The conservation village of Winster is situated within the Peak District National Park and is an extremely pretty place with a charming 17th Century market house at its centre and other imposing 18th Century houses, nearly all three storeys, on its three main streets - Main Street, East Bank and West Bank. Less dignified, but no less endearing, are the little alleyways or ‘ginnels’ off Main Street which are well worth exploring. The village is famous for its Morris dancers, Wakes festivities (every June) and its annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race - a fascinating spectacle! Within the village there is a well-stocked community general store incorporating a Post Office, and two pubs - both serving food and local traditional beers. Bakewell, Chatsworth and Matlock are all nearby and, for keen walkers, the village lies within 5 miles of the Tissington and High Peaks walking/cycling trails and The Limestone Way.

Mrs Barks, Nottingham, November 2011
The cottage was so cosy and warm to return to in the evening. My Mum, who is in her 70's, didn't want to go home! I love the way the way the owner had kept original features but has modernised it to such an excellent standard. The scenery is just stunning. What a wonderful place to live.
