The property

A stunning Grade II listed country house, built by Francis Moore in 1628, set in its own beautiful grounds in the middle of the conservation village of Winster, in the Peak District National Park.

Occupied by the Moore family in the 17th century, the Hall later became a Coaching House and Inn, and in the 19th century, Llewellyn Jewitt, a local antiquary, occupied the Hall and his gravestone can be found in the local church cemetery.

Set over three floors, the Hall stands back from the main street behind the original stone-built gateway.

As befits a country home of this grandeur, the building is full of rich history, character and charm, and provides ideal holiday accommodation for friends and family to get away from it all and enjoy this majestic and historic home.

This superb Derbyshire holiday home boasts many original features including quoins, a cornice topped by a parapet, a beautiful balustrade, ornate ceilings and beautiful fireplaces.

Providing spacious accommodation, the ground floor offers a spacious dining room with a cosy sitting area with a large open fire and a beautiful hand-painted ceiling.

The spacious, adjoining kitchen is well equipped and leads to a delightful conservatory area, great for dining in the summer, while a ground floor bedroom provides flexibility for the less able guests in the party.

The wide, elegant staircase leads to the first floor, where there are two spacious bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms and one with a romantic four poster bed.

The wonderful first floor sitting room is one of the real jewels in the crown; with feature windows on two sides providing a bright and spacious feel, as well as interesting views of the main high street, it provides a perfect space to relax and unwind, enjoy a family film or get out the board games.

The top floor of this wonderful Derbyshire holiday home boasts a further four bedrooms, including a stunning master bedroom with king-size four poster bed.

This wonderful Derbyshire home has the added benefit of a walled garden, formal gardens and a delightful courtyard; spend some time over breakfast in the courtyard area as you plan the day’s activities.

The large summerhouse contains the various games on offer to add to your enjoyment of the garden.

The conservation village of Winster boasts a well-stocked village shop and cafe as well as two excellent pubs, and is home to a 17th century Market House which is owned by the National Trust.

Matlock, Bakewell and Chatsworth House are close by, as well as magnificent walks from the doorstep.

Experience country living at its finest in this truly wonderful holiday home.

    • “It was lovely to have such a well appointed property for a special gathering of friends and family. The added bonus is that it is so well situated to enjoy the delights of the Derbyshire Peak District.”

    Mrs Williams, Barnsley, November 2015

    • “A large 17th century village country house made our celebration of a special birthday perfect. Family came from all over England and all commented on the house, village and surrounding area. Ages ranged from 8 months to 70 years and the house provided perfect flexibility.”

    Mr Hodgson, Preston, October 2015

    • “A fabulous house in a fantastic location. We have stayed in a lot of properties of this size and this is definitely the best we've stayed in”

    Mrs Tonge, Leamington Spa, October 2015

    • “Winster Hall was an unusual, rather grand venue for our big family gathering. We all loved it.”

    Ms Nestor, Mansfield, September 2015

    • “The house itself was faultless, with plenty of room to spread our family of 13. We have been taking a family holiday each year for twenty years now and I can honestly say this was the best house ever. Thank you for the care that has been taken and the attention to detail.”

    Mrs Kemp, Chorley, August 2015

    • “All amenities needed were provided, it was well furnished and had everything we needed. The owners answered questions promptly about the property in advance of our stay and were very accommodating with our requests. A good location, near to all tourist sites and with a pub and shop nearby.”

    Miss Butterfield, Solihull, May 2015

    • “We all appreciated staying in a grand building like this and we particularly enjoyed having a meal one evening for 17 people at that lovely dining table. On that occasion we used both the Aga and the double oven to do the cooking, which was useful. We all enjoyed having breakfast in the conservatory and hardly used the dining room.”

    Mrs Stott, Henley-in-Arden, April 2015

    • “Winster Hall was a wonderful venue for our large party. A beautiful old building with plenty of character and impressive, modern amenities. A great weekend!”

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 17th and 18th century houses, many three storeys high. The three main streets - Main Street, East Bank and West Bank are interconnected by alleyways known as ‘ginnels’, which are well worth exploring. The village of Winster is famous for its Morris dancers, the annual Shrove Tuesday pancake race, Wakes festivities in June, and the Secret Gardens of Winster event in July. Within the village there is a well-stocked, community-owned general store incorporating a Post Office and two pubs, both serving food and traditional beer. Bakewell, Matlock, Chatsworth House, and the Peak Rail Steam Railway are all nearby and, for keen walkers and cyclists, The Limestone Way runs along the edge of the village. The Tissington and High Peaks walking and cycling trails, with bike hire available, both lie less than 5 miles from the village, a wonderful base for exploring the Peak District.
