  • "We had a wonderful week staying at Andlestone ."

    The property is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. It is a beautifully converted church with an open plan living area which is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Birchover is a quaint village with 2 pubs  , we ate out at The Druids Inn and had the most delicious locally made pies . There are numerous walks from the door step and we walked 40 miles during our stay . Thank you to Andrea and David for the cake and wine waiting for us upon arrival. We would definitely recommend this property.

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review - we were delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at Andlestone! We are lucky to have such a beautiful building and we agree that Birchover is a charming village, with the two pubs setting it off perfectly! We think you probably deserve a prize for walking so far in one week! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Property Owner

    Very comfortable and warm. Good food at both local public houses and an excellent village shop a mile across the fields in Winster. Lovely holiday. Thank you very much.

  • "Great holiday and the accommodation was perfect - exactly as described."

    The only minor grumble was the uncomfortable pillows - but that would be easy to remedy! Thanks

  • "Superbly appointed accommodation,very clean and well equipped."

    Loved the open plan upstairs, and the and sympathetically restored Chapel, with original windows. In a lovely village with great nearby walks, accessible to Bakewell, Chatsworth House and many other places to visit. 2 Pubs in the village, one only recently opened. Had some lovely meals at the Druid Inn. Will visit again.

    What a super review - thank you so much, it was really touching to read it! We agree that the open plan living area is what sets Andlestone apart in terms of properties in this area - a great space to spend time as a family. We hope that we can welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "Firstly the positives, great location with access to lots of what the Derbyshire Dales has to offer."

    The place was very clean and the bathrooms clean and modern. The living room area was nice and comfortable and having 2 pubs in the village gave us a nice choice. Secondly, the negatives, the kitchen is quite small and not great when you're trying to prepare a meal for 5 adults and it could really do with a bigger fridge. The corkscrew was broken, which we didn't realise until we tried to use it which put everyone into a panic as you can imagine. The ladies thought a hairdryer would have also been a nice touch. The biggest issue for us was the single bed mattresses. These are fine I imagine if they are being used by kids but for adults with older bones they weren't very comfortable. We did have a lovely stay though and would recommend the place if you only intend to have kids in the single beds and plan to eat out most evenings. Thanks

    Thank you for coming to stay at Andlestone and taking the time to leave a review. We are so pleased that you found Andlestone to been clean and appreciated the modern bathrooms. We think that the combination of old and new, coupled with the fantastic location, are what helps make Andlestone so special. Thank you for your other comments. We do monitor guest feedback closely and, in light of that, we have now replaced all of the mattresses and one of the sets of bedding at the property. We have also now placed a hairdryer in the main bedroom. We can empathise with your panic at finding the broken corkscrew! We can only apologise for this, it had been broken by previous guests who unfortunately hadn't told us. We replaced it straight after your stay and hope that we can welcome you back in the future to enjoy a bottle of wine on us! Property Owner

  • "This was an affordable stay with a spacious lounge area, however the kitchen was not sufficient for self catering and the 4x single mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable which somewhat spoilt the trip."

    Thank you for staying at Andlestone and taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry that you found the single mattresses uncomfortable. You were the first guests to make this comment and since your stay, we have now replaced all of the mattresses and also one of the sets of bedding at the property. In terms of the kitchen, just to clarify, Andlestone has a full kitchen, which is well equipped. From your email to us, we understand that you would have liked the kitchen to be bigger. We understand that each guest is different and that at the current time guests are eating in more often than they would have done previously. As you say, the lounge area is very spacious, we feel that the large, open-plan living and dining area is what makes Andlestone unique. Other guests have commented on how much they loved sitting around the large table as a family. Increasing the size of the kitchen would eat into this space and so we feel that, on balance, the size of the kitchen is appropriate. We do hope that we can welcome you back in future Property Owner

  • "The property is amazing and unusual."

    Everything was very clean and neat. We were there 2 weeks and the cleaning company came in half way through to change the bedding and towels. We had a problem with one of the bathroom doors and the owner was very quick to respond and fix it. I would ask that you make it clear that there is no garden as we took our dog. Also if you are staying 2 weeks as we did there is very little storage space for food But overall an amazing stay. We left lots of recommendations in the book of places to see and eat. A

  • "Andlestone and the village of Birchover were excellent."

    Andlestone was spacious, we loved the open plan living area upstairs and it had all the amenities we needed. For a family holiday, it was lovely to be able to have everyone together, particularly around the large table upstairs, which was great for board games. We all said we would love to go back. Birchover had great walks, great views and an excellent, friendly local pub. We didn't need anything else!

    It's a charming building, with lots of interesting features, and location couldn't be better - we did two good walks right from the front door, and had a choice of two excellent pubs to choose from on our return.

  • "Beautiful converted chapel that has been lovingly restored to a high standard."

    Extremely comfortable and very clean. Good facilities. A real bonus to find a place of this high quality that allows dogs. Great location-10min drive from Bakewell and Matlock. Two pubs in the village itself. Great walks nearby with lots of suggestions from the owners of the cottage. Biscuits and wine on arrival! The weekend was perfect. We didn’t want to leave such an idyllic place and felt privileged to have been able to spend time in such a beautiful building. It really is gorgeous and you should stay there if you can. We want to go back as soon as possible!

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.
