  • "The cottage was very well equipped and with the walls being really thick it helped to keep it cooler as we were staying during the heatwave."

    The patio area was lovely and peaceful with great views. I would definitely recommend a stay here and the host was very friendly. So many places to visit within a few miles. PERFECT !!!!

  • "Cottage was lovely, very convenient for Matlock, Buxton, Bakewell and Belper plus many attractions."

    Only negative was the poor shower pressure. I also found the sofas too low, but then I have back issues, but that's my problem not the cottage.

  • "We had an amazing last minute stay at Aunt Jane's and loved every second."

    The cottage was perfect for the 3 of us and had everything we needed. The 'secret' garden at the back was delightful and proved to be a peaceful, sun-trap to sit in the evenings after days out exploring. We will definitely be back.

  • "Loved this location."

    Nice and quiet with the charm of a working farm. It's cosy, but comfortable with all we needed for a family of 3. Will probably be back.

  • "A cosy comfortable cottage, very clean."

    I don't think the photos do it justice. A nice area for sitting out at the back. Owners Jill & Mick were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. It's well situated for White Peak activities, particularly the local trails and Carsington Water, also in easy reach of Matlock. Average speed reliable broadband with Wi-Fi.

    There is a pleasant sitting out area at the back which I hadn't expected. You do need to bring toilet rolls and washing up tablets for the dishwasher as only one is provided.

    Gill and Mick were so lovely and our little boy really took to them. The barn was a lovely base for our daily adventures, and the fact we could see the tractor in the barn from our doorstep made our little boy’s holiday!

    For quiet relaxation the cottage was sited perfectly on a working farm Jill and Mick were always on hand if there were any problems but generally left us to enjoy the area The cottage is sited where you can travel quite easily to various destinations within the Peak District so Matlock Ashbourne were easily reached within half an hour Ideal if you are a National Trust enthusiast or just want to chill out

    It was in a very rural setting, but only a few minutes away by car to lots of places of interest.

    Every thing else was fine.

  • "An excellent base to visit many of the attractions of this part of the peak District."

    We visited Bolsover Castle,lots of heritage industrial sites in and around Cromford and Matlock - Lumsdale Valley, Cromford Canal; Tissington, Monsal Trail and High Top, the fantastic High Peak Bookshop and cafe, Fenny Bentley Coach and Horses, Hurdlow Royal Oak, Wirksworth "Mistral", Buxton and the Museum plus the shops at Ashbourne. All a bit cultural and with some costs involved but walking along the many tracks and lanes to find the various archaeological sites was free, the weather fantastic, and the countryside looked pristine - great for anyone with interests in drawing, painting or photography - I was very happy on these outings! The cottage was not too easy to find at Aldwark but was comfortable, and had everything we needed including wifi (better than at home), and the little terrace at the back was a good place to eat!

About the location


Bakewell 6 miles; Matlock 4.5 miles.

The conservation village of Winster is situated within the White Peak area of 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. There are 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.
