    The cottage is lovely. The only slight reservation we have is that the lounge is small and definitely only for two people but this will not stop us booking Christmas Cottage again.

About the location


Bakewell 6 miles; Matlock 4.5 miles.

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 grocer’s shop, a Post Office/Gift Shop 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.
