750 and turned the village into a prosperous town, one of the largest in the county. But flooding in the mines became a problem as the workings went deeper, and eventually it forced many of them to shut down.

The first-time visitor is invariably surprised by its grand Main Street, closed in by the Market House at one end and the Dower House at the other, and by the jumble of tightly packed cottages spreading down the lanes and high up Winster Bank. A number of the buildings on Main Street, some of which were once shops, date from the hey-day of mining.

The two grandest buildings are Winster Market House (now owned by the National Trust) and Winster Hall. The cottages which huddle together on the hillside, known as Winster Bank, are more likely to have been the modest homes of the poorer miners, quarrymen and agricultural workers and their families. They spread out between two steep roads, East Bank and West Bank, and are linked by a web of narrow pathways. All around are mine shafts and grassy mounds left over from the period of lead mining.

“Lovely small cottage in a pretty village”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2016

Had a great short break in this lovely cottage. Owners and village in general very friendly. Some great walks on the door step and dog friendly pubs.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was lovely to meet you all and are we're glad you had a good stay.

“Fabulous Cottage”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2012

A lovely cosy cottage with a fantastic view in a beautiful spot in Winster. The cottage has every thing you need as a home from home. Clean, comfortable, cosy and well decorated. Winster is a lovely village with lovely friendly locals and pet friendly pubs. We stayed the weekend of Whit week with our little dog Lillie and everybody either stopped to have a chat or smiled and said hello as they walked past. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the very best of the Peak District no matter what the weather. We will be looking to stay there again in the near future Chris & Pete Roberts
